Bruster’s Real Ice Cream, a premium ice cream retail franchise with more than 260 stores in 18 states approached LKI to create this art work. Designed to mimic the look of Bruster’s signature cherry vanilla ice cream, the cone was brought to life by designers at LKI.
The Million Dollar Cone consists of nearly 20 troy ounces of 18k white and yellow gold. The ice cream portion of this Objet d’ Art is dripping with 548 pave set diamonds ranging from .03-.37 cts. of ideal cut Lazare Diamonds, while the cone portion is adorned with prong set Lazare square emerald-cut diamonds ranging from .50-.91 cts. A 5.63 fancy intense yellow radiant cut diamond crowns the cone as its centerpiece for a total of 636 Lazare diamonds. This one-of-a-kind diamond cone has a retail value of $1 million and is for sale.
Bruster’s, which recently announced a corporate sponsorship of Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, will donate its proceeds from the sale to the mentoring organization.
