One Australian businessman will be taking slightly more expensive sips of champagne soon.

Diamond Champagne Flutes

Apparently one Australian loves his champagne (and diamonds) so much, he’s willing to pay $400,000 for a couple of champagne flutes. According to John Calleija, an Australian jeweler, an Ozzie businessman ordered two 15cm tall flutes with a difference. The glasses, chiselled from 8kg blocks of quartz rock crystal, feature 15 carats of white diamonds and 6 carats of pink diamonds from the country’s Argyle Diamond Mine, set in platinum and 18K white and rose gold.

Although I doubt they’re dishwasher safe, the new owner is apparently planning on using them at ‘special occasions’. Cheers…
