Harrods is set to launch a range of £5,000 ($10,000) Swarovski-studded chocolates, with exclusively designed packaging by Lebanese chocolatier, Patchi.

The premium packaging, in which the 49 chocolates are hand-wrapped in Indian silk and placed on suede leather partitioned with gold and platinum, was created by Patchi’s in-house design team.

Every chocolate is adorned with gold and Swarovski crystal and silk rose. These are then placed in a stunning box made of genuine leather and magnificent hand woven silk from India and China.

A Harrods spokesperson says, “A number of our customers have actually asked for a product such as this which has the ‘wow’ factor.”

The chocolates are part of Harrods’ exclusive new range of “High Life” products, which will launch next month. Unlike the Royal Collection from Cocoa Gourmet that sported edible gold and diamonds, Im not sure you can actually swallow the crystals…
