These Are the Most Expensive Champagne Glasses in the World
If you though drinking champagne couldn’t get any more posh, then you haven’t seen the world’s most expensive champagne glasses.
Ealuxe thinks that an expensive and high quality champagne can only be savored utilizing a high quality champagne glass. And these two champagne glasses are just that!
Let’s find out more about the Diamond & Crystal champagne glasses, shall we?
Designed by Australian jeweler John Calleija, the world’s most expensive champagne glasses are adorned with 15 carats of white diamonds and 6 carats of rare argyle pink diamonds.
While was experimenting with his designs, John Calleija came up with this idea.
He declared : ‘I just wanted to get into a different area of objects, like luxury goods.
I drew a whole series of diamond-encrusted letter openers, salt and pepper shakers, scissors, everything. But I drew the glasses and there was just something about them.’
The costliest champagne glasses are the result of a team of 5 jewelers who created the luxurious glasses in 3 months, from 8 kg blocks of quartz crystal.
Featuring a total of 1700 white and pink diamonds, each champagne glass is nearly 6 inches tall and weighs 250 g. Also, they are finished with platinum 18 carat white and rose gold, providing an exquisite style.
The most expensive champagne glasses are priced at $400.000.
At the official opening of John Calleija’s second store in London, the most expensive champagne glasses were the main attraction. And for good reason.
They were the pride and joy of the designer’s team :’Tears were coming from their eyes because they know how much this has been a labour of love. We’ve put tonnes of effort and time and design into these. They’re just spectacular.’
The Diamond & Crystal champagne glasses were purchased by an anonymous Melbourne businessman who is planning to turn the most valuable champagne glasses into cherished family heirlooms and who also promised to bust them out only for special occasions.
‘I told him they’d be around $400.000 and he said ‘I’d like to put my hand up for them … I’ll take them.‘, declared John Calleija.
