iPhone 3G Kings Button
If your only wish for 2011 is never to hear "Honey, where's my cell phone?" The iPhone 3G Kings Button could potentially be your solution.

The phone is covered in 18 carat yellow gold, rose gold, white gold and approximately 138 small diamonds. The home button is where the real bling is -- it's encrusted with a huge 6.6-carat diamond; with a price tag of $2.41 million, your sweetie will certainly know exactly where that phone is. Clear service, not included.
