It’s not the picture frame but what it holds that truly counts. However, in this case, it may be quite the opposite. We’re talking about Artist Debbie Wingham’s latest creation – an exquisite artwork which she touts as the most expensive picture frame in the world. Yes, that’s right!

Worth over $2 million, it comes adorned with more than 10,000 diamonds on a circular frame in the image of a clock face. It further features a painting of Dubai’s iconic skyscraper, the Burj Khalifa, and makes for quite a luxurious piece.

Commenting on it, the artist in a video said, “This is super sparkly, but that’s what you would expect from the world’s most expensive, but it’s balanced with the reclaimed metal, which I think, the contrast of the old and new also inkeeps with the visual aesthetic which of course is time, you know the whole design of this is like the skeleton of a clock.”

“By that, I mean, you know, the roman numerals, it’s the structure, but I wanted to cut it away so that you could see the spectacular building which really represents present-day Dubai,” she further added. And it isn’t just photo frames that Wingham takes an interest in.

In 2018, the artist unveiled Million Dollar wedding cake worth a whopping $1 million. Similarly, she also unveiled an abaya in 2013, which came embedded with over 200,000 hand stitches in 14-carat white gold thread, priced at $345,428. Well, talk about a penchant for all things expensive!
