You know the holidays are coming when Swarovski takes over Kuala Lumpur’s shopping mall decorations.
Last year, Swarovski built Asia’s tallest indoor Christmas tree at Pavilion Kuala Lumpur and this year… Well, this year they’ve done it again!
This sparkling holiday season, Swarovski is proud to have set another world record by unveiling the world’s first Crystallised Merry Go Round!
The Merry Go Round is inspired by Swarovski Crystal World in Austria and holds key elements from their Christmas 2016 campaign.
The Merry Go Round consists of 3 million Swarovski crystals which makes it a total one of a kind valuable Christmas decoration! And in the spirit of Christmas, all proceeds go to charity!
To celebrate more blingness, take a look at what The Week reported as the world’s most valuable Christmas decorations:
Jeweler Steve Quick created a table top Christmas tree purely out of five pounds of solid 18 karat gold. The tree is decorated with diamond ‘ornaments’ and a detachable platinum star with a 4.52 karat diamond top – oh, which can be worn as a pendant! Steve Quick sold it off and gave all the proceeds to a American Cancer Society.
Embee Jewels of London made a white gold sphere consisting of 1,578 diamonds which is also surrounded by two rings with 188 rubies on it. It’s valued at $130,000 with 15% of the proceeds going to the National Autism Society
A floral designer Pasi Jokinen-Carter created what’s apparently “the most expensive Christmas wreath in the world”. It’s a $4.6 million creation that includes 17.49 karat rubies and a 3.03 karat fancy yellow diamonds.
Neiman Marcus sells a gold velvet Christmas tree ‘skirt’ designed by Jay Strongwater. It’s embroidered with gold silk thread and embellished with Swarovski crystals and goes for $1,650.
I guess it’s not so crazy that Kuala Lumpur is home to the Worlds First Crystallised Merry Go Round when we’ve got all these other valued holiday decorations out there! Be sure to check out the Merry Go Round yourself
