Your sweetheart surely needs this. It’s a chocolate-domed treat! At Moshulu Restaurant in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, for Valentine’s Day, you get two platinum and diamond earrings totaling a whopping 5.78 carats, a chocolate dome encasing the jewels, and a chocolate hammer to crack open your dome — all for the low price of only $50,000…
Maybe the restaurant owner just needed a creative way to unload some hapless earrings? Given the precise carat size, one would assume we’re talking about a single, specific pair of earrings available for the promotion. What if more than one customer wants in on this dessert deal? This is now a national story after all. Ha! It’s a fun story.
The restaurant is very unique — it’s on a boat!
