10>Guinea pig armor

Talking about insanely expensive accessories for pets, an elaborately fashioned guinea pig suit of armor became the hit of e-Bay auctioning in 2013. The final bid was a stunning $24,300.

9>Extinct Huia Bird feather

In 2010, an anonymous family from Wellington, New Zealand bought a single extinct Huia Bird feather for $8,400 at the Webb’s Auction House in Auckland, making the item the most expensive feather ever.

8>Golf cart hovercraft

Available at hammacher.com for $58,000, the golf cart hovercraft is an ultimate vehicle capable of gliding over sand traps and water hazards on a cushion of air as easily as it does over fairways and the rough.

7>Martian rock

In 2003, a piece of rock that fell on Earth from Mars was sold for $450,000 in an online auction. There are over 60,000 meteorite specimens known to scientists but only 132 of them come from Mars, which is why getting Martian rocks is not a cheap purchase.

6>Diamond dog collar

Wealthy dog owners can get their pets these diamond collars created by I Love Dogs Diamonds. At a price of $3.2 million, the most expensive model features 3 tiers of diamonds in the chandelier design and 1,600 diamonds on the collar.

5>Million dollar fishing lure

Fishermen can be rich too and this is probably why this outrageously expensive fishing lure was produced. Made of three pounds of gold and platinum, and encrusted with 100 carats of diamonds and rubies, this fishing lure costs 1 million dollars.

4>Diamond hoodie

Produced by Konquest, this diamond-studded hoodie costs $10,000. Who said casual clothes can’t be luxurious?

3>Albert Einstein´s letter

In October 2012, an original hand-written letter by Albert Einstein was sold in an auction for more than 3 million dollars. The letter was written to philosopher Erik Gutkind and it contained Einstein´s views on ethics and religion.

2>Gold Monopoly

Millionaires who like playing Monopoly should consider getting the special gold version of this popular board game. The 18-karat gold and jewel-encrusted Monopoly crafted by San Francisco jeweler Sidney Mobell in 1988 was estimated to worth $2 million.

1>Ian Usher´s life

Ian Usher´s life was put in an auction in 2008. After a heartbreaking divorce, the Australian was sick of his life so he decided to start over and sell his old life including all his possession, house and even his job in an auction. After an unknown bidder bought his life for more than $300,000, Usher used the money to purchase a deserted island in the Caribbean where he has been living a happy life since then.
