Designer Jonny Vavas of Vavas Diamond Eyewear has introduced a "signature line of hand created diamond sun glasses" that range in price from $1,200 to $10,000 depending on how many carats.

In case the diamonds aren't enough, they promise exclusivity -- only 60 pair are created per month for sale. They also boast that they sport UV400 protection and shatter resistant polycarbonate lenses.

Can you imagine how pissed you would be if you lost your pair?
