This isn't the first time that Hughes has taken the iPhone 4 and made it twinkle with diamonds. But that one was only nearly £15,000 (~$24,000).

Say hello to the Diamond Rose limited edition, priced at staggering £5,000,000 ($7.99 million). What does this new extra-sparkly and extra-costly 32GB smartphone include? Approximately 500 individual flawless, 100 carat diamonds around the sides, plus a rose gold Apple logo with 53 more diamonds. The center navigation button is made up of a single cut 7.4ct pink diamond, which seems more fitting for an engagement ring rather than a smartphone.

Only two have been made, so start bidding now if you have that much change lying around. For a hands-on look at the luxury collection, check out the video below. At least that's free.
