Available in yellow, red or white gold with white or black trim and with 59 diamonds in either a flower pattern or a scattered pattern, this Swiss made mouse is really something else. So what if it only has an 800dpi resolution and a total of three buttons, at over $20,000 it's the most expensive mouse on the planet!
