A Modern Day King Midas – Stuart Hughes

I have always been fascinated by the tale of King Midas – everything he touched turned to Gold – and I do not think I am alone in this fascination.

Stuart Hughes has been doing some pretty remarkable things with Gold. When he got hold of the new Apple iPad, I knew the end product was going to be special.

The must have accesory of the moment, The iPad, doesn’t really need to be blinged up….but, my word! Look at this!!!


Liverpool based Stuart Hughes is the man behind some of the most exclusive, elite gadgets around. The Wi-Fi & 3G , 64GB iPad looks the absolute business here. The rear and screen are covered in 21 grams of beautiful, high polished gold. This ultimate case has been formed from one sole piece of 22 carat gold (95% pure gold, with 5% tougher alloys, meaning this work of art is robust and well protected).

Stuart’s wife, Katherine is responsible for the design and crafting of the iPad. Adding in 53 Diamonds to create the Iconic Apple logo finishes this piece off in dramatic fashion. 25.5 cts of `I’F’ Flawless diamonds, the quality is clearly obvious.

This item is of a limited edition of only 10 units to be made. As an investment, they don’t come shinier than this. And at £129,995 with all those diamonds and ALL that gold, this seems like a smart investment too.

I haven’t seen anything like this, made to this kind of standard. That is, apart from the The MacBook Air Platinum Edition, also by Stuart Hughes. Expect to see that bad boy in lussorian very soon!
