EXCLUSIVE: Robb Report gets a behind-the-scenes peek at the stunning design.
It might just be one of the most opulent creations in luxury jeweller Nic Cerrone’s career.
A Sydney socialite – whose identity remains unknown – has requested the acclaimed jeweller create a bespoke 18k gold door handle, with diamonds, for her home.
The value of the handle comes in at approximately $100,000 and was made in Cerrone’s Sydney workshop by a team of skilled artisans.

Speaking exclusively to Robb Report, the master jeweller said that the creation was likely "Australia's most expensive door handle".
The jewellery house has been commissioned to design many bespoke pieces over the years, including a $3 million diamond head piece created for former Miss Universe Jennifer Hawkins to mark the launch of The Championships Doncaster Mile presented by The Star.
