Just like you can upgrade diamond gear with Netherite, you could be able to upgrade gold gear with Lapis Lazuli.
By doing so, it would be guaranteed for the item to get good enchantments (some higher than the current enchantment limits, maybe), however, you wouldn't be able to transfer those to other items (they would be bound to the Lazuli embedded item).
This would add a brand new use for Lapis Lazuli, a second use for the smithing table, and the player would make the player choose: "do I want stronger gear or do I want amazing enchantments?"
The counter balance to the enchantments would be the gold itself, as it's not very durable. Please tell me what you think in the comments!
