Revealed: Ultra-luxurious Christmas gift guide

0

We are all guilty of going on a spending binge right around Christmas time, but for a few of us, it is more about living the ultra-luxurious life and also making a wise investment on the way.

Vogue fashion features director Sarah Harris recently admitted that she has her eye set on a ‘Rene Boivin’s art deco platinum and diamond chevaliere ring’ this Christmas. Sold by the London-based Hancocks, the ring can be yours at £28,500 price tag.

However, if you are a more of a vintage watch person and want to add a collector’s piece to your Christmas collection, then check out “The Asprey”, which recently fetched $3,879,834 at an auction at Sotheby’s, making it the most expensive watch sold.

Breaking the auction record for a living artist, British-born David Hockney’s 1972 work ‘Portrait of an Artist’ was sold this year for a jaw-dropping tag of $90m!

If you are one of those who firmly believes that ‘diamonds are forever’, then look no beyond this gift. A rare pink diamond weighing 5.03 carats has recently set a new world record by selling for more than $2.9m!

If you are a newly-married couple looking for a snug, yet luxurious Christmas inspiration, take a look at Mike Tyson’s $2.2m 24 karat gold bathtub, which he bought some years ago.

There is more for gold lovers. A Channel 4 show had aired the story of Laban Roomes, a Dubai-based businessman famous for coating products in 24-carat liquid gold. He is reportedly offering £250,000 bicycles last Christmas!

Last but not least, this white crocodile Hermès Himalaya handbag has been sold recently for nearly $300,000, making it the most expensive handbag ever sold for in Europe. The bag is encrusted with 10.23 carats of diamonds and is considered “the Holy Grail in a Handbag collection”, according to Christie’s website.
