The knickers which are retailing for £232 and come with a detachable diamond are being advertised as "the ideal way to look after your money in these troubled financial times". Apparently, this is because diamonds have increased 27 percent in value over the past year. They are set to be sold at Selfridge's beginning in November. (Oh! Just in time for Christmas!)

I'll have to put those alongside my Berkey Water Filter, my portable solar panels, my storable food and my snowshoes. A girl can't survive earth changes without a pair of diamond ivory silk studded knickers, eh? It's a must have. (Not.)
These aren't even attractive knickers. I could have spent a whopping ten pounds sewing a massive cubic zirconia into a pair of "Hanes Her Way" big-time knickers and made something memorable (like the Titanic, no doubt.) And besides, who wants to worry about being mugged...for their panties?!
I was wondering if the diamonds that are embedded in the knickers get bigger with each increase in size? In which case, someone better call Lloyd's of London to insure mine.
