Disney teamed up with Kay Jewelers to create one “glamorous” version of the Star Wars character. It is 4.5 inches tall and weighs more than 1.5 lbs. but the special thing about after the price is it is the combination of 18-carat pure yellow gold and 18 carats of diamonds.
The piece was officially presented at the Force 4 Fashion show in New York City. Its price is estimated at around $135,000. The fancy piece of BB-8 will be auctioned off for charity in order to support St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.
George Murray, Chief Marketing and Merchandising Officer for Kay Jewelers, pointed out that:
“More than 600 hours went into the design and development of the BB-8 replica, and this incredible custom design is an example of the craftsmanship and dedication that is available to guests every day at our Kay Jewelers stores and online at Kay.com.”
