Princess Diana’s ‘Swan Lake’ Necklace - $12 Million

Princess Diana‘s diamond and pearl necklace is up for sale — for a whopping $12.1 million. Diana famously wore the necklace, nicknamed the “Swan Lake set,” to a performance of Swan Lake at London’s Royal Albert Hall in 1997, just two months before her death.

A Ukrainian couple bought the jewels in 2010 for $632,000. This year is the 20th anniversary of Diana‘s death.
In December Kate Middleton wore a heirloom that has been passed down the royal generations - from Queen Mary, to Queen Elizabeth II, to Princess Diana and to the future Queen, the Duchess of Cambridge.

The diamond and pearl 'Cambridge Lover's Knot' tiara was made by Royal jewellers Garrard in 1914 to Queen Mary's personal design.
