World’s Most Expensive Written Manuscript

Most Expensive Chair

World's Most Expensive Dog

Have you wondered what is the World's Most Expensive Dog? A $600,000 dog that is. Meet the Tibetan Mastiff. This breed can measure up to three feet tall and weigh up to 180 pounds. And in China, these large dogs are all the rage. One couple said they forked over $600,000 for their mastiff, named Yangtze River Number Two, and transported him to their home via a fleet of Mercedes sedans. Their dog was worth the price, they said, because of his pure bloodline, which is extremely rare. After all the money spent, these dogs may not have the qualities to be a perfect pet. Though loyal to their owners, they can be vicious to strangers — and all that hair must shed like crazy. Plus, they're used to breathing at high altitudes, which is a problem for those living at sea-level locations in China. 

World’s Most Expensive Watches

Swiss watchmaker Vacheron Constantin marked its 250th anniversary in 2005 with the world’s most complicated wrist watch—the Tour de l’Ile. The watch is so complicated that it required over 10,000 hours of research to create. Its name refers to one of the historical sites of the venerable company, located next to the current Maison Vacheron Constantin on the Quai de l’Ile. Only produced in a limited edition of seven pieces, this expensive watch is also the most complicated double-face watch. Tour de l’Ile is made with a totally original combination of horological complications (that is, features beyond the simple telling of the time of day) and astronomical indications composing a list of sixteen different points including a minute repeater, sunset time, perpetual calendar, second time zone, a tourbillion device, the equation of time and a representation of the night sky.

My Name Necklace

"My name is more important than myself." said Pierre Cardin.

Our names are the signifiers of our identity and our "personal brand". That`s why ones name is excellent jewellery and celebrities love name necklaces.


I wanted a name necklace ever since I saw it on Carrie in Sex and the City and now I finally got mine.


I got the Carrie style necklace in sterling silver from and I`m super happy with it. They are fast, service is very friendly, free shipping worldwide and you can pay through PayPal or credit card. Great site - highly recommended.

I think a name necklace makes a great, personal christmas gift as well.
