$30 Million Diamond Bikini Featured in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit IssueFebruary 16, 06
With 150 carats of D Flawless diamonds supplied by Steinmetz Diamonds, the two-piece, modeled by Molly Sims, is reportedly the most expensive item of diamond apparel ever made.
Designed by Susan Rosen, the bikini has a 51 carat pear shape diamond, a 30 carat emerald cut diamond, a pair of 15 carat rounds and a pair of 8 carat pear shape diamonds. The sparklers are set in rust resistant platinum.
This year’s swimsuit issue showcases 26 models, including tennis star Maria Sharapova and super model Heidi Klum, who is depicted wearing body paint instead of a real swimsuit.
