Christmas revelers will be able to celebrate the holiday this year with a new kind of Christmas cracker – containing diamonds and costing as much as $371,315 (GBP 247,000).

Six white diamonds selected by U.K. jeweler Tresor Paris, each with a different cut, are being offered inside “hand-crafted” crackers – cardboard tubes wrapped with decorated paper that pop when pulled from either end. A common feature of the Christmas dinner table in many English-speaking countries, they usually contain a cheap gift or joke on a note inside.

The diamond crackers are described by luxury product seller VeryFirstTo on its website as the “world’s most sparkling Christmas crackers ever created.” They cost $1.5 million for the entire set of six, which include a cracker with a pear-shaped, 3-carat, D-VVS2, type-IIa diamond selling for $371,315, the most expensive in the set. The lowest priced contains a 3-carat E-VS1 for $169,864. More elaborate settings will incur an extra charge, the company said.

The crackers were designed and made by the House of Crackers using exotic paper sourced from India, super sheer ribbon from Cheshire, poinsettia flowers, and goose feathers, according to VeryFirstTo.
