This iPhone 5 Case Costs $100,000 And Features Natural Sapphires And Rubies All Over It
You’ve already taken the time to wake yourself up at the crack of dawn to pre-order the shiny new iPhone 5, which in itself shows that you happen to enjoy the finer things in life when it comes to consumer technology. Sure, the smartphone market plays home to a large number of fantastic and highly capable devices, but the iPhone is the only one that seems to be surrounded by that sense of wonder and extreme levels of consumer interest.
With the iPhone 5 pre-ordered and the first wave of deliveries taking place in less than a week, it’s time to think about making those accessory purchases to perfectly compliment the device. So how about purchasing the ultimate example of iPhone bling and welcoming a jewel encrusted iPhone 5 case into your life? The Natural Sapphire Company has definitely gone down the route of form over function with this one and are attempting to appeal to those people who have more money than sense.
So just what does one hundred thousand dollars get you in the iPhone 5 accessory world? Well, first of all, the case is carefully and lovingly crafted from 18-carat white gold and comes embedded with 2,380 blue Ceylon sapphires that give consumers a total of nearly 170 carats. No iPhone 5 case would be complete without the obligatory Apple logo slapped in the middle of it, manufactured from thirty-eight individual red rubies.
If white gold, blue sapphires and red rubies aren’t enough for you then additional marquise cut green sapphire should polish off the look very nicely. It doesn’t take a genius to understand that this case will appeal to a very select few users who can afford to throw that kind of cash at an iPhone case, but the designers are hoping that people will see it as a way of prolonging the excitement that comes with purchasing a new iPhone. If you have a few extra dollars to throw at an accessory purchase and want to further stand out from the crowd, then it is also possible to add some customization to the case by requesting additional platinum and sapphires in an array of different colors. I for one can personally think of better ways to spend $100,000.
