It is not the first time Mouawad created a very expensive piece. The jeweler was also the one designing the most expensive bra in the world — the $11 million Very Sexy Fantasy Bra that Heidi Klum showed to the world in the 2003 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. The bra was covered by 2,800 sapphires, amethysts and diamonds and weighed 2,200 carats.
