Cell with benefits

vertu-cell.jpgNon-verbal cell phone communication. An oxymoron? Not anymore.

Vertu’s Signature Diamond Phone speaks volumes, even when you set it to silent. For starters, it’s a world-class accessory, crafted in the haute joaillerie tradition. Averaging 7.2 carats, the phone contains 923 precious stones—a combination of pink diamonds, pink sapphires and rubies—and takes a skilled craftsman a full month to hand set.

That button? Oh, that’s the 24/7 global concierge service, ready to book everything from your restaurant reservations to private jet transport. And one more click will back up your data to ultra-secure servers maintained in an ex-military bunker in the U.K.

Made to order, the sticker price on this rose gold beauty is $73,000. Those who prefer a more subtle statement can lop off a zero and still get one of Vertu‘s exceptionally engineered models, sans stones.
