Before you call it a day with the holiday shopping, take a look at some of these most indulgent luxe loves we’ve found from Southern brands that we hold near and dear. Whether you’re in search of that perfect je ne sais quoi for a loved one or you have a holiday bonus that’s burning a hole in your wallet, consider these some of the best ways to spend your cash this holiday season.
Margaret Ellis open white topaz ring
For a showstopping gift idea, look no further than this stunning white topaz ring by Margaret Ellis. The sterling silver ring features 22-karat gold bezels, which house sparkling white topaz gems. This handmade ring will be a favorite for any lucky lady! Find it at margaretellisjewelry.com for $2,000.
Onyx mink hooded faux fur jacket
Luxury needn’t be denied due to an anti-fur stance. Donna Salyer’s Fabulous Furs, a Southern-based faux furrier, offers beautiful faux furs that provide both warmth and an elevated look that can be worn day or night, and dressed up or down. That’s why we love this faux mink jacket. Pair it with elegant evening wear or a more casual jeans and sweater look. Either way, it’s stunning! Find it for $499 at fabulousfurs.com.
Mule deer antler chandelier
If you want to give your home a post-holiday facelift, make it a remarkable transformation with an equally as remarkable light fixture. This statement-making piece is handmade by Kelly Maxwell, a self-taught woodworking artist and co-owner of Nashville-based Littlebranch Farm. The piece is made of naturally occurring “sheds,” and it has six lamps. Measuring 31 inches wide by 18 inches tall, find it for $3,375 from Littlebranch Farm.
Ceri Hoover holiday Hadley bag
Ceri Hoover bags are undoubtedly luxe, and that’s why we’ve included this, our seasonal favorite, on our Luxe Loves list! We love the special holiday edition of the Hadley bag, which is distinguished by its contrasting flap. The holiday version is covered in curly lamb hide, and it’s striking. Wear it as a shoulder bag, or remove the strap and it becomes a clutch. Find it for $495 at cerihoover.com.
