DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, March 13 (UPI) -- Diamonds are a girl's best friend, and they're the friends of well-heeled holders of the Dubai First Royale Black MasterCard.

Targeted at invitation-only clients in the Middle East and North Africa, the no-limit card is bordered by a golden metallic border and embedded with a certified diamond, the New York Post reported.

"The MENA region has one of the highest numbers of high net worth individuals in the world," said Ibrahim Al Ansari, spokesman for Dubai First Royale, headquartered in the United Arab Emirates.

The flashy diamond on the card isn't the only perk for cardholders. Benefits include having any transaction processed regardless of size, preferential access to the Burj al-Arab Hotel in Dubai and special deals on yachts.
