Spare Change

Spare change, anyone?


As in, have you got a spare £70,000 to spend on these custom made House of Borgezie platinum heels?


I sure don’t but then again, I don’t think I would want to. Don’t get me wrong, the thought of a pair of designer shoes made specifically to fit myself and no one else is pretty fairytale-esque. However based on the pictures I’ve seen I don’t think you’ll find me elbowing people out of the way to get them.


Created by bespoke jewellers House of Borgezie they are the world’s first ever platinum shoes and they’re called The Borgezie Platinum Cleopatra Stiletto. They also come with a 1,000 year warranty and they also come with replacement soles which can easily replaced by the wearer. I’m starting to think £70,000 isn’t so bad. These shoes practically pay for themselves!


This isn’t the first time House of Borgezie has come up with fantastical creations of the shoe kind. In 2010 they made a stiletto encrusted with 30 carats of round brilliant cut diamonds and gold. They even described it as “a fine piece of jewellery” and I have to agree on every level.

These shoes rounded out at a cool £100,000 which is $160,000. Are you even surprised anymore?


So what do you think readers? Would you ever purchase such feats of wonder if given the money? Let me know your thoughts.


Also be sure to check out House of Borgezie, they have some amazing creations of the jewellery and bag kind.


Interesting fact: they created a bespoke bracelet for the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton. They have royal connections.
