Diamond studded Olympic iPhone all set to dazzle the event
From today onwards, the countdown for the 2008 Olympics starts from 10, 9, 8…..and will end on the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympics that is on 8/8/08 at 8pm. And for the very same moment, diamond jewelers from London, De Vere, are unveiling the 88 diamond-studded Olympic iPhone to commemorate the event. Wondering why the recurrence of number 8 all the time? Cause in China, the number double 8 is considered to be a lucky number and also double 8 stands for double wealth. And so to respect their belief and woo all Olympic as well as iPhone buffs, De Vere has decked this 3G Apple iPhone with precisely 88 diamonds only. Caked in to the steel bezel surrounding the iPhone’s screen, this Olympied iPhone carries a tag of £4148 ($8224). If the price tag of world’s most expensive iPhone has burnt your fingers and heart, than I suggest this piece of cake doesn’t seem to be an unpleasant bargain either.
To go a bit easy on your pockets, another De Vere iPhone design contains 28 diamonds and costs £1700 ($3376). While those seeking a bit more luxury can opt for another version that is festooned with168 diamonds and carries a pricey tag of £7800 ($15493). The jeweler however states that these prices are only for the bejeweling your iPhone. If you wanna get one, then you need to provide the iPhone to them and get it bespoked in a variety of patterns. The choice is yours!
