Losing valuables in the pool can be a worry, but unless you’re into doing some serious cannon balling you’re not too likely to lose these. And you really wouldn’t want to either, because the turtle motifs are embroidered with 24-carat gold thread, and at the tip of each drawstring is a gold aglet topped with a sparkling blue sapphire.

Unsurprisingly, these are in short supply (see what we did there?). There are only 40 pairs available.
