Samsung and Swarovski have partnered to deliver a custom cover for the Galaxy Note 3. On display at this year's Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York, the $300 crystal-clad cover is also on sale for a limited time.

The Galaxy Note 3 case is bundled with a matching bracelet and comes in three color options: Jet (black), Crystal Bermuda Blue and Crystal Metallic Light Gold, and Crystal Metallic Silver. There is one catch -- you'll have to trek to Swarovski's retail store in Manhattan, New York to get one.

This isn't the first time Samsung has offered custom accessories for the Galaxy Note 3; Fallon jewelry designer Dana Lorenz created a series of carrying cases for the phone back in September, 2013. And who can forget the Gold Pink and Gold Brown Galaxy S4 units introduced for the Middle East? But, lest you think this sort of thing is limited only to Samsung, just remember the 24-karat gold-plated version of the HTC One given away to a select few contest winners. Valued at $2,500, there were only two of these ever created.
