When you’re living in the lap of luxury you can afford to be eccentric. You can buy anything your heart desires and no one can say a word even if it’s the most ridiculous thing with an even more ridiculous price tag.
Think exotic cars, beautiful luxury mansions and the finest jewelry, but it doesn’t end there. Submarine or private aircraft? Anyone? When it comes to some of these jaw-droppingly expensive purchases in the world, sometimes the ordinary becomes the extraordinary.
If you’ve got $4.8 billion just lying around burning a hole in your pocket then feel free to purchase the History Supreme, a luxury super yacht with the handiwork of Liverpool-based jeweler Stuart Hughes. Or if you’re anything like Floyd Mayweather, you might be on the lookout to buy one of the most expensive cars in the world.
We can’t help but ask ourselves if people are really buying this stuff and the answer is yes and so much more. Stay tuned as we uncover the 15 of the Most Shockingly Expensive Buys in the World.

You may be just as surprised as us to hear that its price cannot be determined but seeing it’s one of the most infamous pieces of jewelry in world history it starts to make sense. Some say the diamond possesses pure beauty while others believe it to be cursed.
