A pair of black leather ankle diamond boots that are completely covered in 1,550 carats of natural fancy colored champagne, grey and pink diamonds were tested by members of Nationwide Jewelers. These Australian and New Zealand jewelers were given the opportunity to try on the world’s most expensive footwear that is valued at $3.5 million.
They were manufactured by diamond dealer Diarough and designed by Antwepr-based designers An Vandevorst and Filip Arickx during the December 2013 Business of Design week in Hong Kong.
It took 30,000 hours for the boots to be created, and were adorned with 38,883 diamonds and 4,753 grams of gold.
