Even as the new set of iPhones have just been announced, the world is making a beeline for by far the most popular mobile phones ever. But when you have the world at your feet and the moolah in your pocket, just the most expensive iPhone doesn’t quite cut it. Enter specially handcrafted iPhones and iPhone cases, which are specifically crafted to flaunt luxury. The bling, the bespoke goodness, and laser-sharp precision make up some of the most exquisite nests for iPhones, and the price can range from a mere few hundreds to millions of dollars. Here’s a low-down on the hottest iPhone covers you can purchase, if money is not a concern.

Amosu
At a price of $2.7 million, Amosu’s iPhone 6 is possibly one of the most lavish phones you can gift yourself. The shell of the phone comes encrusted with over 6,000 diamonds that sit pretty atop the base, which is made of 18k gold. It comes as no surprise then that the phone takes two whole months to create. And if you have other interests, Amosu will make you bespoke cases for your Blackberry phones too.

Brikk’s Lux
Now while the iPhone X is yet to hit stores, you could simply bypass standing in queues outside the shops and get yourself Brikk’s Lux phones that have already been put up for sale on their website. Their newest collection features the phone with a glass back and laser engraved pattern in black or white. Add to it 24K yellow gold sides, 18K rose gold or 950 platinum sides, the iPhone retails at $7,495.

Miansai 14 carat 
If you like to keep it simple, but also enshrine your iPhone in pure luxury, Miansai’s case is just for you. Made out of 14 carat of pure gold, the cover follows the KISS principle, with no jewels attached. But that doesn’t make it any less audacious in its lavishness. The $10,000 case comes in traditional gold yellow and rose gold forms, and you can choose between a matte or polished finish.

Dragon and Spider 
Anita Mai Tan’s Dragon and Spider cases aren’t just another one of your bejewelled boxes. With a personality of their own, spider and dragon motifs actually emerge from behind the case, in all their glory. Sporting the look of a pendant, the case comes encrusted with diamonds, rubies, emeralds and even tsavorites. With an 18k gold base, the dragon case comes with 2,000 black diamonds, and the spider comes with 2,800 of them. Understandably then, the case takes a crazy 16 months to be prepared with handcrafted perfection, and costs $880,000 — just for the case.

Gresso 
Titanium is the flavour of the season, so why shouldn’t your iPhone flaunt some of that? The new iPhone X and iPhone 8 and 8 Plus is what Gresso caters to, and comes with an 18K back panel. The Diva variant of Gresso is designed for women and is designed using white diamonds and inlays. If a simpler design is your thing, the Gresso iPhone will retail at $4,000, and the Diva designs will burn a hole of $5,900 in your pocket.
