Since the dawn of time, mankind has been drawn to the shimmer of gold. Even as we’ve built advanced societies on the platform of technology and science, gold has still managed to maintain its status as a symbol of wealth and beauty.

 

The uses of gold are seen far and wide. Gold can be found everywhere. In smartphones, Dental work, and uses as a symbol of marriage around the world. Gold forms the basis of most modern economies. Many people around the world have caught gold fever, inventing some of the strangest new uses for this precious metal. Here are some of the most outlandish.

 

Goldschlager

Across the country, men and women dress up their drinks with a splash of Goldschlager, the cinnamon flavored alcohol with flecks of gold floating inside.

The Gold Facial

Some of the world’s swankiest spas will offer a 24K-gold facial to customers willing to spend a pretty penny to achieve a light glow and softer texture to their skin. Users swear by it, but only if you’re willing to commit to several treatments.

Gold Cigars

When smoking the best tobacco in the world isn’t  enough, there’s a gold-wrapped cigar so you can literally watch your money go up in smoke.

 

Gold Credit Card

One bank in Kazakhstan offers a credit card that’s made of solid gold. It’s the one credit card that’s guaranteed to get stolen if you let it out of your sight.

The Gold Shirt

A creation that’s unique to one man, Datta Phuge, the gold shirt is exactly what it sounds like: a garment spun from pure gold. In order to ensure his safety when wearing the shirt, Phuge reportedly engaged the services of a bodyguard.

 

Gold Cars

A member of the Saudi Arabian Royal family drove a fleet of gold plated cars through the streets of London, later posing for a selfie with his pet Cheetah in his car.

 

“The gold standard” is colloquially something to live up to, however, in some cases, it seems to be taken a bit more literally. Gold has been a symbol of status for thousands of years and it’s not going to change anytime soon. Just used differently in some cases.
