Netflix’s seductive and scandalous period drama Bridgerton has taken fans by storm since its release on December 25.
But it’s not just bodice-ripping action that has caught viewers’ attention, as many are also intrigued by the show’s extravagant fashion and jewellery.
Daily Mail Australia can reveal the estimated value of several items of jewellery featured in the series, including the infamous diamond necklace given to Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor) by Prince Friedrich (Freddie Stroma).

The cast, including the ambitious Bridgerton and Featherington families, the Queen, and Lady Danbury, were all adorned with diamonds, rubies, pearls and emeralds – but how much would they fetch in the real world?
According to jewellery experts at Steven Stone in a report by OnBuy.com, some of the iconic Bridgeton jewellery would be worth up to $12.2 million in real life.
The UK-based jeweller estimated that with at least five diamonds of approximately 10ct each used in Daphne’s large white gold necklace it would be worth $6.1million.
While her more dainty gold pear shape diamond necklace worn in previous episodes would likely retail for $1 million.

However, the most pricey items according to the jewellery would have been a set of yellow gold pigeon blood ruby drop earrings worn by Queen Charlotte (Golda Rosheuvel).
As the ruby drop earrings are extremely rare, they suggested it would carry a hefty price tag of $12.2million in the real world.
It’s unclear if any of the extravagant jewellery worn on the series were real, as the show’s costume designer Ellen Mirojnick previously told IndieWire that her team of more than 230 people consisted of ‘cutters, a corset maker, an embellishment department, shoe makers, jewelry makers, and hatters’.

It would appear that no expense was spared within the wardrobe department however, as the large team made a majority of the 7,500-plus costumes used – with lead star Daphne (actress Phoebe Dynevor) wearing more than 100 outfits alone.
Costume designer Ellen told Harper’s Bazaar: ‘[The actresses] wore a different dress to every ball, aside from the amount of dresses that would take place from morning ’til dinner.’
Netflix hasn’t yet announced a season two for Bridgerton, but all signs point to a renewal.
Given how many books are in the series by American romance novelist and Jane Austen superfan, Julia Quinn, the drama based could run for a total of eight seasons.
