6 Of The Most Expensive Gifts Of All Time

Most people look at buying gifts as a burden, because there is always a problem that the other person may not like your idea. There are only three ways to ensure that your gift works. You either make the gift yourself using your creative prowess, or you purchase something personal that you are sure the other person needs, or you simply buy something really expensive. Some of the best gifts in the world are a mixture of one or two out of these three options. This list features some really crazy gifts given by people across the world.


6. The Statue Of Liberty
As we all know, the Statue of Liberty was given to the Americans by the French in order to commemorate the friendship between the two powerful nations. The statue is 151 feet tall and was designed by renowned designer Bartholdi. The statue cost the French 530,000 dollars to build, although it feels like it must be worth a hundred times more now.


5. The Kohinoor Diamond
This massive diamond was found in Andra Pradesh in India, many centuries ago when the British were ruling the country. The diamond was gifted to the Queen of England, Queen Elizabeth, and is still seen in the modern crown. This diamond is supposed to be priceless, almost literally, and is estimated to be worth over a billion dollars.


4. King Abdullah’s Gifts
King Abdullah, the king of Saudi Arabia, decided to go with a grand gesture in order show his cooperation and courtesy to US President Barrack Obama. He presented the President with various types of jewelry that is said to be cumulatively worth around 300,000 dollars.



3. The Orlov Diamond
‘Catherine the Great’, a Russian empress, is known to spend lavishly on the gifts for her military commander Grigory Orlov. So far, she has given the commander 800 serfs, a palace and lots of estate near St. Petersburg. The commander decided to show his appreciation to the empress by buying her a massive diamond and incorporated it into a scepter. The Orlov diamond weights 198.62 carats and is supposed to be worth 400,000 Rubles in 1798.


2. Roman Abramovich’s Sculpture
Roman Abramovich, one of the richest people in the world, recently purchased a bronze sculpture for his girlfriend. You might not think that a bronze sculpture would be that expensive, but this one was made by Swiss sculptor Alberto Giacometti, and is supposed to be worth 14 million dollars.


1. The Taj Mahal
The Taj Mahal is one of the seven wonders of the world now, but it was initially built by Mughal emperor Shah Jahan to show his love for his wife Mumtaz Mahal. The emperor actually asked to chop off all the hands of the people who worked on this monument so that it couldn’t be recreated in any part of the world.
