What could be the world’s most expensive Barbie is going up for auction in New York later this month and could fetch up to a whopping $500,000.
The custom-designed Barbie doll sports a sparkling necklace featuring a one-carat pink diamond surrounded with two more carats of diamonds.
The doll will be offered up for auction on October 20 at Christie’s auction house for an estimated $300,000 to $500,000, which would thrash the current world auction record for a $17,091 Barbie set in 2006 at Christie’s London.
Jeweller Stefano Canturi arranged the emerald-cut, fancy vivid diamond in a geometric pattern with smaller white diamonds, totalling three carats. He also designed the doll’s black strapless dress, stilettos, hair and other features.
All proceeds from the Barbie’s sale will benefit The Breast Cancer Research Foundation in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.View Comments
