Christofle and LaCie have introduced Galet, an USB key with design by Christofle, a French luxury brand. It costs US$139 and comes with 4GB of storage.
Here’s how it’s described: “Hand-crafted in France, each piece is individually plated with precious silver through Christofle’s 150 year-old silvering process. Then it is carefully inspected for a smooth finish and radiant polish, which guarantees its excellence. The Galet is assembled and hand packed in a charming gift box at LaCie’s factory in Paris, ensuring each Galet represents the finest presentation and quality. Once the process is complete, the result is a timeless gift that will bring convenience and luxury to one’s daily life.”
The Galet includes LaCie’s Private-Public software with password protection. The Galet is available in Christofle boutiques worldwide, as well as the LaCie Online Store (http://www.lacie.com).
