Diamond Snoopy celebrates the comic character’s 60th anniversary
Snoopy, the fictional character in the long-running comic strip Peanuts by Charles M. Schulz, has been given the bling-bling treatment by the Hong Kong’s fine jewelry brand TSL. To commemorate the 60th anniversary of the classic cartoon character, TSL has made a 207-carat Diamond Snoopy (aka The Ever-Shining Star). The Diamond Snoopy is 5.5 inches tall and is festooned with 9,917 diamonds, 783 black diamonds and 415 rubies. TSL’s skilled jewelry designers took eight months to complete the sparkling Snoopy. Each gem used has been carefully selected to make sure that the color, clarity, cut and size are the same. The Diamond Snoopy carries a price tag of HK $2,888,880 (approx. US $426,780).
