Stuart Weitzman and Le Vian join up to create $2 million pair of tanzanite and diamond sandals.

Stuart Weitzman Sandals

If you’ve already got a box full of cocktail rings, the diamond pendant, the perfect chandelier earrings and diamond and gold bracelets up the elbow, what’s left to bling out? Look down – are your feet as shiny as they should be?

Sparkly sandals are definite must-have for summer 2008, but these gemstone jewels by Stuart Weitzman are probably not going to find themselves in too many wardrobes. With a price tag of $2 million, it’s going to take a lot of saving for this shoe splurge. Suddenly the Jimmy Choos seem quite affordable.

The shoes, a collaboration between Stuart Weitzman and jewelry brand Le Vian were unveiled during the recent JCK Vegas jewelry show. The star of the sandals is a 16 carat pear-shaped tanzanite stone, surrounded by diamonds dangling over the front of the shoe, with a diamond front strap providing some foot support. Altogether the pair features some 28 carats worth of diamonds, with a whopping 185 carats of tanzanite.
