The light fantastic When it comes to chandeliers, it’s easy to be a bit of a traditionalist—at least until Maitland-Smith’s super-stylish crystal creation lights the path to your conversion. Complete with a circular cascade of more than 2,000 brilliant black and clear crystals and an elegant, almond-colored silk dupioni shade, it’s an opulent, trendy take on every well-appointed home’s most essential accent. $9,348, Wilson Lighting, (239) 592-6006.

2 Gray lady The announcement of a new Louis Vuitton handbag style or color is an event akin to one’s birthday; it’s not unexpected, yet it’s always a cause for celebration. So don your party hats for the arrival of the Alma PM, a slightly smaller version of the famed French fashion designer’s beloved two-handle tote. The PM’s classic lines are coolly complemented by Art Deco Gris, a newly introduced hue of monogram vernis leather that fascinates with its sleek, steely shimmer. $1,480, Louis Vuitton, (239) 254-0456.

Jet set To truly globetrot with gusto, grab your passport and reserve your sumptuous spot on a private jet tour. Lakani World Tours offers an array of such expeditions, including the three-week “Cultural Connections” trip, which begins in Asia and concludes in Europe, stopping en route at numerous countries’ cities and sites. Travelers enjoy every amenity, including passage on a custom-designed 757, a personal on-board chef, escorted tours and deluxe ground accommodations. $79,950 per person, double occupancy, Preferred Travel of Naples, (239) 261-1177.

4 Up in smoke Cigars are often reserved for celebrations, but occasionally the cigar is cause for applause. Zino Platinum Crown produced only 1,200 of its exclusive Emperor Edition cigars, and each five-inch Robusto boasts blended Dominican Republic and Nicaraguan fillers, a binder of unique proprietary hybrid tobacco, and a specially fermented Ecuadorian wrapper for a full-bodied, complex flavor. $230 per box of 10, Vicente of London, (239) 591-1169.   

Happy anniversary This year, iconic American jeweler Tiffany & Co. and international designer Paloma Picasso will mark three decades of glittering, glamorous partnership. Celebrate this anniversary with something from the Zellige collection, a line of bracelets, necklaces and rings that bear a spirited geometric design inspired by a tile pattern in Picasso’s Marrakesh home. Our pick is the white gold, diamond and black onyx Zellige bracelet, which has an almost otherworldly depth and glow. $56,000, Tiffany & Co., (239) 592-6188.
