We have earlier told you about the Diamonds in Glass collection from Designer Natascha Marx and glass artist Tobias Berger. Apparently, the most expensive champagne glass title now shifts to designer John Calleija for designing what he says are the world’s most expensive champagne glasses, valued at $400,000 and adorned with 1700 white and pink diamonds. The luxurious barware is a result of more than three months of hard work by five jewelers. The two glasses were chiselled from 8kg blocks of crystal and each glass stands 15cm tall, weighs 250g, and together are encrusted with 15 carats of white diamonds and six carats of rare argyle pink diamonds. But, before you imagine yourself sipping your champagne in style from these one-of-a-kinds champagne glasses these are reportedly taken by a Melbourne businessman who planned to turn them into cherished family heirlooms.
