    Now, THAT is for people who have more money than sense! Its not even nice-looking, its gaudy! Wayne Rooney's missus (or any of the other Football WAG's!) would love it.
    I used to be a Manager for Selfridges & the department next to mine sold those Vertu Mobile phone handsets, I think one of the models cost something like £10,000.00!!! Made of platinum & encrusted with whatever, I believe.
    Like that fauxton, yet another tribute to bad taste!

    Wow. This takes the cake for overpriced and hyped. You'd have to have money leaking out your ears to be able to be ok with buying something like this. Maybe Donald Trump has one on his keychain... probably not though! :)

    What kind of people buys these? I mean I understand rich people wanting gold and diamond jewelry and the such, but this? Why?!

    Agreed! Not only is it hideous, it is way overpriced, garish and fugly. Finally, an expensive light I don't want! :green:

    I just ordered the $950 ear piece for my cell phone. Seems like a great deal to add some bling! :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

    That's very true. Almost every uber-expensive light I see I drool over... except this one.

    While it is certainly not something I would buy or own or use, it very much resembles the hardware and jewelry line of the Brighton purses (of which I do not/would not own either), but they are very popular with others. I am guessing you could actually open it up somehow to replace the light inside (with a Photon, to be sure), and some women are more girly-girly than others–and have more money than others, and at least they would be edc-ing a light. For some reason, I think someone like Paris Hilton would be attracted to this.

    $500 for a piece of jewelry like that is not so outrageous.

    And I think some of you are missing the point. If say you happen to be married to a woman that likes jewelry, why not this. It's the shiny bauble she wants to grace her bosom at the fancy party, plus she's got a good functional light. Come on, it's like something you see in a James Bond film - hot cat burglar babe, sneaks into the room with the safe, retrieves it from where it's nestled in her cleavage and turns it on to crack the combo. And then James Bond walks in and seduces her of course.
