Bizarre Items Made of Gold for Celebrity Budgets

The millions rolling in for celebrities know no bounds. From teeth grills to golden food, celebrities spend their money on bizarre items made of gold. To feel fancier and wealthier than the rest, they can dine on edible gold, walk in gold shoes and even paint their face in gold. Here are a few of the peculiar gold items only made for celebrity budgets.

Gold Sushi

With edible flakes, celebrities wrap pieces of sushi with a fine layer of gold. They can chew on this thin 24-karat gold ribbon with no digestive issues. You can find gold sushi in the Philippines, but at nearly $3,000 a plate, celebrities are generally the only ones with the bank accounts hefty enough to fork out the dough for a dish so extravagant. It’s certainly one of the most expensive sushi dishes in the world.

Gold Facial

Naturally celebrities wish to be bathed in gold and in certain spas throughout the world, it’s entirely possible. Spa estheticians rub a thin layer of 24-karat gold over the face and let it harden. The purpose is to soften and firm the skin, as well as relax the mind as the gold is applied. While most facials at top spas run $100-200, this one is over twice as much at $500. Celebrities need deep pockets to shell out for this golden glow, especially when the gold is simply rinsed off at the end.

Gold Shoes

As recent as April 2011, gold shoes were created by designer Christopher Michael Shellis with 30 carats in diamonds and solid gold. Costing over $200,000, celebrities may want to think twice before pounding the pavement in these. Hot asphalt and dirty sidewalks will ruin that $200K quickly. They should stick to red carpets when taking these out on display.

Gold Dessert

In New York City, celebrities head to Serendipity 3 to partake in a famous golden dessert called the Grand Opulence Sundae. For a mere $1,000, the dessert includes five scoops of Madagascar vanilla bean ice cream, a 23-karat edible gold leaf, Amendei Porceleana and Chuaco chocolate pieces, candied fruit, truffles, gold dragnets, cherries and bowl of Grand Passion Cavier to mix with a spoonful of the ice cream. It’s arguably the most indulgent dessert on the planet—but if you add in the expense of the cavier on its own, it makes the thousand a celebrity would spend a little more palatable. Because celebrities carry no-limit credit cards and the Benjamins simply fall out of their wallets, spending more than $1,000 on a dessert isn’t a stretch.
The rich and famous can live large eating and wearing real gold. For the rest of us, rather than eating up our savings (literally), it’s a much better idea to get in on investing in gold.
