Behind the successful bidder for the so-called “Attallah Cross” with a bid of 163,000 pounds (around 186,000 euros) was a representative of the 42-year-old US celebrity, as the auction house confirmed, according to the British news agency PA. According to the report, in the last few minutes of the online auction ending on Wednesday, he fought a bidding war with three other potential buyers.

King Charles III’s ex-wife, who died in a car accident in Paris in 1997. had worn the pendant set with amethysts and diamonds in public on various occasions. The piece of jewellery, made around 1920 by the London jeweler Garrard, belonged at the time to her friend and entrepreneur Naim Attallah.

The estimated price of the “Attallah Cross” was given before the auction at 80,000 to 120,000 pounds (about 91,000 to 137,000 euros). Kim Kardashian has previously shown an interest in accessories worn by famous women: at a gala in New York in 2022, she walked the red carpet in a dress borrowed from US actress Marilyn Monroe, who died in 1962. Critics at the time claimed the dress was damaged during the performance.
