Would you spend a staggering $100,000 on a hookah or a bong? Sweden's Desvall, the makers of these incredibly high-end Shishas, are hoping you will. Made with hand crafted ceramic and smoke chambers of hand-blown crystal by Orrefors, the smoking apparatuses are equipped with details like Swarovski crystals, real 24k gold, chrome and hand-sewn leather. They represent the ultimate blend of technological precision, luxury and handmade tradition making each Desvall Shisha is a unique work of art.

Although Born Rich reports their most expensive is priced at $60,00 (and a custom one of a kind version for $100k), this German site says the prices for their Shishas range from 32.000 Euro ($42.6184 USD) to 80.000 Euro ($106,000 USD).

With its flawless design and unparalleled beauty the Desvall Shisha is the ideal choice, an object worthy of true art. All Desvall Shishas are individually crafted to perfection; each piece is milled out of a solid block of metal with tolerances down to five hundreds of a millimeter. Every metal piece is sanded and polished by hand, and individually coated.

For a mere $100,000 you can have a on-of-a-kind Shisha made to any of your personal specifications:
The patented, innovative centre ring of our shisha is not only a beautifully crafted feature; it is also an engineering feat. It allows, for the first time in shisha history, for the pipe to rotate around its own axle. Absolute precision and attention to detail ensures that all 91 components of the shisha form a perfect seal.
The Desvall Shisha was invented and patented by Emile Desvall, the creator. Below are some of his patent designs:
The mechanics of the smoke chamber facilitate the blending of smoke as it circulates within the shisha’s structure. A strategically placed magnet holds the shisha’s mouthpiece to the tower when not in use, maintaining perfect poise at all times. This delicate balance of state-of-the-art engineering and traditional craftsmanship is a defining feature of the Desvall Shisha.
A team of dedicated artisans, working to the highest possible standard, carefully crafts each shisha. The process involves Sami traditional handicraft from the North, leather design & assembly in Stockholm, engineering & production in the southern city of Goteborg, and Orrefors for the unique glass blown vases.

Smoking the shisha symbolizes the blending of nature and culture – the ritual of sharing and appreciating everything that the world has to offer; a celebration of the earth’s bounty.
