Antwerp World Diamond Centre unveiled boots covered in diamonds, worth $3,1 million and thus beated some previous leaders in this field such as $420,000 Kathryn Wilson’s Diamond Shoes and $150,000, Eternal Diamond Stiletto. This pair of diamond boots are world’s most expensive and according to many also the ugliest in the world, beating famous UGGs. The paisley-patterned black leather ankle boots are decked out in 4,783 grams of gold and some 39,083 natural fancy colored champagne, gray, and pink diamonds totaling 1,550 carats.
It took some 30,000 hours to designing the boots and selecting and setting the diamonds, which came from Antwerp-based companies Diarough/UNI-Design and A.F. Vandevorst. It’s cross-shape logo on the boots is made from extremely rare reddish-pink diamonds.
These unique and extraordinary boots were showcased at the Business of Design Week in Hong Kong this week, to over 400 VIPs, including Queen Mathilde of Belgium and Kris Peeters, minister-president of the government of Flanders.
