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 £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.

The unlocked (by Apple) 16GB black backed 3G iPhones have 400 small brilliant cut diamonds set into the steel bezel surrounding the front screen. The finished iPhone is reminiscent of a Cartier diamond and black lacquer Art Deco vanity case of the 1920s.

At a later date, if the owner wishes, the diamonds can be removed from the iPhone and set into custom made jewellery. A plain bezel can then be refitted to the original iPhone.

De Vere Diamond iPhone exclusive designs also include “Pure Ice”, “Property of a Lady” and “Wealth”, an iPhone inset with 88 white diamonds.
