The Jewelry Insider

December 17, 2008

Diamonds and gemstones have been dripping from hi-tech gadgets like ipods, ear buds and remote controls for years now. And while top designers like Prada, Dolce & Gabbana and Armani have all entered the designer phone market, Dior is launching a luxury model that is about to blow them all out of the water.

The new Dior Phone Diamonds (Glorious Black) is set with a whopping 641 diamonds, weighing in at 3.251 carats. Not enough bling for you? How about 34 black sapphire crystals for good measure?

Of course this game of telephone will cost you. But what fashionista on-the-go doesn’t want to spend $28 g’s for her all-important talking device?

Yup, that’s three zeros, people….

The ultra-slim clamshell design was created by Modelabs and comes with a sleek hand-brushed stainless steel case engraved with the Dior logo. A flat electro-luminescent keyboard and a luxe crocodile holder are also part of the package.

For the frugalistas out there, Dior offers a less expensive Swarovski crystal version in a leather case. Prices start at a mere $8160, and there are five glittering color options to choose from.

But why sell yourself short when you can carry the equivalent of a decent four-door sedan in your Birkin bag?

Ring a bling bling…
