Hollywood-born jewelry couturier Azature, also known as the Black Diamond King launched his first jewelry collection in 2007. Now recognized as the premier black diamond-focused jewelry designer, he's added nail polish to his repertoire. And not just any nail polish, but one made with 267 carats of black diamonds.
'One day I thought, "why not showcase this style on nails?" So I developed a Black Diamond Nail Polish with the same attention and quality as my jewelry in order to preserve the elegance of the black diamond.' - Azature
The polish, now the most expensive in the world at $250,000 for the one-off product, beats out previous title holder Model's Own $132,800 Gold Rush Couture polish in a bottle with a real yellow gold cap studded with 1,118 diamonds.
above: previous record-holder for the world's most expensive nail polish also produced a budget version without the cap and box.
A $25 retail version for the rest of us, said to contain one black diamond and packaged in a diamond shaped bottle, will be carried at Fred Segal's Los Angeles stores.
