Luxury jewellry maker Shawish has designed a collection of USB sticks far and beyond the usual market. Instead, the "Magic Mushroom" collection are all embellished with gemstones including diamonds, rubies and sapphires. 

Each USB key can hold up to 32GB of data. 

Some of the available mushrooms in the collection include a 9.18 carat diamond-studded USB stick, a ruby-studded mushroom weighing in at 11.34 carats, and a sapphire-inlaid version coming in at 11.34 carats. A magic mushroom coated in white gold and diamonds will set you back $36,900, rubies will cost you $24,400, and one studded with sapphires and white diamonds can be bought for $16,500.
