To mark its 10th anniversary, Raffles Dubai, the landmark luxury hotel has planned a grand celebration. The venue will host the global public unveiling of the ‘World’s Most Expensive Shoe’ on Wednesday, November 1st. Created by Debbie Wingham, a designer known for her flare to present expensive and unique pieces of art, the diamond encrusted shoe is worth a whooping $15 million (AED 55 million).
Today is going to be the first time that the lavish masterpiece will be revealed to the general public, and we can’t wait to find out what everyone thinks of it. Commissioned by a private client of the designer as a surprise 30th birthday gift, the artwork features over 1,000 diamonds set in platinum with 24-carat gold thread stitching. The diamonds used in the piece are extremely rare due to their colour, size and flawless clarity, and include two three-carat pink diamonds, valued at $4.4 million (AED 16.2 million) each, two blue diamonds of one carat, worth US 1.9 million (AED 7 million) each, and four flawless clarity three-carat white diamonds.
