The Pendant Won By Kim Kardashian
The cross was once a part of the collection of the late Palestinian-British businessman and author Naim Attallah, CBE. The pendant, which was created by jewelry maker Garrard in 1920, has a long history. According to Sotheby’s, it was auctioned off together with other treasures from Attallah’s Mayfair, London property. In 1987, Garrard loaned the pendant to Princess Diana. She wore it to a Garrad charity event where she was wearing a purple & black velvet outfit.
Other Jewellery Kim Kardashian Bought
She bought three Elizabeth Taylor-previously-owned jade and diamond bracelets in 2011. The jewelry collection of the late star was auctioned off by Christie’s. Kardashian spent $64,900 for the Lorraine Schwartz-designed bracelets, which were expected to fetch $8,000 each. At the auction, the complete collection brought about $137 million.
Attallah served as group chief executive of Asprey & Garrard, afterward known as Garrard & Co until he died in 2021. Up until 2007, the business kept the Royal Family’s priceless jewels as its Crown Jewellers. Ramsay Attallah, Attallah’s son, claimed Diana wore the amethyst jewelry frequently. When Diana passed away in 1997, Attallah, who was close friends with Diana, received the cross. Since then, it hasn’t been worn.
