Reality TV star Kim Kardashian is currently the new owner of the Attallah Cross, an amethyst and diamond pendant which was Princess Diana’s. The late Princess was spotted wearing the jewelry piece on several occasions. The work was initially made by a British jeweler Garrad in the 1920s and was auctioned by Sotheby’s, the auction house. 

According to Sotheby’s, the jewelry item was sold for 163,800 pounds at a sale in London, and four bidders had competed for the pendant that Kim Kardashian ultimately bought.

“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 colourful, bold and distinctive,” Sotheby’s Kristian Spofforth said, adding, “To some extent, this unusual pendant is symbolic of the princess’s growing self-assurance in her sartorial and jewellery choices, at that particular moment in her life.”

Princess Diana had modeled the pendant at a 1987 charity gala. Incredibly, Kim Kardashian has been known as a fan of iconic and historical pieces. One recalls that she was a sensation in 1962 when she sang on John F Kennedy’s birthday in a dress originally worn by Marilyn Monroe at the Met Gala. 

A bold and colorful pendant set with square-cut amethysts and circular-cut diamonds, the Attallah Cross is reportedly 5.25 carats of diamonds.
