Gaultier Gold Bars

13 Jan

Let’s get this clear, this is not branded jewelry it’s a branded gold bar. Yes as in the stuff that’s valuated based on weight, instead of “how pretty it is” or “which celebrity was last spotted with it.” Ok already strange. It gets stranger when you discover Jean-Paul Gaultier has placed his logo on one-ounce 24-karot ingots of gold supplied by Dillon Gage Metals. This is beyond random and luckily Refinery 29 did some sums:

They and are selling for $1,826.33 with a $25 handling fee. Spot gold trading puts the price of one ounce of gold to be $1,660. Simply speaking, Jean-Paul Gaultier can charge $191.33 just for putting his name and logo on something.
