Vertu with a new, extremely luxurious model
It’s been now 150 years that the Boucheron jewelry house, based in Paris, works in the area of exclusive jewelry, watches and even perfumes. Thanks to Vertu, they’re now going for the luxurious mobile phone market. Usually, the French offer jewel ornamented standard phones like the Signature. For this anniversary however, the designers from Vertu have cooked something different.

The Vertu Boucheron 150 is made of solid gold, shaped as a jewel, and the keyboard is made of sapphire crystal. According to the manufacturers, 2200 hours of work are needed in order to produce just one unit (1000 for shaping, 700 for polishing by hand and another 500 for assembling by hand). The phone comes in a wooden box, incorporating the same jewel motives, made (most probably also by hand) by the Swiss house Reuge. There still isn’t any confirmed information on the price, but the source mentions that it’s going to be over $30 000, and rumors go even further – about $1.5 million.
