Don’t know what kind of tree you’re going to put up for Christmas this year? No problem, how about a pure gold Christmas tree with famous Disney characters like Mickey Mouse and Tink?
In downtown Tokyo, a jewelry store, has pure gold revolving tree in Disney characters made of 88 pounds of pure gold, standing about 8 feet high and 3 feet in diameter.
Decorated with pure gold-plate silhouette cutouts of 50 popular Disney characters and draped with ribbons made of gold leaf.
How much? it’s only $4.2 million (350 million yen).
It is the ornaments that make it unique and special, Tomoko Ishibashi, in the marketing department of Tanaka Kikinzoku Jewelry, which runs the Ginza Tanaka jewelry store says,
Right now gold is over 4,400 yen per gram. We used pure gold and had an expert craftsman form each Disney character by hand, which took 10 craftsmen two months to complete.
This is one serious Christmas tree and I’ve got $20 saved so far hahahaha.
