The shoes with the brown dress photo could be metallic leather or satine. Those aren't topaz and diamond encrusted like the article says. If I had real ones, I'd put them in my bedroom and play with them, not wear them if I had them! Maybe she only wears them for her husband at night? javascript:emoticon(':P&#39

I like Queen Rania, but I mostly like that she was a commoner, educated and had a Real Job in the corporate world prior to marrying her prince. You would think her past experience would make her more aware of regular people, marketing and selling herself and her ideas, but she does seem completely clueless about public perception!

There's a pic on page 11.
We dont know if the shoes Rania's wearing in the picture are the gold shoes we've been talking about. If the story is true, I dont expect her to flaunt them in public.

This almost sounds like an exaggerated story planted to make the Jordanian royal family look bad. It's too outrageous. Story is 2 years ago. Has anyone actually seen the shoes?
Knowing her extravagant expenses, I would not be surprised if she has those Gold shoes. As it was mentioned before, QR ordered expensive silverware and several wristwatches that were stolen in Copenhagen..

Read here about what was stolen

Someone on this board already posted a pic of a watch and one spoon

NB:

The value of the stolen things is DKK 5 million (673,000 euros), among which DKK 2.8 million (376,000 euros) for the silverware

1 EUR = 1.23190 USD
1 USD = 0.811754 EUR

(to help you convert the value of the stolen things into USD after you read the article)

do you mean two million dollars? That figure sounds a bit exaggerated.
AAPImage says the value of the stolen times is $129,000.

Hundreds of exclusive watches and about 1,000 pieces of silver cutlery commissioned by Jordan's Queen Rania, similar to these shown, were stolen from famed Danish silversmith Georg Jensen police said Tuesday, June 29, 2004. The cutlery engraved with crowns, inscriptions and the Jordanian royal family's monogram was worth about US $ 129,000. The theft was discovered when staff opened the shop Monday June 28, 2004.

You posted the same thing twice. I only got a chance to look at your previous post after I posted mine. The links of the pictures posted on the last page arent working, i&#39;ve checked them several times.

I don’t know why Rania needs silverware for &#036;772,000, she doesn’t know how to use it. As refugee she use to eat with her fingers.

Why doesn&#39;t someone in Jordan grab those gold shoes and smack Q Rania upside her head? Jordan has to beg from all over the globe to survive and this woman is buying gold shoes and luxury flatware with the people&#39;s money. Make sure the people&#39;s basic needs have been met before you spend like a confounded jackass&#33;

Royals are like that, they want to be noticed, praised and respected and they have the pride to buy every expensive thing&#33;
I saw her pictures when she was a princess, she was so shy, not that fancy and lovely too, but now....&#33;

Jordanians can&#39;t do anything, they are majesties and above everyone&#33;

I take it you&#39;re comparing Rania&#39;s spending habits to Marie Antoinette&#39;s. The latter was far more extravagant given the time and the condition of the lower class in France. Besides, most historians agree that Marie Antoinette was more of a scapegoat rather than the root of her nations&#39; problems.
Nevertheless, Rania&#39;s habits are a cause of concern, especially given her more &#39;frugal&#39; lifestyle before she married Abdullah and even as a princess. Still, its not very likely she&#39;ll have her head cut off for that.

The total value of the stolen goods is estimated at five million
Danish kroner (627.000 euros), of which about 2 million are
silverware.
What in the world would Rania do with silverware this expensive anyways?

If I were Rania, I would not only be embarassed by my frivolous and ridiculous overspending and extravagance, I would also be deeply ashamed that I was so superficial and greedy to think/believe that silverware this expensive was a "good buy" when the people of my own country barely have enough food to eat, let alone to sit down at such an extravagantly laid out table.

What&#39;s next? &#036;4 million&#39;s worth of wine goblets and water glasses? Followed by &#036;8 million&#39;s worth of specially-designed fine china?



The more I read of Rania&#39;s lavishness, the more certain I become that her priorities are severely in need of restructuring. Whoever suggested above that someone should smack Rania with her gold shoes is onto a good idea. But of course she can&#39;t be the only one to blame: Someone in the Jordanian royal court approved the purchase of the silverware and didn&#39;t try to talk some sense into Rania and that person needs their head checked, too.

I don&#39;t care how rich you are or who you are, or who your VIP guests sitting around the dining room table are ... &#036;2 million for silverware? I think that the true (and sincere) leaders and revolutionaries in this world would be more impressed if that money were put towards social programs for Jordanian people rather than some warped notion of "keeping up with the Joneses." I can&#39;t see Nelson Mandela going on and on about the pretty silverware at Abdullah and Rania&#39;s palace rather than the good works they are doing to improve the lives of their people.

I think the 2 million was in DKK and not Euros, or even USD.

As I posted earlier:

The value of the stolen things is DKK 5 million (673,000 euros), among which DKK 2.8 million (376,000 euros) for the silverware

1 EUR = 1.23190 USD
1 USD = 0.811754 EUR

(to help you convert the value of the stolen things into USD after you read the article through this link: http://www.cphpost.dk/get/79613.html )



So, the silverware costs almost 1/2 million USD:
376,000.00 Euro = 462,049.00 USD

No need to be angy, I was just subtedly pointing out to Genevieve that she may have incorrectly read the post. :flower:

No need to be angry. I&#39;m sorry that I did not notice your conversion earlier. But is half a million dollars worth of silverware any more justifiable considering the economic climate/situation in Jordan?
