We don’t even know for sure what the unrevealed iPhone 6s is going to look like, but that isn’t stopping one company from opening up preorders for ridiculously expensive and extravagant custom versions of Apple’s upcoming handset.

Luxury design company Brikk will pre-sell you blinged-up versions of the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, and if you have $206,000 or so lying around that you’d love to spend on a phone you haven’t even seen yet, they have a model for you.

This isn’t Brikk’s first go at slapping diamonds onto already expensive things. The company also offers a superluxe Apple Watch that makes the one we spotted Ludacris wearing look like he won it in a claw machine at Texas Roadhouse. Or if time isn’t your thing, you could also check out this $58,000 Nikon camera finished in 24-karat gold.

Brikk’s website says that the iPhone 6s models will be available a few weeks after the new hardware’s launch. You’ll be able to select either a standard 6s or 6s Plus, and they’ll come in three varieties: 18-karate pink gold, 24-karat yellow gold, and 950 platinum. This is all plating over the original phones, and Brikk offers even more options when it comes to what how many diamonds you want them to add.

The cheapest model of Brikk’s customs is a relatively modest $7,995 gold-plated iPhone 6s with no diamonds. The priciest one, however, is a $205,995 iPhone 6s Plus with the back completely covered in diamonds and 256-bit encryption software included.

These phones are unlocked, so they’ll work with just about any carrier, and not just the secret one with the ultra-fast network and universal coverage that only rich people know about. In order to lock in your very own superdiamondphone, you’ll need to lay down a non-refundable deposit of between $2,500 and $25,000.

Apple is set to announce the latest iPhone models on September 9, and they should go on sale a couple weeks after that. So you should expect to see Brikk’s versions rolling out before Halloween, which makes sense because those prices are terrifying.
