Amongst a jumble of red carpet, glittering diamonds, models, and fashion magazine editors, LG Canada took wraps off its new stainless steel Shine cellphones at the flagship Birks Jewelry store . But, the thing that raised all the eyebrows at the event was a pair of Shine phones encrusted with over $30,000 in diamonds, considered to be the most expensive phones in Canada. The two special edition, not-for-sale, diamond-encrusted versions of the Shine flip and slider phones have been festooned with over $30,000 in diamonds by Birks’ designers. The flip model comes with a charm decorated in diamonds while the slider model has the words ‘Born To Shine’ spelled out in diamonds.

It could have been cool if they auctioned them for some noble cause or whatever because a diamond-studded LG Shine is seriously not meant to be hidden beside the veils. What say?
