British bespoke jewellers House of Borgeziehas just unveiled the world’s first all-platinum stilettos. Costing £70,000 ($112,000), the Borgezie Platinum Cleopatra Stiletto is the brainchild of designer Christopher Shellis. The company is now taking orders for the bespoke sandals. This unique pair took four years to develop due to the high temperatures and complex techniques required to work with platinum. Each pair took Christopher over one hundred hours to complete. In addition to platinum, the stilettos – which come with a 1,000-year guarantee – are available in 18-carat yellow or white gold. These versions are bit cheaper – £60,000 ($95,800).
“They are treasures that will last forever,” Shellis said. “We only launched them 40 hours ago and we’ve already had a lot of interest in China.” Customers who place orders for the shoe will receive a bespoke fitting service, which includes a personal visit from the team and a measuring session – to make sure the platinum is molded explicitly for their feet. It’s the least they can do for that kind of money. Back in 2010 The House of Borgezie unveiled the “Eternal Diamond” stiletto. Also handcrafted from solid gold, the shoe which also comes with a 1,000-year guarantee features 2,200 diamonds.
