Some of the most ridiculous, but awesome, products available right now. 

There’s something about luxurious, innovative and downright ridiculously priced items that tend to intrigue and, in a way, leave us awe-inspired. Here, we’ve featured a little luxury “round up” that includes amazing diamonds, the best new way to experience sound, a book sure to give others coffee table envy and a watch that — as cheesy as it sounds — really is timeless. — Rachel Eleanor Sutton

1. SWAROVSKI Michael Jackson Book Cover — Considered more a work of art than a book, this limited edition hardcover contains 1,000 pages of fan farewell letters and a cover portrait of The King coated with over 3,000 Swarovski crystals. Only 5,000 limited “luxury” editions will be up for grabs and going for $7,499 each. Or, you can get the boring one with no flashy crystals for $59.

2. HARRY WINSTON Estate Diamond Lattice Bracelet — If any brand encompasses the word “glamor,” it’s certainly Harry Winston. “Inspired by the endless energy of New York,” the jewelry connoisseurs create art out of diamonds and push the limits when it comes to elegant design. Featured here is a classic, vintage bracelet that would make any wearer feel like royalty.

3. ANTELOPE AUDIO Rubicon Pre-Amplifier — Typically, we picture vinyl lovers to be locked away in their lofts or blaring classic rock at a local party. Now, Antelope Audio is taking that static noise to new whole new levels that will leave all vinyl listeners smiling from ear to ear. Also, the Rubicon “includes ultra-high sample rate A/D conversion,” put together with the high-resolution USB recording capabilities, users can experience the utmost luxurious sounds from their favorite tracks (while still maintianing the same “depth and warmth” of the original recording). With added DLNA streaming, you can also listen to songs from your wireless devices or computer through the high-sample rate DAC. This tech-lingo is a bit much, but our ears are definitely watering. It’s yet to be announced, however, rumors have it this gadget will go for around $10,000. After all, it is the world’s first 384 kHz converter, phono stage preamp and headphone amplifier with an integrated atomic clock.

4. TOURNEAU TNY Series Watch — Known for their remarkable watch services, Tourneau has recently introduced the world to their TNY series, “bringing modernity and modularity to traditional watchmaking.” We adore this classic silhouette, with a white wristband and muted, pastel color face. Perfect for an important meeting or event, or great for throwing on with a downtown-meets-daytime look, this is definitely a “we totally want it” luxury item.
