World’s Most Expensive iPhone 6 Features 6,128 Diamonds, Including a 51.29-Carat Fancy-Cut Gem in the Shape of the Apple Logo
Hot on the heels of Apple’s introduction of the new iPhone 6, London designer Alexander Amosu has introduced an 18-karat gold version glittering with 6,127 brilliant-cut accent diamonds and punctuated by a 51.29-carat fancy-cut diamond in the shape of the iconic Apple logo. The price tag for what’s being touted as the world’s most expensive iPhone 6 is $2.76 million.
Named the “Amosu Call of Diamond iPhone 6,” the device takes more than two months to complete because every one of the VVS1-clarity diamonds is painstakingly set by hand, according to Amosu. The diamonds completely cover the phone back, as well as all four side bezels.
The 18-karat gold case weighs about 85 grams (3 ounces) and the back panel may be engraved with the name of the customer or the name of a business.
For those looking for a more modestly priced version of Amosu’s blingy iPhone 6, the designer offers a 24-karat yellow or rose gold-plated version (with no diamonds) for about $3,900.
Last Tuesday, Apple rocked the world with its introductions of the iPhone 6, Apple Watch and a new mobile payment system called Apple Pay.
Amosu is hardly a newcomer to the world of luxury tech. He previously made headlines with his diamond-encrusted iPhone 2, which was priced at $144,000, and the world’s most expensive Blackberry handset, which sold for $195,000, according to the Mirror.
