A New Gilded Age Christmas


A company called Gilded Age Greetings is creating Christmas cards for the New Gilded Age:

Just when you thought Christmas couldn’t get any more expensive… a card company has started making greeting cards decorated with pricey jewels.

The luxury company are producing bespoke Christmas cards which take over a month to create, are decorated with rubies and cost up to $10,000 (£6,395).

Card company Gilded Age Greetings, based in Florida and New Jersey, USA pride themselves on their luxury cards, which are handmade with designs painted on calfskin vellum- a type of medieval parchment.

A spokesperson from Gilded Age Greetings said: ‘Our most expensive cards have been custom commissions, which are original works of art and one of a kinds.

‘We use gemstone accents and real gold leaf or platinum gilding.’

I know we don’t want to believe this, but the company is real enough. And it has been promoted by the website of New Gilded Age taste purveyor Martha Stewart.
