The showstopper at the Mercedes Benz fashion week in New York was no model in a hot sultry outfit but a bottle of Chambord! No ordinary bottle this, it was unveiled for the US audience by fashion designer Betsey Johnson and is adorned with $3million worth of diamonds, gold and pearls. Undoubtedly the world’s most expensive spirits container, it has been designed by international jeweler Donald Edge. The exquisite bottle of liquer christened, Chambord by Donald Edge, was unveiled in London and is currently on a world tour and is expected to travel to Orlando after New York and Australia soon after. The unique Chambord orb bottle is bedecked with more than 60 carats worth of diamonds including 1,100 round brilliant cut diamonds, pear cut diamonds, a square cut emerald diamond, the finest round pearls and hand-wrought eighteen-carat yellow gold.
A true jewel, this exquisite bottle houses the Chambord Black Raspberry Liqueur which is also incidentally the Official Liqueur of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. The bottle is currently being valued by Guinness Book of World record to determine whether it is indeed the world’s most expensive spirits container.
Chambord displayed this bottle at the famous fashion event as part of its Pink Your Drink program to help support breast cancer charities. Designer Johnson seemed the apt choice for doing the honor of unveiling this bottle, as she herself is a breast cancer survivor. What is more, Chambord will also be making a donation to Johnson’s designated charity, the National Breast Cancer Coalition.
But here is the best part, this gem studded bottle is not just for display but is also available for sale!
