The bra is inspired by an underwater dreamland of luxury, exotic glamour and sexy aquatic Angels. The centerpiece tassel is adorned with two exquisite white diamonds, over 8 carats each, and two astonishing yellow diamonds, over 14 carats each.
Overall, the bra features 142 carats of diamonds. All of the magnificent gems were embroidered onto Victoria’s Secret Gorgeous Push-up Bra frame with custom scalloping. The intricate design of the bra required an inspection of over 10,000 stones from around the world to find the perfect colored, sized and shaped gems. Every stone was meticulously hand placed by master craftsmen in 500 hours of skilled work, according to Victoria’s Secret.
