Most Expensive Baby Strollers

There are two main varieties of baby transport—the stroller and the baby carriage. Baby carriages, or prams, have the baby lying down while facing the pusher. Strollers, on the other hand, keep the baby seated and facing away from the pusher. With that in mind, we present the top examples of either method of baby transport.

World's Most Expensive Stroller

The stroller that may just be the most expensive stroller in the world is Kid Kustoms’ “The Roddler.” Its sleek design makes it look more like a classic car than a conveyance for your little one, thanks to a fender design based on 50s Buicks, Oldsmobiles and the like. The stainless chassis is inspired by aircraft designs and the custom seat and top can be made of ostrich, stringray, alligator, cow hide or alcantra. It even includes an iPod dock and DVD player. It can be customized with a variety of different colors as well as logos, your baby’s name, etc. and the price for a custom starts at $3500.

World's Most Expensive Baby Carriage

The most expensive baby carriage in the world is likely the Silver Cross Balmoral Pram. Silver Cross has been handcrafting traditional baby carriages in Northern England for over 100 years and the Balmoral Pram features three coats of lacquer for a perfect shine and quality English leather. Each one is unique and individually numbered. Priced at $2,900, you’re not likely to find a more expensive carriage on the market.

The Irish Government Seized The Most Expensive House In England After Its Owner Defaulted On $80 Million Mortgage

Ireland’s National Asset Management Agency just seized the most expensive home on the UK real estate market after its owners were unable to make good on an $80 million mortgage, according to The Daily Mail.

The mega-mansion, named Updown Court, is located just 25 miles outside of London and was recently listed for $123 million.

Owner Leslie Allen-Vercoe put the house on the market six years ago but has been unable to find a buyer, according to The Daily Mail. When contacted by reporters, Allen-Vercoe said he had no knowledge of the bank’s plans to put the estate into receivership.

The mortgage was reportedly provided by Irish Nationwide, which transferred many of its loans to the Irish government after it collapsed during the financial crisis.

Set on 58 acres of land, with 50,000 square feet of space, Updown Court is larger in size than both Buckingham Palace and Hampton Court Palace.

The behemoth home has five swimming pools, a $6 million marble heated driveway, a squash court, home theater, bowling alley, panic room, and much more.

World’s Most Expensive Jeans

The popular worker’s denim trousers have become modern day fashion and status symbols. Designer jeans come in and out of popularity but in the early 2000s, expensive jeans started coming back into fashion with brands such as APO Jeans, Chip and Pepper, Paper Denim & Cloth, Seven for All Mankind, True Religion and many other brands costing $200 or more per pair.

The Guinness Book of Records listed a pair of Gucci Genius jeans featuring elaborate feathers, beads, rips and buttons as most expensive jeans off-the-rack at a cost of $3,134 and Forbes once showcased Escada’s Swarovski crystal-encrusted jeans that sold for US $10,000.

Levi Strauss Company bid $46,532 to buy a pair of their own brand of denim pants back on the popular auction site eBay. However, the most expensive old jeans were an average pair of 501 jeans manufactured in the 1880s and purchased by a Japanese collector in 2005 for $60,000.

World's Most Expensive Jeans - Trashed Denim
Trashed Denim

None of those prices, however, can even hold a candle to that commanded by Dussault Apparel’s Trashed Denim line of luxury jeans. These men’s jeans are handmade using a special process where they are washed thirteen times, with dying and painting performed between each washing to add depth to the jeans. That’s not all, though, as each pair of Trashed Denim jeans is adorned with sixteen 1-carat rubies, twenty-six .05-carat rubies, eight .05-carat diamonds and 1080 grams of 18k white or rose gold.

So how much are the most expensive jeans in the world? Try a quarter-million dollars. That’s right; Dussault Apparel’s Trashed Denim jeans are priced at $250,000. They can be purchased at the Dussault store in Los Angeles or Kustom in New York City.

Most Expensive Earrings

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.

Most Expensive Pen in the world

What better way is there to show your dedication to the (hand)written word than to own the world’s most expensive pen? Okay, there might be a few better ways to do so. In fact, the most expensive pen’s true purpose is likely to show off just how much money you make as the CEO of some recently bailed-out corporation.

Hey, at least it’s really good at showing off.

Diamante contains over 30 carats of diamonds and its creators, Aurora, aren’t shy about telling you it’s the only pen in the world to have so many. That’s why they make one every year.

The pen is topped with a diamond cabochon—a polished, not faceted, gem—and is further decorated with almost two thousand DeBeers-certified “4 C” gems on a solid platinum barrel. Even the nib is precious, being fashioned from 18kt gold.

