For women, an outfit may not be complete without the perfect pair of shoes and handbags. For a man, a “look” is not quite right unless a snazzy belt accompanies it. While most men would be rather satisfied with a quality leather belt, others have a much pricier belt in mind. Here are some of the most lavish belts ever created.
Gucci Diamond Belt
Luxury product extraordinaire, Stuart Hughes, teamed up with the company Goldstriker and created a website called Republica, which offers ultra luxurious items for the affluent. One of their products is the Gucci diamond belt, which is considered the most expensive belt in the world. Worth $256,970, the belt boasts a Gucci logo made from 250 grams of platinum and is decorated with 30 carats of flawless diamonds. An anonymous Republica client commissioned the piece. Only one other like it exists.
Akillis’ Diamond-Encrusted Alligator Leather Belt
The alligator leather belt features a diamond-encrusted buckle with diamonds covering empty Kalasnikov rifle bullets. French jeweler Akillis designed the unique belt. Seven of these belts were sold worldwide at a price tag of approximately $64,500.
Louis Vuitton Blason Belt Buckle
This designer belt buckle is as famous for the 523 precious stones it features including rubies, sapphires, and diamonds, as it is for its Louis Vuitton logo. The French term for coat of arms is Blason, hence the belt buckle’s name and shield shape. This accessory will set you back a mere $44,000.
Dolce & Gabbana Diamond Belt
For a total price of $91,879 you can own this designer Dolce & Gabbana belt, which displays 53 diamonds, equaling 26.5 carats. The diamonds are set around the Dolce & Gabbana logo buckle.
Though most guys would settle for a sturdy leather belt, some truly want all the stops puled out for them. In that case, shell out tens of thousands of dollars, and it’s yours. While you’re at it, how about adding some colored diamonds, such as pink or yellow diamonds, to the mix? They will certainly add some spice to the belt, not to mention a little extra to the price.
