For the girl that has everything: £70,000 platinum shoes

Emma Woollacott

A pair of stilettos made from solid platinum has gone on sale for the eye-watering price of £70,000.

Designed by Chris Shellis of the House of Borgezie, the Platinum Cleopatra Stiletto took more than four years to develop, with each pair taking over a hundred hours to complete. To make them, goldsmiths work with metal at temperatures of over 1,000 degrees C.
