Goldgenie Offers Customised ‘Year of the Monkey’ Gold iPhones

By Paul Joseph

Iphone customisation experts Goldgenie are offering a 24-karat gold handset themed around the Chinese Year of the Monkey.

Limited to just 99 units, the special edition iPhone 6S features a laser engraved monkey symbol on the back of the handset.

Each of the phones will come with a unique number, making the Year of the Monkey 24k Gold iPhone 6S Elite a rare collector’s item.

The phone will also come packed in a luxury cherry oak display box and will include a lifetime warranty on the Gold customization and the device itself.

It will be available in 16GB, 64GB or 128GB models through Goldgenie’s website, with pricing starting at £2,497.

Last year, Goldgenie celebrated the Chinese Year of the Goat with a similarly fashioned Year of the Goat 24K Gold iPhone 6 Elite handset.

Founded in London in 2005, Goldgenie specialises in providing customization of household items. The service is primarily used to customize mobile phones, games consoles, and items with gold, copper, nickel, chrome and platinum plating, solid gold, Swarovski crystals and diamonds.

The brand does not have any retail outlets but sells selected items via High Street stores including HMV, Apple premium resellers and Selfridges & Co.
