Jada Dubai's newest creation, "Passion Diamond Shoes", elegant stilettos made from real gold and embellished with two round 15-carat D-flawless diamonds, went on sale this past week for $17 million and are believed to be the most expensive pair of shoes in the world. The stunning stilettos are on display at the world's only seven-star hotel, the Burj Al Arab in Dubai.
Each shoe is trimmed with 118 smaller round diamonds and features one of the impressive crowning jewels prong-set near the pointed toe. Everything about the "Passion Diamond Shoes" exudes luxury. Even the insoles are inscribed in gold (can that possibly be comfortable?).
Jada Dubai's record-setting shoes, which were designed in coordination with Dubai-based Passion Jewellers, took almost nine months to create.
"Jada Dubai designs only shoes with diamonds," said Maria Majari, the co-founder of the company. "For the launch of our second collection, we wanted to create a piece that is truly unique in the world using very rare diamonds."
While the prototype shoes are shown in size 5.5, tanyone rich enough (crazy enough?) to place an order will receive a custom pair in her size.
The previous record for the world's most expensive shoes was held by a $15.1 million pair created by British designer Debbie Wingham in October of last year.
