Diamond-Set Shoes Modeled on Rolls Royce Go on Sale in China

A pair of diamond-set shoes modeled on a Rolls Royce have been created by Chinese designer Chris Lu and are on sale at a shop in Guangzhou in China for US$5,320.

The high-heeled sling back shoes are completely covered in diamonds, while the toe caps are made to resemble the grille of the famous car.

Called the Charm of Rolls-Royce, the pair won second prize in last year's International Shoe Design competition and could be entered for a Guinness world record in the category of the high-heeled shoes set with the most diamonds.

The shoes have created such a level of excitement in China that the shopping mall where they are being sold has put up a 1.8-metre tall replica of the shoes – set with 318,000 crystals.
