Most Expensive Earrings

sapphirediamonddropearr Most Expensive Earrings 2011One of the world’s oldest forms of body modification, the practice of wearing earrings has almost certainly been around longer than recorded history. The world’s most expensive earrings, on the other hand, were created much more recently.


Harry Winston’s Extraordinary Diamond Drop Earrings weren’t made by Harry Winston—he died nearly thirty years before they were made—but they remain an important part of his legacy. Created by the House of Winston in 2006, this pair of pear-shaped, diamond earrings weighs in at 60.1 carats altogether.

Winston himself was a jeweler famous for donating the Hope diamond, which he’d had in his possession for a decade, to the Smithsonian Institute in 1958. He got his start when he purchased Arabella Huntington’s jewelry collection, one of the largest of the time, and reworked them on his own to reflect contemporary fashion. His name has since been attached to the millions of dollars jewelry lent out to celebrities on Oscar night.

The most expensive earrings in the world are worth $8.5 million. They can be purchased from the House of Winston on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hill, California.
