Canine lovers have been known to splurge on their pet poochies, but Thai jewelry designer Riwin Jirapolsek takes canine love to the extremes when he crafted a tiara worth $4.2 million for Kanune, his 15-year-old Maltese.
Reuters reports that Jirapolsek took almost two months for his effort, using precious stones from his mother’s jewelry collection. The titanium tiara is embellished with 250 carats of emeralds and diamonds.
Jirapolsek said his dog tiara is not for sale, and plans to add a jeweled hair clip to his bejeweled canine accessories.
“I will make a hair clip next time because my dog has to wear clips everyday otherwise its fur will block its view,” he told Reuters Television. “It may be decorated with jewels.”
