Shimansky creates $2.2 million Diamond Soccer Ball

While all the star wives and divas at the FIFA World Cup get busy adorning themselves with the world’s most expensive tattoo, their better halves need not miss out on the sparkling action. For the soccer crazy, bling loving man, Shimansky has in store the exquisite Diamond Soccer Ball! The unique diamond studded ball made from 6620 white and 2640 black round brilliant cut South African diamonds, weighing 3500 carats in totality, give this ball a total weight of 2.2kgs and a value of $2.5 million. The sparkling soccer ball took more than 3 months to create. Currently in manufacturing process (reportedly a few diamonds still need to be purchased), the ball is set to make its world debut at the FIFA World Cup where it will be unveiled by jewelry designer Yair Shimansky.

A bespoke creation, it will definitely make for one of the most priceless souvenirs of this coveted tournament. What is more, crystal replicas of the ball will be shown at Shimansky’s stores during the World Cup and each replica will be auctioned with proceeds going to local charities.
