Most expensive mobile phones: Few of us could imagine their day to day life without their beloved mobile phone – that little gadget that keeps us connected to our loved ones, our business partners, and the latest news. While the importance of a mobile phone in today’s society is pretty much undeniable, the prices some are willing to pay for this gadget are nothing short of mind-blowing. With that being said, we would like to present you with a list we have compiled of the world’s 10 most expensive mobile phones. In a style similar to our coverage of the Internet’s biggest online stores, let’s take a look.
No. 10: Nokia Arte 8800

Price tag: $134,000
The Nokia Arte can definitely be considered a piece of art. Designed by Peter Aloisson, this mobile phone is entirely made out of 18k white gold and features more than 600 pink and white diamonds.
See the rest of the world’s most expensive mobile phones on the following pages:
No. 9: iPhone Prince Plus
Price tag: $176,400
The iPhone Princess plus is another of Mr. Aloisson’s designs. The phone was named after the Princess cut used on more than half of the diamonds embedded on its surface. The phone’s rim is entirely made out of solid 18 k white gold. There is a “cheaper” alternative to the phone, where only the diamonds are included, worth a little over $66,000.
No. 8: Sony Ericsson Black Diamond
Price tag: $300,000
Unlike other phones listed in our countdown, Sony Ericsson’s price tag does not stem from the fact that it’s bedazzled with expensive gems. Rather, the $300,000 cost can be attributed to the cut-edge technology implemented for the Black Diamond model. Even if it isn’t made out of solid gold, the futuristic design gives this phone a very distinct appeal.
No. 7: Vertu Signature Cobra
Price tag: $310,000
Vertu is renowned for the pricy phones it designs; however, the Signature Cobra model certainly takes the cake. Designed by jeweler Boucheron, this phone is bedazzled with 2 diamonds, 2 emeralds, and 440 rubies. Only 8 Signature Cobras have been manufactured thus far.
No. 6: Gresso Luxor Las Vegas Jackpot
Price tag: $1 million
This phone has a particularly inspiring name as you probably have to win a jackpot to be able to afford it. Well, unless you are obscenely rich, that is. This Egypt-inspired phone is adorned with black diamonds set in a solid gold frame and a back panel made out of the most expensive wood in the world – the African blackwood. Only 3 models have been released so far.
No. 5: The Diamond Crypto Smathphone
Price tag: $1.3 million
Apparently, Peter Aloisson has a thing for designed ultra-expensive phones. The Diamond Crypto Smarthphone is no exception. Although it features a somewhat simplistic design, the Crypto phone features a platinum body and a cover embedded with 50 diamonds.
No. 4: GoldVish “Le Million” Piece Unique
Price tag: $1.3 million
Available by special order only, GoldVish’s phone is made entirely out of white gold and virtually every inch of it is covered in diamonds.
No. 3: Kings Button iPhone
Price tag: $2.4 million
Yet another of Peter Aloisson’s designs, the King’s Button iPhone is a rare gem in its own right. The phone’s rim is adorned with 138 diamonds, but that isn’t even the biggest attraction. The home button is represented by a 6.6 k white diamond – one of the rarest in the world.
No. 2: Goldstriker iPhone 3GS Supreme
Price tag: $3.2 million
This iPhone’s casing is made out of 271g of solid gold and the rim is adorned with 53 diamonds. To top all of this, we have the home button – a 7. 1k diamond.
No. 1: iPhone 4 Diamond Rose Edition
Price tag: $8 million
A rose gold frame and a rim covered in flawless diamonds are the focal points of the Diamond Rose iPhone. What is more, designer Stuart Hughes went all out when designing the home button – a platinum base adorned with a rare pink diamond. The phone is delivered in a 14-pounds chest, cut out of granite, which features an 8k flawless diamond which can be used to replace the pink one on the home button.
