Tiffany conch and diamond Chrysanthemum Brooch ~ what do you call an octopus with 31 legs?

If you think that this Tiffany & Co. brooch looks more like an octopus than a chrysanthemum, your instincts might not be too far off:

 200801010-Tiffany-Chrysanthemum-Brooch

Its petals are carved from a single conch shell, and the piece has an exquisite and rare conch diamond weighing in at 25 carats.   This is one of those crazy pieces whose price is $8,008,433,269.

Just kidding.  That’s really the phone number to inquire about the actual price.

You don’t really think of phone numbers being a billion digits long, do you?  Then again, you probably don’t often call up Tiffany.
