We’ve previously profiled the most expensive watches currently on the market, but have you ever wondered what the most expensive cufflinks in the world are?
Well, wonder no more. Priced at $4,195,000, these super glamorous links come courtesy of celebrity jewelers Jacob & Co, famed across the globe for creating lavish and sensational designs for some of the world’s most high profile entertainers.
However the big word on the street is that the Emerald Cut Canary Diamond Octagon links can now be purchased at just the click of a button, via cufflinks.com. Virtual shopping just reached brand new heights.
It’s never been quite as easy for men to find ways to accessorize their outfits as women, so those in the market for updating their sleeves with some show-stopping sparklers are in luck, as these ultra luxe links typically ship in three to four working days. Meaning you too can be the owner of the pricey and pretty looking pair in just a matter of seconds.
Jacob & Co‘s Emerald Cut Canary Diamond Octagon cufflinks are crafted from 18-carat white gold, with a centerpiece made up of 20-carat and 21-carat canary yellow diamonds, surrounded by 10.76 carats of additional white diamond baguettes. In addition, they also feature a diamond encrusted whale flip-back closure.
Favored by pop superstars such as Rihanna, Beyoncé and Madonna, sporting sensations like David Beckham and even Hollywood A-listers including Jessica Alba and Eva Longoria, Jacob & Co has built up a reputation in the world of showbusiness for creating some of the most extravagant and ‘blinged-up’ bespoke pieces that money can buy.
Now based on New York’s upmarket 57th Street directly opposite the Four Seasons Hotel, the brand was originally founded by Jacob Arabo – aka ‘Jacob the Jeweler’ – who started designing his own jewelry pieces in New York’s diamond district aged just 17.
Proud to be in business for over a quarter of a century, his Jacob & Co brand – which found fame among hip hop’s elite during the ’90s – has continued to further its high profile clientele in recent years.
Soul singer Alicia Keys even sported a unique reworked headpiece of 60-carat diamonds from Jacob & Co on her wedding day to rapper Swizz Beatz in 2010. No doubt these super luxe cufflinks are soon to be snapped up by some of music’s most lavish spenders too.
