Overcompensate for your small iPhone SE by covering it with crystals

Overcompensate for your small iPhone SE by covering it with crystals


What better way to casually say, 'I make more in an hour than you do in a year'?

Just bought a new iPhone SE to fit your small hands, and now worrying about what subtle messages others will read into it? No problem: cover it in 24K gold and a slathering of Swarovski crystals.

Because reasons.

The company responsible for this is Goldgenie, which has just announced the pricing for its new 24K Gold, Rose Gold and Platinum versions of the iPhone SE — with the most wallet-busting variant being somewhere in the region of $77,000.

Other variations include an “Elite” edition iPhone SE with all metallic rear, a “Superstar” edition with Waffle finish (that’s gold with a grid pattern, as opposed to covered in maple syrup), a Swarovski crystal version, and far more.

The phones come SIM free and unlocked. They’re currently available to pre-order and will ship 31 March.

Goldgenie has long been in the business of gold-coating Apple products. Alongside the iPhone, the company has also been known to gold-plate Apple Watches and even 27-inch iMacs: the latter coming in with an eye-watering price tag of more than $14,000.

It’s not the only business which caters to this market, either. A couple of years ago, I wrote about Gold & Co., a British luxury jeweler which sells extra-shiny Apple devices to Russian oligarchs, boxing champions, and assorted other folks you don’t want to get on the wrong side of.
