The question is simple: what will you do with a $26,000 blackberry? And what happens if that BB is decorated with Diamond. Alexander Amosu, Nigerian-born but United Kingdom based jeweler and fashion designer has unveiled a $26,000 black diamond Blackberry.
We do not know if RIM is aware of this gorgeous redesign of their product, but it does not matter. We have not seen this device and of course not touched it. Some friends in London we called to confirm if it was only the packaging that was Diamond did not work out as none has seen it. Yet, they confirmed that it was real.
This phone has 18 carat black gold and was made with more than 1,400 little diamonds weighing about 15cts VVS1. There is an option to put your name on the case or even your logo.
According to people, this 33 year old man has been selling this product. He sold a different version that cost $88,000 in 2008. In 2010, he unveiled the most expensive phone ever, Amosu Curva Diamond Blackberry, which sold for $191,000. The Amosu Curva was made up of 4,494 VS1 diamonds totaling about 28 carats set in a coat of 18-karat gold.
In 2004, Amosu made money when he sold his company for $15m – a ringtone company to a UK VAS Mobile player. Using the proceeds, he moved into luxury.
