The Worlds Most Expensive Abaya: Love it or Shove it?

Designed by British couture designer Bruce Oldfield, the abaya features 4,668 diamonds and 359.7 grams of white gold. Valued at $350,000 the abaya was sold in the Gulf and the money was donated to the Islamic Relief charity. I love the abaya, but have actually seen nicer ones for far cheaper, still at least the money went to a good cause. But what do you think? Should the hijab be taken to these extremes of luxury? After all, whats really wrong with somebody spending from the money that they have on things like this as long as they fulfill their religious obligations first? I'm in two minds on this one, but I don't think I could resist such lovely attire if someone just gave it to me :D
