Professing your love this Valentine’s Day is priceless.
But those who have the money can err on the literal side, with a bouquet of roses that costs $28,000.
They’re not just any garden variety roses. One hundred endure roses, the U.K.’s leading pressed flower, according to Luxury Launches, make up the Cullinan Bouquet — named after the world’s largest gem-quality rough diamond ever found. They are collected along with six Grandeur Roses, all completely encased in 24-carat gold.

The bouquet also includes Heart Roses created by the specialist florists along with striking Juliette Roses with their double-petalled structure. At the very middle of the creation sits a Mon Chérie curved glass cloche, with two intertwined heart roses that hold two Cullinan diamonds in the center — one 0.5 carat and the other 0.3 carat.
The entire arrangement is sprinkled with diamond dust — the residue that is formed after larger, multi-faceted diamonds are cut and shaped — and can allegedly “last anywhere between three and five years and can further be encased in glass if you need it by your bedside for life.”Read the full story at Luxury Launches
