What makes the tree highly valued are its jewelry decorations. The tree has a total of 181 diamonds, emeralds, pearls, sapphires and other precious stones. The bracelets, necklaces and watches which adorn the world's most expensive Christmas tree are provided by the Style Gallery.
Hans Olbertz, general manager of the hotel, said, "The tree itself is about $10,000. The jewelry has a value of over $11 million. I think 11.4m, 11.5m." He added that the hotel would apply to the Guinness Book of World Records to find out if its tree is the most expensive ever.

5Electronic Christmas Tree (Belgium)
The enormous Christmas "tree" has been unveiled at the center of Brussels, though some people are displeased with the city's modern take on a holiday tradition. Created by the French collective 1024 Architecture, the "Abies Electronicus" is an 82-foot steel-ribbed installation that replaces the real pine tree typically on display at the city's central square. Every night, the structure comes to life with a light and sound show, replete with shimmering lights, glowing cubes, and a mix of both holiday and industrial music. Also, unlike traditional trees, visitors can actually climb to the top of the Abies Electronicus for a panoramic view of the city.
Still, some citizens are not pleased with the structure, preferring a traditional tree.
