Not too long ago, we brought the story of the blue diamond that was set into the Jane Seymour ring – valued at $2 million. Now, we bring you the elaborate experience that goes along with buying that ring – including taking home what could possibly be the world’s most expensive chopsticks that are adorned with diamonds.
Russian conglomerate World of Diamonds, which created the Jane Seymour ring and the chopsticks, values them at $17,000 a pair – and the lucky buyer of the ring and the experience will get two sets of these beauties.

The plating technology provides optimal resistance against oxidation and offers ultimate sheen.
On the chopsticks a floral motif consisting of five geranium=type flowers (to mime the Jane Seymour ring setting) is created on two sides of the chopsticks via laser etching.
At the top of each chopstick, set against the yellow-gold plating, are five diamonds – each uniform in diameter (approximately 3mm) to offer a seamless design. In total, each pair of chopsticks is set with 42 round brilliant diamonds — in D-F color and VVS grade — weighing 4.20 carats. Each diamond has been hand faceted and polished. Each chopstick features five diamonds on each of its four sides and a single diamond on the top.
While the floral motif runs down two sides of each chopstick, the other two sides have been left alone – enabling the buyer of the experience to engrave a message, a name, a date or other sentimentality on the other two sides. That engraving will be completed by the Group’s craftsmen in Geneva prior to the experience. The chopsticks will be presented to the owners in an exclusive, custom-built case. The $34,000 value of the two sets may well be the world’s most expensive chopsticks.
Of course the entire experience has been billed as the world’s most expensive dinner. At $2 million, the experience for the buyer of the ring includes a private luxury cruise, a helicopter tour over Singapore, a 18-course dinner at Ce’ La Vi, 10,000 roses and the diamond chopsticks and the Jane Seymour Fancy Vivid Blue Diamond Ring.
