Luxury Gifts for the Season
By Mallory Evans Jacobson
While it’s still unseasonably warm in the City Beautiful, it’s nearing that time to cozy up around the (artfully decorated, not actually lit) fireplace and dole out some presents. Here are some gems that even the most discerning loved ones are guaranteed to adore.
This nostalgia-inducing heart charm necklace by David Yurman is guaranteed to wow any woman, no matter her age. With sparkling pave diamonds set in 14-karat gold, it’s the type of piece that is perfect for every day, dressed up or down.
Retail: $725. Nordstrom, 4310 Ponce de Leon Blvd., 786-999-1313.
Snow’s has a reputation for elegant, timeless jewelry that will not require a mortgage payment, but every once in a while they go super high-end – as with this stunning $100,000 diamond ring. Want to make a major statement? Snag this beauty – you deserve an upgrade!
Snow’s Jewelers, 270 Miracle Mile, 305-443-7448.
Off the Cuff
Any man in your life would be delighted to receive these classic cufflinks from Tiffany & Co.’s latest collection. Made from 18-karat yellow gold with diamonds, they add a touch of elegance to any outfit.
Retail: $2,900. Tiffany & Co., 342 San Lorenzo Ave., 305-529-4390.
Go for the Gold
As it’s been a fixture on the Mile for many years, heading to Jae’s Jewelers is a no brainer if you’re looking for an extra special gift. We’re especially drawn to this pair of 18-karat yellow gold and diamond ear crawlers by John Hardy, which can be worn several ways and make a major statement.
Retail: $795. Jae’s Jewelers, 237 Miracle Mile, 305-443-7724.
We’re not sure if this sleek new model is just getting you ready for the apocalypse or if it’s simply an invitation to off-road through the back tracks of the Everglades. Regardless, this Mercedes-Benz G-Class is all the rage, as it should be starting at $124,495.
