The picture says it better than a thousand words could. Created for the Parisian jewelery house Boucheron for their 150th anniversary, the Vertu looks like a million bucks! The single edition Vertu Boucheron 150 looks more like a dazzling piece of gold jewelery that you would audaciously hang around your neck. Viciously cut in angles like a precious stone, the solid gold Vertu Boucheron is a tribute to both the brands. Frank Nuovo, principal designer for Vertu, states that the styling of the phone is intended to go beyond all expectations in creating the most stunning design a phone has carried to date.
The designer attempted, and succeeded fabulously, in creating the sparkling visual image of precious stones by using metal instead. The Vertu Boucheron 150 comes housed in a Noce Pedullo walnut tree wooden case made by Reuge which plays the Vertu ringtone as you open it.
With a sapphire crystal keypad and featuring 3G connectivity, the Vertu took 1000 hours to cut, 700 hours to hand polish and 500 hours to hand build. The price of the phone is being rumoured at above $30,000.
