World's Most Expensive Advent Calendar at Mondial

06 Dec 2018

On December 1st, 2018 Mondial Pink Diamond Atelier unveiled the world’s most expensive Advent Calendar in their store on the ground floor of the iconic Queen Victoria Building.

The calendar, worth in excess of A$4,000,000 (Four Million Dollars), has been meticulously handcrafted by master cabinet maker and Sydney resident Tim Garside, using specially selected,
natural Australian timbers and embellished with precious gemstones, gold and silver as well as hand-made, crystal chandeliers. With secret doors and panels numbering 1 to 24, each day of December will reveal a new
treasure to the public up until Christmas day. The calendar will not only delight those interested in luxury jewellery and time-honoured craftmanship but also draw attention to the historic QVB
as it continues to celebrate its 120th birthday.


The Calendar is available now to view in their store window on Ground Floor.
