THIS JUST IN
Wow the neighbors with this 100-foot dragon topiary, a living work of art by Matthew Larkin, will come complete with gold-leafed horns, claws, teeth and fins, and blown-glass eyes. Starting at $30,000 in the 100th anniversary edition of the Neiman Marcus Christmas Book.
Neiman Marcus catalog ushers in new fantasies
The Neiman Marcus Christmas Book debuted this week, marking the 81st edition of the luxury gift catalog.
In addition to jewels, fashion and home wares, NM followers always look forward to what whimsical, fantasy selections the retailer will come up with year after year.
This year, those fantasy selections -- need we say, for those who have everything and then some -- include a his-and-hers chocolate portrait (Bosco syrup on canvas) by Brazilian artist Vik Muniz for $110,000, a 100-foot-long dragon topiary for $35,000, a swami fortunetelling robot ($75,000), a Kirov Orchestra classical music concert presented in your hometown for you and 499 of your friends (close to $1.6 million) and an NM-edition Gem Triton 1000 submarine ($1.44 million).
And if diamonds are a girl's best friend, might as well get the biggest you can find. Up for grabs is a $1 million Diamond in the Rough necklace with a centerpiece of a 305.18-carat uncut diamond that sparkles with gold, green and amber tones.
Those with more down-to-earth budgets might find themselves joining the Juicy Couture charm-of-the-month club starting with a 14K gold-plated charm bracelet, with a seasonal charm edition sent to the recipient each month. The gift's cost is $495.
