Stuart Hughes, the Liverpudlian purveyor of eye-wateringly expensive gadgets, has been at it again.
In May he produced a golden iPad worth £130,000, and before that he knocked out a gold Nintendo Wii which cost £300,000. Indeed, a year ago he produced a gold and diamond studded iPhone 3GS with a £2 million price tag.
Now he’s gone and bettered that with the latest generation iPhone, smothering it in £5 million worth of diamonds including two massive swappable stones which sit on the home button. One is a 7.4 carat pink diamond, the other an 8 carat single cut flawless diamond.
Diamonds are also embedded all the way around the edge of the iPhone, which is one very expensive way to ensure the handset’s antenna reception works fine. We’ll stick to the traditional rubber bumper, we think…
Apparently Hughes has been commissioned to produce two of these for an ultra-wealthy Australian businessmen, so reports the Daily Mail. The £2 million 3GS was also produced for a rich Australian, so we’re guessing it might be the same bloke with money to burn.
