What do you buy the gamer who has everything this Christmas? It’s a toughie, but we think we have the ideal suggestion – the Wii Supreme.
This has to be the very last word in unabashed and thoroughly outrageous videogame decadence – Nintendo’s motion-sensing home console manufactured in over 2,500 grams of the shiniest 22carat gold known to man. Not only that, the three fascia buttons are encrusted with 78 0.25carat flawless diamonds.
This is the work of Stuart Hughes – or 'Goldstriker', as he’s perhaps more famously known. The Liverpool-based jeweller has a global reputation for taking everyday objects and lavishly smothering them with as much high-carat gold, platinum and glittering diamonds as space and good taste allows.
Current big-sellers include diamond-studded Blackberry phones – a snip at £3,995 – and a gold-encased iPod Touch that features 300 tiny WS1 diamonds for a cool £139,995. But rarest and most expensive of all is the iPhone 3GS Supreme, which is laden with 271 grams of 22ct solid gold, 53 flawless diamonds on the back, 63 on the front and a massive 7.1ct dazzler where the button should be. Assuming you ever dare press it, that is. And we doubt you will, given its £1.92 million price tag.
