$8 million iPhone 4: “It would be a disaster if it was ever lost.”

The world’s most expensive mobile phone is worth a mere $8 million and it’s decked out with 500 individually cut diamonds that total a shabby 100 carats. Yes, the new iPhone 4 is the device of choice and the home button is interchangeable with a glorious 7.4 carat pink diamond and also a rare 8 carat single cut diamond. Want more? The back is covered in rose gold with the Apple logo encrusted by 53 diamonds. I’m sold.

There were two of these made by British designer Stuart Hughes who said ” ”It was a fantastic challenge and I am really pleased with the end result – the phones look superb. Phones are so popular at the moment and this is the ultimate design for one. The diamonds are rare and difficult to source, stones like that usually have a very long history. It is amazing that someone is prepared to spend £5 million on a phone, I doubt it will get used because it is worth so much money. It would be a disaster if it was ever lost.”
