'Take it off her!' Internet miffed that Kim Kardashian now owns Princess Diana's iconic necklace
CALABASAS, CALIFORNIA: Kim Kardashian's jewelry collection just got a major upgrade. The reality star recently bought a famous diamond cross necklace that was formerly owned by Princess Diana. Known as the Attalah Cross, Diana donned the magnificent necklace in 1987 at a London charity banquet to complement her purple gown. The then Princess of Wales was able to borrow the piece from the Garrard jewelry company for the occasion.
As per TMZ, Kim has a penchant for owning vintage trinkets, including certain items owned by Elizabeth Taylor and Jackie O among others. Sources said that Kim won the necklace in a Sotheby's sale on Wednesday, January 18, for $197,453.
