In case you were wondering, this is what an $11,000 iPhone 5 case looks like. Well, it’s actually more of a bumper than a case since it doesn’t wrap around to cover the back of the phone. But that’s beside the point.
What you are looking at is the new Haven iPhone 5 case from Brikk, a designer and manufacturer of couture products and accessories. The line starts out at $11,610, and goes to $14,235 and beyond, depending on the model…
Brikk’s Haven cases come in 4 different flavors: Yellow Gold, Pink Gold, Yellow Gold Satin and Platinum. The gold cases feature 75g of gold, while the platinum model—the most expensive—contains 100g of the metal.
There are other, made-to-order options as well, such as the the Gray Stealth and Black Carbon models you see above. And if that’s not enough opulence for you, Brikk will embed diamonds into the case of your choice.
The case’s frame is made out of pure titanium, milled from a single slab of material, and features an ‘internal shock absorbing silicone gasket system.’ The gold or platinum coating is then applied atop, so there’s no plating.
For those of you who have the money to burn on the $11,000 iPhone case, you’ll be happy to know that at least part of that money goes to a charity that feeds starving children in Africa. Oh and shipping to the US is free.
