Need an iPhone case? Here's one for $20,000

It's predictably dripping with diamonds, gold, and egregious excess.

Case-mate

Silly us. After seeing Amosu's work on its diamond iPhone , we thought there was a market for such things. But apparently it's the case that people are after.

Case-mate's cleverly named "Diamond Case" is made with 42 of the rocks, totaling 3.5 carats, embedded in 18k gold. Tech Digest says the company gave one away at Macworld and will happily sell them for $20,000 apiece if you didn't attend. There's also a carbon-fiber version for $90, in case you're in need of a late Christmas gift for the butler.

But a bit of advice for the company: Lose the cheesy nameplate.
