This is no chocolate countdown calendar. Tiffany & Co has released a limited edition advent calendar – and it may just be the most luxurious advent calendar in the world.
The four-foot tall Tiffany blue box was designed to replicate the Fifth Avenue flagship store in New York, complete with a hand-drawn exterior. A covetable gift is hidden behind each door, making for an incredibly lavish countdown to Christmas.
“From our most desired jewellery to witty everyday objects, each day holds a new luxurious surprise you’ll only find at Tiffany,” the website explained.
Treats from the maison’s T collection as well as unique items are some of the 24 surprises filling the advent calendar.
Individually wrapped in iconic Tiffany blue boxes, some of the glamorous pieces include the Tiffany T Extra Large Smile Pendant in 18 karat rose gold with diamonds (A$11,600), Tiffany HardWear Link Bracelet in 18 karat rose gold with diamonds (A$23,100), Tiffany Victoria Platinum Earrings with marquise diamonds (A$28,100), Sterling Silver Harmonica (A$695), Tiffany 1837 Makers 22mm Square Watch in stainless steel with diamonds (A$8,950) and Tiffany T Two-Hinged Bangle in 18 karat rose gold with pavé diamonds (A$24,800).
The opulent US$112,000 advent calendar is a first for the company’s 182-year history and will be assembled with a white glove service upon delivery to the lucky recipient.
The Ultimate Advent Calendar is the first of 12 indulgent gifts the luxury jewellery empire will be releasing through its holiday season collection. According to WWD, there will also be a US$130,000 Kenya trip for two, while US$1.75 million can buy an 8 carat diamond that includes a personal design consultation with Reed Krakoff, Tiffany & Co’s chief artistic officer.
“This holiday we wanted to really surprise our customers in a whole new way by showcasing the most awe-inspiring objects and experiences that you can only find at Tiffany,” Reed told the publication. “In addition to many exciting new designs and collections, this year we’ve curated 12 gifts that represent the best of the best and embody the artistry and craftsmanship at the heart of our brand."
