The Smoking Dragon: The World’s Most Expensive Smoking Pipe

By Paul Joseph

Russian company Bon-Cadeau has created the mother of all smoking pipes that doubles as an ultra-luxurious hand-crafted jewellery piece.

Priced at $85,000, it is said to be the world’s most expensive smoking pipe and a cursory glance at its components quickly reveals why.

Shaped as a dragon, the unique pipe comes embellished with 47 pieces of black and white diamonds, 38 pieces of rubies and 6 pieces of fine Sapphire

The bejewelled serpent also boasts of an exclusive piece of Blue Coral alongside four pieces of exquisite tiger eye and tourmaline respectively.

The Smoking Dragon weighs a total of 300 grams out of which 275 grams consist of silver and 22 grams make up of different varieties of gold.

As an added lavish feature, the pipe can also rotate seamlessly on a rack of jade, while the mouth and wings of dragon simultaneously open up with a quick press.

At the tail end of last year, created a collection of Faberge-style figurines that each took a year to make. The entire collection was priced at more than $4.4 million.
