Tomb Raider has been one of the biggest games with its famous archaeologist, Lara Croft. Croft’s expeditions have led her on many adventures seeking lost artifacts and searching for lost cities. This treasure hunter lives up to her name of Tomb Raider. Something else about Lara Croft is she’s always wearing a jade necklace discovered on her first archaeological dig with her father. How much would this artifact be worth in the real world? Well, the jewelry brand Taylor & Hart put in the effort to find the value of the necklace along with some others you may recognize.
Kate Earlam-Charnley, Design Director at Taylor & Hart, estimates the gem to be worth approximately $2,045 and says:
Lara Croft is everybody’s favourite adventurer and her game franchise is one of the biggest of this millennium. The beautiful jade pendant she wears not only has huge importance to her and the relationship to her father, but a decent price tag for a gem that size.
The expensive fictional jewelry
The Heart of the Ocean has quite the price tag of $340,568,620. The jewel was 45.52ct and was based on the Hope Diamond. Honestly, I would be scared to touch this necklace. The Infinity Gauntlet in Avengers: Infinity War was made from a fictional metal with 5 different stones, but if it were made from gold would be worth $24,312,429. The necklace that Vivian wore in Pretty Woman would be valued at $247,433. This necklace contains 22 heart rubies surrounded by 18 diamonds.
The not so expensive, but still out of my price range fictional jewelry
From Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, the time turner would be worth $8,340. Made of 18ct white gold, this necklace with an hourglass allowed the user to time travel. In The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, the one ring to rule them all is $1,313. Even at 1 cent, I wouldn’t buy it. Luckily, the Ring of Power isn’t real.
