$4,000 iPhone 3G with 400 Diamonds
The London-based diamond jeweler De Vere’s has unveiled the Angels Tears, a diamond encrusted iPhone 3G. This stunning Art Deco inspired phone has been created by De Vere’s founder Philip De Vere in memory of his mother who died of ovarian cancer.
A number of examples are being sold to raise money for the research and treatment of women’s cancers. They are available for a limited time for about $4,000 USD.
The unlocked (by Apple) 16GB black backed 3G iPhones have 400 small brilliant cut diamonds set into the steel bezel surrounding the front screen. The majority of these diamonds are F colour, VS clarity whites, apart from one corner, which has pink diamonds that gradually fade to whites as they extend along the edges of the iPhone.
At a later date, if the owner wishes, the diamonds can be removed from the iPhone and set into custom made jewellery. A plain bezel can then be refitted to the original phone.
The Angels Tears Diamond iPhone is available from De Vere’s for a limited time.
