Capucines Mini Handbag
An exotic bag makes a chic statement. Opt for Louis Vuitton’s Capucines Mini handbag in jewel-toned Taurillon leather with a shiny python skin top handle and two-way flap. The thick, statement strap is lined with python for added detail. Perfect for both day — with a cross-body strap — and night, with a top handle, it’s the ideal bag to wear from day to night. The bag also comes in a rich yellow-gold and emerald hue, both also with the shiny python detailing. The bag also has gold hardware and supple, calf-leather lining with ample, compartmentalized interior space. It’s the perfect gift for the holiday season.

Hamilton & Inches, Holyrood Palace Cuff
Scottish-based jewelers Hamilton & Inches has held a Royal Warrant as silversmiths to Her Majesty the Queen for more than 120 years, so needless to say they know a thing or two about regality. One of the best examples of its mastery is the Holyrood Palace Cuff. This elegant piece is made with 22kt Scottish gold and decorated with a solitaire emerald and pear-shaped tourmalines. The fleur-de-lys shape is an ode to the Auld Alliance held between France and Scotland in the 14th century, a time when a cuff such as this was worn as a symbol of strength, beauty and power.
