Certainly, the Royal wedding was a monumental event in many ways. In addition to the social media attention that it received, it is also receiving a great deal of economic interest and attention. There are many products on the market now to commemorate the event, and to allow people to cash in on the big day.
Here are examples:
The Royal iPhone
A select few can remember the Royal wedding with…The Royal iPhone. While some may think that this is a joke, Goldgenie has, indeed, launched The Royal iphone with a solid platinum rear and with VSI 8.50 ct certified diamond and sapphire bezel. As Goldgenie explains, “We have incorporated our London Assay office hallmark onto the SOLID Rose Gold rear of the Royal iPhone 4 Platinum/diamond Rim and Sapphire and logo making this not only a valuable investment but a rare collector’s item as only a Limited edition of 50 will ever be produced across our Gold Platinum and Rose gold releases. The bezel has been set with quality sapphire and diamonds similar to the late Princes Diana’s wedding ring,” says Goldgenie.
The Royal Mint Wedding Coin
The Royal Mint has joined the foray as well, creating the official Royal Wedding coin design, which has been approved by the Royal Household and the Government. This official UK coin, produced by the Royal Mint, commemorates the historic event as it shows an engraving of Will and Kate on their big day.
The Franklin Mint Doll
Not to be outdone, the Franklin Mint has produced two dolls from the big event. The Kate Middleton Royal Engagement Doll is a hand-painted, life-like portrait sculpture that reproduces the blue silk jersey dress she was wearing for their formally announced engagement. It also includes the jewelry she wore that day. The Royal Wedding Doll features an exact replica of the dress that Kate wore to the wedding, with every detail included from her tiara and jewelry to her hair style and flower arrangement.
