Millionaire Laid to Rest With $100,000 Worth of Jewels


The definition of going out in style

In many diverse cultures around the world, the dead are laid to rest with their most prized possessions. The most common example of this practice can be found in ancient Egypt, where Egyptian royalty was often mummified with lavish jewelry, prized treasures, even their beloved pets. However, in our modern world, very few countries continue with these practice, with many in the West forgoing bodily autonomy in death via cremation. But, for a 33-year-old millionaire in Trinidad, he went out in style and was buried with over $100,000 worth of diamond and gold jewelry. Check out the gallery below to see his luxurious burial garb and let us know what you think of his flair in the afterlife.
