A dress has gone on sale in Malaysia with a $30 million price tag, Reuters reports.
The dress is decorated with 750 diamonds, including a 70 carat pear-shaped stone at the centre of the bodice and a train encrusted with real diamonds.
The designer Faisol Abdullah told Reuters: “Stocks drop, gold is even falling but a diamond is forever. This is a dress with diamonds. Why go backwards, why can’t we go forward? We are going to the fantastic, but it’s real. You are getting value for money with these diamonds.”
Flame on! This jewelry watch from Vacheron Constantin features the newest officially recognized diamond shape, the “flame cut.”
The shape, that looks like a small flame, is emphasized in the dial as well as the use of 200 flame cut diamonds all over the watch, 20 on the case, 60 in the dial, and 120 used on the bracelet.
The case dressed in white gold and embracing a diamond-set dial, echoes the flame shape of the gems.
