A designer has produced the world’s most expensive mobile telephone, featuring almost 200 diamonds and costing £1.92 million.

The casing of the iPhone 3GS Supreme is made from 22-carat solid gold. The front bezel has 136 diamonds, while the Apple logo is made from 53 of the same jewels and the front button has a diamond of more than seven carats.

Stuart Hughes, from Liverpool, took ten months to make the phone, which comes in a chest made of granite and Kashmir gold and lined with nubuck leather. It was commissioned by an anonymous Australian businessman.

I still prefer the simple plain White look of my White 3GS 32GB, it is much nicer bc flashier isn't always better, remember it is a phone.

Same with people who use gold or diamonds on their teeth, big waste of money.
