The World's Most Expensive Business Card

Think you’ve got this life thing cracked? Think again. Have you received the magical invitation from Black Astrum asking you to sign up for its diamond encrusted business cards? No, no you haven’t. Come on, work harder.

A specialist in diamond-based design, Black Astrum is actively targeting what they call ‘ultra-high net worth individuals across Europe, the Middle East and Asia’ as evidenced by its invitation-only policy.

The bespoke cards are made from a precision cast acrylic fabricated in Switzerland and are specially coated to be scratch and chemical resistant which helps to maintain their glossy finish.

Due to each design’s unique specifications costs will fluctuate, but the average selling price is around £1,000 ($1,534) for each card (yes, you read that correctly) and a set of 30 cards will contain around 30 carats.

With our invitation lost somewhere we can’t be sure how you’ll be asked, but we’re guessing it’ll be something grander than a mundane ping in your inbox.

So, a sweet grand for one – ONE! – business card: utterly amazing or an elaborate folly? Let us know your thoughts below. Oh, and if you have received an invitation, make yourselves known, yeah? Maybe we can meet up for a boozy lunch one day? No? Oh.
