Forget the faux gold on the Apple iPhone 5s; solid rose gold is where it’s at. And for a mere $20,000 – $25,000 (est.), that’s exactly what you’ll get – not for the phone, but for the EarPods to go with it. Created by Apple designer Jony Ive and Mark Newson as part of the (RED) Auction 2013, the solid 18K rose gold Apple EarPods are the only solid rose gold Earpods in existence (Edition 01/01) and come fitted in a custom display case (which may or may not help you warrant their five-figure price tag). Bidding on the Apple Rose Gold EarPods takes place tomorrow, so if you want them, you’re going to have to act quick. As for whether or not you’ll survive 5 seconds on a NYC subway wearing them? That’s a whole other ballgame.
