"A pair of rare diamond and emerald spectacles from an unknown Indian princely treasury will be sold at an auction in London later this month.
The lenses were placed in the Mughal-era frames around 1890, according to auction house Sotheby's.
The spectacles will be offered at auction for £1.5m-2.5m ($2m-$3.4m) each, the auction house said.
Ahead of the sale, they will be exhibited in October for the first time in Hong Kong and London."
I'll bet you can't get these at America's Best.
