Beyoncé Just Bought a $312,000 Pair of Shoes

 

And here they are. If you’d like to count, there are 1,290 diamonds totally 65.50 carats. The shoe is also available in platinum (about $950 USD an ounce) or 18 carat gold.

Beyonce has reportedly snapped up this pair of #200,000 GBP pounds [$312,000 USD approx] shoes from a British jeweller.  The star is said to have bought the diamond-encrusted heels from Birmingham-based The House of Borgezie.  She is expected to wear the Princess Constellation stilettos, which feature 1,290 precious stones in her next video as well as this #55,000 GBP pounds [$85,000 USD] gold basque belt. Chris Shellis, owner of House Of Borgezie, told a UK newspaper: "Beyoncé's one of those fantasy customers.  "If you want someone to model your creations, you can't get any better than her." *Mandatory credit Splash/The House of Borgezie*   Pictured: Shoes Ref: SPL1092973  030815   Picture by: Splash/The House of Borgezie  Splash News and Pictures Los Angeles: 310-821-2666 New York: 212-619-2666 London: 870-934-2666 photodesk@splashnews.com

 

They come from the House of Borgezie in London. I quote:

Sparkle like the brightest stars on the clearest night

The Princess Constellation has been by far the most challenging creation Christopher Michael Shellis has embarked upon and has called upon every resource and skill that Christopher has accumulated over last 20 years.

And she also added a matching $85,000 belt. Watch for both in her next video.  Oh–so then it’s a write-off-able business expense, is it?
