Businessman buys $15 million black-diamond iPhone

If you're loaded with way too much cash, this one-of-a-kind smartphone might be right up your alley.

What do you do with a 26-carat black diamond that's been in the family for generations? If you're a fan of Apple with a few extra coins clanking around in your pocket, you apparently attach the jewel to an iPhone.

According to CNN and British craftsman Stuart Hughes' Web site, "Joe," a businessman from Hong Kong, commissioned Hughes to turn an iPhone 5 into a shiny $15 million affair.

After crafting a solid gold chassis, Hughes added 600 white diamonds as decoration, and reserved the Home button to be adorned with the aforesaid black diamond.

The result is an iPhone worth more than what most mere mortals earn in a lifetime, and one that also looks impossibly gaudy. Or gorgeous, depending on your perspective.