The asking price for the most expensive pen in the world is not available to the public, but is suspected to be around US $1.28 million. The purchaser may have the Diamante personalized with their coat of arms, signature or portrait.

Montblanc, a fountain pen and luxury goods manufacturer, and Van Cleef & Arpels, a jewelry house, are the creators of the former most expensive pen, a writing instrument known as the Mystery Masterpiece. The unique work took over a year and a half to create by skilled artisans and if you hurry you can have your choice of three variations, set with 20 carats of sapphires, emeralds, or rubies, and accented by almost 840 diamonds. The three versions of the expensive pens were limited to three releases each and each of the nine pens sold for $730,000.

The most Expensive Razor

The world’s most expensive razor has gone on sale for $100,000 (£62,460) – boasting two blades made out of sapphire.

Researchers spent three years developing the Zafirro Iridium, which has a handle made of 99.9 per cent pure iridium – the most corrosion-resistant platinum metal, found only in meteorites.

The two blades are made from white sapphire grown at a former Soviet Union lab in Ukraine.

They are just 80 atoms thick on their cutting edge – around 1/10,000th or 5,000 times thinner the width of a hair and far sharper than any of common blades on the market.

Just 99 Zafirro Iridiums will be made by American manufacturer Bright Light Ventures.

 

The company claims the sapphire blades will stay sharp for about a year and offer complimentary cleaning and re-sharpening for an entire decade.

A spokesman said: ‘Each Zafirro Iridium is custom made from the strongest, purest, and most durable materials available anywhere.

Expensive price tag: The Zafirro Iridium is being sold for $100,000 and only 99 of them will be made by the American manufacturerExpensive price tag: The Zafirro Iridium is being sold for $100,000 and only 99 of them will be made by the American manufacturer

‘Every component is designed to last for generations.’

The company claims it has used experience gained in fields such as rocket engine manufacturing, nanotechnology and particle physics to have created the new blade.

Each will be engraved with a serial number and monogrammed to the individual client’s specifications.

The inflated price tag is due to rare and expensive materials used for the handle and screws, all made of platinum.

Shaving technology: The blades are housed in a medical-grade stainless steel cartridge with the cartridge is held in place by 16 neodymium magnetsShaving technology: The blades are housed in a medical-grade stainless steel cartridge with the cartridge is held in place by 16 neodymium magnets

Iridium, usually used in space rockets, is ten times rarer than platinum and highly resistant to heat so theoretically it can be dropped it into lava, and it will not melt.

The blades are housed in a medical-grade stainless steel cartridge with the cartridge is held in place by 16 neodymium magnets.

Bright Light Founder Hayden Hamilton also plans to introduce an entry-level model that costs about the same as a compact car.

Most Expensive Stereo System

 

As one of the world’s largest consumer electronics trade shows, the IFA show in Berlin has certainly been host to some startlingly expensive electronic marvels. IFA 2007, which opened its doors on the last day of August, was no disappointment. Among the 1,212 exhibitors present at this year’s show was the aptly-named Audio magazine, there to show off the world’s most expensive stereo system.

World
Clearaudio Statement Turntable
This expensive stereo system includes JBL speakers that cost nearly $70,000 per pair, four 18-inch Velodyne subwoofers ($52,000), five Krell power amplifiers ($163,000) and a Mark Levinson pre-amplifier ($54,500). Then, of course, there’s the eye catching Clearaudio Statement Turntable, which adds another $137,000 to the overall cost of Audio’s expensive system.
The world’s most expensive stereo system isn’t for audiophiles alone, though. It also includes Pioneer’s BDP-LX 70 blu ray player and Toshiba’s HD-EXI for HD-DVD’s. SIM2’s HAT-500 projector ($68,000) provides video output, making this system as desirable for home cinema buffs as it is for audiophiles.
Unfortunately, the listening room at IFA 2007 wasn’t quite up to the challenge provided by Audio’s expensive system. Background noise made the improvement in sound quality nearly imperceptible

World’s Most Expensive Beers

Beer is one of the oldest drinks known to man—and one of this writer’s favorites. While many people enjoy drinking light and less expensive beer, there are still some beer connoisseurs out there. If you don’t believe it, then check out the proof–the world’s most expensive beers.

Tutankhamun Ale

Tutankhamun Ale – $52 per bottle

This expensive beer has a peculiar history. It’s brewed in a Cambridge laboratory from a recipe discovered in the Queen Nefertiti’s Temple of the Sun in Egypt. The beer is named after the queen’s stepson, more commonly known as King Tut. The temple, which housed a brewery, is believed to have been built by King Akenhaten, Tut’s predecessor and likely father. This beer is also limited and may be purchased for $52 per bottle.

