A Qatari Sheikh bought a $600k piano studded with a staggering half a million Swarovski crystals

You may have seen pianos before, but never like this! British bespoke piano company, Goldfinch has created what they are calling the world’s most luxurious piano: a Steinway masterpiece customized with half a million Swarovski crystals! Goldfinch collaborated with British contemporary artist Lauren Baker for this dazzling piano which was commissioned by an influential Sheikh in Qatar and shipped from Cambridge, England, to his home in Doha.

Above the piano’s keys is the Steinway and Sons logo beneath which is the Goldfinch signature. But it’s not just the outside that’s remarkable. “It’s been a delight to bring another customer’s dream to reality. We love nothing more than blurring the lines between timeless tradition and contemporary British art, but it’s not all about good looks – our craftsmanship is combined with cutting edge technology for that seamless finish and ultimate musicality,” said Goldfinch director Tomas Norman.

The price of this musical extravagance? £420,000, that’s a cool $613,510! Musical talent may be something money can’t buy, but if you’re wealthy enough, you can certainly buy a musical instrument that doesn’t need a player to ensure all eyes are on it!
