The Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament is not only a defining emblem of Rolls-Royce but also one of the most expensive car decorations that money can buy. How much does the standard ornament cost? About $3,600. But that’s chump change compared to the newest addition to the Rolls-Royce adornment family: a $200,000 hand-made diamond encrusted ornament designed by Jean Kemanjian.
The mascot, which is literally 4 inches long and 2 inches wide, is made of platinum and covered in 150 carats of glistening yellow and D-diamonds—enough to attract the attention of a blind man in space. The mascot was commissioned by local dealership, Manhattan Motorcars, but unfortunately is not for sale.
