During the holiday season, only the best will do for the special women in your life. Acknowledge her fine taste with a gift that meets her exquisite style. The following are some of our top picks for the 2012 holiday season:
High Jewelry Egg Pendant
What woman doesn’t want a Fabergé egg? Now you can give her a one-of-a-kind, bespoke Fabergé in the form of a High Jewelry Egg Pendant from the Les Fameux de Fabergé line. Each pendant pays homage to the renowned Imperial Eggs that Peter Carl Fabergé created for the Romanov family and embraces a different traditional Russian proverb within the layers of its craftsmanship. One of the luxe pendants that she’s sure to love is the Diaghilev Egg (L’Oeuf Diaghilv), inspired by Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes. Made of 18 carat white gold, this object of desire contains 24.14 carats of rubies encircled by 2,012 diamonds. The necklace also drips with sapphires and moonstones. The diamond drawer at the center of the egg pendant is invisibly set and opens with the push of a gemstone button to reveal a matching pendent. (http://www.faberge.com/Splash.aspx)
Georg Jensen Ambassador Candle Holder
Carrying on the tradition of the famous Danish silversmith, you can only find the Georg Jensen Ambassador Collection of tableware at exclusive retailers. The Ambassador Candle Holder epitomizes the classic voluptuous representations of nature in Jensen’s original Art Nouveau heirloom pieces to give you enduring opulence that will never diminish in beauty or value. The handcrafted sterling silver candle holder is an elegant piece on its own, or a marvelous companion to the Ambassador Grape Bowl table centerpiece and the matching Grape Cup.

Prada Traveling Office
For the woman who is into haute couture and always on the go in her private charter jet, give her Prada accessories from the Saffiano leather collection to help her complete her traveling office. Prada pairs chalk-white with Baltic blue accents in the form of roses to create a leather-embraced 8 GB USB flash drive keychain, leather clutch, rose pen and an iPad cover. The Saffiano leather clutch comes with gold-plated hardware and makes the perfect pencil tote. The Nappa leather lining in the Saffiano leather iPad will keep her tablet luxuriously protected. The leather clutch and iPad cover are also available in black with red leather roses. (http://www.prada.com/en)
Jimmy Choo Clutch
The beloved designer of women’s shoes also makes swoon-worthy handbags to go with any occasion. Treat the gift recipient on your list with the Claire, a small metal clutch that fits perfectly in the palm of a hand. This evening clutch dazzles with the multi-colored crystals that line the outside of the bag. The red, black and dark baby-blue stones make this clutch the perfect accessory for her upcoming New Year’s Eve party. (http://us.jimmychoo.com/en/us/evening/claire-/invt/122clairemmtc/)
Iron Orb Crystal Chandelier
If you’re covered in the jewelry department, add some extra sparkle to her home with Restoration Hardware’s Foucault’s Orb Crystal Chandelier made with “rustic” iron. The chandelier honors the 19th century physicist Léon Foucault and his gyroscope by creating a double-gimbal iron frame that creates an openwork globe that encompasses the display of precision-cut crystals. The chandelier uses teardrop candelabra bulbs that are complemented by bobeches and candlesticks to give the lavish light fixture a classic period look. Also available is the Foucault’s Orb Crystal Chandelier with polished nickel. (http://www.restorationhardware.com/catalog/product/product.jsp?productId=prod710181&categoryId=search)
