This guy transformed his AirPods into an 18-karat gold AirGolds [Video]

AirPods have been a very expensive Apple product that may some people cannot offer, however, it delivers many features to Apple users and sound experience that you may not find in any earphones product. Today a jeweler expert  Pablo Cimadevila take his regular AirPods and turning them into 18-karat gold versions.

AirGolds, as he’s calling them, are not for sale.

Check out the video:
“The idea of ​​turning AirPods into gold is inspired by the ‘Think Different’ campaign, the advertising slogan Apple used from 1997 to 2002,” the author wrote. “The slogan has been widely taken as a response to IBM’s slogan ‘Think’. It was used in a television advertisement, several print advertisements and several TV promos for Apple products.”

 I’ve always been fascinated with ultra-precise manual work. To me, this video is like watching an artisan or an extremely skilled watchsmith perform their thing. Keep in mind that Pablo had to deconstruct his AirPods, then apply the ancient lost-wax casting process before coating them in gold and putting them together again — all without breaking the miniature earbuds.

According to Larry Medugorac:
After the alloy solidifies cooling, he then put the whole thing into a water solution where the plaster ring dissolves and nothing is left but the casting. The casting now needs to be separated from the runners and sprue to be hand finished, reassembled and demo’ed by the creative and skillful artist he is.

 What do you think ? Would you purchase it ?
