iPhone 11 Pro Max is the high-end model of the series which costs between $1,099 and $1449 depending on the storage capacity of the device. However, buying an expensive smartphone is not enough for some, who crave luxury and exclusivity from their gadgets.

Mostly handcrafted, the backs of each smartphone are custom made to transform simple smartphones into valuable pieces of jewelry that get more expensive as they age.
