    Mervis Diamond Importers claim to be the first to create a diamond cupcake, which is festooned with eight ideal cut round brilliant diamonds around its circumference and a two carat Asscher cut diamond in the center. Jonathan Mervis cites that he thinks a diamond-topped cupcake could be the ultimate in luxury to make engagements and weddings as stunning and memorable as possible. He thinks that the diamond cupcakes can be really famous among brides. Mr. Mervis hopes the dazzling dessert will be listed as the world’s first diamond cupcake in the Guinness Book of Records. The price tag on the diamond cupcake reads $30,000. They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend, and this diamond cupcake could become a bride’s best friend.

    This $18,000 chocolate dessert is encrusted with a single diamond stone nestled in the blueberry topping.
    The delicious and ultra luxe dessert is made by Mervis Diamond Importers, a jewelry chain in Washington, DC. The chain is widely known for their advertising techniques and this chocolate dessert is one of their latest.
    On July 23rd, Mervis Diamond Importers is holding an open event where attendees can eat from a diamond-topped chocolate fountain while browsing through their collection of jewels.

    Am I the only one who thinks those cupcakes and stuff pictured are ugly and unappetizing? If they can afford to top their baked goodies with diamonds, can't they also afford to hire some decent pastry chefs?

    You took the words right out of my mouth :shock: C'mon, the fondant is crooked :blink:

    Also, I know of at least one woman who swallowed her diamonds each and every day she was in a concentration camp during WWII (and she did make it out, with her diamonds), so the idea of combining diamonds with something edible is not exactly appetizing to me ...

    From what I see, the $30,000 is basically charging you for the diamonds.

    I don't see what the big deal is about. He baked a lopsided cupcake and put a few diamonds on it. I can go out and do the same thing.

    Hell, I'll sprinkle my salad and spaghetti with emeralds next time.

    Yes- the cupcake design looks ugly.
    the diamonds will probably be kept as a wedding memory :p I know people can do the most ridiculous things in their weddings...so I wouldn't be surprised if this actually sells.


    *reminds me of something I have read a long time ago..still an interesting story to share.:innocent:


    lipstick and mascara for $14 million

    Recently, H. Couture Beauty sold custom-designed packages for its lipstick and mascara for $14 million. The cases are made from 18-karat gold and are adorned with rare pink and blue diamonds. “This is the most expensive makeup that has ever been sold,” Allison Kugel, spokesperson for H. Couture Beauty. “It was purchased for a young woman’s 25th birthday,” she says. The packages will be completed by December and will be accompanied by security staff when they are delivered.

    Luxury is in demand, according to H. Couture Beauty, which sells its crystal-encrusted lipstick container for $150.

    H. Couture Beauty’s Socialite Collection also includes this mascara container, which retails for $589.

    i dont even consider that to be luxurious, more like stupid..I'd rather spend 500 on a nice cashmere or a great pair of boots. People that would buy that crap irritate the heck out of me.

    Sometimes it's a fine line between luxury and stupid ;) But I agree that this is well over that line ...
