O Christmas tree

Image 1 of 11


The $11 million Christmas tree, standing at 13 meters tall and decorated with necklaces, watches, and bracelets with more than 180 diamonds, pearls, emeralds, sapphires, and other precious stones, stands in the lobby of the Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi on Dec. 16. The Emirates Palace, a high-end hotel in the United Arab Emirates, has issued an apology for its over-the-top bejeweled conifer just a few days after it was boasting about having the world's most expensive Christmas tree.
