586 diamonds, $12,495, one Nano

But they could have done better than 14k gold.

Precious Ice

Another iPod, another diamond --or 586 of them, to be exact. In this latest example of egregious excess, a company called Ice Forever will reportedly cover your Nano in 10.36 carats of diamonds set in 14k white gold.

But if you're worried about the cost, take heart: This is an after-market service, so you'll save money by having the bling job done on the iPod you already own, rather than having to pay the additional mark-up charged by the customizer. That will bring the cost down to a mere pittance of $12,495, according to BornRich.

Still, we don't know how they expect anyone to settle for less than 18k or 24k these days. Besides, we all know that what's important is quality , not quantity.
