The title of world’s most expensive bottled water goes to “Acqua di Cristallo Tributo a Modigliani.” Designed by Fernando Altamirano, the 1.25 ml bottle is equipped with 24-karot gold, spring water from France and the Fiji Islands, and a price tag of $60,000!

Well, it’s just water, Available in US$40 750ml and US24$ 350ml versions the frosted corked bottles are covered with hand-applied Swarovski crystals. Bling H2O is the creation of Hollywood writer-producer Kevin G.Boyd.
