10. iPhone Princess Plus – $170,400 (RM72,6048.02)
This iPhone may have “princess” in its name, but it would be OK for guys to have one of these. The name princess actually comes from the way that the diamonds on the phone are cut. All in all, there are 318 diamonds on the exterior of this iPhone with 138 of them being a princess cut.

7. Vertu Signature Cobra – $310,000 (RM1,320,862.01)
