In celebration of the 180th anniversary of Japanese department store chain Takashimaya, only three of these 18K gold-plated multi-tiered bento box lunch totes were produced. Fashioned by famed Japanese goldsmith Koichi Ishikawa and legendary Japanese sculptor Hoseki Okuyama, the couture lunch tote was designed to hold food delicacies such as root vegetables, sushi rolls, sashimi, and other rice and meat dishes.

If sending your 8-year-old to school with a lunchbox worth thousands of dollars makes you a little nervous, suggests the the Zojirushi Stainless Steel Lunch Jar priced at a more palatable $45.
