I'm all for spending money anyway you want to - grills, watches, boulder-sized rings, blinging chains - but come on, paying $US15,000 for diamond and gold contact lenses is stupid. When did sacrificing your eyes become cool?
Conceptualized and designed by two guys with too much time and money, Dr Chandrashekhar Chawan and Sanjay Shah, the contact lenses are adorned with 18 diamonds on a gold plate set 6-9mm from the cornea. The diamond contacts are limited to 3996 pairs and will cost $US15,000. It's as if someone saw the Swarovski crystal contacts and thought those weren't extravagantly dumb enough. Diamonds are pretty sharp, people. [Born Rich]
