This $2,500 BlackBerry comes with a warranty and a 'Gold Certificate.' British gold-embellishing company Goldgenie is selling a customized BlackBerry 10 that is exquisitely coated in 24-carat gold or rose gold.

The generic black or white is not enough of a choice for some luxury lovers. This customized BlackBerry Q10 comes with gold-plated rims, bezel and panel below the keypad. It is delivered in a luxurious wooden box case.

The pre-packaged phones can be purchased online. It is also possible to drop off to get any item customized, if preferable. Goldgenie gold-plates several other models of electronics, such as iPhones and iPads.

Gold-plating is a bit different from phone bedazzling -- gold has a connotation and element of preservation. Goldgenie states it has plated everything from roses to game consoles, not just electronics. Gold-plating is also a popular choice for celebrities like the Beckhams, Elton John and Denzel Washington, who are all clients of Goldgenie.
