Even if you’re not a wine drinker and don’t recognize the name “Chambord,” you’re certain to recognize their distinctive round bottle. Chambord Liqueur Royale de France is a black raspberry liqueur that comes in a bottle styled after the globus cruciger—a medieval symbol of Christian authority featuring the cross atop a globe. Now Chambord and Donald Edge have taken that authority to the next level by creating what may just be the most expensive wine bottle in the world.
Chambord by Donald Edge is a handcrafted Royal Orb bedecked with gold and gems. It features more than 1,100 brilliant, princess and pear cut diamonds as well as a single emerald cut diamond. As if that wasn’t enough, the bottle also features a number of the finest pearls. All of these gems are set in the bottle’s 18k gold embellishments.
The bottle is valued at over $2 million and is currently under review by Guinness World Records. It was used in the world’s most expensive breakfas and a world tour is in the works.
