The ultimate gold card
Luxury consumers can now buy a fully functional 18-carat diamond-studded credit card - for the princely sum of $25,000. Exhibiting at the International Jewellery and Watch Show in Abu Dhabi, US-based Aurae lifestyle showcased the gold custom designed MasterCard available to shoppers by invite only. “Launched here in November, we have been receiving great interest from customers based in UAE for our card. The people here love their luxury items and the gold card is great for making a statement,” said Christopher Scanlon, CEO at Aurae. The card performs all transactions typical of a MasterCard and the interest rate is the same as a standard card. Aurae customises card for UAE customers, with the most expensive so far costing
$10,000, said Scanlon.
