These aren’t exactly the typical vacation must-haves that you can throw in your raffia tote and leave on the beach while you wade out into sea. They’re more like what you’d be wearing while lounging on the deck of a 210-footer out on the ocean! Would you indulge in these luxe accessories for your next tropical getaway?

They’re so decadent they come in a leather display box that will rival the prettiest of jewelry boxes. On NET-A-PORTER for $730.
