Chip Chick pointed us to wireless accessory distributor Technocel, which offers just that--crystal earbuds for a suggested price of $19.99.

Deirdre Hutchins, Technocel's director of product management, said her company was initially targeting the crystal earbuds at teenagers. But in a recent focus group, it turned out that women really like them, too. "They saw (them) as a piece of jewelry," she said.

The earbuds are made and branded by Technocel, and can be purchased online at www.cellcheap.com.
