BEIJING, Oct. 16 — If you think bejeweled wedding dresses are not enough to be
an eye-opener, how about a wedding dress bearing 9,999 karats, or about two
kilograms of gems?
Such a dress has been put on sale on Monday at a jewelry store in Shangrao in
eastern China’s Jiangxi province.
A report says it is a work by a well-known Hong Kong jewelry designer.
Its price tag reads 999,999 yuan (132,902 U.S. dollars).
The sky-high price has raised many eyebrows. Admirers said the dress was
astonishingly beautiful, but they thought no one would make the bold purchase.
