Now, I've seen various blinged gadgets on Trend Hunter, but I really did not expect this kitchen appliance to be the next victim. Its a Swarovski-bedazzled coffee machine!
The Nespresso Crystal Edition Coffee Machine is covered with 3,100 Swarovski crystals and sells for £1,995 (about $4,000 USD). It features an illuminated collecting pan and you can control the temperature electronically.
This is a great machine to have by your side in the morning.
Implications - Luxury certainly does live on and the Nesspresso Crystal coffee maker is a great testament to that fact. Companies should recognize that some consumers have become more frugal, but other consumers are still looking to live and extravagant lifestyle.
