Since we’re all stuck at home these days and trying not to go out, it makes sense that your Amazon account is getting a bit of a workout, at least when it comes to browsing.
So, for your browsing pleasure, here’s a list of the top 10 most expensive things you can buy on Amazon.
1. $1,250,000, Dracula 1931 original movie poster
In case your taste in decor trends more toward movie posters rather than paintings, Amazon has something for you. This cult classic movie poster features the late, great Bela Lugosi, who starred in the 1931 film adaptation of Bram Stoker’s “Dracula.” Shipping is free!
**2. $350,000, Antique 21×21 Octagon Shaped Indian Agra Area Hand-Knotted Wool Carpet, Circa 1880 **
This antique burgundy, green, and ivory carpet originally from India comes with free shipping! While it would no doubt beautify any home, probably don’t plan to wipe your feet on it.
3. $315,000, Still Life with Squash, Melon, Pears, Figs, Peaches, and Grapes
For the serious art collector who doesn’t have a million to spare, this hefty oil painting, at 40 pounds, is a steal—and it looks good enough to eat! But, expect to pay almost $25 in shipping.
4. $269,500, Greubel Forsey Double Balancier Mechanical Black Dial Mens Watch
Why have art you can just look at, when you can have art to wear? This hand-winding certified pre-owned watch features an 18K red gold case surrounding the black open work dial and an 18K red gold deployant buckle on a brown alligator strap. The watch comes with its box and papers and a 15-month warranty, according to the seller. There’s only 33 of them, so they’ll sell fast!
5. $169,000, Tibetan Buddhist Necklace
This genuine Buddhist “dzi” bead necklace, or rosary, consists of several different symbols including three eyes, four eyes, the Ruyi motif, nectar bottle, five eyes with lightning, one eye with mountain, lotus, golden hook symbol, and more. In Tibet Buddhism, according to the product post, dzi beads are believed to be powerful talismans that bless and protect their owner. Maybe it protects against coronavirus. You’ll never know until you try.
6. $87,156.78, Jewelry Adviser Bracelets 14k AAA Diamond Tennis Bracelet
To be honest, we could have filled the rest of these spots with men’s watches, but where’s the fun in that? Here’s something for the ladies. But also, here’s a few questions: Why is this women’s diamond tennis bracelet cheaper than the men’s watch? Because it doesn’t tell time? Also, do people actually wear these while playing tennis? It’s a love-love for us.
7. $84,119.18, Meyda Tiffany Transitional 24 Light Chandelier
Need something to light up all that art you’ve collected? This 48-inch Meyda Tiffany Chandelier from the Marquee Collection with a bronze finish is constructed from metal and glass and weighs just 320 pounds—and shipping is free! It takes LED lights, so it’s environmentally sound.
8. $62,499.99, Michael Jordan autographed original Fleer Rookie Card art
Bet you didn’t see this one coming. According to the product post, this 1986-87 Fleer rookie card is almost universally regarded as the MOST important Michael Jordan rookie card ever produced, serving as the focal point for a paradigm shift that occurred in the sports card industry during the same time period.
The product post, written by seller Sports Memorabilia, states that Michael Jordan almost single handedly forced trading card collectors to shift their spending dollars away from baseball and into basketball cards.
Wow. I mean, when you consider the historic sports card value, Michael Jordan’s signature is really just the cherry on top.
9. $49,410 Daum Crystal Ensemble 05357
How do you pronounce “Daum?” Because it seems like it should be pronounced “day-um,” as in, “day-um, that’s some good looking crystal!” No? Well, anyway, Daum Crystal is French-made and tres chic—and can be delivered to your door in a month’s time. Shipping is free, of course. (Anyone else getting Han Solo frozen in carbonite vibes? Just us? OK then.)
10. $7,999, Stern Pinball The Beatles Gold Edition
The Beatles. Pinball. Need I say more? This pinball machine is the only one ever made by 1964 Games Available (maybe that means something to you pinball-machine-literate?). The best part is this machine will serenade you to several classic Beatles songs: A Hard Day’s Night, Can’t Buy Me Love, Ticket to Ride, All My Loving, Help Drive My Car, It Won’t Be Long, I Should Have Known Better, and Taxman. Beatlemania is real.
