Water bottles are an indispensable item that most of us rely on daily, whether it's a simple plastic or glass bottle or a fancier one that we use occasionally. While these are often sold at affordable prices, have you ever pondered the cost of the world's most expensive water bottle? Meet the Acqua di Cristallo Tributo a Modigliani, which carries a jaw-dropping price tag of approximately Rs 50 lakhs. Although Acqua di Cristallo Tributo a Modigliani was recognized as the world's most expensive water bottle by Guinness World Records in 2010, it has regained the spotlight as people become increasingly fascinated by its unique design and price.

According to reports, the packaging of the bottle is made of solid 24-carat gold, and the water inside has 5 grams of 24-carat gold mixed in, which helps add alkalinity to the water. The water in this bottle is sourced from three different points on Earth - Fiji, France, and even the cold glaciers of Iceland.
