What is the most expensive Christmas ornament in the world?
One of the most wonderful parts of
Christmas is sitting around the Christmas tree and admiring all of the precious
ornaments you’ve collected throughout the years. But if you want a truly
precious Christmas ornament, you’ll need to contact Mark Hussey, the designer of
the expensive piece. And you might be lucky enough to find it still on sale in
his Titchfield store.
The Christmas ornament is appropriately named, The
World’s Most Valuable Christmas Bauble, and is a beautiful Christmas ornament
designed in a snowflake pattern. Amongst the snowflakes this beautiful
decoration is adorned with 500 diamonds, three of which measure one carat each.
Orbiting around the snowflake bauble are two rings, which are all decked out in
rubies – 188 to be exact.
The World’s Most Valuable Christmas Bauble is made
with such incredible detail that its creation was only complete in November
2009, even though designer Mark Hussey had started it one year before on Boxing
Day (December 26) in the UK. During its construction the rings of the inner orb
were cast at the prestigious London’s Hatton Garden Jewelry Quarter.
All of this adds up to make The World’s Most
Valuable Christmas Bauble to be worth 82,000 pounds, which is little more than
