Luxury cellphones are the latest accessory. Following on from Vertu’s success, Swiss brand Goldvish launched ‘Pieces Unique’, Le Million, which is officially listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the most expensive cellphone ever made. Costing a cool one million dollars, the device is handcrafted from 18-carat white gold and features a staggering 1,800 diamonds totalling 120 carats.
The phone was created by Swiss watch designer Emmanuel Gueit, who admitted that the distinctive shape was reminiscent of a boomerang. Geneva-based company Goldvish, was founded in 2004, and has capitalised on the growing demand for ultra luxurious items by combining precious metals, the finest diamonds, haute couture styling and the latest technology to create possibly the most prestigious and certainly the most exclusive cellphone collection in the world.
