What made it most precious was the setting of 1000 Swarovski crystals that were placed individually by hand. That 14 million dollars piece of cosmetic was revamped with 2,500 blue diamonds on an eminent customer’s demand who wanted his item to be more exclusive.

The cap of the amazing bottle had been studded with an astonishing amount of real diamonds that counted up to 1118. These special features have sky-rocketed the price to almost 16,340 times of the brand’s original nail shades and garnered it a place as a much sought after collector’s item.
