    In total the deluxe calendar, made by Belgian company Octagon Blue GCV, weighs in at a whopping 81 carats.

    The 1.7 million pound price tag includes the design of an exclusive piece of jewellery based on the customers' wishes by the renowned jewellery studio Biegel, in Frankfurt.

    However, the staggering amount is not inclusive of VAT.

    Octagon Blue GCV director Oscar Brethouwer said: 'This is a very special piece which is truly stunning.

    'We've had several celebrities enquire about it and it's not difficult to see why it has generated so much interest.

    'We had 50 expert staff working 20 hour days to create it in time for Christmas.

    'We're very pleased with the calendar and I'm sure it will make someone very happy this Christmas.'

    The calendar is also available for advertising purposes and money raised will be donated to charity, along with some of the price tag.
