Average reading time - 3 minutes
Since its launch, the iPhone has traditionally stood out among all smartphones with a rather high price. This gadget has always been a sign of a good financial position of its owner. However, as it turns out, there are versions of the famous smartphone that are priced well beyond the usual standards, and these are gold iPhones. Of course, not everyone can afford such a luxurious device: its price runs into millions of dollars!
In this article, we will look at the 5 most expensive iPhones with an exclusive gold design.
Ready to dive into the world of luxury? Then let's get started!
5th place. iPhone 3G King’s Button

Number 5 on our list is the iPhone 3G King’s Button, priced at $2 million. The author of the design is Australian jeweler Peter Aloisson. The smartphone case is entirely made of yellow, white and rose gold and is decorated with 138 round-cut diamonds of exceptional beauty. Another luxurious 6-carat diamond replaces the Home button.
4th place. iPhone 5 Black Diamond

The design of this exclusive smartphone took about 10 months to complete as a special order. The iPhone 5 Black Diamond case is made of 271 grams of gold of the highest fineness and 136 diamonds weighing a total of 68 carats.
Particular attention was paid to the famous Apple logo on the back of the device — it was encrusted with 53 diamonds. The designers did not forget about the Home button, decorating it with a rare diamond weighing more than 7 carats. The owner paid $2.4 million for this luxury gadget.
3rd place. iPhone 4s Elite Gold

This unique iPhone was made by legendary designer Stuart Hughes. The case of the gadget is almost entirely made of 24-carat gold, and Hughes hand-decorated the sides of the smartphone with 500 high-quality diamonds weighing more than 100 carats.
But the main feature of the iPhone 4s Elite Gold is the additional coating of the case, which is made of... dinosaur bones! It is not surprising that such a device costs almost $7.5 million.
2nd place. iPhone 4 Diamond Rose Edition

The design of this model was developed by the same Stuart Hughes. It doesn’t have any special differences from the iPhone occupying the 3rd place in our top. The number of diamonds on the sides is the same and the weight is exactly the same. And in general, the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S are not very different in appearance.
However, there are still a few differences: the case is plated not with classic gold, but with rose gold. And the Home button is encrusted with a pink diamond weighing 7.4 carats. The price of such a device is slightly higher than the price of the iPhone 4s Elite Gold and amounts to $8 million.
1st place. Falcon SuperNova iPhone

SuperNova is a series of three design solutions for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus from Falcon. Each of these smartphones costs more than all the previous devices in our top list combined. In order not to make a list of only these models, we decided to put them in the first place “collectively” and talk about each one separately.
These gadgets were released in 2014, there are no more than 100 items in each modification. It is worth noting that there are not so many differences between the models in this series, but they still exist. And the cost changes significantly because of this:
platinum Falcon SuperNova iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus with a large pink diamond in the shape of a rectangle on the back panel. Price: $32.5 million;
Falcon SuperNova iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus with a 24-carat rose gold case and a large pink diamond on the back of the smartphone. Price: $42.5 million;
Falcon SuperNova iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus with a 24-carat yellow gold case and similar diamond on the back of the device. Price: $48.5 million. This particular iPhone is the most expensive in history.
Of course, in terms of technical characteristics, the gadgets from our top can no longer compare with modern smartphones. However, the splendor and exclusivity that gold and diamonds give them by far compensate for this. This is why smartphones made of the precious metal will always be produced and in demand.
