Fit for a queen
Blue sapphire rings have a regal history – the most famous being Princess Diana’s ring, which Prince William gave to Kate Middleton when he proposed. Channel your inner royal with the 18-karat white and rose gold ring from Hardy Brothers – its 7.66-carat opal-cut sapphire is encircled by white and pink diamonds. Visit www.hardybrothers.com.au.
GET THE SKINNY
The thin but powerful HP Spectre is only 10.4mm in depth and made of a mix of slick materials such as carbon fibre. Its Intel Core processor ensures it packs a punch, while Bang & Olufsen speakers pump sound with clarity. Elegantly designed with the latest tech, this is about as glamorous as a laptop gets.

GUILTY AS CHARGED
By all means feel guilty about not recycling, not replying to invites or not giving up your bus seat, but if you’re sheepish about your need to splash out on a fragrance, at least let it be a guilty pleasure. Gucci Guilty is a warm, floral scent fusing pink pepper, lilac and amber and embodies Gucci’s distinctive, luxurious edge. Visit www.gucci.com.
In the dog days of Australian summer, when your delicate skin is buffeted by sand and surf, maintaining a dewy complexion seems a humanly impossible feat. Divine Woman Illuminating Day Cream provides protection from unforgiving elements when used as part of a daily hydration ritual. The certified-organic cream moisturises the epidermis, supporting age-defying collagen production and reducing the appearance of wrinkles. Visit www.thedivinecompany.com.
Much more desirable than the beads of sweat you accumulate at spin class, sparkling diamond droplets cover the petals of the Argyle Blossom pendant. The centre of its delicate bud and the blush of its folded petal are made of precious Argyle pink diamonds. Each of these collectable necklaces is individually numbered from one to one hundred with a bespoke box and certificate – J. Farren-Price has really turned on the charm.
