If youve ever been to the Gherkin, the vegetable shaped building on Londons skyscraper landscape, you mightve enjoyed the views of the city.

Searcys, which sits on the 40th floor of the famous glass building, is now inviting people to enjoy a Christmas themed brunch.

The folks at the company have created a Diamond and Dom Perignon brunch where you can sip on bottomless glasses of champagne and tuck into a four-course meal.

In each drink will be a single sparkling stone, one of which will be a real diamond, for one lucky guest.

The mains include bavette steak, eggs Benedict, Florentine or royal topped with organic caviar from Switzerland. The much-anticipated desserts will feature waffles with fruit compote or a chocolate ganache tart with malt ice cream and Guinness gel.

Upon arrival guests will be given a Dom Pérignon Champagne glass with a stone nestled at the bottom, it says on the Searcys website. Only one of the glasses will hold the true diamond worth £1,000.

Once guests have finished their glass of Champagne, they will be able to take their stone to the on-site diamond inspector to discover if they have the real jewel.

The lucky winner will then be announced at the end of the day.

Diamond Brunch bookings are only available on Sundays from 2 December to 23 December.

And yes, there is a dress code; Searcys discourages anyone wearing shorts, flip-flops, and sportswear, including athletic trainers.

On the website, it adds: We welcome and encourage style.

So dress and eat in style.
