The Charles Hotel in Munich, Germany will host a particularly dazzling New Year’s Eve celebration this winter.

In partnership with the jeweler Bucherer, the hotel will place a real diamond valued at €2,500 in the champagne flute of one lucky guest.

“Night of the Diamond” is the theme at the Charles Hotel this December 31, 2014. The hotel’s Restaurant Davvero will serve dishes with evocative names including “Diamant Brut,” “Deep Sea Brillant” and “Luxury Facets.”

King Crab canapés, spiny lobster and shrimp dumplings will be among the delicacies on offer.


Before sitting down to the eight-course meal, guests will take part in the “Diamond Champagne Reception.”

Each partygoer will find a crystal at the bottom of their champagne flute, but only one of them will be the real diamond valued at €2,500.

The lucky winner will find out only later in the evening when an expert jeweler makes his way through the crowd, examining each stone to determine whether it is the precious jewel.

A ticket to the festivities costs €350 per adult (around $440) including the cocktail reception and eight-course dinner, along with a DJ party and concert by Bob Chisholm & Band.
