"The most expensive clock in the world" went on show at the Dubai Jewellery Show, Wednesday, with famed Russian jeweller Victor Moisekin presenting the "priceless" artifact.

The “The Horn of Plenty” clock was finished after 10 years of design work and is decorated with 4,144 diamonds, more than 500 hundred sapphires, and over a kilo of gold, according to General Director of Moisekin said. The Russian jeweller added that "the part with the pearl is rotating and showing time. So you can see exactly hours and minutes" adding that the intention was "to show the beauty of stones, the beauty of flowers, in this clock." The main theme of the clock is the mother-of-pearl shell of an Indian oceanic mollusk nautilus.

The clock is part of Moiseikin Jewellery's 'Imperial Collection' and is priced at over $ 1.5 million (€1.4 million). More than 300 exhibitors from 25 different countries are presenting their valuable creations during the Dubai Jewellery week at the Dubai World Trade Centre, running from 9-12 of December.
