The iPad 2 shortage has already caused it to hit ridiculous prices on eBay, but even paying double the MSRP is nothing compared to what Stuart Hughes thinks a couple of suckers are willing to spend. Their custom ‘iPad 2 Gold History Edition’ has been bedazzled beyond recognition, including the price tag which has ballooned to over $8,000,000 (£5,000,000) because of the following… um… enhancements:
Encrusted with 12.5 cts of ‘I’F’ Flawless diamonds, a magnificent total of 53 individually set sparkling gems dwell beautifully in solid 24ct Apple logo with rear section formed again in 24ct gold weighing an immense 2,000 grams. The unrivalled imagination towards the craftmanship of the iapd is down to its main front frame which is made from the oldest rock the world has to offer in the form of Ammolite , sourced from Canada this stone is over 75 million years old. However to make this masterpiece even more individual, sections of a 65 million year old T-REX Dinosaur’s thigh bone was splintered and then shaved into the Ammolite , then finished off with ultimate jewel , as single cut 8.5ct flawless diamond inlaid in its own platinum surround with 12 outer flawless diamonds.
If you’re interested you’ll want to act quickly since only 2 have been produced and I’m sure they’re going fast. I wonder if I can get a review unit though?…
