iPhone 5 black diamond — $15 million
Made using 135gram solid gold of 24 carats, the $15 million iPhone 5 Black Diamond took nine weeks to build.

The highlight of this black-and-gold iPhone 5 is the single, flawless black deep-cut diamond.
ipad gold history edition – $7,944,000
It works like a normal iPad but it doesn’t look like a normal iPad, and it definitely doesn’t cost as much as one. First of all, it is an iPad which weighs 2 kg and secondly there is a 57g T-Rex bone in its casing. While we don’t get the whole logic of putting a dinosaur bone in an iPad, it can definitely be a conversation starter.
Instead of the usual home button, there is an 8.5 carat diamond with 12 smaller diamonds all around it. Also, when you flip and see the back, you’ll find the Apple logo encrusted with 52 separate diamonds.
18K gold speakers – $4.7 million
The world’s most expensive loudspeakers, these D&W Aural Pleasure speakers have been developed by Hart Audio. The company came out with 99 bronze speakers, five speakers in sterling silver, and only one pair in solid 18k gold.
Each speaker weighs around 50kg, and they come with three speaker drive units which deliver bass and mid-range. But we can’t help but wonder how revolutionary the sound is? When you are dropping $4.7 million for listening to music, you should get artists performing live for you. After all, what is the use of all that money if you cannot get Beyonce to do a private concert for you?
