A diamond thong worth Singapore $168,000 ($122,000) was the highlight of a lingerie fashion show in Singapore recently.

The Triumph Luxurious Diamond Thong had 518 brilliant-cut diamonds, totalling 30 carats, studded into the front of a black lace thong in a floral pattern. The skimpy underwear that left little to the imagination also had 27 white gold tassels hanging off it.

Danielle Luminita, a brunette model from Romania, was carried down the runway on the shoulders of two male models wearing only the diamond thong. “It is very comfortable, it’s not heavy or scratchy or anything,” the model said.

A spokeswoman said that the thong would be dry-cleaned before going on display and it is not for sale.
