How much do you really love your pet dog? Enough to buy it the world’s first 24K gold jacket encrusted with Swarovski crystals and black diamonds? It’s “only” $137,000 and it’s armored, meaning it will protect your pooch from bites and even knife slashes.
The world’s most expensive dog jacket is the result of a collaboration between Doggy Armour and VeryFirstTo. The lavish canine garment is made of “Golden Textile” 24K gold Nano coated fabrics, which apparently “has the authentic values of gold itself and embraces 99.99% gold that is nano-structured”. Clients also have the option to have the jacket decorated with either 20 Swarovski crystals, or 20 black diamonds.
But if the “wow” factor of this lavish doggy jacket isn’t enough, maybe its protective features will convince you that this thing is worth the asking price of $137,000.
According to the VeryFirstTo website, the super-lightweight garment is enough to protect your pooch from bites or even knife wounds. Pure gold is not the toughest material in the world, but this nano-fabric is apparently 15 times tougher than steel and 8 times tougher than Kevlar.
“Thanks to Doggy Armour your precious pooch will both be well protected and resplendent in glittering gold. You’ll never see a more golden Labrador, dashing Dachshund, cavalier King Charles Spaniel, or pompous Pomeranian,” VeryFirstTo founder Marcel Knobil said.
As you’d expect, the $137,000 price tag of this 24K gold dog jacket also includes a bespoke tailoring service to ensure a ‘best in show’ fit.
So if you wanted to get your pooch something special and luxurious for its birthday, this jacket fits the bill.
