NBA basketball player Kris Humphries has set a new standard for engagement rings with the Lorraine Schwartz designed $2 million, 20.5-carat piece of bling he gave to Kim Kardashian. Thanks a lot Kris. It’s enough to make Kanye West’s diamond teeth chatter.
However, there are ways to make even a bigger impression. For example, there’s the Hublot $3 Million Big Bang watch. This is a timepiece with blinding bling and superior function. The 18k white-gold bracelet, the visible parts of the watchcase and the dial are paved with more than 637 baguette diamonds, weighing more than 140 carats. It takes 45 gemcutters and 2,000 hours of work by master gemsetters to cover this watch in diamonds. The watch also contains an in-house made caliber HUB 6003 manually wound tourbillon movement with off-centered time display.
The best part is it’s a man’s watch. It’s a gift for you from your loved one.
In return you can buy her the Hublot Big Bang Leopard. The strap is covered in a leopard print made of denim. The dial, in the same leopard print, is enhanced with yellow diamond hour markers. The case and bezel are made of 18k red gold. The bezel is set with smoked quartz, andalusites and citrine stones. The 41 mm watch with an HUB4300 automatic chronograph movement retails for nearly $41,000. Certainly not the big bang of the men’s watch, but it does complement the bling with a look that’s feminine and wild.
With these watches, you and your lady can pass happily married Kim and Kris on Rodeo Drive, look at her ring and say to him, “Is that all you got?” before flashing your watches and the seeing the look of disbelief and disappointment on their faces.
