The $8 million iPhone 4 Diamond Rose Edition is the world’s most expensive phone
If Tony Sage is the client and Stuart Hughes is the designer cum maker, then undoubtedly the outcome has to be the world’s most expensive phone. Exclusively made by Stuart, the iPhone 4 Diamond Rose Edition flaunts a tag of £5 million ($8,020,000). Tony, who is renowned in the gold mining industry and also the sole owner of Perth’s A-league soccer team, will certainly not settle for anything inexpensive. And since we have been following a range of most expensive cell phones, it’s simple to understand that the boost in the price tag is directly related to the increase in the number of diamonds and other precious stones metals. The iPhone 4 Diamond Rose Edition sports a rose gold bezel caked with 500 diamonds (100 ct) on front and 53 diamonds on the apple logo on the rear. Here the main navigation button comprises of a 7.4ct pink diamond which is set in platinum. However there is an option of swapping the pink diamond with an 8ct single cut diamond.
A 7 kg chest made out of single block of Imperial Pink granite and lined with Nubuck leather holds this ostentatious device. Only two such 32GB handsets will be made to preserve its exclusivity.
