Most of us end up shopping on online retail sites like Amazon.com because we want to find better deals than we can find in local stores. However, not everything on Amazon is sold for discount prices. You can find extremely expensive items listed in almost any Amazon department. While it is doubtful that some of these sellers seriously intend to sell their items at these prices, it is entertaining and informative to see what some of these expensive listings are offering. Below are 25 of the most expensive products listed on Amazon.
The Fortinet FortiGate-3960E Four-Year Unified Threat Management (UTM) Bundle
Cybersecurity is important to us all, especially large companies that bear the responsibility of keeping the personal data of millions of clients safe. Maybe that’s why web security systems such as the Fortinet FortiGate-3960E Four-Year UTM Bundle don’t come cheap. You can pay almost $550,000 for four years of its cybersecurity software, including web filtering and anti-spam services. While it isn’t necessarily strange to see a security system sold for so much money, it is unusual to see it being advertised on Amazon.
3.01-Carat Fancy Vivid Yellow Loose Diamond
If most of us were to have the luxury of going diamond shopping on a Sunday afternoon, chances are, we would want to see a diamond in person before deciding to buy it. However, there are apparently a few folks out there who prefer the convenience of ordering their diamonds online. For almost $250,000, you can get a 3.01-carat yellow diamond delivered right to your door from Leibish & Co. The diamond is fully insured, certified by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA), and ships for free.
Bollywood Collection Gown
Do you need a traditional western Indian bridal gown fast? Don’t worry, Amazon has you covered. The dress, sold by Balaji Emporium, will set you back $15,000. This gold and blue dress is dry-clean only and may require further stitching after purchase, as noted by its sellers.

These strappy, open-toe black heels go for $1,250 on Amazon. They have leather soles and 4.75-inch heels. The luxurious shoes are imported from Italy, where designer Giuseppe Zanotti was born.
Samsung 46″ LCD Video Wall Display
Remember when people could only get television in black and white? Though the simple days of television weren’t that long ago, today it is possible to spend nearly $78,000 on an extremely gorgeous television on Amazon. The Samsung television is 46 inches long and weighs 61.5 pounds. So far, its only reviews on Amazon seem to be jokes about the price.
Astell & Kern AK500N 1TB Full Set
This product is described as a “desktop network audio project.” It includes an AK500N Network Media Player, a power supply, an amp, “limited edition” headphones, and more. It combines advanced digital technology with analog sound. Its seller claims that it achieves perfect noise isolation through battery-only operation.

If you’d like to make the movie theater experience more comfortable and personal, one option is to invest in the Klipsch THX Ultra2 Home Theater System for almost $13,000. The system uses the same professional-grade technology as Klipsch’s commercial theater systems. The seller writes that it will create “the most dramatic and realistic entertainment experiences you’ve ever heard.”
Signed LeBron James Jersey
Memorabilia autographed by celebrities have always fetched a lot of money for those lucky enough to own them. One signed LeBron James NBA jersey from 2003 is currently being sold for almost $182,000 on Amazon. It is stunning that James could pull something out of his laundry basket and sell it for an amount of money that many of us have never seen in one place in our entire lives.
Babe Ruth autographed baseball
Perhaps even more amazing than the ability to find autographed items from today’s celebrities on Amazon is the availability of historically relevant, valuable items signed by beloved and long-gone popular figures. For example, a baseball autographed by Babe Ruth is currently being sold on Amazon for over $118,000. You won’t want to throw this ball around the yard.
Mickey Mantle autographed set of cards
There’s even more for baseball fans to take delight in on Amazon. At a slightly lower cost than the Babe Ruth baseball, Mickey Mantle fans can get a set of cards autographed by the Rookie himself for $90,900. The cards have been authenticated. Once again, the reviews section on the Amazon page is mostly full of jokes about what the reviewers supposedly sold to be able to pay for the cards.
Swarovski crystal chandelier
Need to brighten up your home? Consider investing in a Swarovski crystal chandelier for $120,510. This hanging light fixture from the Swarovski Empire series is described as “flowing with symmetry, creating a dramatic explosion of brilliance.” Hopefully, you have someone to help you carry it up the stairs, as its shipping weight is 538 pounds.
White Spaces fine art painting
You can even buy fine art on Amazon. The 1955 painting White Spaces, by Bernard Healey, is currently on sale on Amazon for $20,000. The abstract artwork is signed and painted with acrylic on canvas. Healey is a landscape artist and a founder of the Bay Area Figurative Movement.
Fictitious Parrot dine art painting
Some of the works of fine art available on Amazon are quite old. Fictitious Parrot, a 1670 lithograph by Nicholas Roberts, is listed on Amazon for $275,000 (plus $45 shipping). The work is a framed watercolor depiction of a parrot. Roberts was a 17th-century natural history artist known for the scientific accuracy and aesthetic beauty of his work.
Sometimes you can’t find the right bicycle at the local flea market or bike shop and you have to hit the internet. One 1960s bicycle has been listed on Amazon for an astonishing $75 million. While it is unlikely that anyone actually expects to sell a bicycle for so much, perhaps the seller is trying to convince someone to part with a little more money than they would have if the bicycle had been listed for a normal amount of money. After all, any price will seem like a steal compared to $75 million.
Vatican: from Peter to Francisco fine art painting
The painting Vatican: from Peter to Francisco is listed on Amazon for a price of $197,500. Artist Anatoly Silov painted it with oil on canvas in 2014. The seller describes it as a portrait of the “five most historically famous popes of the Catholic world.” It features a full-length depiction of the popes standing side-by-side in ceremonial attire.

Brioni Black Mink Fur Blend with Leather Double-Breasted Coat
The most expensive coat on Amazon is a mink fur blend double-breasted coat by Brioni. It is full-length, made with 100% silk lining and sells for $25,000. Though the coat is designed for cold weather, most of us probably wouldn’t want to expose such an expensive garment to the elements.

Though the Pokemon franchise is making a comeback today with Pokemon Go, it experienced its first heyday decades ago, and many of its products are now considered vintage collectibles. One such product, a gold deluxe Pokedex Pokemon handheld encyclopedia, is listed on Amazon for $50,000. Other, less ambitious sellers, however, have listed the same device for as low as $85.
Precor TRM 835 Commercial Series Treadmill with P30 Console
