Diamond Draped Licca–Chan

Not the best looking doll in the world, but for $923,000 you would expect it to be. Maybe for a million?

This is specially produced doll from Tomy Toys called "Licca–chan" comes clad in a tiara and gown studded with 881 diamonds, a total of 51.4 karat. It was made to be part of an exhibition called "Girlish Culture".

It looks like they have concentrated value by heavily loading Licca–chan with bling; how else could you justify the near $1 million price tag? I guess the old technique of slapping diamonds on something to make it expensive still works.
