Prince Abdul Malik’s Gold and Emeralds Wedding

by Joelle

 

All that glitters may not be gold, but when it’s all made of gold, everything glitters. And there was definitely no shortage of gold at the wedding of Brunei’s crown prince, Abdul Malik, on Sunday — including on him and his bride.

According to a report in the International Business Times, the 31-year-old heir and his wife-to-be — 22-year-old former systems-data analyst Dayangku Raabi’atul ‘Adawiyyah Pengiran Haji Bolkiah — wore matching gold outfits adorned with precious stones. The valuable metal was also woven into the lace of the bride’s veil, and the tiara on her head was made of diamonds and studded with six emeralds.

There were three more emeralds on the main pendant of her diamond necklace, with several more on either side, and the Christian Louboutin shoes below her solid gold ankle bracelet were studded with Swarovski crystals as well. Even the bouquet she carried was made of gemstones instead of flowers.

But the sheer extravagance of the 10-day wedding ceremony that began on April 5 is not surprising when you consider that Malik’s father, the Sultan of Brunei, is one of the richest men in the world. Malik is the sixth of the Sultan’s children with his current wife and second in line for the throne.
