kindle1What’s the best way to turn a piece of technology into an ultimate luxury item? Well, covering it in gold is always a good start. From Macs to mobile phones, designers across the world are wrapping high-end gadgets in gold for added luxury and style. And it seems Amazon’s much-loved Kindle is the latest device to be given the Midas touch. Transformed by British designer Alexander Amosu, the modest Kindle has been slipped inside a luxurious, 24-carat gold cover and given a super-sleek matte finish. Inside, the hardened gold tablet performs to the same standard as an ordinary Kindle: It’s still got great battery life, the specially developed non-glare screen, and the all-essential integrated Wifi system - but now it looks beautiful too!

One of Amazon’s best-selling products, and one of the world’s most sought after e-book readers, this latest gold version of the tablet is bound to be on a few wish-lists. Transforming any old novel into a super-luxurious hard-back, we reckon it’s the perfect accessory for any sophisticated book-worm. Not only a great way to indulge in your favourite books while you’re on the move, it also makes for a pretty unique gift if you’re looking to spoil someone with an expensive treat.

Whether you choose to have your luxury Kindle kitted out in white gold, yellow gold or rose gold, it’s a gorgeous, extravagant purchase that you’ll want to take everywhere you go.
The 24-carat Kindle’s designer also offers his customers the chance to personalize the golden tablets with world-famous Swarovski crystals, so you can choose exactly how much sparkle you want the already-indulgent Kindle to have. If you’re after a super-luxurious twist, you can also have the e-book readers engraved with a personalised message to make it even more special. And if that’s not enough, you can request a customized carry case to make sure you’re Kindle is thoroughly unique.


Designer Alexander Amosu is renowned for using precious metals and Swarovski crystals to transform the latest technology and newest gadgets into desirable luxury products. Amosu has used gold and diamonds to customise a range of high-end phones including the iPhone4, the Blackberry and the Nokia N95. Other top gadgets that have been daubed in gold by the designer have included the Apple iPad and the iPod Classic, and his diamond-encrusted products include a set of Swarovski covered headphones.

Amosu’s work has been snapped up by rich and famous customers around the world, including Peter Andre and Jermain Jackson. Chris Brown was also spotted with one of Amosu’s gold Macbooks, and Tinie Tempah recently bagged a pair of the designer’s gold Blackberries. Branching out into camera design, he recently teamed up with Maria Sharapova to create the tennis player’s endorsed diamond canon camera. He was also approached by a Russian billionaire who asked him to create the world’s most expensive iPhone back in 2010. The diamond-encrusted phone was featured on American TV show ‘World’s Most Expensive’, which also put Amosu under the spotlight for his luxury suit designs.  The full range of Amosu products now includes bespoke suits, jewellery, and accessories, as well as his famous customised gadgets.
