The $4.2 Million Tiara - For a Dog
Watch in awe. That tiara is worth 4.2 million dollars. Average price for a good Maltese? $1,000 - $2,500 (according to Anna's Heavenly Maltese -- a site that astonishes, to say the least). Kanune, age 15, is a lucky dog!
The tiara was created by young Thai jewelry designer Riwin Jirapolsek, who reportedly used jewels from his mother's jewelry collection to make the very special crown. The tiara is made of titanium, and encrusted with 250 carats of emeralds and diamonds.
Jirapolsek told Reuters: "I will make a hair clip next time because my dog has to wear clips everyday otherwise its fur will block its view."
I'm all for loving your dog, but I sure hope his family also threw at least $4.2 million to charity this year.
Riwin Jirapolsek has no plans to sell the tiara, but I bet the dog has.
