This gold and diamond encrusted iPhone 5 can be yours for $1M
The Alchemist London team proves they have the philosopher's stone by turning an iPhone 5 (not 5s) into gold – a one-off gadget worth $1 million / £600K. The millionaire's gadget takes 5 months of handcrafting to produce and there will be only two of those made.
Here's the rundown of precious metal and gems. The bezel, back panel and Home button are made out of 24 karat gold. On the back, there are 53 diamonds forming the Apple logo. The home button has a 2 carat diamond. To top it all off, there are 1,600 flawless F grade diamonds (16 carats in total) on the bezels of the device.
The two Million Dollar iPhone will be sold in London but for a few days – March 9-12 – one is at the Best of Britain Luxury Exhibition in Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
And if a million dollars is too cheap for you there's always the $15.3 million iPhone 5, which has a much bigger diamond on the Home button.

Exactly. If you are not one of the top 1% that can burn 1 mil like most people spend a dollar, you really need a shrink or something.
