15 Swarovski-Encrusted Fridge
Everybody needs a fridge, don’t they? However, if you are Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, you don’t want just any fridge— you need the one worth roughly $1 million! In 2013, at the time when Kim and Kanye were renovating their Bel-Air mansion, they spent millions of dollars on furnishing it in style with only the most luxurious things one could possibly buy, including the Swarovski-encrusted fridge and 1$ million worth of Electrolux appliances. Let’s hope Kim is quite a cook because it would be a shame if such a perfect kitchen was just sitting there not being used. On the more positive side, Kim often hires private chefs to prepare food for her family, especially her children, so whoever that chef might be, they probably really enjoy working in a kitchen like this.
14 Elizabeth Taylor’s Bracelets
It’s a well-known fact that Elizabeth Taylor was one of Kim Kardashian’s biggest idols and Kim even got a chance to catch up with her idol in an interview shortly before Taylor passed away. Another well-known fact is that Kim really lover her bling so when there was a chance to combine those two loves and purchase a set of bracelets that originally belonged to Elizabeth Taylor, Kim spared no expense to make that dream come true. In fact, she spent $65,000 on three diamond and jade bracelets owned by this legendary actress.
During her life, Elizabeth Taylor had the world’s most iconic jewelry collection, including the world’s most expensive engagement ring, which she got from Richard Burton. There is no wonder Kim wanted to own at least a couple pieces from this amazing jewelry collection.
13 Private Caribbean Island
What could be the best present for your daughter’s 2nd birthday? A doll? A dollhouse? Well, not if the daughter in question is North West! Kim Kardashian and Kanye West spent $12 million on their daughter’s birthday present and they bought her a private island in the Caribbean, just off Grenada. The plan was to build a house on the island that will belong to North from the moment she turns 18. How much better than that can a birthday gift even get? Nori is definitely growing up in a lap of luxury and there is no amount of money her parents aren’t willing to spend to keep their daughter happy; from the most expensive toys in the most lavish nursery to her own personal island... It must be great to be Nori.
12 Hidden Hills Mansion
Since the Kardashian-West family has recently grown bigger, they have decided to upgrade on their home while they were waiting for their new baby to be born. In November 2017, Kim and Kanye sold their Bel-Air mansion and moved to their new, Hidden Hills home. They bought this dream house back in 2014, but the renovations took a lot of time and even more money. However, they finally moved in and currently live in their multi-million dollar, 16,000 square-foot mansion with 8 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms. The renovations alone cost them over $20 million and the house now has a huge pool, an amazingly equipped gym, a big playroom for the kids, a private massage room, and a full spa, etc.
11 Rolls Royce Phantom
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s garage is full of impressive and really expensive vehicles. One of them is a 2015 black Rolls Royce Phantom, worth nearly $500,000. The price for the base model of this amazing car is $407,000 but Kim wasn’t completely satisfied with the base version and had it customized to her own liking. It was initially white, but she had it upgraded to the black version, she equipped it with a 26-speaker sound system, rear seat entertainment system, coach-style doors, a mini refrigerator, and who knows what else… There is no doubt this vehicle is a divine luxury on the road and it definitely turns heads of the drivers passing by. There is no car enthusiast in the world that wouldn’t appreciate a car as luxurious as this one.
10 2012 Lamborghini Aventador
Have you ever wondered what kind of gifts Kim and Kanye usually give to each other? Well, they are pretty different than the gifts other people usually exchange. A simple box of chocolates doesn’t really cut it for this rich and famous couple and their presents are way more expensive and luxurious than that. For example, for his 35th birthday, Kim bought her beloved husband a 2012 Lamborghini Aventador. She had it delivered to Platinum Motorsports for some customization, and once the car was ready to meet its new owner, it was worth around $750,000. That’s a number you definitely don’t hear every day when talking about birthday presents! Kanye is one lucky man, that’s for sure, and he must have been really thrilled when he saw this baby in his garage for the first time!
