Move over Manolo! Your pricey pumps just got some $erious competition.
Luxury jeweler House of Borgezie has created stilettos that cost $155,000 per pair. Dubbed the Eternal Borgezie Diamond Stiletto, the bespoke shoe, which comes with a 1,000 year guarantee, is comprised almost entirely of diamonds and gold.
Each shoe is first handcrafted by a goldsmith and then handed off to a diamond setter, who encrusts the shoe “with over 2,200 individual sparkling diamonds.” Total diamond bling factor: 30 carats.
The company declares that it has “created perfection” with these shoes and likens them to other “perfect” creations like the Faberge Egg, the Bugatti Veyron and the Mask of Tutankhamun
The shoe’s designer, Christopher Michael Shellis, told the Daily Mail that he spent three years developing the shoe.
“To bring the Eternal Diamond Stiletto to life, I quite literally had to reinvent the fundamental principle of classical stiletto construction,” Shellis told the Daily Mail.
"The result is not so much a shoe, but rather a fine piece of jewelry that can be miraculously yet practically worn as the ultimate feminine adornment."
So who’s going to sport these jewelry-cum-shoe confections? While the client list is confidential, the Daily Mail reveals that A-listers from the worlds of music, modeling and sports are on the list.
