The company said it set out to create an item that was so luxurious it would 'redefine the meaning of grandeur' and spent seven months making the bespoke device.
'It has culminated in the production of the most sought after piece of customised technology available in the world today,' said a spokesman for Alchemist London. 
The rear panel of the Million Dollar iPhone is made from 24-carat gold, with 53 diamonds making up the Apple logo.
