Smart phone accessory guide for young millionaires

Some of us can only aspire to be millionaires, while others are already living the high life at a young age. Think Facebook co-founders, Mark Zuckerberg and Eduardo Saverin, or co-founder of Napster, Sean Parker, or even socialite Paris Hilton.
Luxury phone makers such as Gresso and Vertu have made handsets geared toward the "discerning consumer", but these days the Symbian S40-powered devices won't cut it anymore. These days, you'll probably see a young millionaire toting a BlackBerry Porsche Design P'9981 or perhaps a gold-plated iPhone embellished with Swarovski crystals.
Of course, it's all about exclusivity--being one of the privileged few in the world--with the opulent accessories that we've rounded up which cost way more than the average smartphone.

Essential accessories

Miansai gold iPhone case

Whoever said "all that glitters is not gold" has obviously never seen Miansai's solid gold iPhone case.
Available in either yellow or rose gold, with a matte or polished finish, the US$10,000 iPhone case can be customized with an engraving of your choosing. Of course, each case will be marked with its own unique serial number.

We imagine it's still a lot cheaper than a 24-karat gold iPhone 5.
Exclusivity: Made-to-order
Compatible with: Apple iPhone 4/4S
Price: US$10,000

 Jarre AeroSystem One by Lalique

AeroSystem One, developed by French musician Jean Michel Jarre's eponymous company, becomes a work of art at the hands of 13 master glass-blowers from French crystal house, Lalique.

Made of stainless steel and handblown crystal, the speaker dock took four years to develop. The AeroSystem One is claimed to "deliver a precise and enveloping sound" that's close to studio-quality.

Exclusivity: Pre-order
Compatible with: Apple iPods/iPhones (with 30-pin dock connector)/any smartphone with a 3.5mm jack
Price: 12,000 euros (US$15,390)

Plantronics Discovery 925 Jewel


The Plantronics Discovery 925 Bluetooth headset gets the Midas treatment with 18-karat gold, as well as 40 diamonds and 31 natural pearls.

Last we heard via luxury Web site Bornrich, the headset was slated to be auctioned off for charity.
To feel like a million dollars without busting your budget, we suggest getting the ordinary version of the Discovery 925 in "Alchemy Gold".

Exclusivity: Only one unit
Compatible with: Bluetooth-enabled smartphones
Price: US$50,000

Gresso Revolution iPhone 5 case

We imagine Gresso must be the luxury phone brand of choice for rich Russian oil magnates, due to its many boutiques in the country.

The company has just introduced the Revolution, a bumper case made of titanium and polished 18k yellow gold. The gold accent is engraved "Gresso Revolution", and each case will be assigned a unique serial number.

Oh, and there's a lifetime warranty for the bumper case, of course, which is way longer than the shelf life of an iPhone 5.

Exclusivity: 999 units
Compatible with: Apple iPhone 5
Price: US$3,000

Beats by Dr Dre headphones (Graff Diamonds limited-edition)

Valued at US$1 million, these diamond-encrusted Beats by Dr Dre headphones have been spotted on LMFAO member SkyBlu and rapper L'il Wayne.

Customized by Graff Diamonds, the headphones rock 1,600 diamonds with a total weight of 114 carats. That's not counting the 3 carats of rubies for the Beats logo, of course.

That's not all. We're intrigued by the YouTube video, uploaded by Graff Diamonds, showing the process of making the ridiculously-expensive cans--it looks like it was assembled by a master in a dark room.

Exclusivity: Only one unit
Compatible with: Any smartphone with a 3.5mm jack
Price: US$1 million
