Say hello to the world’s first diamond-encrusted credit card. No this isn’t a joke, this is the Royale Mastercard; the card that will get you any transaction regardless of size and amount on credit, “preferential access to the Burj Al Arab Hotel”, “special yacht charter deals” and a personal manager. And your key to the heavens comes with a solitaire diamond smack in the middle of it, obviously.

Royale Mastercard

I’m intrigued; the medium of exchange has become the object of desire (and status) in itself. A prelude to the gold leaf dollar bill?
