10 Ridiculous Items Made of Gold

By on January 23, 2015

As one of the most valuable materials on earth, gold can be added to nearly anything to increase its value immensely.

While gold has plenty of practical applications in jewelry and other pieces of fine art, there are some items made of gold that are just downright stupid, impractical, and utterly ridiculous.

These items are the ones we’re going to focus on, because you can only look at so many sensible gold items before getting bored. These items, meanwhile, will never cease to be entertaining, especially because people actually buy them.

Here are 10 of the craziest golden items that money can buy.

#10: Tobias Wong & Ken Courtney’s Golden Pills – $425

These 24-karat gold pills are dipped in gold and then filled with gold leaf, and will cost you $425 for the set of three.

Created by Tobias Wong and Ken Courtney (aka “Ju$t Another Rich Kid” – you can’t make this stuff up), the gold capsules are sold by CITIZEN:Citizen.

These golden pills have absolutely zero medical uses, and let’s be honest, they have absolutely zero practical uses, period. There is literally no justification you could ever have for buying these utterly useless pills.

I don’t know who in their right mind would buy these for any reason whatsoever, but the only possibility I can come up with is that perhaps someone thinks these pills will truly make them feel like a million bucks – or at least $425.
