Luxury Gifts: If you are seeking the ultimate Christmas gift for that special woman in your life, we've done some research for you and found an ingenious ways to present a special gift to her, all wrapped up in style. You can always count on a diamond as the perfect gift; but this year there will be an especially huge "wow" factor associated. It's been said that a diamond is a girl's best friend; however, you may acquire that title shortly after you present this gem to her.

Here's an opportunity to accompany a diamond on its journey from rock to stunning jewel, to put more meaning and history behind the dazzler that already speaks volumes when given to the one you love. You will travel to an open mine pit in the Kingdom of Lesotho in southern Africa (where a 603 white carat diamond was found in 2006 - the 15th largest ever discovered in the world) to witness the rock being removed from the earth in its raw element, following the extracting process first hand. Next, you will be taken to a diamond-cutting facility in Antwerp, Belgium, where an expert will consult with you on the different ways to cut the rough stone.

Back in New York City, Tiffany & Co. will lead you on a behind-the-scenes tour of its Fifth Avenue jewelry store, where you'll enjoy a visit to the workshop to watch craftspeople design and set jewelry. Melvyn Kirtley, Tiffany's head gemologist, will meet with you to discuss design options, being sure that the style reflects the taste of the person it is set for. Depending on the complexity of the design chosen, it could take from six to nine months to complete the masterpiece. It's a rare opportunity, as rare and unique as the woman you love.
