LOS ANGELES (AP) — Model Candice Swanepoel will have $10 million in jewels on her chest when she appears on the “Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show” this December.

Each year, a model gets to wear a “Fantasy Bra” made of jewels on the special, which features some of the company’s most outrageous designs on display for holiday shoppers.

This bra and the matching belt are covered in 4,200 precious stones, including rubies, diamonds and yellow sapphires.

A 52-carat pear-shaped ruby hangs from the middle.

The “Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show” airs Dec. 10 on CBS.
