Diamonds are a girl's best friend - this confession once breathed by Marilyn Monroe is still very popular today. Anyone who wants to bring the stars down from the sky for their loved ones on Valentine's Day 2011 has the opportunity to do so at the luxury resort Frégate Island Private in the Seychelles. South African diamonds adorn the exclusive dessert, the unique creation of which was penned by chef patissier André Barbe. The garnish for the delicious chocolate cake, worth more than five million US dollars, comes from one of the world's leading diamond cutters, Rosy Blue. Legend has it that 929 diamonds, weighing a total of 151.92 carats, adorn the dessert for Valentine's Day, including seven special stones weighing between 5.05 and 9.04 carats.
For the woman who already has everything
The perfect Valentine's Day gift for the woman who apparently already has everything... the diamond-studded dessert is available at a price of approx. 5,310,000 US dollars, which corresponds to about four million euros. The price includes two first class flight tickets with Emirates Airlines to the Seychelles - no matter from which departure airport - as well as one week full board for two persons on Frégate Island Private. The millionaire, who takes his lady of his heart to this tropical paradise, is then spoilt for choice as to which of the picturesque postcard motifs he would like to have the dessert presented in front of.
Among the diamonds, certified by the independent Gemological Institute of America, is a very special stone, which alone is worth more than a million US dollars. The flawless round diamond, defined as IF, has 8.04 carats in colour class D, i.e. highly pure white. Two other particularly beautiful diamonds weigh 7.05 and 6.63 carats, while the largest, at 9.04 carats, has a clarity of VVS1, which means that inclusions are difficult to see even at tenfold magnification.
