While exact retail price for the collection continues to remain under wraps, reports claim it as the most expensive in the world, with the speculated price being estimated around $408,496 (1.5 million AED).
Designed by De Rigo Vision, the glares glare with 51 fully cut River diamonds, their weight totaling at 4 carats. 60 grams of 24 carat gold have been used to create the awe generating piece.
A special technique was employed to set the diamonds. The placement of stones represented a carpeted pattern, making each and every piece ooze with a heavenly glow. So, what you have in return is not so much a diamond pave as a group of them huddling together, in a new, innovative design.
Chopard’s famous C logo appears on the arms of the glasses. That Chopard, with it latest model, spins out of range for people with compressed pockets comes like no surprise though. The range has, after all, always found a huge fan following among the celebrity crowd. While not so much into the Chopard glasses, Elton John remains associated with their range of beautiful watches as a designer. As for the glasses, there is a whole army of stars, ranging from Gweneth Paltrow to Kate Beckinsale to Tom Jones, whom they have mesmerized back through time.
