Xmas Extravagance

You've decided on your tree; now for decorating...

If you plan on going all out this year, why not deck the halls with an ornament carrying the price tag of a Maserati?

Hallmark Jewelers has set out to become the name that's synonymous with Christmas by creating the world's most expensive tree ornament. It would definitely make for a beautiful addition to someones Christmas tree;
I can imagine the gifts underneath it after that shot to the pockets. But it's nothing to a boss.

--The ornament itself is composed of 18 carat white gold and is studded with over one and half thousand diamonds. Two rings consisting of 188 red rubies surround the body of the ornament. It took over 130 hours just to set the gems in the piece. The National Association of Goldsmiths independently valued the bauble at 82,000 British pounds which depending on the exchange rate is just over $130,000. (Source: Wealth Republic)
