Victotia's Secret

Victoria's Secret has come out with the latest edition of its "fantasy bra," featuring 3,575 black diamonds, 117 certified white rough brilliant cut diamonds weighing 1 carat each, 34 rubies and two black diamond "drops" that hang from the lingerie and together weigh 100 carats. The total weight of the bra is 1,500 carats, and the asking price is $5 million. But in 2006, the lingerie company offered a bra priced at $6.5 million that was set with 800 carats of diamonds by Hearts on Fire and also featured a 10-carat diamond brooch as a centerpiece. Earlier editions were even more expensive, with the 2003 model priced at £11 million (approximately $20 million then), a 2001 bra that was worth $12.5 million and a bra worn by supermodel Tyra Banks in 2004 that was valued at $10 million.
