It may come as a shock, but not all customized iPods need to look like something only Paris Hilton would buy. As shown by the recently featured 18k gold Shuffle, for example, beauty and luxury can indeed coexist.
In fact, a new model by U.K. jewelry designer John Harrington has shockingly found a way to use both gold and diamonds without being garish. His "Diamond Shuffle" uses only five high-quality stones in its laser-etched design, according to BornRich, featuring his signature "Renaissance" motif.
At a little over $600 it's hardly a bargain-basement item, but that's a far cry from the $10,000 or $20,000 prices quoted for the aforementioned Shuffles. And remember, it has the ultra-rare quality of actually being done in good taste.
