BlackBerry Pearl decked out in Porsche leather

Goldstriker comes up with a stunning design.


As one might expect from its name, Goldstriker is known mostly for its custom finishes in precious metals and gems . And even though we've seen far worse in that department, its products are still--well, gold.

Yet the U.K. modder has apparently developed a sense of restraint, for it has come up with a beautifully done version of the BlackBerry Pearl in Porsche red leather, reserving platinum for the accents alone. The "Platinum and Nightfire Leather Edition" was the work of German designer Sascha Hildebrandt, according to Luxurylaunches. Even without the gold and diamonds, however, it still sells for $1,600. It is Goldstriker, after all.
