The pièce de résistance – this collaboration between designer Renee Strauss and jeweller Martin Katz resulted in this gorgeous Diamond Wedding Gown. Made in 2006, this beautiful dress is made from the finest silk fabrics and contains 150 carats of diamonds. Apparently, it’s still up for sale.
What makes this wedding gown stand out is the fact that it has been designed in such a way that when the bride turns and moves, light shines off the diamonds and creates a wonderful sparkle.
Renee Strauss is known for her popular bridal salon in Beverly Hills. Her client list includes celebrities such as Shannen Doherty, Kathy Ireland, Rosanne, and Paul Abdul, and her wares have been featured in Hollywood productions like General Hospital, He’s Just Not That Into You, Because I Said So, and Coyote Ugly. Her teammate in this effort, Martin Katz, is also famous in Beverly Hills as a designer and jeweler. His creations have been worn by leading Hollywood ladies such as Angelina Jolie, Hilary Swank, Carrie Mulligan, and Claire Daines.
The designers have priced this dress at an astronomical $12 million and are in no hurry to sell it. They are using this stunning creation to promote their designs and wares at luxury fashion and bridal exhibitions. However, even at $12 million, this gown is not still the most expensive diamond dress ever made. The honor is held by a masterpiece named the “Nightingale of Kuala Lumpur” created by Malaysian designer Faisol Abdullah. This amazing artwork features 751 diamonds and its price tag is an astonishing $30 million.
