The trend of getting a luxury makeover for the Apple iPhone seems to grow out of control.

Solid gold Vertu Boucheron looks strange but gorgeous!
This is something that doesn’t look to be a Vertu creation, but it is. Created to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Boucheron French jewelry house, the solid gold Vertu Boucheron 150 looks to be a crippled handset. With lots of planes and angles, the phone case has been crafted from a single piece of gold, and it took 1,000 hours to cut into shape, 700 hours to hand polish, and more than 500 hours to build. The luxury handset comes in a luxury wooden case that is made from the Noce Pedullo walnut tree. Every time you open the case, you will be greeted by the Vertu signature ringtone. We are short on technical details, and the only thing we know for now is that the golden phone offers 3G connectivity. Pricing for the weird-looking yet gorgeous, solid gold Vertu Boucheron 150 is not confirmed yet, but the rumor says it will set you back approximately $30,000.
For me, the Motorola MING A1600 is one good looking handset, and it doesn’t need any gilded makeover. But, the good folks at Motorola think the other way as they seem to have teamed up with renowned French jeweler and watch maker Cartier to roll out the Motorola MING A1600 Luxury Edition. The luxury edition handset has a gold plated body decorated with faux crocodile skin. The package comes complete with a Cartier business card. Other than the new, shiny looks, everything else is same as of the original phone. The Motorola MING A1600 features a 3-megapixel camera, 2.4-inch 262K color QVGA touchscreen display, a microSD card slot, stereo Bluetooth, a microUSB port and a stereo FM radio. The Motorola MING A1600 Luxury Edition sells for TWD $28,000 (approximately US $867). The price tag looks decent enough to compensate for the included Cartier business card holder.
