The beauty of excess is it never stops growing. At $1500 a pop, these diamond studded business cards send one heck of a message. I wonder if you can scrape the stones off and make a piece of jewelry with them? Hmmmm…
Black Astrum is out with customized Signature Card range. Meant for high profile people across Europe, the Middle East and Asia, the Swiss metal business cards come studded with diamonds. Said to be a “highly distinctive symbol of status and wealth”, one set of the cards feature over 30 carats of diamonds.
Since its exclusively customized to a client’s specifications, the cost of making varies. However, the company states that the average selling price per card is about the £1000 ($1,500), and it is sold in sets of 25, 50 and 100 cards.
Sufian Khawaja, Black Astrum’s concept director says, “We’ve had several enquiries from American celebrities and international businessmen, however our cards are offered by invitation only, reflecting our desire to serve only the most premier individuals”. The cards were originally created as a one-off project for a wealthy Middle Eastern family.
