Brikk Haven iPhone 5 Case Is Solid Gold, and Not like the 70s Dance Show

If you’re incredibly rich and happen to be in the market for a bizarre and expensive case for your iPhone 5, Brikk has you covered. The company has just announced its new Haven series of iPhone 5 cases, made from gold or other precious metals.

These artisan-made cases have a minimal design with two halves that slip over the phone for edge and back protection, but they are not made from ordinary materials. These cases can be had in yellow or pink gold in addition to platinum.

These aren’t plated, they’re solid metals and cost somewhere between $11,610-$14,235(USD) each. The versions of the case made from gold have 75g of the precious metal while the platinum version has 100g of metal.

If these cases aren’t ostentatious enough for you, the manufacturer will also produce customized versions encrusted with diamonds and other precious stones.

Those rich enough to afford these cases can rest assured that at least a portion of their money is being put to a decent use. Each case purchased will result in the funding of one metric ton of rice for the world’s hungry. Though if you’ve got the money, you could just skip the case and buy about 30 metric tons of rice for the same amount of money. Or maybe a metric ton of steak and lobster.
