In India in mid-2011, the first car was made of gold! Thirty goldsmiths took part in making this one of a kind and interesting gold car. India’s goldsmiths made this “jewel” in celebration of 5,000 years of traditional jewellery making in India. In their making and decorating the unique car of gold, silver and precious stones, the goldsmiths used 80 kg of 22-carrat gold and 15 kg of silver as well as 10,000 pieces of precious stones. The gold car was not made for sale, but if sold, its value would reach some 4.6 million dollars. The purpose of making a car of gold and silver was to show the world the knowledge and skills of India’s goldsmiths as jewellery makers.
