    I Went Down A Rabbit Hole And Discovered How Much Rich People Things Actually Cost

    *Gasps in broke*

    We all know rich people love to splurge because, well, if you've got money why the hell not? But have you ever wondered just how much they drop on those signature rich people items you see everywhere? Look no further than this list...

    Cartier Love Bracelet

    You may have heard of Cartier's iconic Love bracelet – it's a favourite of the Kardashian family and Meghan Markle, and is notoriously difficult to remove from your wrist. But why would you want to remove it when it costs over £50,000? There are less expensive ones (this one features white gold and 216 diamonds) but they all cost a pretty penny. 

    Price: £52,500.00

    Christian Louboutin Kate 100 Patent

    One of the first things that comes to mind when we think of luxury is a pair of classic Christian Louboutin pumps. To be honest, I thought these were going to be way more pricey than they actually are. They'll still set you back around £500 but compared to other styles they're not that out of reach.

    Price: £565.00

    Dom Pérignon Rosé Vintage Coffret Gold 2000

    Dom Pérignon is known to be pretty fancy, but their fanciest champagne is this rose gold edition. I don’t know what special occasion warrants opening a £43,000 bottle but it’s surely got to be a pretty big one. Unless you’re Beyoncé, who probably could afford to pop this open to celebrate a good hair day. 

    Price: £43,530.00

    Dyson 360 Heurist Robot Vacuum Cleaner

    John Lewis

    Dyson’s robot vacuum isn’t your average robot vacuum cleaner. It has an intelligent vision system that helps it to navigate and build a map of your home, so it always knows where it is in the room. It also connects to the Dyson Link app, so you can control it from anywhere. It's basically the Rolex of vacuums, so it's no surprise that it costs almost £900.

    Price: £899.00

    Hermès Pre-Owned Himalaya Birkin 30 Bag

    Designed in 1983 with actress Jane Birkin in mind, the Birkin bag is now considered the Holy Grail of handbags. You've probably spotted them on every A-list celebrity from Kim Kardashian to Cardi B, because you obviously haven't made it unless you have one of these on your arm. This Himalaya Birkin 30 version is made with matte crocodile leather in beige and off-white tones, and comes in at a whopping £256k! 

    Price: £256,768.00

    Every rich person eventually ends up splurging on an obscenely expensive set of wheels. One of Kylie Jenner's many such cars is a Mercedes Benz G-Class. Ever wondered how much one of these costs? Well, they're listed for a casual £100k on the Mercedes Benz website. 

    Price: £108,815.00

    Rolex Cosmograph Daytona Watch

    Selfridges / Via selfridges.com

    Rolex is basically synonymous with luxury, and having one of their watches on your wrist usually signifies you're someone. Prices range, but this one is made with yellow gold and meteorite. Yep, you read that right. This watch features the unique metallic patterns of actual meteorites. Now that's definitely Big Rich Person Energy.

    Price: £32,900.00

    Crème de la Mer Moisturising Cream

    When I saw the cost of this moisturiser, I couldn’t help but wonder if there was gold or diamonds in the formula. There isn’t, but La Mer’s 500ml ultra-rich cream promises immediate results, and is beloved by celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Chrissy Teigen. I mean, if it's good enough for Kim Kardashian, who am I to judge the price?

    Price: £1,700.00

    Van Cleef & Arpels Vintage Alhambra Necklace

    Love Island star Molly-Mae Hague made waves when she recently rocked this necklace by Van Cleef & Arpels. The reason? People realised it costs a shocking £15,000. The vintage piece is made with yellow gold and blue agate and is quite stunning, TBH.

    Price: £15,100.00

    Balenciaga Triple S Clear Sole Sneakers

    Harrods / Via harrods.com

    You've most likely spotted these Balenciaga trainers on pretty much every influencer on your feed. They're so popular that I admittedly thought they'd be less expensive than they really are. But somehow people are spending over £800 a pair to cop these trendy trainers.

    Price: £825.00

    Tiffany & Co Diamond Stud Earrings

    Diamond earrings are a classic, iconic symbol of wealth and glamour. If you're wondering if you can afford to splurge on a pair, it may not be as easy as you think. These (pretty small, IMO) diamond studs by Tiffany & Co cost a solid grand.

    Price: £1,075

    Chanel Handbag

    Every rich person has a sort of unspoken obligation to buy a Chanel bag, no? Cardi B rocked this one on Instagram, and it got me wondering just how much she dropped on it. Her exact one isn't available online as far as I could tell, but similar version go for about £4k! Not much for Cardi, but rather a lot for the rest of us, TBH.

    Price: £4,020