9 Private Jet
Owning a private jet isn’t such an unusual thing among the rich and the famous so it’s really not surprising that Kim and Kanye decided to buy themselves one of those babies at some point. Kim’s Instagram followers even had a chance to enjoy a tour on the jet posted by Kim during one of her flights. There is no doubt that the Kardashian-West family knows how to travel in style and, since they travel pretty often, it is only logical they wanted to have the most comfortable method of transportation at their disposal whenever they needed it. Numerous celebrity jet owners have gotten themselves their pilot license at some point so, who knows, maybe Kanye will decide to follow that trend as well and we’ll have a chance to see him sitting in the pilot’s cabin in the future as well.

5 $2.8 Million Wedding
Kimye’s big day will be remembered for a long time as one of the most over-the-top weddings in the recent history. First, the Kardashians flew 200 of their closest friends and family to Paris for a big pre-wedding party. The next morning, Kimye and their friends took a fleet of private jets to Florence, where the wedding ceremony was held at the Forte di Belvedere. Kim walked down the aisle in a custom-made Givenchy gown, and then she slipped into another, equally impressive dress for the wedding reception. Also, they didn’t hire just any wedding band, no, their wedding reception was more like the Grammys with Big Sean, Andrea Bocelli, John Legend, and Lana Del Rey performing there. The wedding cost the couple $2.8 million, not including the pre-wedding party in Paris.
4 Kim’s Engagement Ring
When Kanye West proposed to Kim Kardashian, he didn’t give her just any engagement ring— he gave her the one worth $4 million! It was a 15-carat, flawless cushion-cut diamond from Lorraine Schwartz, and Kanye had the word “Adidas” engraved on it. Why Adidas? That is actually quite a cute story that Kim shared with her fans just before the ring in question got stolen from her in Paris, along with $11 million worth of other jewels. But back to the Adidas story... Kanye bought this ring for Kim right after he signed a huge Adidas deal, he came to their bedroom while she was sleeping, woke her up and told her he had brought her something from Adidas. She wanted to wait until the morning and that’s when she noticed a little Loraine Schwartz box on her pillow.
3 The Most Expensive Ice Tongs Ever
This item is definitely the weirdest one on the list. It is definitely not one of the most expensive things Kim and Kanye have ever purchased, but still deserves a place on this list because it is pretty unusual. Everybody probably owns a pair of ice tongs, don’t they? You know, that metal thing you use to pick up ice cubes that costs usually roughly around two bucks. Well, Kimye’s ice tongs cost them over 200 times that. They bought the Vertigo Silver-Plated Ice Tongs worth $260 that they use to serve their favorite drinks ice-cold. Sure, a couple of hundreds of dollars doesn’t really mean that much to Kimye, but imagine every little thing in your house, no matter how insignificant it was, costing this much and you are talking millions and millions of dollars.
2 $923,000 Worth Of Beds
With her being so popular on social media, it is only logical that Kim Kardashian needs top-quality beauty sleep. So when the time came for her to buy new beds for her house, she didn’t just buy the first ones she liked, she went for the most expensive option out there was and spent nearly $1 million on the beds for her and her husband Kanye West. The couple sleeps in Savoir Royal State Beds, worth $175,000 a piece. Only 60 of them have ever been created in honor of Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee so it is a true privilege to own one of them and to sleep in, night after the night. A bed like this takes hundreds of hours to get built and it is made of carved virgin lambs’ wool, a unique combination of cashmere, and Mongolian horsehair.
1 Gold-Plated Toilets
Gold-plated plumbing seems to be quite popular among celebrities these days, with the most expensive gold toilet in the world being worth a whopping $5 million. Kim and Kanye decided to go for a cheaper option than that and spent (only) $750,000 of 4 gold-plated toilets in their mansion. Well, if you want your bathroom to be a place of luxury, this is definitely one way to go. Kim and Kanye usually spare no expense when it comes to furnishing and/or renovating their homes so purchases such as this one aren’t all that unusual at all. And while some people might things that spending money like this is basically just flushing it down the toilet, Kim and Kanye definitely seem to be flushing it in style. If you can afford it, why not?
