Following the trend the Austrian designer and jeweller Peter Aloisson has rolled out the $176,400 Princess Plus iPhone and now its turn for the new Apple iPhone 3G “Kings Button” that is constructed of 18 carat yellow gold, white gold and rose gold.
The white gold line is encrusted with a total of 138 brilliant cut diamonds of the best quality. But the most prominent feature of this one-of-a-kind phone is its home button that features a rare 6.6 carat diamond.
This stunning diamond-encrusted iPhone comes for a whopping â‚¬1,790,000 (US $2,517,345). For the price, it steals the crown of the world’s most expensive iPhone.
Continental Mobiles has unveiled the world’s first iPhone set in VS1 quality diamonds and emeralds, which is a fascinating stone that possesses a pure verdant green hue !
Blending seamlessly with the 3G iPhone’s sleek curves, the handcrafted case emanates a sensual allure that is almost impossible to resist.
The 8GB and the 16GB version of the emerald and diamond studded iPhone retail for Â£2999 ($4,400) and Â£3099 ($4,600) respectively.
Diamond jewellers, De Vere’s of London have unveiled their beautiful diamond encrusted iPhone 3G, the “Angels Tears”.
This stunning Art Deco inspired Apple iPhone has been created by De Vere’s founder Philip De Vere in memory of his mother who died of cancer.
A number of examples are being sold to raise money for the research and treatment of women’s cancers. They are available for a limited time at Â£2499 (USD$4000).
“I wanted to create a damned sexy and desirable iPhone, capable of giving anyone’s thumbs an orgasm”. Philip De Vere said.
If you’ve got money to burn and the gold dipped iPhone, or the white gold iPhone were just too cheap, why not check out the Apple iPhone limited Diamond deluxe Platin Edition.
This time it’s not Goldstriker but Sayn Design that has come up with a platinum edition of the iPhone. Topping it off with diamond studded crown, Sayn has placed the dazzling cherries on the precious icing.
Coated with pure platinum, the only significant change about this gilded iPhone is that the iPhone button on the front is replaced by the Sayn Design crown.
iPhone has been a target of haute couture brands where they grab and slap it with precious stones in order to elevate its exclusivity factor. The honor of the most expensive iPhone is bagged by Amosu Ultimo Diamond but the iPhone used isn’t a 3G version. Even so, we do have a few blinged 3G iPhones like Gold & Diamond from Goldstriker, Diamond studded Olympic iPhone and Diamond-Studded iPhone 3G by Knalihs Athem.
The latter being the most expensive jeweled 3G version till date. Today we have one more company that is aiming to revive the union of gemstones with hyped 3G iPhone. Continental Mobiles, well known for its range of luxurious cell phones, has pimped the 3G 16GB white luxury iPhone with Pigeon Blood Red rubies and white diamonds. It is exclusively and intricately handcrafted. This piece of art comes from England and retails for Â£3099 (about $5,550).
Upset that the Apple iPhone is no longer exclusive enough? Then, App Store has the perfect downloadable application for you, called I Am Rich.
The program displays a red gem, has no function but to display your wealth to others through ownership, and costs $1000.
The description in iTunes reads “The red icon on your iPhone or iPod Touch always reminds you (and others when you show it to them) that you were able to afford this. It’s a work of art with no hidden function at all…”
As kottke said, “For some, the iPhone is already an obvious display of wealth and I Am Rich is commenting on that. Plus, buying more than you need as an indication of wealth is practically an American core value for a growing segment of the population.”
Unfortunately you wont be able to download it anymore. It has since been removed from the Apple Store for no reason… Though, the “I am Rich” application is one of those reasons why you have to make sure your iTunes asks for you permission to buy apps before purchasing !
