“The case of this exclusive gadget is made in the original jewellery technique, which adds volume and texture to the model,” Caviar says.

A gold-plated PlayStation 5 has gone on sale online slapped with a gargantuan price tag and coupled with crocodile skin controllers.
Luxury Russian retailer Caviar is selling the bougie machine for $500,000 (£359,000) – meaning it should at least be safe from pesky scalpers.
According to the store’s listing, the dazzling device is a “mixture of rationality and brightness, pure fine lines, and deliberate luxury”.
It adds: “Caviar jewellers could not pass by such a luxurious and very difficult to manufacture golden version of the PlayStation.”
