We've got you covered for the most luxe gifts.
Solari Planets Collection, $4,000- $19,000, David Yurman, The Forum Shops at Caesars.
With David Yurman’s new Solari Planets Collection, not even the sky’s the limit. Each planet is exquisitely crafted with cutting-edge techniques and lustrous gemstones meant to evoke the mysteries of the solar system. The sun glows with yellow and orange sapphires, while Venus is constructed by laminating precision-cut slices of white jasper and yellow gold. To mimic the rocky surface of Mars, upside-down cognac diamonds are used to stunning effect. This limited collection makes for a fascinating study in astronomy that will have your friends and family praising your gift-giving prowess to the heavens.
House of Harry Winston
Secret Wonder diamond necklace set in platinum, price upon request, Harry Winston, The Shops at Crystals
The iconic House of Harry Winston holds some classified information with its Secrets Collection. Each piece incorporates a hidden mystery known only to the wearer. The 29-piece collection was inspired by the fact that an iron-clad insurance policy forbade Winston from being seen publicly, and he often appeared in photographs as a mysterious silhouette. The Hidden Wonder necklace has a starburst of round and pear-shaped diamonds that rotates to reveal a symphony of sapphires, diamonds and aquamarines, giving new meaning to the phrase “more than meets the eye.”
Kelly mini in Bleu Saphir, $24,400, Hermès, The Shops at Crystals
This incarnation of the enduring and famously fabulous Kelly bag might be small in stature, but it goes the distance in style. Originally crafted in the 1930s, its modern rendition has been shrunk down, with just enough room to handle contemporary needs, like stowing a large smartphone. Nothing small-minded in that.
Piages & Cadenas Pavee

Brilliance goes unbridled in the latest breakout creations from top watchmaking jewelry houses. Treat yourself—or a very special someone—to a lustrous bejeweled timepiece this holiday season.
The gifting season wouldn’t seem right without a flash of sparkle and a dash of shine. Meant for dancing the night away, these showstopping evening sandals by Bruno Frisoni, called Feather Swirl, check all the boxes for a night to remember. But why stop with the embellished shoe? Continue the riot of crystals upward for maximum dazzle. In other words, minimalists need not apply.
