Just for the record, iPhones and iPods aren't the only objects of jewelers' affections. In fact, some aren't even portable at all.

There's almost no better example of this than this HDTV embedded with 155 rubies, which comes with screens in sizes from 32 to 40 inches and goes for around $85,000. (We say "almost" because, as BornRich notes, the "Yalos Diamond" bests it with 160 diamonds and white gold trim for $130,000.)

And if you don't mind mixing and matching your precious minerals, we have the perfect place to display your ruby TV: the "diamond dust" stand, for just another $142,000.
