DUBAI – It took 68 artisans, 700 days and more than 11,441 diamonds to make the world’s most expensive guitar that is making its Abu Dhabi debut this month.
The guitar, named Eden of Coronet, is valued at $2 million and will be displayed at the Jewellery and Watch Show in Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre from October 26 to 30.
Michael Jackson had played on the bejeweled instrument, which has diamonds with total carats of 400 set in 1.6 kilograms of white gold. It was designed by renowned song writer Mark Lui.
“We try to display striking items at JWS each year and the world’s most valuable guitar does just that. Visitors can enjoy the guitar not only for its extravagance but also be in awe of its functional use for musicians,” said Mohamed Meheiddine, event manager. ICA/Expat Media
