Buy A Gold-Plated Donald Trump iPhone For $151,000
Are you thinking of a gift to give someone that has almost everything? This year, one option is an iPhone 7 encased in solid gold, encrusted with diamonds and bearing the face of the US President-elect Donald Trump.
A Gold-Plated Donald Trump iPhone For $151,000
“There are very wealthy, high-net-worth individuals all over the world and sometimes its very difficult to buy gifts for them because they have everything,” said Frank Fernando, Goldgenie’s managing director.
According to KTLA, the price of this gold-plated Trump iPhone 7 is around $151,000. It is just one example of the mind-blowing bling sold by Goldgenie, a store in the United Arab Emirates where the super rich do their shopping. All the stores of Fernando in Sharjah, a city near Dubai, are either solid gold, gold plated or diamond encrusted. But the idea for the golden Trump Apple iPhone came from a customer only recently.
So far, there are 10 of those 1 percenters who have already taken the holiday plunge and forked over the six figures for the Trump iPhone, CNN Money reported. The first customer is a Chinese woman who specifically requested the pimped-out version of Apple’s flagship gadget.
The Chinese Woman And The Gold-Plated Trump iPhone
As stated by Fortune, the gold-plated Donald Trump iPhone came into existence after a Chinese woman walked into a Goldgenie store located in Sharjah, UAE. Sharjah is a United Arab Emirates city on the Persian Gulf. Traditionally more conservative than its southern neighbor, Dubai, Sharjah is widely considered the nation’s cultural capital.
The Chinese woman asked for a device with the president-elect's face, Fernando told CNN Money. The woman hoped to give the iPhone to Trump after his inauguration next month, Fernando added. "If they do, the phone would fit well with the famously golden decor at Trump’s penthouse apartment in New York City. Since selling that first Trump iPhone, Goldgenie has received a further nine orders for gold-plated ones bearing his face."
Is Trump Willing To Buy The iPhone?
No word on whether Trump himself is one of those customers, according to Market Watch. But, considering his deep fondness for all things gold and, of course, his own brand face on the iPhone itself, it wouldn’t be surprising to see the president-elect fire off a few over-the-top tweets endorsing and recommending these mobile devices.
As of now, we still have to wait for further reports whether Trump will avail this highly anticipated iPhone. I am sure Goldgenie or Fernando will make an announcement regarding it. Before we know it, let as first know what Goldgenie is as a company.
