Many people remember wanting to go to Burger King when they were children not only for the BK kid's meals but also for the fast food joint's corporate cardboard crowns. Well, now you can truly eat like a king with this one-of-a-kind piece of modern art that transforms the restaurants tacky, iconic paper toy into an actual crown.

The regal headpiece is made from sterling silver that is plated with 18 carat gold, and features adornments of blue topaz, almandine garnets, citrine and other precious gems, while the Burger King logo is nobly presented made up of magnificent jewels. So the next time you are thinking about going out for a quick bite to eat and don't want to get all dressed up, remember this crystal-encrusted crown and that Burger King has a dress code too!
