9 Gianni Versace’s Barocco Pet Bowl: $754
Most dogs are content to eat their dinner out of any old bowl, or even the floor. Dogs aren't that picky. But if you happen to have a dog with a taste for fine dining, you might want to ditch your plastic or ceramic bowl in favor of a designer Versace pet bowl.
Versace has designed a fancy porcelain feeding bowl with 22-carat gold leaf edges and golden and black swirls in Barocco design around the edges. If you plan on buying your dog this bowl be prepared to spend a lucrative $754 dollars, and you might want to serve them filet mignon instead of Kibbles 'n Bits.
8 Gold-Thread Mattress: $1-3,000
The Italian company, Magniflex, created the Gold Mattress, which is, as it sounds, a handmade mattress made entirely out of gold. The mattress is covered in 22-karat gold threads and can cost anywhere from $24-30k, depending on the size and custom fit. But now the company has begun to make these special mattresses for your pets!
They're much cheaper given the smaller scale. Generally the pet mattresses are $1-3 thousand, but obviously, this is still a lucrative purchase for your pet. If you want your dog to sleep on a bed of pure gold and show your pet some appreciation then this is the perfect way to do just that.
