Jeweler Creates $139,000 Chopsticks For Actual Crazy Rich Asians
A jeweler in Gold Coast, Australia has created one of the most expensive chopsticks in the world with a selling price of $198,500 Australian dollars ($139,000).
The 18-carat gold chopsticks are created by master goldsmith Paul Amey of Erotic Jewellery Company in Australia.
“We like fine dining, especially high-end Chinese but it’s never served with the right cutlery. So in jest, I decided to make my own,” Amey told The Gold Coast Bulletin last month.
It took Amey 340 hours to create these chopsticks, which were embedded with diamonds, pearls, and ebony.
While the utensil is pleasing to look at, Amey said that the chopsticks are also functional. In addition to that, the pearl attached at the end of one of the sticks is also removable and it can be worn as a necklace.
Many people might not know this, but despite our large and loyal following which we are immensely grateful for, NextShark is still a small bootstrapped startup that runs on no outside funding or loans.
Everything you see today is built on the backs of warriors who have sacrificed opportunities to help give Asians all over the world a bigger voice.
However, we still face many trials and tribulations in our industry, from figuring out the most sustainable business model for independent media companies to facing the current COVID-19 pandemic decimating advertising revenues across the board.
We hope you consider making a contribution so we can continue to provide you with quality content that informs, educates and inspires the Asian community.
