We often ask the question here at Heaven Has Heels HQ, how much is too much to pay for a pair of shoes. For some, it's proportional to a person's earnings. If your shoes cost more than your rent for example, you may be in trouble. For others, a pair of heavenly heels are seen as an investment, much like acquiring a piece of art. Beyonce is making headlines today for her recent purchase, a pair of The House of Borgezie Princess Constellation heels setting her back $312k.
Touted by the brand as possibly the "eighth wonder of the world," the Princess Constellation is encrusted with 1310 diamonds set in your choice of platinum or 18k gold. It has taken creator Christopher Michael Shellis over two years to bring the heel from concept to creation drawing upon his 20 years of experience. Each pair takes three weeks to complete and includes a unique patented sole and heel removal feature—for easy maintenance. It also comes with a 1000 year guarantee.
For Beyonce, who reportedly racked up over $51 million in earnings in 2014 alone, these are certainly a splurge but one that is within her budget. For us mere mortals, we can only hope to catch a glimpse of them in her new upcoming video or perhaps one day, in an exhibit touring a city near you. — A.G.
