Diamond-encrusted iPhone 6 models to retail for $48.5m
Understated: Falcon’s customised iPhone 6 with tastefully unobtrusive chandelier attached.

As if Apple's iPhone 6 is not expensive enough already, US-based luxury mobile specialist Falcon is taking pre-orders for the handset with a lot of bling added, including one alternate studded with a vivid pink diamond, which will set you back $48.5 million.

Falcon's website has a number of varieties on offer, starting at $1.65 million for a black diamond model. Other gems include white diamond at $2.25 million; blue sapphire, emerald or ruby at $4.75 million; blue diamond at $32.5 million; and orange diamond at $42.5 million. Each gem model comes with a choice of chassis, from 24 carat gold, platinum or rose gold, which also applies to the ear pod accessories, which will cost a mere $300,000.

All models incorporate the 5.5-inch display model as a foil to Samsung's phablet ranges.
