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 experts at Steven Stone in a report by OnBuy.com, some of the jewellery in Bridgerton would be worth up to $12.2million.

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.

Her gold pear-shape diamond necklace worn in previous episodes would likely retail for $1 million.

The most expensive item would be a set of gold and ruby earrings worn by Queen Charlotte (Golda Rosheuvel), worth an estimated $12.2million in the real world

It’s unclear if the extravagant jewellery worn on Bridgerton was genuine.

The show’s costume designer, Ellen Mirojnick, told IndieWire her team of more than 230 people consisted of ‘cutters, a corset maker, an embellishment department, shoe makers, jewellery makers, and hatters’.

No expense was spared in the wardrobe department, however, as the large team handmade most of the 7,500-plus costumes used. 

Ms Mirojnick told Harper’s Bazaar: ‘[The stars] wore a different dress to every ball, aside from the amount of dresses that would take place from morning ’til dinner.’

Netflix hasn’t 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 Julia Quinn, the drama could run for a total of eight seasons.
