iPhone for $2.5 Million

Peter Aloisson is an Austrian designer-jeweller who is famous for turning an ordinary gadget into a masterpiece of art and jewellery. Since 1998 he has been releasing diamond-encrusted mobile phones. As for prices, they usually start from 30 grands. The 1.3 million dollar diamond phone was Mr. Aloisson's craft as well. Do you think 1.3 million is a limit?

Last year, Mr. Aloisson made a 52,000 Euro Nokia E90 Communicator. This time Mr. Aloisson tried his craft on Apple's wonder device. The iPhone was "customized" with solid 18-carat yellow gold, white gold, and rose gold. The white gold line is encrusted with a total of 139 brilliant cut diamonds of the best quality. However, the best part was saved for the Home button. It features a rare 6.6-carat diamond. What about the price? It's just 1,790,000 Euros ($2.5 million). WOW!

Well, personally I don't much like such things, but I guess there are people out there who would not mind giving up big bucks for having an iPhone that glitters!
