There’s only one iPhone 5 case that many millionaires won’t be able to afford. The $100,000 case is made of 18kt white gold and adorned with sapphires and rubies. This case makes the $3,000 titanium iPhone 5 case look like a bargain.
The Natural Sapphire Company is kind enough to include some level of personalization to please ‘distinguished’ iPhone 5 owners with too much money and not enough taste. While it is likely the company is releasing this case as more of a publicity stunt than anything else, there is probably at least one Hollywood star that will end up buying it.
In the $100,000 iPhone 5 case announcement, the Natural Sapphire Company wrote that the case is being offered for:
…the distinguished purchaser and one who appreciates the truly finer things life, not to mention for the one who wishes to remain unique among the masses…
The above image shows what the $100,000 iPhone 5 case looks like. We’re not sure most iPhone 5 owners would want to be seen in public with this thing, much less take out a loan to pay for it.
The Natural Sapphire Company case is set with 2,830 natural blue sapphires. The Apple logo on the back of the case is made of 28 rubies, with a green sapphire shaped as a leaf. If that’s not enough bling for your taste, you can always customize it with a dose of platinum and swap in some yellow and pink sapphires.
The iPhone 5 costs $199 to $349 with a two-year contract and up to $849 off contract. In other words, you could buy up to 500 iPhones instead of this case.
Odds are this case will not actually protect iPhone screen. We bet if you bought this you would rather use your iPhone 5 as a case for your iPhone 5 case. This is one case you DO NOT want to drop.
