Acqua di Cristallo
The Most Expensive Water Bottle in the World
The most expensive bottle of water sold was for 774,000 pesos, $60,000 US (£39,357) at an auction organized by Planet Foundation A.C. at La Hacienda de Los Morales, Mexico City, Mexico on, 4 March 2010. The glass bottle is covered in 24-karat gold and is based on artwork by the late Italian artist Amedeo Clemente Modigliani.
A Touch of D'Argenta
The funds raised from the auction were donated to the foundation to battle global warming.
The glass bottle is handmade and covered in Platinum and the replicas in 24K Gold. Based on the artwork of the late Italian artist Amedeo Clemente Modigliani. This bottled water is a tribute to his work. The water itself is a blend of natural spring water from Fiji and France and also contains glacier water from Iceland.
Versions of the Bottle
The bottles are made in Gold, gold matte, silver, silver matte, crystal, and various compositions, the regular price being $3,500. But this does not mean that the Acqua di Cristallo is available only to the moneyed. The Acqua di Cristallo bottle is also available in an Ice Blue version for $285. The good thing is fifteen percent of all the sales proceeds will be donated to global warming causes.
