Ironically, Kim Kardashian can now bask in Princess Diana’s glamour. At Sotheby’s, the businessman was presented with a legendary jewel, Lady Dis. Why the ex-rapper’s wife paid $200,000 for Attallah’s towering cross.

LONDON – Princess Diana (36, † 1997) made a statement at the Birthright Charity Ball on October 27, 1987. Daring outfits were no stranger to her anyway, but on this day Prince William’s mother Diana (40 ) Y prince harry (38), go one better. She wore a purple Catherine Walker gown, reminiscent of Elizabethan times, and a towering crucifix of hard-to-beat extravagance. Diana had attached the oversized accessory to her own pearl necklace, the pompous cross dangling below the solar plexus. Social media queen Kim Kardashian (40) is now the proud new owner and, according to tmz.com, she did not splurge the equivalent of €184,788 at the Royal and Noble auction.

“Few people can wear this piece, but Diana really could”

Ramsay Attallah received the crucifix from the statement of his late father Naim Attallah (89, † 2021), a good friend of Diana’s. He lent the special piece to the Princess of Wales to wear on various occasions. Ramsay has his own memories of it: “When we were kids, we always had it on the table for Christmas dinner, but no one but Diana wore it and it hasn’t been seen in public since her death,” he says.

“Believed to be a unique private commission by Garrard for one of his regular clients, the cruciform pendant is a bold and colorful piece, set with square-cut amethysts and accented with round-cut diamonds,” the statement read. Sotheby’s press release. The cross has a total diamond weight of approximately 5.25 carats and measures approximately 136 x 95mm. Garrard also created Diana’s famous sapphire engagement ring, now passed down as a gift from Prince William to 41-year-old Princess Kate.

When it is necessary to attract attention exclusively, Kim Kardashian is there

But how does family reality TV and social media star Kim Kardashian come into play? The mother of four, who divorced rapper Kanye West (45) two months ago, apparently has a soft spot for historical fashion. At the 2022 Met Gala, she wore Marilyn Monroe’s (36, † 1962) “Happy Birthday, Mr. President” dress. For her, the royal fleurée style jewelery is probably a unique luxury accessory that no one can imitate.

Anything to do with Princess Diana often commands incredible prices at auction. In particular, clothing and jewelry from the estate of King Charles’s first wife (74) fetch the best prices. But also Diana’s bike or her Ford Escort RS, which were auctioned 25 years later, fetch real prices. Fonts used: vogue.co.uk, pagesix.com
