The last time an ice pick got our attention, Sharon Stone was plunging it into some poor guy’s chest in the ultimate coitus interruptus.
This time the pick isn’t notorious for puncturing an aorta, (although it will put a pretty big hole in your wallet), but for the insane price tag, luxury materials used and the designer who created it.
Jade Jagger, edgy jeweler designer and daughter of big-lipped rock legend, Mick, designed the “Jagger Dagger” exclusively for Belvedere. A limited number are being created, each with a blade crafted from mirror-polished carbon steel and adorned with an engraving of the frosted tree branches that decorate Belvedere bottles.
Dripping in ice, the dagger has 12 carats of diamonds set in the 18-carat white-gold hilt, 42 pieces of pale sapphire and a square of lapis lazuli sitting above the blade. The handle is bound with a twisted thread of white gold and crowned with a giant moonstone and a lapis lazuli bead. The common ice block just isn’t worthy.
The cost to chip ice for your G&T with this lux pick? $250,000. A cool quarter mill. And you can pick one up at Harrod’s in London while they last.
Too much coin? Pony up $10k for an identical-looking dagger studded with 12 carats of white topaz instead of diamonds, and 42 pieces of aquamarine in place of the sapphires. (You can use the difference to buy an actual bar.) The box set includes a magnum of Belvedere and comes in a white leather case.
