Apple iPhone 7 Announcement

Apple iPhone 7 Announcement

In the crowded Smartphone marketplace Apple always generally creates the biggest media and public stir, and they have not let us down this time either with the latest addition to the iPhone stable.

It seems that the pioneering London based brand Goldgenie will not fail the public and Apple aficionados either with their offerings of several luxury finishes in 24k Gold, Rose Gold and Platinum, and if this is not enough Goldgenie are offering Swarovski Crystals and high quality diamonds to adorn some of their unique versions of the iPhone.  Goldgenie are now taking pre-orders directly from their secure online shop and also from their luxury retail store within the brand new iMall in the United Arab Emirates.

Knowing the historical delays in obtaining previous models of the iPhone, Goldgenie have today opened their order books for pre-orders of the highly sought after iPhone 7 range which insiders believe may once again be hard to obtain based on past Apple launches and anticipated demand for what may be Apple’s latest Superphone.

The new luxurious collection will be available in 24k Gold, Rose Gold, Platinum and Diamonds with prices ranging from £2,400 to £11,000 for the Diamond Rockstar.  It is also rumoured that the luxury brand will even be replicating the £2.3m iPhone 6s Diamond Ecstasy encrusted with over 800 diamonds.

Goldgenie have been allocated a limited number of devices on the day Apple make the iPhone 7 available and so are encouraging enthusiasts of the tech giant’s newest release to place their orders now to avoid any disappointment.

A 50% deposit will secure your new luxury iPhone 7 in advance of the general public and once released you can have it customised in your chosen precious metal or encrusted with certificate quality Diamonds. The range will also include a limited edition of a Gulf States’ collection as well as the Lucky 8 symbol iPhone 7.

Founder of Goldgenie Laban Roomes quoted, “We’ve had a great response for the iPhone 7 and have already started taking deposits for the new device as of this morning. We have also secured a commitment for 1,250 units of the new iphone 7 on the day Apple releases their device and based on the initial response we anticipate these will be sold within the first two weeks.”

No designer is safe these days ... Prada, Vuitton, Hermes the list is endless but I thought or maybe I wasn't looking properly that the likes of givenchy were safe but oh no the gods of fake world have decided to make the Givenchy Antigona bag their latest victim 

To the fake buyers and fake makers thanks for destroying the image of a beautiful no age demographic bag 

And to those of us who work hard and buy out r little luxuries such as this bag ... It's time to move on this one is done!  

Glashütte Original launches new Boutique Edition of the PanoMatic Luna

Glashütte Original unveils its new exquisite version of PanoMatic Luna ladies’ watch which enriches the manufacture’s growing Boutique Edition. This most recent version of the PanoMatic Luna lends  a truly heavenly dimension to the fine art of watchmaking: a silvery moon appears on a pale blue mother-of-pearl dial, and diamonds sparkle like stars in the sky. The characteristic off-centre hour/minute display, a small seconds and the classic Glashütte Original Panorama Date make telling the time a distinct pleasure. The new pale blue edition of the PanoMatic Luna complements two existing models, one in classic white and the other in darker hues. It is available exclusively in Glashütte Original boutiques around the world.
