At the W Hotel’s Arrival Lounge at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York, fashion designer Betsey Johnson unveiled a bottle of Chambord liquor made with $3 million in diamonds, gold, and pearls.The pricey bottle of booze–dubbed Chambord by Donald Edge–was designed by Australian jeweler Donald Edge, and MBFW was the latest stop on a worldwide tour that has taken the bottle to London and Berlin. From New York it travels to Orlando and Australia.
Edge told the press that the bottle is decorated with more than 60 carats of diamonds, including 1,100 round brilliant- and pear-cut diamonds, a square emerald-cut diamond, and pearls in 18k yellow gold.
The bottle serves as part of Chambord’s Pink Your Drink program to support breast cancer charities, and Johnson is a breast cancer survivor.
Word is that the bottle is being valued by the Guinness World Records to determine if it is the world’s most expensive spirits container. And, yes, it is for sale.
