Diamond encrusted saucepan

A diamond-encrusted saucepan costing £130,000 was one of the more decadent objects being offered up for sale at Moscow’s glitzy Millionaire Fair on Sunday.

The Telegraph reports that the saucepan, made by German cookware specialist Fissler, was clearly for the oligarch who had everything! Encrusted with 270 diamonds and covered in 750-carat gold, the salesman admitted it was not something you would ever want to actually put in the oven.

Why on earth, even if you had so much money that you could buy anything you could possibly want, would you buy a jewel encrusted saucepan?
