The statement “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend” is taken to new heights with Stuart Weitzman‘s luxury diamond and gemstone embellished shoes. While they are definitely a sure shot attention grabber on the red carpet (or on the street or party for us normal folks), this million-dollar platinum shoe has received a unique honor: a country postage stamp. Yep, that’s right…a stamp. Issued by the Spanish government, the stamp contains Stuart Weitzman’s name and a picture of the oh-so-haute shoe. Weitzman was celebrated at an event held at the National Shoe Museum in Elda, Spain, marking the 50th anniversary of the internationalization of the Spanish shoe industry. His factories have been located in Alicante, Spain’s shoemaking headquarters for the past 37 years.
The shoe features 464 Kwiat diamonds with a total carat weight of 61.92 mounted on a platinum mesh frame. The creation of the shoe was a collaboration between Platinum Guild International, Kwiat Diamonds, and, of course, Stuart Weitzman.
