Designer jewelery has become passe in recent years. However savvy investors realise that gold holds its value best when it is in the form of a solid bar – untouched by the jewelers tools where a small percentage of the gold is lost. However that does not mean that the bars need to be boring blocks of chunky yellow metal (not that we would be complaining if we were gifted these either).
French designer Jean-Paul Gaultier is the first designer to pick up the standard gold bar as a design challenge. He has come up with a one-of-a-kind, limited-quantity collector’s piece that not only is a great investment but one that he believes will also become a piece of history. One side of the gold bar is engraved with a heart — with Gaultier’s trademark sailor stripe — amid radiating rays, and above that is a banner displaying the name Jean-Paul Gaultier.
The Jean-Paul Gaultier bar carries a slight premium because of its unique design and limited mintage. This collector’s item can be purchased from Dillon Gage Metals, the sole distributor in the United States, by calling 800-527-7034.
