According to auction house Sotheby’s, reality television star and social media titan Kim Kardashian has acquired the Attallah Cross, the iconic amethyst and diamond pendant Princess Diana wore on multiple occasions.

During the auction house’s “Royal and Noble” sale in London on Wednesday, the item, created in the 1920s by the British jeweler Garrard, fetched 163,800 pounds ($202,300).

Kim Kardashian Purchase Pendant Worn By Princess Diana

Princess Diana‘s Attallah Cross was acquired by Kim Kardashian.

Diana famously wore the pendant to a 1987 charity dinner, and Sotheby’s confirmed that a representative of Kardashian purchased it. The pendant sold for more than twice the pre-auction lowest estimate.

Before the auction, Sotheby’s Kristian Spofforth remarked, “Jewelry owned or worn by the late Princess Diana very seldom comes on to the market, especially a piece like the Attallah Cross, which is so colorful, striking, and unusual.”

In some ways, this odd pendant represents the princess’s increasing self-assurance in her jewelry and clothing choices at that specific time in her life.

The jewelry won’t be Kim Kardashian‘s first encounter with a piece of fashion history.

The 42-year-old garnered media attention last year when she showed up to the Met Gala wearing the exact gown that Marilyn Monroe wore when she sang for then-president John F. Kennedy on his birthday in 1962.

The Los Angeles-based museum Ripley’s Believe It or Not!, which owns the item, first disputed the charges that Kardashian had harmed the movie legend’s gown.
