Mobile phones have become, for almost the whole world, a necessary accessory; exactly because they are so used, we did expect all sorts of models to be invented and reinvented, interesting and unusual, in the eager rivalry. The mobile phone industry astounds, in fact, also through rapid development and innovative designs.
Mobile phones differ by brand, operating systems, features, colors, but also by price.
Some of the most unusual have tens and hundreds of diamonds, sapphires, and rubies. Their case is made of gold or platinum, while others have advanced technology. You don’t find them in stores, they are only on commission. The producing companies are also oriented towards the luxury segment, for those who can spend more than 5 million euros on one phone.
- iPhone 4 Diamond Rose Edition – $ 8 million
On the pink gold case of the most expensive phone in the world are inlaid 500 diamonds and the phone’s main navigator is a 7.4-carat pink diamond, with a value of £ 2 million (~ $ 3.2 million). Created in just two copies, the phone is packed in a pink imperial granite box. The phone was made by the famous British designer Stuart Hughes, at the request of a wealthy businessman from Australia.

The phone’s facade is decorated with 45.5 carats black diamonds, and the back shell is made of African blackwood 200 years old. As its performances were not enough to place it among the most expensive phones in the world, each key is cut from a polished sapphire. All of these luxurious materials are incorporated into a framework of 180 grams gold.
- Vertu Signature Cobra – $ 310,000
This phone fits in just eight hands. Created by the French designer Boucheron, the Signature Cobra is made of two diamonds, two emeralds, and 439 rubies.

- Sony Ericsson Black Diamond – $ 300,000

- iPhone Princess Plus – $ 176,400
The phone got its name from the Princess cut used for 138 of the 318 diamonds on its surface. The other 180 diamonds have a brilliant cut. In total, the phone’s set has 17.74 carats diamonds, in an 18 karat white gold case. The “Brilliants only” version was sold for $ 66,150.
