Kim Kardashian is celebrating her October birthday a bit early this year.
The beauty mogul, 40, showed off a new opal and diamond grill on her bottom row of teeth on Instagram Wednesday.
“New opal birthstone grill alert,” she captioned the photo.
While some commenters couldn’t believe Kardashian would spend her money on putting a whole row of precious stones in her mouth, others were jealous of the look — including “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Dolores Catania.
“I think I want this,” Catania commented on Kim’s post.
Ajay Anand, CEO of Rare Carat, estimates the new grill to be a pricey — and ill-advised — piece.
“If these are genuine opal, we can estimate them to go for about $100 to $200 each,” he told Page Six Style. “The pavé diamonds likely total around $300 and the custom grill we’d estimate at around $3,000,” he added — making the total piece worth around $5,000.
The bigger issue? Opals are a weak stone, making them a poor choice for a mouthpiece. “Their column structure is quite fragile, which is not a great combination with acidic saliva,” Anand said.
