11 Insanely Expensive Things You Can Buy on Amazon Right Now

Want to splurge? These expensive items are up for grabs.

Amazon is a wonderland of products, and you can find almost anything and everything within its massive volume of listings. In fact, you’ve probably put this to the test wondering, “Is it possible that Amazon has this, too?” — and after utilizing the little search bar, you discovered that yes, it does. It should come as no surprise, considering that the site lists around 353 million products for sale.

Although the average consumer mostly buys everyday, affordable items, one has to wonder — is Amazon a marketplace for the rich, too? Does it list special, one-of-a-kind expensive items? You never need to doubt Amazon, because it does this, too.

This guide to the crazy expensive things you can buy on Amazon will cover:

The Current Most Expensive Item on Amazon

Drumroll, please! The most expensive item on Amazon rings up at a whopping $10 million. That’s 10,000,000 — seven zeros. It’s a painting by Abiah Avila called “Blossom Dance” that appears to be listed by the artist himself.

Abiah Avila is an American painter from Nebraska. He seems to paint a lot of floral and abstract work. It’s unclear why one of his paintings is listed for such a high price on Amazon, as his other artwork seems to cost only a few thousand dollars.

Like his style? You can find much more affordable paintings on his website.

10 Other Insanely Expensive Items on Amazon

Here’s a selection of other insanely expensive items on Amazon, ranging from the quirky to the mundane, to the straight-up awesome. Although not as pricey as the most expensive thing on Am      up there.

1. Ulysse Nardin Royal Blue “Mystery” Tourbillon Watch

This watch costs $256,000. But hey — shipping is free!

Ulysse Nardin is a watch company that was started in 1846 by the man of the same name. After a Swiss watch apprenticeship, he aimed to make precision marine chronometers. Years and years of innovation and awards turned Ulysse Nardin into the luxury watch company it is today. It has won over 4,000 prizes for its watches, which, perhaps, justifies the high cost.

In lust with Ulysse Nardin watches? Don’t worry — a few are still in the less-than-$10,000 range.

This item is for those who take their Persian rugs seriously. At about $180,000, it has got to be about the most expensive one out there.

You’re not alone if the tradition of putting ancient art worth thousands of dollars on the floor for your dogs to walk all over seems insane. Even the New York rich are kind of over it and have been causing that trend to decline, The New York Times reported.

Be Mindful of Scams and Fake Items

Amazon might be full of apparently good deals — and not good deals — on historical glassware and sports memorabilia, but be aware of scams, especially when you’re eyeing up expensive items. If a third-party vendor’s price seems too good to be true, chances are it is. Do some hard research and fact-checking before you buy.
