If you have been feeling proud of or have been bragging about an expensive dress in your wardrobe that is worth a few thousand, then it is the time to hold back and take a look at this classy piece from Nita Ambani’s closet.
We all know that Nita Ambani is the wife of the wealthiest man of India and she herself is also one of wealthiest women of the country. Therefore, in sync with her net worth and status, she is often been spotted wearing expensive outfits and flaunting extravagant bags, jewelry, watches and footwear.
So the world already knows that Nita Ambani has quite a lavish lifestyle but only a few would know that one of the sarees in her wardrobe is so expensive that one can even buy a house with that much money! Known as the ‘Vivah Patu’ saree, it was designed by the director of a leading silk garments manufacturing company, The Chennai Silks.
The saree that is touted to be the most expensive saree of the world was made by 36 skilled craftsmen of Kancheepuram with 12 months of hard work. The hand-woven silk saree features 11 paintings of Raja Ravi Varma, the Indian art icon. On the back of the blouse, Lord of Nathdwara has been depicted beautifully.
Having a weight of 8 kilograms, the embroidery in the saree is done with threads of real gold and precious stones such as Diamonds, Emerald, Ruby, Yellow Sapphire, Topaz, Pearl, and Coral have been embedded in it. Wondering what its price is?
A whopping 40 lakh Rupees!!! According to a report by Bollywood Presents, this price has made this saree get a place in the Guinness Book of World Records.
Nita Ambani was spotted wearing this saree at the wedding ceremony of Reliance Group’s CEO Parimal Nathwani’s son in 2015. Needless to say, she isn’t expected to repeat it anytime in future as she doesn’t wear the outfit she has worn once!
