Crystal Heels, Giuseppe Zanotti
If only a queen were to buy them, the first-ever million-dollar pair of diamond shoes could quickly become the latest fashion statement for royal wannabes worldwide. On display at the luxurious Leon's of Beverly Hills through Aug. 1, the exclusive accessory is the world's first pair of hand-strassed diamond heels.
The Giuseppe Zanotti pump, featured in size 37 (U.S. 6), sparkles with 11,000 tiny diamonds, all of which were tenderly and meticulously placed by the creative team at the internationally esteemed Crystal Heels, a global pioneer in high-end, fashion shoe brands. The diamonds completely cover the open-toed shoes for a seamless, shimmering appearance, pushing accessory glamour to new heights and setting fresh trends in both exclusive formalwear and shoes.
"Without a doubt, our diamond shoes are fit for a queen," comments Crystal Heels' founder Evelyn Fox. "While they're genuine, million-dollar diamond shoes, the quality in the application of the diamonds, as well as the fit, comfort and construction of these pumps are priceless. They're not only a perfect pairing for royalty, they're ideal for an A-list actor, fashion icon or any other celebrity trend-setter."
Having officially debuted at the upscale jewelry boutique in early February just in time for the stream of Valentine's Day shoppers the shoes have become a major draw at Leon's of Beverly Hills. They feature genuine diamonds of varying carats (.03CT to .4CT) strategically spaced for show-stopping appeal.
"These shoes are out of this world!" says Ilana M. of Los Angeles. "I could see them from a mile away."
While "The Million Dollar Shoes" are cost-prohibitive for most, luxury shoppers are in luck. Fox offers a deep collection of similarly stunning Swarovski crystal heels in a number of styles, plus custom shoes are available on request. Prices start in the $500 range, with many of the shoes ranging in the low to mid-thousands. That means today's upscale customers wishing either to blow a little of their expendable cash on something truly unique or splurge on themselves for a special occasion such as a wedding can have their pick of not only quality, designer styles and brands but exceptional pricing as well.
