Natural sapphires, rubies make this $100,000 iPhone 5 case sparkle
Yeah, that $3,000 iPhone 5 case by Gresso is surely expensive, but an even pricier alternative has already been announced for people who just happen to have $100,000 lying around. Crafted by The Natural Sapphire Company, this iPhone 5 case is made out of 18 karat white gold and 2,830 natural blue Ceylon sapphires sparkle on its shiny surface. The Apple logo on its back is formed using 38 natural rubies totaling 2.28 carats, while the leaf on its top is a single cut natural green sapphire. In case the color combo doesn't match your taste, pink or yellow sapphires are also available, while the body of the case can be made out of platinum instead. And in case you are wondering, the accessory is proudly made in the U.S.

From the looks of it, only one of these extremely luxurious iPhone 5 cases will be made, so its lucky owner will have a totally unique piece of craftsmanship beautifying their smartphone. We, however, would stick with something a bit more basic, thank you very much.

$100,000? If I had $100,000 I know I would spend it on something other than a case for a very sub-par phone. Drop that phone once on your drive way & you will have to look for those stones. lol

Something tells me it's not too sturdy.

I know, it's so difficult finding these stones over my 10 Ferraris parked in the driveway. Perhaps I should get 3 of my valets to look for it?

Well that's the thing. If you drop it once it's going to be ruined. Also I guess these people will buy 2 or 3 at a time because all phones fall even if it's just one time. I have NEVER met a person who has never dropped a phone.

$100,000 case even for a super-cool phone is stupidity at best ..

Someone owning this would feel like an idiot dropping their phone and then realizing it would have been better for the phone to break instead of the case.

And, I'm sorry, but someone who spends $100,000 to buy this case not only deserves to be slapped, but should not be rich.

Kim Kardashian, will pay for that- to make herself believe that she's important!

Kim Kardashian is a no talent piece of a$$. The only reason she is anything is because she had her sex tape leaked. (Yeah right it was done purposely.) She has done nothing.

These cases ya.. makes sense only the rich would have the money to spend on such things... but don't bundle yourself with that group unless your rich and buy things like this lol. Having an iPhone doesn't make you classy or rich.. generally these days as Apple is losing its spark its not as amazing to people when they see it.. go remove your head from your a$$. Having a golden Apple avatar doesn't make you better than anyone else lol id be surprised if you even own one because chances are you live in a poor country that Apple taxes even more for the iPhone. Go back under your rock, Thanks in advance. ;)
