Diamond encrusted contact lenses


So you've blinged up your neck, decorated your ears and added horns to your forehead (okay, maybe not the last one). What's next?

Your eyeballs, that's what. A company is offering contact lenses fitted with real diamonds and gold that you position over the most delicate organ of the human body. No sweat.

That's right, 18 diamonds studded onto an 18-carat gold plate on a special lens is yours for just $15,000 (£9,000).

Created by Shekhar Eye Research in Mumbai, the 'La SER' brand lenses can be custom-made in four designs of diamonds on white gold, diamonds on yellow gold, or just gold or yellow gold. Decisions, decisions...
