Pure Gold has created nothing else than a gold item, and not just any, but three kilo Gold Jacket (that 6.6 pounds). This 22 karat gold jacket which is designed in Bahrain before being imported to the UAE, is exclusively available from the Gold Souq outlet in Dubai. It is worth Dh540.000.
Marwan Yafe, the sales manager at Al Romaizan Jewellery, Gold Souq, said that of the two units that were created, one has already been sold to a Saudi customer. He added that the price of a full jacket could soar to a million dirhams as well. The Gold Jackets are apparently focused on the rich Indians and Arab customers who have traditionally loved splurging on the yellow metal.
Interested buyers have to make an initial advance of Dh20,000 to order the precious jacket. The remainder can be paid after delivery. If 3 kilo of gold is not enough for you, the jewellery brand is willing to craft million-dirham 6kg jackets as well. Pure Gold have previously created gold blouses for ladies. There were three blouses made in 2010, and all of them have since been sold out. Each blouse weighed 2.5 kilos ( 5.5 pounds) of pure gold.
