Martin Katz and DKNY launched the first-ever Million Dollar Fragrance Bottle known as DKNY Golden Delicious. The bottle was carved from 18 karat yellow and white gold with a rock crystal base and adorned with 2,909 precious stones sourced from around the world. The gemstones included a 7.18 carat Oval Cabochon Sapphire from Sri Lanka, 15 Round Brilliant Vivid Pink Diamonds from Australia weighing 1.28 carats, 4 Round Rose Cut Diamonds weighing 0.32 carats, 1.65 carat Turquoise Paraiba Tourmaline from Brazil, 4.03 carat Pear Shape Rose Cut Diamond and 07 carat Oval Cut Ruby. Brilliant white diamond created a stunning skyline of New York City that is so iconic to the DKNY brand. Each stone was hand set on the bottle, which took nearly 1,500 hours to make.
The DKNY Golden Delicious bottle traveled around the globe from London to Mexico and on to Malaysia before being auctioned by DKNY.
Proceeds from the sale were donated to global charity, Action Against Hunger that works to supply communities with access to safe drinking water and sustainable solutions to hunger.
