iPhone 4S Elite Gold is a Snip at $9 million

If you happen to have 6 million pounds lying around and you can't think of any worthy causes or projects to invest in (any banking execs, perhaps), then maybe you'd be interested in the iPhone 4S Elite Gold edition.

Made by Stuart Hughes, a specialist in luxury goods, the most expensive iPhone 4S in the world, which is priced at $9.4 million, has reportedly been snapped up by an Australian businesswoman.

iPhone 4S Elite Gold is adorned with about 500 perfect white diamonds, which total more than 100 carats, with 53 of these diamonds making up the Apple logo. The handset base is made of 24 carat gold. The home button is itself a pricey jewel with 2.6 carat solitaire surrounded by smaller diamonds.

If somehow this solitaire should get lost or the owner just feels like a change, there is an additional 7.4 carat single cut pink diamond which can replace the solitaire.

Such a precious gadget couldn't come in just an ordinary box, of course, so the makers also designed a special chest made from solid Platinum with polished pieces of original Dinosaur bone from a T-Rex, adorned with rare stones such as Opal, Pietersite, Charoite , Rutile Quartz and Star Sunstone.

Needless to say, this is an exclusive edition; Stuart Hughes only made two iPhone 4S Elite Gold handsets, one of which has already been bought - so hurry, while stocks last!
