Dior has released a limited edition collection of 24-carat gold temporary tattoos, meant to look like pieces jewellery.

The $120 set of Dior Grand Bal Golden Tattoos includes designs of cuffs, delicate rings and charm bracelets composed of gold leafing.

Created by Dior jewellery designer Camille Miceli, the sets were made for the brand's Christmas theme based around the idea of a 17th Century Grand Ball.

It is unknown how long the temporary tattoos, available exclusively through Nordstrom, actually last.

Dior isn't the first luxury brand to offer the novel idea of temporary tattoos, however.

Chanel launched a collection of black temporary tattoos in March last year, inspired by the intricate designs from its spring 2010 collection.

Models walked down Chanel's hay-strewn runway wearing chain and pearl body-art designs around their wrists, thighs and necks, seemingly in lieu of jewellery.

The tattoo versions were released five months later, which came in a 55-piece set, and retailed for $75.

Exclusively sold through Selfridges and at Chanel boutiques,it was the first high-end brand to sell such a product.
