by queenofcolordiamonds

Do you wish to own something rare and magnificent? More specifically, a blue diamond ring, which costs upwards of $16 million? Yes you read it right, the blue diamond ring made by Chopard, costs $16.26 million!!! This masterpiece is the most expensive ring in the world followed by The Bulgari Blue at $15 million.

THE CHOPARD BLUE:  $16 MILLION

The exquisite and flawless blue diamond ring features a huge oval shaped blue diamond, which rests on a triangular-shaped shoulder of diamonds, set in a diamond paved 18k white gold band.

The centrally placed blue diamond is a 9 carat piece of beautiful blue colored rock that can make any girl go crazy. Blue diamonds are the rarest type of diamonds found in the world, acquiring their blue color from the boron deposits from where they are found. This feature makes the diamonds so rare and precious.

The company who made this magnificent ring is Chopard, a Swiss luxury watch and jewelry company. It was founded in 1860 by Louis-Ulysse Chopard, at the young age of 24 years. Chopard is known for its collection of some of the most beautiful pieces of jewelry and watches. The company is also associated with the Cannes Film Festival and each year dresses celebrities in their jewelry pieces, for the red carpet events. The Chopard Blue Diamond Ring is fittingly created by this legendary company.

THE BULGARI BLUE:  $15 MILLION

Coming in at $15 Million is the Bulgari Blue which was sold to an art collector  in the 1970s. In late 2010, the Bulgari Blue went up for auction at Christie’s. This expensive diamond ring made news for two reasons. First, the two-stone diamond ring featured the largest fancy vivid blue diamond to ever go up on auction. Second, by fetching $15.7 million (pre-auction estimates put the sale price at $12 million), this became the most expensive jewel to sell at a 2010 auction. This beautiful ring is one of the most expensive diamond rings in the world. The stunning triangular 10.95-carat blue diamond is matched by a 9.85-carat colorless diamond.
