Can we take a break from the non-stop holiday mindset, and discuss June 2015? You know, that time of year when you're focused on pedicures, and summer highlights, and dropping 30 Gs on your diamond-encrusted Apple Watch band. What? You didn't know about the diamond option?
According to Luxury Launches Mervis Diamond Importers is taking pre-orders for an 18 karat gold Apple Watch with a tennis bracelet design, studded with eight rows of diamonds. The order form states that the band has a total of 15.14 carats of diamonds, graded as E/F in color and VS1/VS2 in clarity. You get to choose your own metal: rose gold, white gold, or platinum.
If you're interested in pre-ordering one of these bad boys, you don't have to hand your money over just yet. Fill out the form here, and a Mervis rep will call you to sort out the details. Payment is due upon delivery —expected to be around June 1, 2015— and payment plans are available.
Would you wear a blinged-out Apple Watch, or do you prefer the minimalist, designed-in-California options?
