The company is renowned for adding sheets of gold plating on some of the most sought-after gadgets on the market, and the iPhone 5 – which released on Friday – is certainly the most-wanted device on the market at this point in time. As you can see from the images, the already aesthetically-pleasing device looks stunning laden in solid 24k gold, and although we ourselves don’t have that kind of cash to splash on gold-plating, we’d have to prefer the black model, based on the images. The White & Silver model seemed to be your favorite based on the poll we threw up on Facebook over the weekend, but alongside the gold plating, the darker of the two iPhone 5 configurations certainly oozes the most sophistication.
Prices have yet to be revealed, although having contacted the company personally, I was advised the iPhone 5 would cost $4600 for the gold, with the Rose gold weighing in at around $5000. Considering a 64GB iPhone 4S gold plated by the same company will set you back around $4,300, it seems the predictions aren’t too far off what they’ll retail for, but nevertheless, you’ll really have to push your usual smartphone budget out should you wish to add such a luxury touch to your prized asset
If money was no object, and you were planning to smother your iPhone 5 in delicious gold, which color would you choose? Would the images sway you from your previously-decided favorite?
