The Peacock Brooch by Graff: $100 Million
Graff is one of the most well-known names in the diamond industry, and is responsible for creating some of the most awe-inspired pieces of jewelry known to man. When we think of jewelry, we usually think in terms of necklaces, rings, and bracelets.
We often times do not think of brooches as being luxury items, but Graff has made a piece that will change that pattern of thought. Say hello to the Peacock Brooch by Graff, whose price tag is larger than a private jet. Though this brooch only measures a little over 10 centimeters in height, it displays over 1,000 gemstones, and weighs 120.81 carats.
The blue centerpiece of the peacock’s body weighs over 20 carats alone, and is regarded as one of the rarest blue diamonds in the world. The blue centerpiece has the ability to be removed so the owner can enjoy wearing the centerpiece alone if desired.
Would you pass up the opportunity to own a private jet for this beautiful bird?
