... is the asking price for this souped-up iPhone 6. Here’s what makes it the ultimate fashion accessory
This Lux iPhone 6 Plus in white is produced by the United States-based Brikk, a maker of “couture” iPhone products.
It is finished in 950 platinum and contains a 5.5-inch screen, 128GB of memory, and is GSM-unlocked for international use. The diamonds on the logo are set using a microscope in a custom-machined bezel in the shape of the Apple logo.
There are also 24K yellow gold and 24K pink gold versions, in white or black.
The phone includes a one-year Brikk warranty on defects and comes in a custom velvet-interior Brikk box along with a certificate of authenticity. Brikk runs on a “profit-forphilanthropy” model, where a portion of the proceeds made on each product are allocated to select NGOs.
Each phone is hand-polished, plated and assembled in the Brikk laboratory in Los Angeles. Many of the materials and processes used to create Brikk products are more commonly applied to scientific purposes such as space travel and exploration.
The Lux iPhone 6 Plus can be ordered now from www.brikk.com, with shipping due to begin on October 20.
