Unveiled at the Thailand Millionaire Expo, an event held in honor of that country’s King Bhumipol, the world’s most expensive saxophone is a hard one to miss. It was created by Diamonds in Glass, an aptly-named workshop that specializes in combining diamonds and glass.
This silica sax is made of glass plated with 2.82 ounces of gold and adorned with ten 2-carat diamonds. The magnificent instrument was handmade, taking a total of sixty-five hours to create.
It was presented at the November 2007 event as a piece to be auctioned to benefit the Princess Pa Foundation. The most expensive saxophone in the world was estimated to be worth over $60,000.
