When most of us jewelry hounds think of a black diamond ‘ring‘, we conjure images of the rock Carrie got from Big in the last Sex And The City flick or something Kat von D is likely to sport on her wedding day, right?

But Gresso is giving us another interpretation to put on the covet list:  an iPhone 4 bedazzled with 6 carats of black diamonds (and 13 carats of white diamonds for good measure).

The luxury mobile phone manufacturer unveiled the new “iPhone 4 Black Diamonds for Lady” targeted squarely at the superior sex for an unamed sum and in limited quantities available online or with the official Gresso dealers.

The ear candy is encased in 200-year-old African Blackwood, combined with black and white diamonds, platinum and 18K rose gold with black diamond edging.

Going by carat-count alone, we’re talking hundreds of thousands for a tricked-out text machine that you’re likely to leave on the bathroom counter of your local watering hole or forget in the airport lounge or…(insert your own missing phone horror story).

But you’ll look fabulous while you try to navigate your way to the nearest Starbucks.

Looking for an escape from the John Edwards debacle and the endless Olympic coverage of weightlifting and badminton? Imagine yourself on the beach in St. Tropez. George Clooney is applying your suntan lotion while you call Diddy to confirm the dress code for the yacht party that night. White again? Fine. You hang up and slide your coveted iphone 3G into its rightful resting place – a genuine leather, diamond encrusted carrying case.

Been there done that? How about a case with not one, not two, but 6.7 carats of brilliant-cut diamonds imbedded in the shape of a sun and moon. That’s 272 gems in all. Luxury case manufacturer, Noreve St. Tropez, is offering this little trinket for a mere $14,990. Chump change, darling. Oh, you want it in pink? You got it. In fact, you can choose from 15 different colors – one to match your every mood.

“This case is yet another step we are taking to help the Noreve brand become one of the most unique and recognized case manufacturers in the world,” said Sam Brust, Vice President of Sales for NoreveUSA. “We look forward to working with additional types of precious stones in our future designs.”

Give us a ring once you do that, Mr. Brust. We’ll just be here on the beach with George…and Brad…and Javier….
