World's most expensive Christmas tree

Recommended Posts

Owlscrying

The world's most expensive Christmas tree has just gone on display in Japan - and it worth a cool £1million.

Despite the recession, the makers have created the dazzling 24k gold tree to create a "gorgeous atmosphere".

The tree is decorated with more than 240 jewels including diamond baubles and strings of pearls, weighs more than 21 kilograms - and is worth (£1million) 150million yen.

The tree went on display this week at the Ginza Tanaka jewellery shop in Shinsaibashi, Osaka.

"Economic sentiment is sluggish. But, at least in this store, we want people to feel a gorgeous atmosphere," a store official said.

I expected the tree to be massive, it's nothing special to look at IMO....

I will not be hetting this tree, that's for sure.

Unbelievable that they want the people who are being hit economically to have a gorgeous atmosphere, by looking at this twitty expensive tree. I'd be fuming if I saw something like this and was wondering how I was going to put food on the table. Nothing surprises me anymore.. :rolleyes:

Ok, if you really look at this picture, this isn't really a christmas tree. It's a gold tree, and not even solid gold. That's gold leaf over paper or something similar (big whoop, I have gold leaf sheets at my house--it's not even particularly expensive). Then they took their stock of bracelets, rings, necklaces and tacked them to the gold leaf tree. This isn't anything remarkable. The jewelry store up the street from me has something similar as a display piece!

This stupid tree is just a cheesy counter display for their jewelry stock. Unimpressed. Not a tiny bit of thought or creativity went into it. It's not even pretty! LOL.

Shiny, but not pretty.

Maybe they like it.

Ya, I beg to differ... here's Christmas tree that must certainly cost more than million if you decided to buy it (and theoretically you could, all all the parts are available through Swarovski). It's covered in thousands of crystal ornaments.

This is the Swarovski Crystal tree which graces the Eaton Mall in Toronto. Now THAT'S beautiful. I've heard people who have seen it up close say it is absolutely breathtaking.
