The world’s most expensive water is like a glittering oxymoron selling for $4.6 million. While a necessity like water and the word expensive shouldn’t even feature in the same sentence, we admittedly live in a world that loves to augment basics. Hence, the Tributo Modigliani Diamond Sterling exists with its eye-watering, mouth-drying price tag! Acqua di Cristallo Tributo a Modigliani is water sourced from Fiji and France’s natural springs and contains actual glacier water from Iceland. There’s glitz inside as well, owing to 5mg of 23 karat gold dust sprinkled into the water.
The presence of gold makes the water more alkaline than regular water, which contributes to the massive pricing. The gold-sprinkled water allegedly provides more energy than normal water. However, it is not only the content of the Guinness world record holder of the ‘World’s Most Expensive, Water, Tequila and Mezcal Bottles,’ but also its construction that makes it edible for the elite.
The handmade glass bottle designed by Fernando Altamirano, a Mexican designer, is a tribute to the late Italian artist Amedeo Clemente Modigliani and is crafted out of platinum that is studded with 6,000 high-quality diamonds. The Acqua di Cristallo Tributo a Modigliani was sold for $60,000 in 2010. The funds raised from this sale were donated to the charity to battle the cause of global warming.
