Rihanna’s relationship with her on and off beau Chris Brown always hogs the limelight. Lately we were hearing of trouble in paradise, but RiRi’s gift to her man for his 24th birthday would put those rumors to rest. She has booked a 2009 Mercedes-Benz SLR Stirling Moss and has had personalized details added like his initials on the red leather seats. The bill adds up to a whopping £700,000. If that doesn’t make your man happy, I don’t know what will. But Rihanna isn’t the only one spending the big bucks. Chris Brown had also splurged $65,000 on a pair of Neil Lane chandelier earrings for his girlfriend. But now it seems like cheap change in comparison. He better think of something soon. He could get a pointer or two from Jay Z.

The company already has two stores in Dubai and two in Turkey and the business has been quite good. Now, Indians who want to add a touch of bling to their prized possessions would not have to seek out foreign firms. Their most popular product quite unsurprisingly is the Apple iPhone and their gold plated version retails for Rs. 6 lakhs.
