iDiamond ear

The worlds most expensive iPod

The world’s most exclusive earphones ever made.

Designed by Mr. Thomas Heyerdahl / Heyerdahl Jewellery. “iDiamond ear” is made of 18 karat massive gold, set with a total of 204 diamonds / 1.65 carats. For details scroll down. 

Earlier this year, Heyerdahl created the world’s most expensive iPod, named ”iDiamond”. This was crafted as one unique and single piece of jewellery, not for commercial sale, and will be auctioned away for charitable cause in London 13th of March 2008.

Following the overwhelming response to iDiamond from media, customers and the industry, Heyerdahl decided to go ahead with his idea for the world’s most exclusive earphones for commercial sale. This new creation is named ”iDiamond ear”.

“iDiamond ear” uniquely and most innovatively combines traditional handcraft with modern technology into a high end exclusive piece of jewellery with comprehensive high-tech earphone functionality.

Each carefully crafted pair is set with 204 diamonds, adding up to a total of 1,65 carats. “iDiamond ear” will be produced in a limited edition series of 1000 numbered pairs for exclusivity.

“iDiamond ear” will be available at leading jewellery stores worldwide from March 2008.
