A young Thai jewelry designer has crafted a tiara worth $4.2 million for his pet dog, using precious stones given to him by his mother.
Riwin Jirapolsek, who showcased the tiara at a dog show in Bangkok recently, said he wanted to make something special for Kanune, his 15-year-old male Maltese.
He took almost two months to finish the piece, which is made from titanium encrusted with 250-carats of emeralds and diamonds.
Jirapolsek said he has no plans to sell the tiara, and now wants to create a jeweled hair clip for his beloved canine.
“I will make a hair clip next time because my dog has to wear clips everyday otherwise its fur will block its view,” he told Reuters Television. “It may be decorated with jewels.”
