This 100% Italian-made beige crocodile skin case for the iPhone 5 carriers a $300 premium over the “cheaper” black leather Guccissima version. The great news is they also have the matching beige croc skin iPad case for all you Apple enthusiasts which only costs $3,450! If you’re going Gucci, you may as well match it all up and go big.
4. Swarovski Elements Crystal iPhone Case: $239
This luxurious bling filled Swarovski case will bring shiny crystals to your iPhone 5 for $239. Although this is not one of the most expensive iPhone cases on the list, it is by far the ugliest. You could always just break a bunch of different colored beer bottles and glue them to the back of your iPhone. To complete the look, just stick on one clear gummy bear and one butterscotch candy (optional) for a similar effect.

This Dragon and Spider case from Anita Mai Tan is the most luxurious of them all as well as the most expensive case with diamonds, rubies, sapphires, emeralds and tsavorite (yes, I had to look this up). The handcrafted case takes about 16 months to produce one single unit. The Dragon features 2,200 colorless and colored diamonds, and bears a total weight of 32 carats. The Spider is set in 18k gold with 2,800 colorless black diamonds with a total weight of 38 carats. The real bargain comes when you find out the case can also be worn as a necklace.
