SHARJAH: Sahara Centre Sharjah is displaying the Najmat Taiba (Star of Taiba), a 21-carat jewel valued at $3m.
Customers at the mall can enjoy an exclusive opportunity to view the $3 million masterpiece as it becomes Sharjah’s star attraction this month.
The 21-carat Najmat Taiba, which has been recognised by the Guinness Book of World Records and endorsed by the World Gold Council, weighs almost 64 kilograms and is studded with 5.1 kilograms of precious stones and diamonds, as well as 615 Swarovski crystals.
The Najmat Taiba cost its owner only $547,000 to make back in 2000, when gold was priced at about $250 an ounce. Gold prices have since soared and are now trading high at about $1,497.50 on today’s market, giving the ring an immense value estimated at $3 million, it added.
