Peeling back a neatly wrapped present to reveal a pair of perfect shoes ranks high on our Christmas morning fantasies. What’s even better? Opening a velvet box with something sparkly and exceedingly decadent. From a starburst diamond ring to yards of rubies, our favorite dream gifts are shamelessly over-the-top — the stuff of Real Housewives franchises. So take a moment from panic shopping for last minute holiday presents and ogle some of the season’s most spectacular jewelry.
