Fashion designers have created some pretty bizarre and unconventional items over the years, but near the top of that list has to be the Jean Paul Gaultier gold bullion bar. With the help of Dillon Gage Metals, a bullion trading company based in Dallas, the French designer has created a 1-oz., 24-karat gold bar.
This isn't your grandpa's bullion bar -- it was created for the fashion-conscious with its engraved heart wrapped with a banner featuring the designer’s name and sun rays all around. It’s being described as a “fashionable way for investors to diversify holdings and hedge against inflation.”
These bars are being trades at $1,830, which The Telegraph says is a 10 percent premium over common gold bars.
