    Interest in Thomas Heyerdahl Jeweller’s diamond-draped iDiamond iPod shuffle reportedly is so keen that the Oslo jeweler felt compelled to perform an encore. Hence, Heyerdahl has announced the iDiamond ear, a pair of ear buds crafted by Diaro Digital Design in 18-karat white and rose gold, etched by lasers, and encrusted with 204 diamonds totaling 1.65 carats. Heyerdahl says only 1,000 pair of the $6,400 iDiamond ear will be made. But that is mass production compared to the unique iDiamond shuffle, the sole example of which is scheduled to be auctioned for charity in March. (+47 22552525, www.heyerdahl.no)
