18 carat gold and 300 carats of diamonds used to spruce up aging iPad
Despite Apple’s iPad 2 being readily available for as little as £399, Camael Diamonds has announced it is to release an accessorized rendition of the original Apple tablet for a hefty $1.2 million (£731,172).
With the monstrous price tag made up from an 18 carat gold coating topped off with more than 300 carats of flawless diamonds, the Camael Diamonds finished tablet will see its exclusive owner stand out from the hoards of iPad touting commuters.

It becomes the first cosmetics brand to use the Apple iPad® in-store as part of a state-of-the-art, self-guided skin care diagnostic tool being rolled out this month at select counters nationwide
Using software exclusive to Clinique on the Apple iPad at Clinique counters, consumers identify their skin care concerns and receive personalized recommendations using a 90-second computer-guided skin care analysis. The diagnostic tool processes over 180,000 product combinations that precisely match each consumer’s personal needs. At the end of the intuitive analysis, consumers receive a printout or email with a list of their custom-fit product recommendations.
Just as how Louis Vuitton was the first luxury label to debut an Apple iPod case back in the day, the French leathergoods and ready-to-wear house has rolled out a special case designed for the iPad. While it’s almost the price of the iPad itself, for those who work in the fashion or entertainment industries, it’s a small price to pay for a stylish yet durable cover.
