The $2 million diamond wheels

Asanti set outdoes even the $150,000 gear shift knob

BornRich

After posting a recent item about a $150,000 gear shift knob , we didn't think we'd see an automotive accoutrement so egregious for awhile. Only a week later, however, BornRich has given us just that: A set of wheels totaling $2 million.

Like the aforementioned diamond Bentley knob, the Asanti wheels aren't items traditionally featured on a gadget blog but are simply too outrageous to pass up. This 34-inch set--which boasts 26,000 diamonds and 1,200 rubies--is touted as "the world's most expensive custom diamond wheels." We'll take their word for it.

If nothing else, they're worth mentioning just to throw in the face of Swarovski .
