The world's most expensive Christmas wreath studded with more than 40 diamonds and rubies has gone on sale for nearly 3million.

Luxury launches website VeryFirstTo.com are selling the 60cm wreath for an astonishing 2,835,000.

With more than 138 carats of rubies and diamonds, the wreath was created by top Finnish floral designer Pasi Jokinen-Carter.

It also features some of the world's most exclusive flowers and leaves including helleborus, laurus, lingonberry and blueberry stems.

And as the wreath only lasts 12 days, after it wilts, the precious jewels can be turned into a bespoke piece of jewellery.

Mr Jokien-Carter's client portfolio includes royal households, select country clubs, galleries, and film and TV production houses.

He said: "I am passionate about my craft and this recent invitation to create an exclusive wreath, using natural materials and diamonds, has been an exciting and exceptional project."
