The world's costliest saree was the cynosure of all eyes and why not? It's not just in pure silk but has 12 precious stones like platinum, diamond, gold and ruby - all hand woven using a special double warp technique to produce a glittering and smooth finish. And that's not all. These fine jewels are intricately set to adorn the famous paintings by Raja Ravi Verma replicated on this saree. The price tag is a jaw dropping Rs 40 lakh.