Samuel Adams Utopias – $100 per bottle

Samuel Adams

Vintage No. 1 may be four times as expensive as Samuel Adams/Boston Beer Company’s Utopias, the former most expensive beer, but Utopias still holds a Guinness World Record for being the strongest beer at 50 proof.

Utopias was brewed with a blend of high-quality hops and sold in an ornate copper-plated brew kettle and offers a flavor unlike any other expensive beer or beverage in the world. The sweet flavor is richly highlighted with hints of vanilla, oak and caramel. The expensive beer is non-carbonated and should be served at room temperature.

Production of Utopias was limited to 8,000 bottles.

Carlsberg Vintage 3 – $348 per bottle

Carlsberg Vintage 3

The Carlsberg Group, a brewing company founded in 1847 and named after founder J. C. Jacobsen’s son Carl, is best known for their light-bodied lager, Carlsberg Pilsner (also known as Carlsberg Beer or Carlsberg Hof). In 2008, however, Carlsberg introduced another beer guaranteed to be linked to the Carlsberg name in the public consciousness, Vintage 1.

Vintage 3 is the third in the trilogy of beers created from 2008 to 2010. At the time of its launch, the “pale barley wine” was the only available beer to have been aged in French Côte d’Or oak barrels in the Carlsberg founder’s original cellar. Only 1,000 bottles of this exclusive beer were hand tapped and labeled with art by Kaspar Bonnén and two artists selected from the Radiant Copenhagen project.

The price of Vintage 1, 2,008 Danish kroner, reflected the year it was introduced. The brewer introduced Vintage 2 in 2009 and Vintage 3 in 2010, priced at 2,009 and 2,010 kroner respectively.

Brewdog’s “The End of History” – $765 per bottle

World's Most Expensive Beers - Brewdog's The End of History

Well, PETA is going to have a field day with this one. Scottish brewery BrewDog has produced a beer served in bottles as shocking as the beer’s extremely high alcoholic content.

Only eleven bottles of this expensive beer, named after a book by philosopher Francis Fukuyama, were produced. The blond Belgian ale, infused with nettles from the Scottish Highlands and fresh juniper berries, is 55 percent alcohol and will be BrewDog’s final high ABV beer.

The bottles, however, are the beer’s most striking aspect–each one is encased in a squirrel or weasel stuffed by a gifted taxidermist. The four grey squirrels and seven weasels selected were all roadkill, however, so their immortalization as beer bottles may actually be considered more respectful than ignominious roadside decomposition.

Antarctic Nail Ale – $800

World's Most Expensive Beers - Antarctic Nail Ale

If your conscience rails at the thought of drinking beer clothed in roadkill, perhaps you’ll find this entry on our list of the world’s most expensive beers more to your taste. Australia’s Nail Brewing Company has been brewing craft beer for nearly a decade, and their limited edition Antarctic Nail Ale sold at auction for a record-breaking price. Best of all, that money is going straight to charity.

This expensive beer was brewed with actual Antarctic ice. Only thirty bottles were produced, and the number one bottle was sold by the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society at an auction in Fremantle, Western Australia.

Sea Shepherd opposes whaling in the Antarctic sanctuary. They are also selling bottles numbered two through ten to support their cause. The number one bottle was purchased by the Elliot Syndicate.

Most Expensive Divorce

One of the richest men in the world, Rupert Murdoch developed his worldwide media empire when he inherited his father’s Australian newspaper in 1952. He married Anna Murdoch in the ’60s and they remained together for 32 years, springing off three children.  They split amicably in 1998 but soon Rupert forced Anna off the board of News Corp and the gloves came off.

The divorce was finalized in June 1999 when Rupert agreed to let his ex-wife leave with $1.7 billion worth of his assets, $110 million of it in cash. Seventeen days later, Rupert married Wendi Deng, one of his employees.

 

Most Expensive Airline ticket

In September 2007 Australian Julian Hayward dished out $100,380.00 USD for a seat aboard Singapore Airlines’ Airbus A380 for a flight from Singapore to Sydney.

Normally the seat would sell for a measly $3,391.00 but Julian Hayward out bid all bidders on eBay with his $100,380.00 to purchase the world’s first ticket and become the world’s first commercial passenger aboard the A380.

He does get a couple extra perks for the extra $96,989.00 he dished out such as a special dinner and a trip to France to see the airline take delivery A380, he can also sleep well at night knowing his “donation” will go to a variety of charities.
