Million Dollar ice cream cone up for sale, anyone interested?

Million dollars for an ice-cream cone and you can’t even eat it! How cool is that? Now, before you just brush away this news as non-sense, read further. It isn’t a gourmet ice cream that will tingle your taste buds but is an exquisite piece of art that will soothe your senses and feast your eyes. Yes, I’m talking about the million dollar diamond ice cream cone that was unveiled at the JCK Las Vegas Show. Brusters Real Ice Cream commissioned Lazare Kaplan, a diamond manufacturer to create a diamond ice-cream cone that resembles the Bruster’s signature waffle cone. The masterpiece consists of nearly 20 troy ounces of 18k white and yellow gold, 548 round Lazare Diamonds, 87 Lazare square emerald cut diamonds, and one breathtaking 5.63 carat Fancy Intense Yellow radiant cut diamond. The 152.16 carat total weight one-of-a-kind piece has a retail value of $1 million and is for sale! The idea was to create the awareness and donate the proceeds of the sale to Big Brothers Big Sisters, a mentoring organization that helps children achieve their potential. Designed to mimic the look of Bruster’s signature cherry vanilla ice cream, the cone was brought to life by designers at Lazare Kaplan International, which has also created such high-profile items as a $1 million jacket for Kathy Hilton worn at the 2007 Golden Globes.
