Sarah Jessica Parker Wears $200,000 Necklace in SATC!

How did Carrie Bradshaw afford this?

Sarah Jessica Parker was spotted on the set of the Sex and the City last week wearing a gemstone Solange Azagury-Partridge necklace worth $198,200. (She's wearing it on Us Weekly's newest cover, left.)

That's right: $198,200.

That's more than the median home price in the United States of $180,100, according to the National Association of Realtors. 

It's not the first time Bradshaw has blown the budget to satisfy her pricey taste in fashion.

While playing a struggling columnist in the series (she went on to became a successful author in the first movie), she realized in one episode that she spent $40,000 on shoes and couldn't afford to buy her apartment as a result. BFF Charlotte York (Kristin Davis) loaned her the cash by pawning her diamond engagement ring to ex husband Trey McDougal.
