Since Halloween is just a day away, I thought it would be the perfect time to share this very rare creepy crawly...
All my arachnophobia subsided when I saw this spider encrusted with 5.56-carats of black diamonds glistening atop the faceted headphone plated in 18-carat white gold. This is Monster's limited edition Diamond Tears, a special collaboration launched in 2013 with Los Angeles-based Korean jewellery designer, Sally Sohn!
“The creation of the Diamond Tears Sally Sohn Edition was truly a labour of love for us, and being able to work with such a talented, ahead-of-the-curve designer as Sally to create such a special, museum-quality work of art was really the icing on the cake.” ~ Noel Lee, Founder and CEO of Monster Cable Products, Inc.
It took more than 100 hours of master hand craftsmanship to create this work of art. What makes this headphone even more exclusive, besides being a one-of-a-kind, is that it came all the way across the pond from Harrods in Knightsbridge, London! Those who are familiar with this luxury department store very well know that this prestigious retailer does everything grand, and given the precious materials and time it took to create this masterpiece, this limited edition product is no exception. So, what is the grand price of this sonic spider? £20,000 - approximately $30K USD.
In an interview with beauty and style blogger Ree, Sally Sohn explained:
“Like all of Monster’s critically acclaimed Diamond Tears headphones, the Sally Sohn Edition Headphone was designed to deliver music with clarity. Diamond Tears is fashion to be both seen and heard. Like all Monster audio products, they provide next-generation Pure Monster Sound.”
With the Diamond Tears Sally Sohn Edition, it is evident that the Brisbane-based company is committed to fusing fashion with technology. This work of art is truly a head-turner! Many thanks to my friend Jon at Monster for bringing me this! You sure know how to delight a girl - with diamonds!
