One hundred and fifty thousand dollars is a great salary to most. To Xikar, the well-known smoking accessories brand owned by Quality Importers Trading Co., 150 grand is also the cost of the Dragons Chasing Flaming Pearl Xi, an eye-catching instrument of gems, gold and steel. Ruby-studded and razor sharp, the new cutter is featured in the December 2020 issue of Cigar Aficionado, available on newsstands December 22.
The dramatic design, made in partnership with Jacob & Co., is a high-relief rendering of two dragons competing for a pearl, which is mounted atop the cutter. And while the solid gold might get your attention at first, it’s the nearly 2,000 rubies that really bring the bling.
See the feature in Cigar Aficionado’s newest issue to discover more about the available diamonds, sapphires, gold and other rare metals and gems that could cover your newest investment.
