White Diamonds artistic crystal cases for iPhone and iPad [Give away]

White Diamonds makes iPhone 4 and original iPad cases with artistic prints embedded with Swarovski crystals. We first saw them at CES 2011 and when they offered us the chance for a closer look we jumped on it. Frankly, we wanted to see how well these gorgeous cases stood up to daily wear and tear. White Diamonds was kind enough to send us an Angels Calling iPhone 4 case by Vince Fraser, a Rainbow collection iPhone 4 case by Livius Dietzel, and a Nafrotiti iPad case also by Vince Fraser.

White Diamonds cases consist of clear plastic frames with artistic, crystal enhanced back plates. They come in a variety of colors and in several designs. I found them a little difficult to put on and take off but once on they fit well with no looseness or wiggle room. The sides come up slightly higher than the display of the iPhone or iPad which isn't my personal preference (I like to be able to swipe and select without hitting an edge) but it does let you place your device face down without worrying about the screen if you so wish.

I was initially worried about the crystals falling off during day to day use or when placed down on a table but after several weeks of consistent use they're all still there and look as good as the day I got them. That's very impressive. I did drop my iPhone 4 while using the Angels Calling case and though the corner chipped slightly it's sacrifice was not in vain -- it protected my iPhone 4 completely.

If you want to add a splash of style and sparkle to your iPhone 4 or original iPad, check out White Diamonds!

White Diamonds artistic crystal cases for iPhone and iPad [Give away]


I'd like to see Gabriel Rodriguez's work get this treatment. He illustrated Joe Hill's Locke and Key series and I love his work.

I would love to see them use Olivia ( fantasy art ) or Gil Elvgren ( Pin up Girls ). I am more partial to the Ipad case personally.

Wow kwijl have That awesome case for my IPad THE Art is great love it oliva
THE are dealt Nice Gadgets
THE netherlands

Beautiful presentation, presenter, fair enough audio sound, great camera definition and tone... And still I have one question.
Why in the kitchen? Lol seriously.

Are you serious?? First of all, the image is WAY overexposed, and Georgia, PLEASE TELL WHOEVER SHOOTS YOUR VIDEO TO WHITE BALACE THEIR CAMERA FIRST!!! Geez, the White Balance is completely off and looks terrible. And there is WAYYYY too much bokeh in the image. Your depth of field is so narrow, that 90% of the time, the subject is completely out of focus. Stop up your aperture a bit to get better depth of field. Bleeehhhhh

I've gotta go with Gil Elvgren too. Or maybe Georgia O'Keefe, since my girlfriend probably wouldn't want pinups on HER phone. :-)

My hope of winning is beginning to fade. But trying doesn't hurt so here goes, Ansel Adams! :) That would be just great!

Edvard Munch, artist of “The Scream.” It would look awesome with the Swarovski crystal treatment.
Goooooood luck!

Vince Fraser!
These cases are awesome. Would love it for my girlfriend. I photoshopped a custom GroveMade bamboo case for her and she loved it! This would be so nice for her

I would love to see Matheus Lopes Castro's work made into some cases. Really there are a lot of great artists out there.
I also love seeing people change there names but post the exact same comments trying to win.

I would like to see him give his crystal treatment to some of Claw Money's work, she's a graffiti artist

I had the apple in-ear and they were horrible. I went through 3 pairs and each pair would constantly shock me. I am now using klipsch and they are pretty cool.

How about "My Heart Will Go On" by Titanic.
Every one of these aggressive designs will get old pretty fast. And why would you want crystals (glass really) sticking out of your case so they can scratch up all of your other expensive stuff like your furniture or your laptop?

No actually I meant embedded not embellished...
1) To fix firmly in a surrounding mass: embed a post in concrete; fossils embedded in shale.
2. To enclose snugly or firmly.
There is a small recess in which each crystal is placed (embedded in) and that is why they do not fall out easily as with other crystal embellished cases...

Vince frazier for sure! It Would be so exciting to get one of these beautiful cases. Thank you for the cgance to win

The Scream by Edvard Munch is clichéd but it's a classic and I think it would get a lot of attention and conversations striked up!

My vote is Michael Godard.
To be honest I have not heard of him. I saw his name and google'd him. Nice work.

Crystal Bowersox, of course! Actually, I was thinking of Van Gogh's Starry Night or Munch's Scream, but originality might be a deciding factor in this give away.

The artwork of Marilyn Manson would look fantastic embedded in the crystal cases. I feel his watercolor would translate very well to this very different, very modern medium.

id like it to be transparent but somehow capture an image from my i pad for a few days, like something from flowart or anything we design really and then fade by the end of the week to do something else,

I may be dating myself, but I'd LOVE to see Peter Max art on a case, especially one the size of an iPad! (It would still be good on an iPhone too...)

I love the Black Rainbow Collection wish the black diamond on the back. It would look awesome on my phone. Sure would love to have it.

i am aaminah and i am 10
i love phones my wish is that i one day one day win an i phone i hope i win
love you lots
love from aaminah hussain aged 10

I love this cases too I have 4 of then the quality is the best I have it for months and not even one scratch and the diamonds safe and shiny in place.I will love to have the black Rainbow Collection iPhone 4, the artist I like to see get the crystal treatment is Vince Fraser, my respect to him, I was looking in ebay for more to buy it but did not find it.

Great issues altogether, you simply gained a new reader. What may you recommend in regards to your put up that you simply made some days ago? Any certain?
