The AK-47 gets a makeover as a high-end fashion accessory.
The Fonderie 47 Cufflinks are made of metal from AK-47s and 18k rose and white gold, A Blog to Read reports. With only 20 pairs, each will cost a pretty penny: 30,000 Swiss Francs to be exact, or about $32,500.
Incorporating the material from AK-47s is both an eye-catching and philanthropic move. The Fonderie 47 line is part of a campaign to rid Africa of assault rifles, the most common of which is the AK-47. Sales will help raise funds “to be used to literally buy and destroy guns in Africa that are often used as currency,” A Blog to Read reports.
At $32,500, a pair of cufflinks can purchase and destroy 100 assault rifles. If you want to snag yourself a pair, you need to know the right people. The items will be sold exclusively through parties and special events.
