A company by the name of Goldgenie, specializing in customization of household items, has come out with a £ 2.3 mn (that’s right – its million sterling and roughly Rs. 22 Cr in India at today's prices) Iphone 6 making it the most expensive phone in the world.
This particular edition is called the ‘24K Gold Iphone 6 Diamond Ecstasy’. It comes with a body, which is made up of 24-carat gold; the Apple logo at the back made up of diamonds and to finish it up precious jewels on the sides. And if that’s not enough, they provide the phone in a luxury Cherry Oak Finish box. Instead of gold, one can choose Rose gold or Platinum for the body also.
The founder of Goldgenie, Laban Roomes, had this to say about his company’s milestone product – “This is probably the most exclusive phone at this time, date in the world, I would say it as worth as much as a small island”; Yup, there’s no doubting this one.
Now, you may be wondering if anyone ever buys this stuff but let us clear your doubts. Recently, Goldgenie sold a gold Iphone 6 covered in 6,127 diamonds to an anonymous client for an exceedingly high price of £ 1.7 mn (approx Rs 16 Cr). And if that doesn’t clear the air; Goldgenie has this to show as its client base: the Beckhams, Usain Bolt, Denzel Washington, Kate Moss, Elton John as well as corporates like Bentley, Aston Martin and Blackberry.
