I Heart Paris, But Brooklyn Is More Affordable

This ring by over-the-top jewelry company Tournaire is also over-the-top in it's pricetag. $13,000 American Dollars. I suppose no one can "own" Paris for less than $13K. The ring could be a bargain depending on how you argue. You have to admire the craftsmanship, and the creativity. I think I would rather be sporting the Brooklyn Bridge ring by Noir as a don to my new 'hood...for the low price of $250 American Dollars.
Back to Tournaire. I'm on the fence about this company. It seems that they will immortalize, in precious metals and gemstones, a McMansion (oops, I mean "dream home") or PowerYacht so that the Trophy Wife can wear a three-dimentional image of the other trophy on her dainty polished hand while she and her Keeper strut about town/resort to remind themselves and others just how important their material possessions may be in the grand scheme of the world economy. Again, I don't really know what to think about this other than it being rather entertaining on this rainy evening. It is a cool concept...I just...more "homes" pictured below.
