A 32GB flash drive costs about $30 online. Then again, those aren't covered in 10 carats of precious gemstones. Take that 99 per cent.
The Magic Mushroom line of ultra-premium USB drives from Swiss jeweller La Maison Shawish are available in pink ruby, red ruby and emerald varieties. The nine carats of pink stones studded with diamonds will run $US16,500, a 10-carat red ruby (again with diamonds) costs $US24,400, and the top-of-the-line, emerald-coated case will set you back a cool $US36,900.
They all have a 32GB capacity and, according to Shawish, were meant to evoke the mushrooms from Alice In Wonderland. However, given that you could buy 58 of the new 32GB iPad for what you'd spend on just one of these, this is one rabbit hole you probably shouldn't go down. [Born Rich via Yahoo]
