WHAT: Petrossian Alverta Caviar
WHY: Because you will always want to join The Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, or, at the very least, indulge in champagne wishes and caviar dreams. The iconic Petrossian family convenes every few months for a private tasting of its latest offerings, and at the recent gathering, they invited gastronomic superstar David Rosengarten to join them. His selections are then specially jarred and refrigerated until they reach peak condition. And this season's result is a delicious white sturgeon raised in California with a complex nutty and buttery taste (think Osetra) rumored to rival the best of the Caspian Sea. Plus, each jar is packed to order and will arrive the very next day. Surely this is a chic stocking stuffer if there ever was one! Throw in a bottle of Rosengarten's recommended Champagne, the 2002 Blanc de Blancs, Michel Gonet, and the perfect pairing is complete. Warning: All orders need to be placed by this Friday...
AVAILABLE: From $68 to $500, Drosengarten.com

WHAT: Jane Taylor Color Candy Frame Earrings
WHY: Frames are great, non? Some face framing layers lead to instant cheek bones, a picture frame can make a family heirloom look like a million bucks and a chic pair of frames can shield your eyes from the sun. Or, say, these pavé pink sapphires outlining sparkly rubelites. Prepare your lobes to get properly decked out!

WHAT: Antonio Berardi + Rupert Sanderson Gilia Suede and PVC Pumps
WHY: What does the term dynamic duo bring to mind? Perhaps the brilliant pairing of jeans and a T, or maybe a vision of Inez and Vindooh. Today, let's focus on what happens when Antonio Berardi and Rupert Sanderson team up to design a stiletto. Of course, it's absolutely gorgeous, but it's also a little sexy and very glamorous. With a touch of gold here and a peek of PVC, all tied together will sleek black suede, these are some aspirational steppers.
