This brings a whole new meaning to the downfall of our economy. People wonder why we are all in debt, and maxing out our credit cards daily, but all they need to do is look in Hapers Bazaar for the problem.
This page is part of a fashion spread. In all the other pages, there were $11,000 coats and $15,000 shoes but falling on this page, I wondered how, if she’s wearing no clothes could it be expensive. Oh boy was I thinking incorrectly. She is wearing two rings and a bracelet. You may not believe me but the sum of the prices of her jewellery is $1,312,050 and no, those commas are not meant to be full stops. The bracelet is $49,200 which is more than an average family car costs. The white gold and diamond ring is $12,850 which could buy you a very nice overseas holiday. How much did the diamond and platinum ring cost, you may ask? A whopping $1,250,000. In most places, that’s a very nice house, or a lot of cars, or a tertiary education, or full schooling at one of the better private schools in the country. How can someone spend that on a ring?
It’s sad, that’s all I can say to explain it. Very, very sad.
Love and stupid prices,
