Although today you can buy your smartphone for less than € 250, expensive models are still very popular and sell very well. In addition to having significantly better performance, these phones often have a slightly better look. However, none of these phones is still the most expensive phone in the world. What really raises the price of the phone is the unique design. We are not talking about cases, stickers, and zircons that you can stick yourself, but about real small masterpieces made of precious metals and precious stones.
I am sure that the following devices will take your breath away, especially if you like precious stones. Get ready, we present you ten phones that can be crowned with the title of “most expensive phone in the world”, starting with the cheapest:
iPhone Princess Plus
Extremely attractive and popular with young girls. It was designed by the famous Austrian designer Peter Aloison. The name of this phone comes from the way the diamond is cut, better known as the princess cut. There are 318 diamonds on this phone, 138 of which are cut in a princess way. It contains 17.75 carats, in diamonds only. In addition, it contains 18 more cards in the form of white gold, with which it is framed. The first buyer of this phone was a certain Russian businessman, in October 2007, when this was the most expensive phone in the world. The price of the phone was $ 170,400.
The reason why the price of this phone is $ 250,000 is exclusively its mask. It is covered with eighteen-carat gold, while its exterior adapts to customer requirements – any gem can be placed on the side of the phone. You can also add animal skins, such as iguanas or pythons, to the sides of the phone. These smartphones come in as many as 11 versions. They were designed in Switzerland and created by Alessandro Saveli. This phone also has a screen made of sapphire, while the rest of the phone is made of ceramic, which does not scratch.
Black Diamond VIPN Smartphone
This phone was designed by an artist from Singapore, Jaren Go, using diamonds from the house Diamanthaus, from Switzerland. Although the look of the phone itself is not particularly attractive, it is made special by only two diamonds – a larger diamond on the outside and a smaller one on the navigation stack (joystick). It is interesting that only his wand costs more than the average mobile phone, so it is no wonder that this phone is on the list of “the most expensive phone in the world”. The total price of this model is $ 300,000.
Vertu Signature Cobra
In addition to being the most expensive phone in the world, the Vertu Signature Cobra is one of the most creatively designed phones, priced at $ 310,000. On the frame of the phone, there is a snake made of diamonds cut in the shape of a pear, the so-called pear cut diamond. It also has two large diamonds, one pear-shaped while the other is round. The snake’s eyes are made of two emeralds, while there are 439 rubies on its body. There is also a cheaper version of this phone – Signature Python, which has only rubies on it and costs “trivial” 115,000 dollars. Only 8 Venture Signature Cobra phones were made.
Gresso Luxor Las Vegas Jackpot
The Gresso company has created the most luxurious gold-plated phone in the world, the back of which has an African wood base. Only three such phones have been made, so it is not surprising that it appears as the most expensive phone in the world. Their price is an incredible million dollars. The Las Vegas Jackpot was very popular in Switzerland in 2005. It consists of 180g of gold. The phone’s keyboard consists of 17 hand-polished sapphires, valued at 32 carats. In addition, it is sprinkled with black diamonds.
Diamond Crypto Smartphone
The Diamond Crypto Smartphone is not the most beautiful-looking phone, but it is certainly the most expensive phone in the world. It is extremely secure and the information you store on it has a high degree of protection. Its value lies in 50 princess cut diamonds, which are located on the outside of the phone and whose value is 25.5 carats. The other parts are made of eighteen-carat, rose gold. Just like with the iPhone Princess Plus phone, the designer is Peter Aloison. The price of this phone is 1.3 million dollars.
GoldVish Le Million
Le Million is one of the most striking phones to date, designed by Emanuel Gita, a designer of luxury watches and jewelry. The phone first appeared on the Swiss market. It is made of 18-carat gold, which is not even visible, because it is covered with diamonds worth 120 carats. This phone entered the Guinness Book of Records as the most expensive phone in the world, which was sold at the Millionaire Fair in Cannes, in 2006, for as much as 1.3 million dollars!
iPhone 6 Amosu Call of Diamond
iPhone phones are recognizable by their logo on the back, and this phone is specific in that the logo is made up of tiny diamonds, hand-set. It also consists of another 6,000 diamonds. The phone itself is made of eighteen-carat gold, which took 2 months to make. It was designed by Alexander Amosu and is on sale at a price of 2.7 million dollars and is only in the third place on our list called “the most expensive phone in the world”.
iPhone 5 Black Diamond
In addition to the many diamonds on this iPhone, the most prized, due to its rarity, is the black diamond, worth 26 carats. The black diamond is located in place of the home button. The logo is made of 53 finely cut diamonds. The whole phone is made of gold, covered with 600 diamonds, and costs 15.3 million dollars. The process of making the phone took 2 months. The creator of this very expensive phone is Stuart Hughes, a designer of luxury items. It was from Stuart that a businessman from China, who owned a black diamond, asked to install it in the phone, exclusively for him.
Falcon SuperNova Pink Diamond iPhone 6
The most expensive phone in the world is of course the iPhone. This is a fairly compact design phone. It is not started with hundreds of diamonds, but the center of attention is taken by a huge pink diamond on the back of the phone. The whole phone is made of gold worth 24 carats. The price of the phone is 95.5 million dollars. There is also a cheaper version of this phone, which consists of platinum and blue diamond and costs “only” 48.5 million dollars.
The Pink Diamond phone was created in collaboration with Falcon. It is speculated that thanks to the deepened cooperation between these two companies, an iPhone with a sapphire screen will be created and that it will appear on the market on September 9, 2016. If you are not able to pay 95.5 million dollars for a phone like this, you can order this model with a sapphire on the back, for “only” 4.75 million.
