For the bride that really, really, really wants to make a statement at her wedding, and that statement is, “My wedding dress cost more than most of my guests will earn in a lifetime,” Japanese designer Keiji Tagawa has created a dress aptly named “Platinum White.”
This $1.7 million dress is made of 1,250 platinum beads along with more than 3,000 other jewels including pearls, aquamarines, moonstones and crystals. Precious metal and semi-precious stones are woven together to create images of cherry blossom trees and roses.
According to a Yahoo News story about the heavily blinged dress,
The gown, which for now will go on display rather than down the aisle, was designed on behalf of the Tokyo office of Platinum Guild International, a producers group, at a time that platinum is trading at 25-year highs.
Bling bling, indeed.
