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]

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!

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

Darkstar says:

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

opps my previous comment was a mistake, but I like Angelss Calling case :)

Ricky Williams says:

I have to say Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel gets my vote. In crystals it would look heavenly lol pun intended.


Starry Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh would be awesome!!!

Untidyguy says:

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?

Bob Lundy says:

Elvis Presley "Hound Dog"

Kujo says:

The Final Fantasy artist, Amano.

gbernier says:

How much do cases like those retail for?

jbuck387 says:

I'll go with René Magritte's "Son of Man"

Grammar D*ck says:

Embedded is the word you're looking for Georgia....not embellished.

Georgia says:

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...

teramisu says:

Leonardo Da Vinci - Mona Lisa

The Scream by Edvard Munch would look awesome with some crystals or starry night by van Gogh!

cl1ck4207 says:

Michael Godard Cases like this would definetely be the best.

Tyler says:

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!

James Ricketts says:

Van Gogh's Starry Night dud...

Michael Murdock says:

I'd take any of them. Very slick!

Jim says:

Wayne Jelley says:

Takashi Murakami would be my choice to get this treatment

Carolyn Nicander Mohr says:

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.

Andy Warhol
