Diamond encrusted 'Cinderella' shoe fetches $500k at charity auction
Wellington, Oct 5 (ANI): A shoe worthy of a modern day Cinderella has been sold for almost 500,000 dollars, making it one of the most expensive pieces of footwear in New Zealand.
Auckland footwear queen Kathryn Wilson teamed up with Sarah Hutchings of Orsini Fine Jewellery to create the diamond encrusted high-heel, Stuff.co.nz reported.
Hutchings painstakingly placed more than half a million dollars worth of white diamonds on to a single classic court-heeled shoe to create a one-off work of art.
The process involved hours of surgeon-like precision using tweezers and a special adhesive.
The shoe was sold at an auction organised by Wilson to raise money and awareness for Ronald McDonald House. (ANI)
