FOR SALE: One latticed yellow-gold and diamond tiara from jewelry designer Slim Barrett
ASKING PRICE: $40,227 OBO — Serious offers only!
MUSEUM-QUALITY! (Literally. It’s been displayed at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum and Antwerp’s Diamond Museum.)
Cherished family heirloom! We hate to part with this but we’re moving to a different mansion and just don’t have space for it. Worn once for a pretty spectacular wedding (seriously, there were thrones. Interested buyers, we may be able to throw the thrones in at a good price). According to appraisers at Bonhams, it’s “crafted from 18-carat latticed yellow gold, set with large brilliant-cut diamonds and suspended diamond drops” — but all we know is that it looks adorable on our two-year-old when she gets into Mommy’s closet!
If you’re looking to buy your first tiara — or just to expand your large tiara collection — and you want a unique piece at a great price, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or just follow large groups of paparazzi in London to our new place. All serious offers considered!
(If you’re actually looking to buy Victoria Beckham‘s gold-and-diamond Slim Barrett wedding tiara, entitled “East of Paris,” you can bid on it December 5 at London’s Bonhams auction house. It’s estimated to sell for between $28,963 and $40,227.)
So — will you be bidding?
