On the occasion of Eid (which was last month) – the most holy of occasions for all believers of Islam , Damas launched their limited edition of gold plated gadgets in the Middle East. The love for bling that is prevalent across the globe began from the middle east and the legendary appetites of the Arabs for the precious yellow metal.
There have been several such offerings in the last few years, including those of dubious distinction. However Damas is a well known company – a fact that is immensely important while purchasing gold. Its not just bling that the Sheikhs purchase gold bullion for. It has remained one of the safest investments throughout history and has had the distinction of providing some fantastic returns in the last few years.
These limited edition gadgets from Damas which include iPhones, iPads and even the Blackberry Bold are a strictly limited edition of no more than 250 units each. Each device comes individually numbered and would be an excellent collectible.
The limited edition gold-plated iPhone 4 costs Dhs 13,495 ($3,600), the iPad 2 is Dhs 19,995 ($5,400) and the Blackberry Bold 9780 is Dhs 7,495 ($ 2,000). More details from Damas Jewellery.
