Charles Hollander has produced some of the most luxurious items for collectors. One of their top items is the 'Royal Diamond Chess Set', which is hand made with 9,900 black and white diamonds, in over 1168 grams of 14 carat white gold. It took 30 artisans over 4500 hours to make this exquisite masterpiece. If you have to ask how much, it is probably too expensive for you (you won't find the prices on the web site). However, we will let you in on the cost: $500,000.
If the cost is out of your price range, then as an alternative, you can consider their latest product, the 'Gold Chess Set' with the king and queen set with diamonds. You can pick this up for a price of only $100,000.
Guernsey's Auction House will be having an interesting auction, a nude photo negative of Marilyn Monroe, the original Yankee Stadium last home run ball, and most exciting, the tip of the nose of the Statue of Liberty, actually a backup replacement piece, one of only three in existence (one is already on Lady Liberty's nose), created back in the 1980's.
To give you an idea of how big the Statue of Liberty is, the copper nose tip piece measures two feet long. The auction will be held on September 24.
