Imagine sitting on a toilet that costs more than your house. That's what a jeweler in Hong Kong has created. A solid gold toilet with over 40,000 diamonds in the bulletproof seat. The cost to sit on such a toilet is about $1.3 million dollars.
The $1,287,652 toilet was produced by Coronet, one of Aaron Shum Jewelry’s brands. Shum himself debuted the high-karat crapper Monday at the second China International Import Expo in Shanghai. He hopes to set the Guinness World Record for most diamonds in a toilet seat. The fine folks at Guinness will be inspecting the toilet this week, in fact, to see if it fits the criteria.
He says that this toilet would fit right in within any esteemed collection and that the seat features more than 40,815 diamonds, clocking in at an eye-popping 334.68 carats in total.
No word on if there are any potential buyers for this one of a kind toilet.
