For the past 38 years, PNC has calculated how much it would cost to acquire five golden rings, 8 maids a milking or a partridge in a pear tree? The total cost in 2021 is $41,205.58. That's an increase of 5.7% over 2019.
The most expensive item on the list: seven swans a-swimming at $13,125 -- but that's the same as it was two years ago. The cheapest: eight maids a-milking at $58. The biggest increase is for six geese a-laying, up 57% to $660. And if you're in the market for jewelry, five gold rings will run you $895, up 8.5%.
