Diamond Adorned Barbie Fetches $302,000 at Auction


Billed as the world’s most expensive Barbie, the doll, designed by Stefano Canturi was sold at auction for $302,000.


The Australian jewelry designer spent four weeks working on the doll. It is adorned with a diamond collar necklace made of three carats of white diamonds centered by a 1-ct. emerald cut fancy vivid pink diamond.

All proceeds from the October 20 auction at Christie's New York went toward the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, in recognition of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

  2. Hi Elyse,

    I'm afraid I don't know. It's was someone who didn't want to be identified.
