I love searching Etsy by location so I can support Charlotte-based small business owners with the convenience of online shopping and delivery. It’s my go-to Christmas shopping destination for unique, meaningful and affordable gifts.
But those aren’t the only things you’ll find on Etsy. Modify your search to arrange items from highest to lowest price and you’ll discover a whole new side to the online marketplace.
Here are some of the most interesting Charlotte-based Etsy listings for high rollers.
$250,000 5.25-carat diamond ring by Beautiful Petra
Beautiful Petra is a unique Etsy-only jeweler with a cult following. The 5-star rated shop creates custom rings starting at $650 all the way up to the cost of a house.
Their most expensive ring features a GIA-certified 4.5-carat center diamond surrounded by another .75 carats in the halo and around the platinum band. Only one is available. Please form an orderly queue.
$21,750 metal fish sculpture by Twisted Metals by NevaStarr
Twisted Metals is a sculpture gallery featuring works of art made out of salvaged objects. The most expensive item in the shop is Anglora, a one-of-a-kind metal fish sculpture made out of shipwreck remnants and industrial metal scraps. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to nautical wildlife preservation.
Curious how much it costs to ship a 500-pound metal fish? $995.

Artist Bethany Salisbury helps people glorify their furry friends with unique pet portraits. Custom items start as low as $50 for one pet on a 4″x4″ canvas all the way up to a 48″x48″ piece featuring three pets for $14,000.
