Apple launched the new iPhones i.e. the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus a couple of weeks back. Now the device is officially available in the US and will be available starting Oct. 7th in India. Well, one thing which is trending about these new devices is the new Jet Black color. This is the shiny new black color, which will differentiate your device from the others. But the problem is it only comes with 128GB or 256GB variant and is mostly sold out everywhere.

But you thought that the Jet Black is as good as it is going to get, then you might check this one out. a luxury customization studio Karalux in Vietnam has started offering an unusual 24K gold-plating service. For if the jet black isn’t good enough for you and if you have some more cash shed after buying the iPhones, this is what you might want to consider getting. Exclusive enough?

According to them, the gold-plating process takes between 6 and 8 hours as it goes through multiple stages. A nano-coating is applied on top of the metal to protect the original metal layer from scratches. And guess what, you can further customize the look of your already exclusive gold iPhone with a laser engraving of your name, logo or signature. Even better, you can put on your customization hat and go crazy with a 24K dragon and a diamond encrusted Apple logo on the back for some extra money.

Anyway, if in case you missed it, these iPhones are going to be expensive. Probably more than you think. The price starts at $1,900 for a 32GB iPhone 7 and it costs $2,400 & $2,600 for the 128GB and 256GB respectively. And if you own the Plus variants, then just $100 to each price. Well, if you like the 24K dragon for some reason along with the diamond encrusted Apple logo, then keep $4,000 ready for the 128GB variant of the iPhone 7 and $500 more for the Plus variant.
