A successful jewelry upstart has secured a significant domain name upgrade.

The GLD Shop has rebranded at GLD after acquiring the domain name from domain investor Richard Lau. Lau told Domain Name Wire he sold the domain name for $1 million.

GLD has a thriving business selling jewelry to clients such as Justin Bieber, Cardi B, Russell Westbrook, and Kevin Durant. It also has collaborations with the NFL, MLB, NBA, NCAA, and Marvel.

Based on records, it appears the switchover happened in the past ten days.

GLD is a play on the word gold. It also happens to be the ticker of a gold exchange-traded fund.
