In 2006 designer Renee Strauss teamed up with Martin Katz Jewlers to create a $12 million dress covered in diamonds. It has been labeled “The Diamond Wedding Gown.”
There’s also the “White Gold Diamond Dress” designed by Yumi Katsura in Japan. It not only has diamonds, but also pearls, an emerald, and silk.
