The iPhone isn't categorized as an affordable smartphone when it comes to price. For example, the lowest iPhone 7 (32 GB) is sold at $649, while the highest (iPhone 7 Plus 256 GB) is $969. Moreover, the recent rumors suggest the coming iPhone series so-called iPhone 8 or iPhone Edition, may have a price that will go over $1000.
However, for some people, it's not such a big deal. They don't care if they spend a lot of money to pimp their iPhone to look unique and fashionable. They don't mind if the case is more expensive than the iPhone itself. Here is a list of the most expensive iPhone cases ever made.
The Most Expensive iPhone Cases Ever Made.
Crystal-covered case from Swarovski- $239
You can find many iPhone cases in the market for around $10 or even lower. Of course, that is not a huge amount of money compared to the iPhone price itself. Spending an extra $10 for the case can mean nothing. But this Swarovski case might make you think twice before you buy it. It's not the most expensive iPhone case, but the price isn't that affordable. Its cost is $239. Various shapes of Swarovski crystals cover the whole case. The design is unique and classy. So, I think $239 is a fair price for this case.
Gucci crocodile case- $495
What makes this case so high in price is the material. Gucci uses alligator skin to make this iPhone case; it is no wonder it is expensive. Alligator skin is known to be more weather resistant than cow leather. The price is almost similar to the iPhone price itself. Gucci is a famous brand. Therefore, a $495 price is worth it.
Iguana-effect leather from Dolce & Gabbana- $895
The other luxury and expensive case for the iPhone is made by a famous brand in the fashion industry, Dolce & Gabbana. This beautiful iPhone case has 90% calfskin as its material. It's designed like an Iguana skin and has blinking jewelry on its back. The combination of high-end material, colors option, and classy design makes it worth $895.
The flower Eifel tower case- $1,495

The Case-mate case- $4,271
This is one of the most expensive iPhone cases made by Case-mate, and it's a limited edition. With their price for a case, you can buy almost five iPhones 7. At a glance, you might see nothing special except a hard plastic cell with a silicon line. The design is very simple. Why the high price? First of all, it has soundproof technology that can redirect the sound outside the iPhone. The material allows users to customize the case with anything they like, like a photo or decoration things.
Golden crocodile leather from Louis Vuitton- $5,500
Recently, another popular fashion brand named Louis Vuitton launched their outstanding iPhone 7 Plus case. The case is made of crocodile leather with gold color, microfiber lining and a key tag.

That price is the classic collection, and as they say, the highest price can reach up to $1.3 million for Bespoke Collection models.

This is an exceptional iPhone case. Besides its outstanding price, the design is also unique. Made of 24K solid gold and encrusted diamonds, you can see the previous US president is emblazoned on the case.

Last month, a Chinese woman walked into the store and requested that Goldgenie put together a glitzy device emblazoned with the president-elect's features.
