This Grungy Chrome Hearts Ice Cream Scoop Costs Nearly $3,000
Chrome Hearts has launched household items that ironically cost more than a month or two’s rent. Following the lead of other luxury brands like Louis Vuitton and Gucci – which released a $2,890 mini speaker and a $10,000 Xbox respectively – the grungy fashion label has introduced a branded ice cream scoop , which you can pick up for a reasonable price of $2,750.
Crafted entirely of .925 sterling silver, the serving device features Chrome Hearts’ signature cross and dagger designs on its scoop and handle. “CHROME HEARTS” is engraved on the side of the handle, while the bottom of the ice cream scoop takes on a floral shape. Weighing 15 ounces and measuring just seven inches long, the household items are quite small, which perhaps hinders its intended use. The ice cream scoop is also relatively simple, especially for something that costs almost $3,000 – but it is Chrome Hearts, after all.
Why so expensive? — If you’re unfamiliar with the LA luxury brand, you can refer to the iconic outfits worn by Guns N’ Roses and Cher to familiarize yourself. Since the 80s, Chrome Hearts have outfitted the biggest rock ‘n’ rollers in their punk styles, and lately Travis Scott, Bella Hadid, Jay-Z and Dua Lipa have all been seen wearing the brand on a regular basis.
Like other luxury brands, Chrome Hearts doesn’t really specialize in loungewear: its products may be high-quality, but buying them is more about flexing what you can afford. The brand’s sterling silver scooper will probably act more as a conversation starter than an actual serving utensil – and I for one almost always dig into pints with just a spoon.
Still, Chrome Hearts knows a thing or two about design. Last year, the brand teamed up with Drake to create a custom Rolls-Royce Cullinan with quilted leather upholstery, a cross-rolling hood ornament and rims engraved with the words “F*ck You” – a phrase which unfortunately does not appear on the ice cream scoop (and is only implied by its price).
Hot scoop summer — With the warm weather coming, candle ice cream lovers will want to secure the ultimate serving device, now available from the Chrome Hearts website. Shoppers should beware that the $2,750 silver scooper is a final sale — so be sure it’s truly something your (chrome) heart desires.
