Bling. Bling.

Stuart Hughes is the company responsible for bringing you the world's most expensive game console -- a Wii containing 2,500 grams of solid 22ct gold with diamond buttons -- and a number of gold-diamond cell phones, including a BlackBerry and an iPhone. SH's latest products are luxury televisions that range from $1.5 million to $2.25 million.

Hughes’ new luxury line starts with two 55-inch TV sets, the PrestigeHD Supreme Rose edition and the PrestigeHD Supreme. BornRich.org writes that the PrestigeHD Supreme boasts a base and outer frame done in 22ct gold and encrusted with 48 diamonds with the remaining area set with Aventurine and Topaz. The inner screen bezel is made up from alligator skin and the price tag is roughly $1.5 million.

Even more expensive is the Supreme Rose edition. True to its name, the base outer frame of the Supreme Rose edition are crafted in 28 kilograms of solid 18ct rose gold. The frame contains 72 round cut 1ct diamonds, and left over space is set with Sunstone and Amethyst. The Rose edition gets the alligator treatment too, with hand stitched alligator skin making up the inner bezel. The Rose edition is $2.25 million.

Both of these TVs are manufactured by PrestigeHD using Metz technology. With their sky-high pricetags, these are said to be the most expensive TVs in the world.

    How bout instead of spending $2.25 Million on a 55" tv- they spend $1 to $2,000 on a normal tv and donate the rest to a charity?

    With $2.25M I would contract some research lab to genetically engineer a breed of borderless 96" Samsung LED/LDC's with DP inputs for some mad Eyefinity... Then buy a house to put them in. And have some left over for forthmeal.

    step 1) buy helecopter
    step 2) buy 2.25mil tv
    step 3) hook tv to the helicopter
    step 4) fly to an altitude of 6000ft
    step 5) jump from heli and open parachute
    step 6) rough surface

    they look nasty and shiny- too distracting. give me a plain black, non-distracting bezel any day. I'm watching the screen not the bezel!

    I thought the most expensive tv was the jumbo-tron in the new Cowboy's stadium. I saw a video of some construction workers playing halo on it.

    Do they even do 3D? Why stop at 55"?

    $2.25 mill for 55" HDTV. No way!

    At prices like this I wouldn't settle for less than 65" so no sale to me!

    Even if you are wealthy, those TV's are ugly as sin. A 108" Plasma is the way to go to brag about wealth.

    More proof that money doesn't buy taste. Or class.

    I'm sure the people in the market for this kind of extravagance already have a full array of toys, cars, etc.

    I wonder if anyone who makes that kind of money has the time or interest in TV enough to watch one... maybe it is just for their housewives / husbands or mistresses.

    I don't think this really counts as the most expensive. It's a regular tv, with a bunch of jewels on it. Using that standard I could make the world's most expensive piece of shit by simply throwing a handful of diamonds on top of it. It's the diamonds, not the tv, that is expensive. I expected to see a 200" OLED monster or something.
