Diamond slippers

Thinking of buying some new slippers? Here's my choice!

The world's most expensive pair of shoes has been created by House of Borgezie.
This masterpiece, handcrafted from solid gold or platinum, is encrusted with 2200 hand-set brilliant-cut diamonds weighing 30 carats in total. Retail price is £140,000.

Creator Christopher Michael Shellis, a British jewellery designer, decided to make the shoes to "create a unique form of jewellery which you can wear on your feet", but the brand has yet to sell a pair.

House of Borgezie offers an "eternity guarantee" - which lasts up to 1,000 years - and the shoes have a removable sole and heel which can be replaced to keep this investment looking pristine. So far only 5 pairs have been created and Christopher Shellis asserts that no more than 50 will be available worldwide to ensure exclusivity. Hurry up to make part of this group!
