The jewelry specialists at Treasure Hunters Roadshow can in no way get enough of that shiny stuff. When not offering the very best purchase prices feasible at their shows, the specialists are admiring other collections of valuable metals and jewels. And where better to find the most high-priced and flawless pieces of jewelry than mainstream celebrities?

When it comes to high-priced jewelry, R&B singer Beyoncé is at the top of the list. Her wedding ring from hubby Jay-Z is valued at more than $5 million. Produced by the renowned celebrity jeweler Lorraine Schwartz, Beyoncé’s ring contains an 18k flawless diamond. Other purchasers of Schwartz include Jennifer Lopez, Barbara Streisand and Heidi Klum. Kim Kardashian is also among the list of stars sporting jewelry by Schwartz. Her 20.5-carat ring carries a value of $2 million and has attracted significant attention by celebrity media resources.

Actor Tom Cruise also has a spot near the top of the list for celebrity jewelry. The 5-carat engagement ring he bought for Katie Holmes set him back a cool $1.5 million. Cruise said he bought it immediately after his very first date with Holmes. The Treasure Hunters Roadshow industry experts ask, “When you’ve obtained that much cash, why not?”

Though movie stars and singers may go big on their jewelry purchases, no other group of celebrities outshines rappers in their public exhibit of bling. With collections of gold and jewels amassed about their necks, it is a wonder some rappers have not popularized back braces. Lil John is a fantastic illustration of this showmanship through hordes of jewelry. Along with his ever-modifying collection of necklaces, rings, bracelets and diamond-encrusted chalices, he is also known to sport substantial pendants. His “Crunk Ain’t Dead” pendant got him in the “Guinness Book of World Records” for owning the largest diamond pendant ever before built. The $500,000 piece stands seven and a half inches tall and weighs in at a hefty 12 pounds. It has 3,756 round-cut white diamonds totaling 73 carats, all rooted in 18k yellow and white gold. How’s that for staying shiny?

While the THR experts really like the sight of a multi-million dollar necklace, their real enthusiasm lies in smaller items. The company is always treasure hunting for all forms of precious metals and jewels, large or little, as well as antiques, fine art and collectibles on behalf of their worldwide network of buyers.

Items are purchased on the spot at the THR events, which are held throughout the U.S., Canada and Europe each and every week. A total listing of events can be found on the Treasure Hunters Roadshow site.
