French hi-fi spe­cial­ist Fo­cal has joined forces with mas­ter jew­eller Mai­son Tournaire to pro­duce the most ex­pen­sive head­phones in the world – the $120,000 Utopia by Tournaire.

Fa­ther and son Philippe and Mathieu Tournaire were tasked with cre­at­ing a be­spoke de­sign for Fo­cal based on the mark of the Tril­ogy - the sym­bol of the Tournaire jewellers - which rep­re­sents the three stages of life: the past, present and fu­ture. They came up with a de­sign us­ing 18-carat gold mounted with six carats of di­a­monds.

"Utopia by Tournaire is the fruit of a unique part­ner­ship - the per­fect sym­bio­sis of Fo­cal, a man­u­fac­turer of high-fidelity speaker driv­ers and loud­speak­ers for more than 35 years, and Tournaire, a jew­eller renowned for its sym­bolic and atyp­i­cal jew­ellery,” said Se­bastien Du­mas, Fo­cal brand and com­mu­ni­ca­tion direc­tor.

A por­tion of the prof­its from the sales of the Utopia by Tournaire head­phones will be donated to the P’tit Louis as­so­ci­a­tion, ded­i­cated to sav­ing eight-year-old Louis Biscini who suf­fers from a rare de­gen­er­a­tive disease.
