Elton John Starburst iPod Nanos Are Nanocrystalchromatic
January 31st, 2009
These sparkly limited-edition Elton John iPod Nanos definitely live up to the flamboyant style of their eponymous inspiration.
Created by Goldgenie, each Starburst iPod Nano is encrusted with laser-embedded 250 color-coordinated Swarovski crystals, and features Sir Elton John’s signature etched into the back of the case.
They’re available in black, blue, green, orange, pink, purple, red, and silver, and only 100 of each color is being made. Each iPod also includes Rocket Man: The Definitive Hits, a 2-CD set of Elton’s most famous tracks.
Priced at £449.99 incl. VAT (appx. $642 USD) for the 16GB model and £399.99 incl. VAT (appx. $570 USD) for the 8GB model, they’re definitely not cheap, but at least 12.5% of the purchase price from each purchase goes to a good cause, the Elton John AIDS Foundation.
I can only imagine that everything in Elton’s house is encrusted with color-coordinated Swarovski crystals, including his gold-plated cat.
