Gold plated iPhones: specially for Kazakhstan22 august 2014, 22:55
Fine iPhone jewelry brand Caviar has designed an exclusive iPhone plated in gold specially for Kazakhstan, a Central Asian oil producing country, Tengrinews reports citing the company's representative in the country.
The design of the luxurious iPhone Caviar Kazakistan, as the Italian brand called it, depicts two sights of Astana - Baiterek monument and Norman Forster-design Pyramid of Peace - and a recognizable fragment of Kazakhstan's flag, all this feathered with several Kazakh national ornaments.
"Together, these elements form an unusual ensemble that combines oriental splendor and rich history with modern laconicism," the authors of the idea described it.
And, surely, the new goldenphone is released in a limited edition: there are five of them only.
The cost of one such gadget is 790,000 tenge or $4,340.
One lucky owner of the iPhone is Serik Sapiyev, the world boxing light welterweight champion of 2005 and 2007 and the welterweight Olympic champion of 2012.
Elijah Giacometti is behind the exclusive design. His first collection was created after he visited the Millionaire Fair in Moscow with his own iPhone 3G enclosed in a golden case that he made for himself. This could not have escaped the attention of the attendees of the fair.
Since then the brand released phones dedicated to the history and culture of Italy, as well as famous personalities, such as Vladimir Putin and Steve Jobs.
