Guess The Price!




How much do you think this cup is worth?
Its white porcelain with "gold/platinum" ring and a genuine sparkling Swarovski crystal as the "diamond".

I found three Kuwait-based websites that sells it;
1. Pick Your Tag, for KWD10.000,
2. Dekkany for a discounted price of KWD8.000 (was KWD18.000), and
3. Pink Polka Dot Shop for KWD6.500

Our of curiosity, I searched some US based websites for a price and found it in Wishing Fish selling for USD14.95.... That is KWD4.000 for you ;-)
