Girlfriend Toy: Most Expensive Hello Kitty Item

Every little girl has an obsession with Hello Kitty. And as girls become women, they still gravitate towards Hello Kitty merchandise. More than 35 years ago, Yuko Shimizu designed the timeless and iconic Hello Kitty character. Over the years, the image has appeared on all kinds of things form an Airbus Jet to wood pencils. But in 2009, Saniro, the company that produces Hello Kitty, decided to take the brand to a whole new level. As part of Hello Kitty’s 35th anniversary, Saniro commissioned Swarovski and Japanese jewelers I.K. to create a Super Hello Kitty Jewel Doll. The piece is 4 inches tall, made of solid platinum, and covered with 1,939 pieces of white topaz, 403 pink sapphires, and the signature bow is made of a 1.027 carat diamond. The Super Hello Kitty Jewel Doll was unveiled at the Baselworld jewelry show in Switzerland and is valued today at a cost of roughly $167,000 USD.
