IPhone 3g Kings Spits in the Face of the Economic Crisis

by Lambert Varias

For me luxury items are those that are not only ridiculously expensive but are also very impractical or unnecessary. Personally I think the iPhone is still quite expensive. I think it spreads itself too thin in trying to be too many things at once. On the other hand,  its price isn’t that ridiculous for a phone, so it would be silly to call it a luxury item. But now phone blinger Peter Aloisson is producing bejeweled iPhones that will make you think that Louis Vuitton dog carriers are practical. The price of one pimped out iPhone? € 1.79 million, which is roughly $2.41 million USD.

Called the “iPhone 3G King’s Button”, each of these mind-blowing creations is adorned with 18-carat yellow gold, white gold and rose gold. I didn’t even know there was a rose gold. Then it gets insane: lining the phone’s frame are 138 “brilliant cut” diamonds. Then it goes up to 11: The King’s Button’s Home button is topped with a 6.6 carat diamond.

The price by the way doesn’t take into account the 20% VAT.

Folks, diamonds are just compressed carbon. What the hell. Sometimes I wonder what would happen if all the farmers in the world decided to jack up the price of their products to diamond-like prices. But that’s just me.
