An iPhone is an iPhone, well until it’s dipped in gold! When I first saw the picture above I said, “wow, this must be worth a fortune!” . Well, not really. Unlike the Christian Dior Mobile phone which costs about $28,000, the Gold iPhone will set you back only $2,000. For a 24 karat gold plated iPhone, I think it’s worth it.
Every iPhone gold unit is first coated with the original plastic case in copper to patch any dings, then nickel-plates it to keep the copper from leaching into the gold finish. A notch in the base for the antenna guarantees reception. A very tedious process to get that extra bling when you flash your iPhone around. Just be sure you do it discretely as you do not want to grab too much attention.
Gold isn’t its only cloak though… it is also available in yellow or rose gold, chrome, copper, or platinum.
If you feel that gold’s your color, you can get your very own right here.
