Loewe's crystal-studded TV

High-end TV manufacturer Loewe has launched a 32in Swarovski crystal-studded 1366 x 768-resolution telly. Each of the 20 limited edition sets will be available in a black or white body and feature an internal hard drive for recording all your favourite jewellery shows.

Motorised stands that’ll effortlessly allow you to adjust the screen’s viewing angle while expending no effort can also be bought as an optional extra.

Only 100 of each colour machine are being made, but each will set you back around $1000 (£500/€640). Ah, to be rich…
