Unfortunately, not everyone can afford this things.

Here’s Richard Russell via King World News:

What are the very rich doing?  Here’s what.  A Cezanne painting, ‘The Card Player,’ was sold in 2011, when the royal family of Qatar bought the painting in a private sale for $250 million (the highest price ever paid for a painting).

(Another) group is attempting to form a diamond ETF.  They will buy gem quality certified diamonds up to six 6 carats in size.  Russell Comment:  Gem quality diamonds are scarcer than gold, but if the fund is established, it should push up the price of gem-quality diamonds, which are growing more expensive by the month.

Notes:  Monaco real estate is the most expensive on earth.  According to Citi Private Bank, the average cost of real estate in Monaco is $5,408 per square foot.
