Christie’s to Auction the World’s Most Expensive Barbie Doll
The world’s most expensive Barbie doll, an estimate of about half a million dollars will be auctioned. A blonde in a black cocktail dress adorned with the most original diamonds from designer Stefano Canturi, whose work is worn by many Hollywood and show business stars – for example, Nicole Kidman and Linda Evangelista.
One “toy” necklace with a pink diamond is worth at least $300,000. That is the price set by collectors for each carat of colored faceted diamonds.
The auction will be held on October 20 in New York and proceeds from it will go directly to Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
Canturi received an order to produce the most expensive Barbie in the world during last year’s celebrations that marked the 50th anniversary of the most famous doll in the world.
The first Barbie was sold for just three dollars. However, already in 2004, the beauty blonde born in 1959 was sold on eBay for $3,552. Two years later, the price jumped to $17000 at Christie’s auction in England. Until now, it was a record price for Barbie doll.
