Uniqueness never goes out of style, and having a one-of-a-kind anything will always be popular, even when it comes to tea cups.

The designs on the Alma Fortune tea cups are based on tasseography -- the Middle Eastern practice of reading of a person's future from coffee grounds. Each unique design is captured in 22k gold on a porcelain cup and saucer.

Implications - Gold is the ultimate symbol of wealth and while the market may be unpredictable in current times, there are still many ultra wealthy consumers wishing to splurge. Whether it be purchasing a golden tea set or a golden toilet, the rich are still on a quest to enhance the luxury around them and opportunities exist for businesses that realize this.
