We receive gifts for birthdays, Christmas and other religious and ceremonial occasions. They are a sign of respect, love, affection and appreciation.
Although Christmas should not be all about a bunch of expensive gifts, these few people went one step too far while shopping for their loved ones. Here we shared some of the most expensive gifts in the history of giving, for anniversaries, birthdays and other occasions.
Marilyn Monroe said: “Diamonds are the best girl’s friend.” We would think that Elizabeth Taylor agrees with Marilyn. Elizabeth Taylor received a ring of 69.42 carats on her 40th birthday from her husband. The beautiful Taylor was the sex figure of her time and the most gorgeous women in the world. At the time, the estimated value of the ring was around $1,050,000.
The Most Expensive Sculpture
The beautiful Bronze sculpture called the Walking Man I is the most expensive sculpture ever sold at the art auction. This one of a kind sculpture is worth $104, 3 million. Who bought it? Roman Abramovich, one of the richest men in the world bought this sculpture for his girlfriend as a way to show his love and appreciation. One might say that love costs too much.
Imagine getting a yacht as a present. Well, Tina has received $84 million worth yacht from her husband, Anil Ambani. The name of the luxurious yacht, Tian is the combination of the first two letters of their names. The yacht that costs $84 million seems pretty extravagant present, but that’s what rich people do for love.
Shah Jahan, a famous ruler, constructed Taj Mahal for his beloved wife, Mumtaz Mahal. It’s one of the most famous buildings in the world and probably the most beautiful place in India. Most importantly, it’s a symbol of ultimate love, appreciation, and dedication. Taj Mahal was completed after 22 long years of hard work with a workforce of approximately 20 000 workers. That must be the most expensive gift in the history of giving.
In conclusion, let’s not forget that it’s not everything about money and expensive gifts. True love can’t be bought. Christmas is the time for our family and time when we give back to others as much as we can.
