Kim Kardashian is the official owner of a special and expensive necklace that was worn by the late Princess of Wales, Diana. For the unversed, it is called the Attallah Cross and was reportedly put up for sale at Sotheby’s recently London. It was sold as part of its Royal and Noble Sale a few days ago.

Apart from Kim, three other people competed in a bidding war to gain the necklace. However, the US reality TV star won the auction in a matter of just five minutes.

The specialty

Talking about the amethyst cross, it is a 1920s pendant from the house of the luxury jewelry designer Garrard. According to various reports, Princess Diana wore it on multiple occasions. The cross-shaped pendant reportedly features very large amethyst stones framed by magnificent 5.2-carat diamonds.

Its history

As per different media reports, the cross was first bought by renowned businessman Naim Attallah in the 1980s. He was a friend of Diana and often loaned it to her over many years. His estate recently put the item up for auction.

The payment

Kim Kardashian reportedly paid £163,800 for the cross. Kristian Spofforth, Head of jewelry at Sotheby London said, “Jewellery owned or worn by the late Princess Diana very rarely comes on to the market, especially a piece such as the Attallah Cross, which is so colorful, bold and distinctive. To some extent, this unusual pendant is symbolic of the princess’s growing self-assurance in her sartorial and jewelry choices, at that particular moment in her life.”

Kim is one of the most recognizable figures in the entertainment industry, and her personal and professional life continues to be widely followed and covered by the media.

Earlier update

Kim Kardashian is currently going big on creating awareness for her brand. That is why she was quick to react when her younger sister Kylie donned a SKIMS wear without tagging the official brand! So, what exactly happened? Talking about Jenner, the 25-year-old makeup mogul recently shared a few hot photos of herself on her Instagram account. She looked stunning while donning a black sleeveless romper teamed up with a cut-out at the back. The diva paired it with high black boots.

The reported tiff with Kylie

Kylie Jenner did not forget to caption the sultry images, as she wrote, “Kyventures.” Well, she seemingly referred to the background of all the pictures, which seemed to be a green outdoor field.

There is no denying that the post’s comment section was filled with several emojis. However, leading the comments was none other than her elder sister Kim, who noticed that Kylie had worn SKIMS clothing but unfortunately, failed to tag the brand!
