Borat’s homeland of Kazakhstan issues diamond-studded credit card

Most financial institutions are struggling left and right, but others apparently are not – such as the case with Kazkommertsbank, who has recently announced they will be issuing a diamond inlaid credit card for their richest customers.

The Diamond credit card will have a 0.02 carat diamond embedded in its center. But the $1,000 annual fee only gets you a $50,000 credit limit, a limit that is not uncommon on credit cards in the United States. The card will feature the graphic of a peacock for female cardholders and a winged horse for male cardholders. Borat would be proud.

However this is not the first credit card made of diamonds and gold. The Dubai First Royale MasterCard (pictured above) is by invite only and issued to the VIP’s of the UAE. It looks like the American Express Centurion now has serious competition.

This is actually quite absurd when you think about it.

Excess at its worst!

the amex centurion should do this too considering their annual fee is so much.

A diamond credit card and only a $50k limit?

What a joke.
