Most jewelry purchases the average consumer will make comprise items that are either highly practical or inspire daily wear—an engagement ring, an anniversary band, stud earrings, a talisman pendant.
There are other purchases, though less common, that are reserved for special occasions.
There’s no other time of year like the holiday season to inspire special occasion dressing, social calendars packed with opportunities to shine. The formula for that shine? Platinum, of course, paired with gemstones and diamonds with enough glitter and glam to rival the Christmas tree in Rockefeller Center.
Sure, treasures like these might spend a good chunk of the year in a vault, but that’s partially where they excel—the anticipation to wear these most luxurious creations rivals that of a child wondering what gifts might await them this year.
The gemstones and diamonds are no doubt the scene-stealers from this selection of affluent jewels, but they couldn’t be quite as luxurious without their platinum settings.
Below, an incredible assortment of once in a lifetime necklaces, made to be seen often and to last forever.
