Have you ever looked around and noticed some of the elite level phones and other gadgets people use? Did you then look down in your hand and scoff at the $60 phone you currently own? It may be hard to imagine, but there are companies out there that produce million dollar products for people who want nothing less than the best of the best, not to mention rarest of the rare. Do they really need to be million dollar products? Of course not, but sometimes having the money to afford a one of a kind product will make you do crazy things. But just how crazy can the price tag be?
The following gold edition products will make your everyday luxury product look like a piece of junk:
Gold HTC ONE phone
Gold Genie, a company that is well known for gold plating popular gadgets and smartphones, made the Gold Edition HTC ONE phone. This particular phone is embellished in 24 karat gold, rose gold, or, if you prefer, platinum. How much would somebody have to pay to own one of these phones? For a gold edition, the price is $3,015. If rose gold is more your taste, you would pay $3,173. And if you really don’t mind the spend, the platinum version is $3,332. Even though this phone sounds insanely expensive, its price tag looks like pocket change compared to what’s coming next.
Brikk’s Lux Watch Omni
Brikk, a company that designs and manufactures couture products, designed the Brikk’s Lux Watch Omni. This one of a kind 18 karat gold Apple watch features multiple rows of 11.30 ct diamonds around the face, buttons, and strap clasps. At $114,995, Brikk intends to sell only thirty models of this watch.
Gold Apple Earpods
When it comes to Gold Edition products, Apple tends to appear the most often. The Solid Rose Gold Apple Earpods are made out of 18 karat rose gold. They were designed by Apple’s chief design officer, Jony Ive, and the Australian industrial designer, Marc Newson. They developed these ear pods to be one of a kind as part of a Product Charity Auction in 2013 to raise funds for Africa. Although Sotheby’s estimated that they would sell for anywhere between $20,000 and $25,000, the solid rose gold ear pods went for a whopping $461,000.
iPad2 Gold History Edition
Stuart Hughes, a well known UK designer, created the Ipad2 Gold History Edition. This is no ordinary iPad as it is encrusted with 16.5 cts of ‘I’F’ flawless diamonds. It also features 53 individually set sparkling gems and a solid 24 ct Apple logo. Also featured is the front frame which is made out of Ammolite, one of the oldest rocks in the world. Weighing in at 2,000 grams, next to no one will be able to own this iPad, and not just because of what it costs. There are only two of these products available in the entire world. So, what does this iPad cost? $8,000,000. Yes, you read that right. Eight million dollars.
iPhone4 Diamond Rose
Last on the list is what is labeled “The World’s Most Expensive Phone.” It is the iPhone4 Diamond Rose. Also designed by Stuart Hughes, it has a rose gold bezel that features 500 100 ct diamonds on the front and 53 diamonds on the apple logo on the rear. The main navigation button shows off a 7.4 ct pink diamond which is set in platinum. Why in the world would somebody want anything like this? Ask Tony Sage. This iPhone was originally designed for him. Sage is renowned in the gold mining industry and is also the sole owner of Perth’s A-league soccer team. That means that he can afford to pay $8,020,000 for this particular phone.
