A spokesman said: 'Diamonds have always had a special place in our hearts, and now they will cover our laptops.
'This is made of more than 8,800 round cut diamonds that are graded VS clarity and F in colour, each with their own, unique certificate of origin.
'The opening is protected with rare black sable fur from Siberia.This laptop sleeve is absolutely a lover's and collector's item!'

Peter van Soldt, chief executive of
CoverBee, joked: 'We are a little crazy here, but only thanks to this
attitude we can design brilliant products.'
Asked who is likely to stump up the money for the sleeve, he said: 'History has proven that the more extravagant and crazy the product is, the more likely it is that there will be someone out there who appreciates it and will want to buy it.
'Besides… accessories have always been popular across all cultures and ages, and so has fine jewellery. This makes our new Diamond Laptop Sleeve design a must-have for collectors!'
CoverBee needed just over two years to perfect the design, needing to find a way to stitch the diamonds onto the sleeve.
The spokesman explained: 'This is no easy task, as there are thousands of diamonds to work with and they have to ensure the strength of the Sleeve on all sides.
'However, the method has been developed and the sleeve with it's eight-thousand eight-hundred diamonds will have the strength of any other sleeve.'
He said one additional problem remained: 'The Diamonds could scratch the laptop at the opening. The solution for this was to include a rare black sable fur at the opening of the sleeve.
The fur not only made for a beautiful design, but it also feels great in your hand as you insert your laptop.'
For people concerned about animal welfare the spokesman explained: 'CoverBee never kills animals and if using animals at all, only animals which died of a natural cause.'
