Snoopy has been a much loved comic character for a long time now, maybe as long as you can remember. And this year Snoopy reaches his 60th birthday milestone, a big date for our beloved rambunctious dog. To celebrate the anniversary, the Hong Kong fine jewelry brand TSL has created a 5.5″ diamond statue of the iconic cartoon character that just might get into Guinness as the world’s most expensive.
“Diamond Snoopy” , dubbed “The Ever Shining Star” by TSL’s jewelry designers, features 207 carats of gems, with a total of 9,917 diamonds, 783 black diamonds, and 415 rubies that have all undergone a meticulous selection process (to ensure matching color, clarity, cut, and size) as well as a strict stone setting procedure to ensure optimal symmetry and shine. Diamond Snoopy has been touring around China and has an estimated value of HK 2.8 million (or about $372,000).
