World's most expensive I-Phone

Family heirlooms are often packed away for safe keeping. For one man, hiding a 26-carat black diamond worth $14.5 million was not in his plans.

Custom-ordered by an unnamed Chinese businessman, the handset is dipped in 24 karat gold, a real black diamond has replaced the home key, and 600 "regular" diamonds have been encrusted in the chassis, 53 of which went to adorn the Apple logo itself. The screen protection has been replaced with sapphire glass, which is much tougher than Gorilla Glass, and it took the designer nine weeks to hand-make the unique phone.
Hughes told CNN that one of the solid gold handsets with the diamonds that he crafts is worth approximately $153,000.
