Amosu has announced a range of blinged up Pearl 8120s--including the Gold Edition, which has an 18 carat white, yellow or platinum gold base and sides and costs a cool $24,000; and the Pearlific Edition--also in 18 carat gold, with an intricate diamond-pattern design.
For those seeking real sparklers, however, it has crafted a Limited Diamond edition...
Limited Diamond edition
The Limited Diamond edition (pictured) is one of only 20 Pearls Amosu will make worldwide.
Like the other phones in the range, its sides and base are made of 18 carat gold, but this phone will also be "fully loaded" with some 900 hand-cut diamonds.
The prices for the Diamond edition and the Pearlific edition are not yet available. However Amosu also offers an 'iPhone Diamond' made with stainless steel that will set you back about $40,000.
Don't like red? Never fear, the jewel-encrusted Pearl comes in other colors too.
Amosu said each luxury phone takes four weeks to create and comes with membership to "a bespoke concierge service" which gives owners seats at exclusive restaurants and fashion shows, and access to a fully chartered private yacht.
Blackberry Curve and Apple iPhone chain cases
Other one of a kind items sold by Amosu include Blackberry Curve and Apple iPhone chain cases are lined with red suede leather and include 24 carat gold buckles--plus chains.
