If you're in the market for a gold-plated, diamond-crusted iPhone with Donald Trump’s face on it, a store in the United Arab Emirates can help you.

Goldgenie specializes in gold-plated, well, everything, and when a Chinese woman requested the item last month, a new product was born, according to CNN Money. Since then, nine more of the phones have been sold for $151,000 each.

 

 

“There are very wealthy, high-net-worth individuals all over the world and sometimes it’s very difficult to buy gifts for them because they have everything,” Goldgenie Managing Director Frank Fernando told CNN Money.

The store, which started in London in 1989, plans to expand into Qatar and Saudi Arabia next year.

Store employees have even taken their gold plating machine to customers’ homes to cover surfaces there, including entire bathrooms, Fortune reported. Other items offered by Goldgenie include gold-plated include bicycles, which sell for $350,000. But not all items are plated with gold: Some are solid gold.

The president-elect is a big fan of gold, with many parts of his Trump Tower penthouse in New York City awash in it, according to CNN Money.

Rumor has it that one of the buyers may be planning to give the gold phone to Trump to mark his inauguration next month.
