When we’re going for the gold (and not in an Olympic kind of way, obviously), there isn’t usually a question of need, but more of a want. That said, we completely covet and totally lust for these five gold-plated items to the point where we may actually need them!

Goldgenie have taken a typical men’s aluminum road bike and plated it with 24 karat gold, from its handlebars and spokes to its chain and derailleur. Golden glory doesn’t come cheaply, of course: this bad boy retails for $390,000.

True gamers are going to go gaga for these 24k gold-plated controllers from ColorWare, which makes playing on the Xbox one or PS4 oh so much more enjoyable.

The best part: these custom-made babies only retail for $299 a set. The worst part: there will only be a limited number of 25 made, so scoop one up while you still can.
