In today's ironic jewelry news, British designer Theo Fennel has created a pair of 18ct gold cufflinks shaped like Mahatma Gandhi's face. As if that isn't bizarre enough, the cufflinks are being sold on the designer's website for a whopping $8,000.
Pure gold Gandhi cufflinks are pretty ridiculous, especially since Gandhi was famously against all things materialistic. He once said, "It is health that is real wealth, and not pieces of gold and silver." We're guessing he would not approve of his face being gilded and then worn on the cuffs of rich businessmen.
Plus, these cufflinks are kinda freaky looking, right? But not as disturbing as the Winston Churchill cufflinks that are also sold on the jewelry designer's website. And somehow the Churchill cufflinks are already sold out. What we want to know is, who is buying these?
What do you think? Are these Gandhi cufflinks so wrong?
