London Jewelers have created a $2.5 million bra to be worn by supermodel Miranda Kerr at Victoria's Secret Fashion Extravaganza 2011. London owner Candy Udell, and her daughter, Randi Udell-Alper, worked on the project from design to execution for close to a year. Using an aquatic theme, Udell-Alper, said, they incorporated elements — “mermaids, oceans, treasure chests and a tassel, which is a big trend in jewelry design this year.”

The process of creation included more than 500 hours of skilled labor to hand-place more than 10,000 stones, including 3,400 pearls and 142 carats of diamonds as well as citrines, aquamarines, and the show-stopping tassel centerpiece adorned with two 8-carat-plus white diamonds and two perfect matching yellow diamonds of more than 14 carats.

Since 1996, it’s been a Victoria’s Secret signature to feature a ritzy, bejeweled number in its shows and holiday catalogs. The Fantasy undergarments have run from the $1 million number Claudia Schiffer wore in 1996 to an $11 million design worn by Heidi Klum in 2003 to the record-holding $12.5 million stunner worn by Gisele Bundchen in 2000.
