If you’re already bored of statement necklaces, statement rings, and statement what-nots, it’s time to get a new accessory to flaunt—your mobile phone. And with the blingy mobile phones out there, it’s easy to make heads turn. So check out these two seriously fashionable handsets and see your friends go green with envy.

To start with, there’s the Micromax Q55 Bling with Swarovski “elements”. That’s the one grabbing attention in the Twinkle Khanna TV ad. The phone is very feminine, and I’m sure teenage and college girls are lapping them all over India.

Of course, we never judge a book by its cover, so we looked at its features, and the phone does seem to have the essentials—a 2 MP camera, pre-loaded Facebook app, Opera mini and Nimbuzz. The price—very affordable! Rs 7000 approximately.

For those believe that only gold glitters, set your eyes on the Nokia N97 mini Gold edition. Yup, you read that correctly, it’s gold! The phone is plated with 18 carat gold, with a matching headset.

Flaunting the phone will surely speak volumes about your style and bank balance, because the phone is close to Rs 40,000 (really!). In terms of features, it’s the same as the regular Nokia N97 mini, the gold adding a luxurious touch. (If only the phone was on Android, instead of Symbian.)

Speaking Chic says: Why should mobile phones be only for calling, texting and tweeting, right?What we’d like to see next: an Apple iPhone plated in white gold, and a diamond-encrusted Blackberry. Sounds too far-fetched? Maybe not.
