The Gold Plated Violin Plays Tthe Sound of Your Wallet Emptying

Rock duo Ben Lee and Linzi Stoppard have recently come out with a 24 carat gold plated violin in ode to all their success as five time world-record holding fastest violinists.

The dynamic duo, otherwise known as 'FUSE,' with the help of British jewelry designer Theo Fennell, have created the world's very first gold plated violin. These stunning pieces of musical luxury are not only shimmering in 24 carat gold but are also encrusted with sapphires, rubies and the most luxurious of them all, diamonds. These handmade beauties took over nine months to construct and have a blend of carbon and Kevlar to countervail the weight of the gold plating.

They are the perfect gift for any violinist or classical music enthusiast if these intricate instruments weren't exclusive to FUSE and an outstanding $2 million each.
