Our Guide: Luxury Gift Ideas

Sometimes, watching someone open the ultimate luxury gift is better than the feeling of receiving your own perfect present. Despite how well you know that special someone in your life, it can be difficult to know what to get for them. But when you do get it right, there is simply no greater joy! 

We’ve seen many successful gift exchange moments over the years… and we’ve learned a thing or two about what it takes to get hearts beating a little faster and eyes widening with wonder and delight. As a general guide, bespoke jewellery, handmade by local artisans and featuring Australian sapphires and precious stones makes a meaningful gift, whatever the occasion and whomever the recipient. 

A necklace, pair of earrings or a special ring will provide your loved one with not only a coveted accessory to add a touch of glamour to their look, but a wearable reminder of your feelings towards them - a sentimental token to keep forever. 

In this ultimate luxury gift guide, we’re sharing what we’ve learned about getting it right at Christmas time, for birthdays, special occasions, or just because. Here are our top five picks of the ultimate failsafe luxury gifts for the person with the most discerning taste.

Diamonds 

Square shaped or pear shaped, these rocks don’t lose their shape - diamonds are a girl’s best friend! Worn stacked alongside an engagement ring, or as a subtly stylish pinky ring, a gold stacking ring would become a favoured friend for any girl, and a few guys too. 

Featuring three petite, VS clarity diamonds to capture the gaze, this yellow gold Mosaic ring for $1,100 is sure to be unboxed with gasps of adoration and squeals of delight. Bringing everyday luxury to any daytime or evening look, its classic yet modern simplicity will never go out of style.

Sapphires 

There is nothing quite like the deep, enchanting lustre of an Australian Blue Sapphire, especially when accompanied by the bright light of a classic round cut diamond. This stunning 9ct Gold Australian Blue Sapphire pendant, is an ideal birthday present for a cherished friend, a push present for the mother of your child, or a milestone anniversary gift idea for a lover. 

Dangling with mesmerising allure from a contrasting sterling silver or white gold chain, it will add the finishing touch of luxury to a simple white shirt or cotton tee.

Pearls 

Offering a refreshed take upon the timeless appeal of a deep sea pearl, the “Twinkle" Tahitian South Sea Pearl Necklace, adds contemporary radiance to the neck, brightening the face with a fresh, youthful glow. 

This 18ct White Gold pendant features a top lustre, purple hue Tahitian drop Pearl. Offering the wearer a choice of which side to wear it on, the double-sided 'twinkle' top is set with a bright pink sapphire on one side and a white diamond on the other. 

Given their rare and universal charm, pearls are a must-have on any luxury gifting guide. Gifting this unique version at Christmas, as an anniversary gift, or milestone birthday will definitely delight your special person. It’s sure to earn you a place at the top of their nice list all year round!

Mokume-gane 

These "Ironbark" Mokume Gane Cufflinks, are a great way to treat a gent who has an eye for the finer details. 

Handmade using the ancient Japanese technique, these unique cufflinks feature a beautiful and beguiling mix of rose gold and palladium on a sterling silver backing. The swirled and layered pattern is reminiscent of the natural wood-grain of a Samurai sword handle. An extra special gift for Christmas or Channukah, a thoughtful birthday gift or meaningful anniversary present - there is no greater luxury than a bespoke piece of jewellery, and it’s not just the women who can appreciate the splendor of precious metal accessories.

Gold 

Gold for the holiday season, gold for a 50th Wedding Anniversary, gold for a milestone birthday - gold is always a good idea. Especially when it comes with the added gleam of some sunshine yellow tourmaline! 

Our "Eila" Gold Tourmaline Bar Drop Earrings are named after the Finnish artist Eila Hiltunen, most famous for sculpting the Sibelius Monument constructed in 1967. Similar to the stylised organ pipe structures of the monument, the precious stones dangle from delicate, 14ct gold ‘bars’ that cast a gilded glow across the face. Dainty and delicate, these earrings are a thoughtful present for any occasion, or indeed, just because gold.
