‘Tis the season of Advent calendars. From hard seltzer to socks and countdowns to Christmas featuring your favorite movie characters, there’s an Advent calendar for pretty much everyone. You can even get an Advent calendar for your dog.
If you want your holidays to really sparkle, however, the Harry Potter Lego Advent calendar just isn’t going to cut it. You, my friend, need diamonds. From Tiffany.
Tiffany & Co. has created an Advent calendar, and not only are they super-exclusive — there only four available for purchase — you’ll also have to shell out a cool $112,000 to buy one.
The Very, Very Tiffany Holiday Advent Calendar includes 24 trinkets from Tiffany, all wrapped in their signature Tiffany Blue color and housed in a replica of their Fifth Avenue flagship store. Inside the giant store replica are 24 individual doors, each holding a Tiffany item, ready to dispense a present each day of December until Christmas.
So, what’s in this incredibly expensive and chic Advent calendar? It includes pendants and bracelets to earrings, a pen and pencil set, perfume, a candle, a watch, holiday ornaments and other dazzling baubles. There’s even a sterling silver harmonica. Many of the items are 18k gold, and it looks like nearly all of them include diamonds.
For example, this rose gold link bracelet is in the Advent calendar. By itself, it sells for $14,000. The total karat weight is 1.70. In case you’re in the market.
The calendar weighs a whopping 355 pounds, and the 49-inch-tall cabinet will be assembled upon delivery to your home via Tiffany and Co.’s White Glove Service. Even the latches on the cabinet are high-end: It uses neodymium magnets for closure, so you have to be sure to keep it away from electronic devices susceptible to magnetic interference.
If you somehow happen to have $112,000 just waiting to be spent on an Advent calendar, you can order one by emailing Tiffany and Co.’s gift concierge.
If you don’t have that kind of cash, you can be like the rest of us and pick up a more reasonably priced calendar to countdown the holiday season.
For example, this Swarovski Crystals Advent calendar that is a bit more affordable. Regularly $179, it was only $49.99 at the publication time. It includes 24 different Christmas-themed jewelry pieces, some of which feature Swarovski Crystals, all of which seem merry and bright.
You can also find a few jewelry Advent calendars on Etsy, like this one from Glover and Greenwood Pearls that includes 24 days of pearl pendants to add to a necklace or charm bracelet. It’s selling for $86.88.
In the meantime, we might ask Santa for the Tiffany Advent calendar, but we won’t sit around wondering when a really big blue box will get delivered to our door!
