blackdiamondBritish designer Stuart Hughes is a name that is more often than not associated with the glitzy and expensive lifestyle, as he has come up with plenty of weird and pricey designs in the past, including an iPad that had a real T-Rex bone in it. Well, this time around, Stuart Hughes has churned out what could very well be the most expensive smartphone in the world, where he calls it the iPhone 5 Black Diamond, as it carries a sticker price of approximately $15 million after conversion.

This particular smartphone was custom-ordered by an anonymous Chinese businessman, where it comes dipped in 26 karat gold, in addition to an actual black diamond which will now take over the position of the home key, in addition to 600 “regular” diamonds that have been embedded into the phone’s chassis. 53 of those diamonds make up the Apple logo, and the display has ditched Gorilla Glass in lieu of sapphire glass that is a whole lot more durable, and the entire shebang took Stuart Hughes 9 weeks to make it. Ain’t too shabby to earn so much money in such a short amount of time after you deduct the cost of the materials required, no?
