If you thought the shoppers who slept outside the Apple Store to be the first to buy an iPhone 5 were unhinged, they have some serious competition.
Namely, the people who are willing to shell out 62,380 for an iPhone case.
Sure, it’s made from 18-carat white gold and set with 2,830 natural blue sapphires, not to mention green sapphire and 38 rubies to depict the Apple logo.
The latest dazzling phone accessory will set you back a staggering 62,380
But there are three serious problems.
First, you’re bound to get mugged.
Second, you will be woken by the ghostly cries of impoverished children every night.
And third, you can pick up something far classier at the local pound shop.
On the plus side, if the colours should clash with your Rolls, the New York-based Natural Sapphire Company is happy to personalise the look with different precious stones.
