Aurentum's 24 carat gold sheesha costs $1 million.
The most expensive things in the world can sometimes make your jaw drop. Like what could possibly make a sheesha worth a million dollars?
The answer to that question lies in dissecting Swiss-based Aurentum’s latest—a 24 carat gold sheesha.
With 18 carat gold forming the base, this uber-royal contraption finds its essence in a murano glass pot, which is covered with silver.
The first touch of bling? A designer artwork on the pot courtesy Coleo, all sculpted out of 20 carat gold. The gold theme continues in 24 carat, further decorating the silver plated wind protection cover.
And while the tubes look very rich, all covered in Venetian velvet, the silver and rhodium on the mouthpiece may easily go unnoticed.
The bubbling water is encased with a ceramic structure, boasting of a platinum scarab embellished in diamonds and rubies. This design is replicated over the sheesha, with a total of four small and four big scarabs in platinum, embellished with eight diamonds (totaling 0.36 ct) and four rubies.
All in all, what started off as a very simple idea—take tradition, give it a contemporary twist and package it luxuriously—has now evolved into a record breaking feat.
The hookah can easily double up as a piece of art, and might as well be insured given it costs a $1 million.
