Top 5 Most Expensive Luxury Items In The World Featured

Good things in life don't come cheap. Here, a list of some 'most expensive' things available in the market. Amazing world record!

1)      Most expensive cocktail: $28,346.70 a pop

How would you like to be served a cocktail that is worth $28,346.70 or 15,250 British pounds? This cocktail was created by Harvey Nichols in Manchester, England, using a ½k pink tourmaline and diamond ring set in 18k white gold instead of an olive.

The senior bartender, Jay Malik, at a popular restaurant in Manchester, England was asked to think of an exotic drink to match their Pink Dinners month. This was his impressive idea and it came to be with the designer Harvey Nichols. A safe has been installed in the bar area to hold these rings and any customer that wishes to order one of these unique cocktails can choose from an array of rings with the most expensive one being around $50,187.60 or 27,000 British pounds which is for a 2k diamond engagement ring.
