  Most expensive Christmas bauble-Hallmark Jewellers sets world record

 TICHFIELD, Hampshire, UK--The Christmas Tree Bauble from Hallmark Jewelers is made of 18 carat white gold with 1,578 diamonds encrusted on the surface surrounded by two red rings made of 188 rubies and is valued at $130,000 (£82,000) -which sets the new world record for the Most expensive Christmas bauble.

   The world's most valuable Christmas Tree Bauble is presented in a bespoke hand made wooden box complete with a stand.
   It is so valuable it is being kept in a steel-framed case surrounded by 6mm thick laminated glass.

   The box is surrounded by a high tech microwave bubble, which sounds if it is broken, and even has an extra internal alarm which fills the shop with smoke if it goes off.

   The most expensive Christmas ornament took over a year to make. Just to give you an idea of the attention spent on it, over 130 hours were taken up just setting the gems in it.

   The most expensive Christmas ornament is the brain child of Mark Hussy, owner of the Hallmark Jewelers family business.

   Steven Jordan FGA, DGA, who heads the team of valuers based at the London Assay Office and gave the bauble its astonishing price.

   Creator and Hallmark Jewelers partner Mark Hussey, 38, says; "This is the second bauble we have created and our most valuable by far. As the name 'Faberge' has become synonymous with Easter Eggs, I hope the name of Hallmark Jewelers will be forever linked to Christmas."

The National Association of Goldsmiths have independently valued the gold and diamond bauble to be worth £82,000.00.   

    “It is very important to highlight the craftsmanship and excellence this beautiful ornament represents. Luxury offerings should add value to the perception of luxury and quality. The Christmas Tree Bauble represents the highest quality of luxury to add a unique holiday experience,” stated CR Cataunya Ransom Lead Publicist of Mosnar Communications, Inc.  

   The previous Guinness world record for the Most expensive Christmas bauble was £26,874.
