This December no taste is too grand. A fantasyland of luxe decadence and glamour is on our holiday wish list—specifically jewels that live behind glass cases of perennial "oohs" and "ahhs." Spend the holidays dripped in diamonds with these once-in-a-lifetime gifts.
Venetian Quatrefoil Wide Cuff Bracelet with Diamonds, David Yurman ($35,000). Bal Harbour Shops, 9700 Collins Ave., 305-867-1772
This 18-karat gold bracelet by David Yurman is a good enough reason to get cuffed this holiday season. A generous amount of pavé diamonds adds sparkle, while Gothic-inspired design elements make this timeless piece wearable for just about any occasion.
If nouveau simplicity is more your style, feast your eyes on this dazzling bracelet from Messika’s Glam'Azone collection. Make this your everyday luxe staple and the compliments won't stop coming. (Owners include the Queen Bey herself, who rocked this piece on a recent trip to Paris.)
Those on Santa's very nice list deserve something exquisite, like Buccellati’s regal emerald-and-diamond set. The laurel-leaf motif holds 11 oval-cut emeralds and so many diamonds that onlookers won't be able to take their eyes off it.
Mademoiselle Privé Watch with Jardin de Camélias Decor, Chanel ($128,000). Bal Harbor Shops, 9700 Collins Avenue, 305-868-0550
Every woman needs some Chanel in her jewelry box; why not ask for a piece that practically oozes opulence? With only 18 of its kind, this Chanel stunner features an 18-karat white gold case fitted with 552 brilliant-cut diamonds, plus an additional 254 diamonds on the camélias dial.
Equal parts nostalgic, youthful, and luxe, this is the most expensive teddy bear you’ll ever own. Have fun with the movable head and arms on this Crazymal—a character from de Grisogono's playful animal collection—made from 302 brown diamonds and two pink sapphires set in yellow gold.
