Gilty Couture is banking on a few of us coming through the credit crunch unscathed: it's launching a range of gold and silver-plated iPod cases costing from £49 to £189.

Described as iPod jewellery rather than mere cases, the Gilty Couture accessories are 14 carats and are available for the Apple iPod shuffle, the iPod nano 2G and 3G and the iPod touch and the iPod Classic.

The blingtastic selection of cases can be bought at AM Micro.
