Belluso at The Palazzo.
After a winning streak at the casinos, how better to blow your windfall than by investing in an array of blinding baubles? If you’re feeling lucky in Sin City—and are known for your discerning, sophisticated taste—grab your cash and head straight from the tables to Bellusso, the ultimate destination in Las Vegas for fine jewelry and elegant timepieces. From its prime location on the first floor of the überluxe Palazzo Resort-Hotel- Casino, Bellusso showcases premium brands as well as rare and limited-edition pieces that are often hard to find anywhere else in the US.
After entering the sleek space, the fellas will surely be drawn to the glittering watch displays lining the store—where Breguet, Cartier, IWC, Harry Winston, Vacheron Constantin and other powerhouse brands are all featured under the same roof—but the ladies might veer to the Kwiat section or sparklers from Bulgari, Van Cleef & Arpels and Carrera y Carrera.
High-rolling shoppers are invited to take advantage of the lavish experience and cosseting service provided by the Haute Room, a sumptuous private area that houses Bellusso’s most exclusive (and coveted) watches. Quaffing top-shelf drinks from the chic Ralph Lauren-designed bar and puffing on a cigar as you discuss the finer nuances of a Parmigiani Fleurier with the store’s highly knowledgeable, passionate staff—now that’s what we call a good time. The Palazzo Resort-Hotel-Casino, Casino Level, 3325 Las Vegas Blvd. S., Suite 1702, 702-650- 2988; bellussojewelers.com
