We’ve all heard the term, “idle rich”. Because most of us don’t fall into this category, we probably don’t know exactly what that term really means but we know that most people who do fit this term are going to be spending their money on things the rest of us can only dream about. When we really start shaking our heads and wondering what’s going on is when these rich folks buy things that are not only really expensive but pretty useless. Check out our list of 10 of the most expensive but completely useless things that have been purchased in the world and let us know what you think.
$14,000 Lego Block
This particular Lego block is the same size and shape as a regular Lego block but it is made with 25.65 grams of 14 carat gold. That means the block is worth about $14,500. This isn’t just a toy.
Diamond Encrusted Cricket Ball
It seems that these days people are willing to make a diamond-encrusted anything. This cricket ball carries a value of more than $65,000. The problem is there are very few people who are going to want to play cricket with something like this for fear of the old policy of “you break it, you bought it.”
Not only is the pen mightier than the sword, this pen is quite a bit more expensive than any sword. Encrusted with diamonds and rubies, this particular writing implement has a price tag of $595,000.
Magnetic Floating Bed
A good night’s sleep is worth a million bucks. Is it worth $1.6 million? This particular bed uses magnets to actually float you 1.3 feet off the ground. While that’s a heck of a price tag, it appears the bed is worth the cash, if you have it to burn, considering the magnets are powerful enough to hold about 2,000 pounds.
Million Dollar Toilet Paper
We’ve all heard the phrase “flushing money down the toilet.” If you happen to use this roll then you almost literally are doing just that. This toilet paper is actually made of rolled gold flakes and costs more than $1.38 million.
$3 Million Dog Collar
People love their pets. Some people really, really love their pets and those people are the ones who might buy the Amour Amour Dog Collar made by I Love Dogs Diamonds. This particular collar has a ton of diamonds and carries a price tag of more than $3 million.
The $600,000 Chess Set
While Chess is considered one of those sports that is played by the upper class, even those people might not be willing to spending more than half a million dollars on a set. This particular set is encrusted with black and white diamonds and has a price tag of more than $600,000. Only seven sets like this were ever made.
The Diamond Television
Anyone who likes expensive, high tech gadgets should check out this television by Yalos. You’re not likely to find a TV that is more expensive than this set, considering it’s housing is white gold and has a number of diamonds sets in it. All told, this TV is worth more than $130,000.
Diamond Contact Lenses
Who hasn’t wanted a little bling for their eyes? These diamond encrusted contact lenses are valued at more than $15,000 but there is one definitive downside. Anyone who actually puts these on their eyes runs the risk of scratching their cornea pretty bad.
The $14,000 Tea Bag
Most people can buy a box of tea bags at the supermarket for under $4.00. That means you could buy roughly 4,000 boxes of tea bags at your local store for about the same price as this diamond encrusted PG Tips bag.
Those who have always wanted to have really expensive tea can take solace in the fact that there are real tea leaves in this bag, though it would seem someone would be remiss if they brewed it.
