49 Expensive Luxury Items

From $2 Million Cognac to Billion Dollar Hotels

— November 16, 2013 — Luxury
The outrageous prices of some of these ridiculously expensive items will have you shaking your head if you've ever had to work a day in your life. Some of these crazy items include everyday objects like pencils and sneakers to some of the more bizarre things you couldn't possibly even imagine someone would want to buy, like a diamond-encrusted spandex bodysuit.

These exorbitant items are each an experience in themselves, giving anybody who can shell out the cash for it something unique to talk about — if you spent nearly $35,000 dollars on a golden dessert, you're probably one of an elite few in the world and you want the world to know it. As unbelievable as some of these ridiculously expensive items are, they also make it easy to spend all of your money in one place too.
