The Apple iPhone 5 is one of those smartphones that usually stays atop nearly everybody’s wishlist. Recently, we had the pleasure of stumbling across this beautifully overhauled iPhone 5, crafted by hand by Liverpool-based Stuart Hughes. Crowned as the world’s most expensive phone, this device is an iPhone 5 with a recreated chassis. The body of the phone is chiseled from solid gold and was made completely by hand. What sets this beauty apart from the luxury overhauled phones we’ve come across before is the flawless black single deep cut black diamond embedded in it, weighing in at 26 cts! It gives a whole new meaning to the home button.
And that’s not all! The frame boasts of 600 white flawless diamonds with full gold dressing. The Apple logo, on the other hand, is solid gold with 53 flawless diamonds. In all, the case has circa 135 grams of 24ct gold and a sapphire glass ingrained in the screen! The phone was commissioned by a Chinese businessman who has been in the position of the black diamond for quite a while now—this extraordinary piece of technology and extravagant luxury costs nearly $15 million.
