Here’s another series of luxurious handsets that Vertu has come up with for its 10th anniversary this year. , the luxury handset maker has unveiled its “Rococo Constellation,” also in honor of its first decade, following the “Monogram Constellation” that did the same thing. As indicated by its name, the new collection was inspired by the French design movement of the 18th century, according to Sybarites. Having created such specimens as the $310,000 “Signature Cobra,” it’s not surprising that Vertu is a brand that isn’t afraid to celebrate itself.
To that end funnily enough these models seem subdued considering their maker and mission. On closer inspection, however, the “Sapphire Edition” of the collection features cabochon sapphire screws, as well as a center stone button. So while they are not as flashy and don’t look as rich as the previous lines they are consistent in terms of quality and command the brand’s name.
