The Jewelry Insider

October 6, 2008

Diamonds, pearls and gemstones are familiar faces in your jewelry box, but what if you found them in the floor? Nope, not on the floor, IN the floor. Luxury tile and flooring company, Pietra Firma, is satisfying the opulent tastes of home design hounds by putting the bling in an exclusive line of glittering tiles.

This limited edition of LuxTouch jeweled tiles can be used on your walls, ceilings and, yes, floors if you so desire. And at a mere $1,000,000 per square meter, we’re sure you’ll want a football-field sized swatch of ‘em. Encrusted with more than 1,000 diamonds, 2400 pieces of mother of pearl, 400 pieces of abolone shell and 500 pieces of black onyx, one square meter of the material is sure to outshine that Mop N Glo-ed hardwood you’re so fond of.

According to Pietra Firma’s website, “When inlaid, the diamonds sit slightly raised above the tile, which results in the maximum tactile and visual effect. Walking barefoot on a LuxTouch floor can only be described as a truly sensual experience. “

Or a good heel buffer. For the well-heeled among us, LuxTouch is the dazzling way to take that golden parachute on a walk to the wild side. Your accountant will love you for it.
