Updated on August 21, 2014

Gift Ideas for the Office or Den

Are you looking for a gift that is just a little bit unusual? One that would sit well in a den or office? Then you should consider one of these stylish gemstone world map globes. Here, you will find floor-standing and table-top models and all at the very best prices on offer online.

Who would love one of these beautiful little works of art? Well, teachers, anyone who likes quality d├ęcor in their office, or avid travelers, for starters. One of these beauties is a sure fire pleaser when given as a gift.

Each of these little works of art is set with semi-precious stones and each has an individual gemstone ocean.

I have one, and am quite fond of it. I think you'll really like yours, too.

Gemstone world globe - perfect gift for the office, study or den

This is a lovely little piece of art where black onyx has been used to create a great effect for the oceans of the world. In its gold-colored tripod stand. it is sure to sit nicely on any desk. It measures 9.5 inches wide by 9.5 inches deep and stands 10 inches high. Individual countries (and states!) have been carefully crafted with different colored stones and the whole set securely in a pretty metal stand. There is even a compass incorporated beneath the globe.

Table Top Models

A Good Thing - In a Small Package

Do good things come in small packages? Well, in this case, they surely do!

This mini globe is only 3 inches in diameter but crafted in fine detail using over 30 different kinds of semi-precious gems. The whole thing measures only 4 inches by 4 inches by 6 inches high. This is a great office gift that won't cost you the earth and still looks impressive. Perfect gift idea for the boss perhaps.

Gift Ideas for Him

Put the World on His Desk

Men can sometimes be hard to buy for. When you find something beautiful without being too frilly, you may have found just the thing for the gentleman who appreciates fine things. These 13 inch globes certainly fill the bill! They are the perfect size for an executive desk or bookshelf, and each one comes with a nice stand. I've shown this model in red, since that seems to be a favorite of so very many males. There are two other extremely attractive versions to consider, with oceans in your choice of either blue or black.

Red Ocean Gemstone World Globe with Gold 4 Leg Stand

I Love Mine! - And would be thrilled to get a big sister for it as a gift!


This is a photo I took of the little beauty that I got last year at one of the shops on board on the Freedom of the Seas cruise ship. I had been wanting a pretty globe for the longest time, and was very happy to find this special one and bring it home from my cruise.

It now sits proudly on a shelf with some other favorite travel mementos.

This one is fairly small, but as someone who really enjoys traveling, I can tell you that anyone who loves to travel would treasure one of any size.

A Beautiful Interpretaion of the World - Featuring Over 30 Colored Gems

This piece would make an ideal gift for the office, study or den. Inlaid with semi-precious gems, the globe itself measures only 9 inches, while the whole sculpture is 12 inches. It is set in a solid metal tripod with an inbuilt compass and the stand is coated with silver. In all over 30 different gems feature around the world.

Mother of Pearl Oceans - for a Light and Bright Look

Here, the oceans of the world are created with mother of pearl to give it a unique look. Each country is then picked out in different colored gemstones, hand crafted by skilled artisans over many hours. The 13 inch orb is set in a pretty stand. The stand is made of zinc metal with a gold coating that make this gemstone beauty stand out from the crowd. Since the whole thing stands only 21 inches high, it is ideal for a side table.

Good Fortune

It's believed a gemstone globe brings good fortune to any business.

Spin it three times each morning for good luck and a good day.

Special Illuminated Gemstone Globe - with Auto Spin

This is a light-up globe and boy does it light up a room! The inner light reveals the beauty of the inlaid gems and it also features an auto spin for even more effect.

It measures only 12 inches wide by 12 inches deep and is 16 inches high so it is perfect for any room. This is a decorative item that is sure to catch everyone's eye.


The World in a Ten Inch Sculpture - Featuring Lapis Lazuli Oceans

10 perfect inches in this sculpture. The predominant color is blue from the lovely lapis used to create the oceans, perfectly complimented by the gemstone countries. This table top world map will look great anywhere.

Floor-Standing Models

A Beautiful Standing Gemstone Globe - Hand Crafted for You

It takes over 2000 hours to make this particular model. The hand craft requires painstaking processes of mixing and grinding semi-precious stones and setting them in interlocking patterns. In all there are over 30 different gemstones from all over the world are used to make this stunning creation. Placed in a striking copper stand, the 13 inch globe is part of a structure that measures approximately 19 inches wide and deep and stands 36 inches high. This really is a gift to be proud of.

Black Onyx Globe - 36 Inces Tall

This gorgeous world globe features over 30 different semi-precious gems including a predominance of black onyx which makes the oceans look dark and mysterious. It stands 36 inches high and is securely mounted in a metal four-leg stand for stability. Obviously pure silver would not be sturdy enough to hold the13 inch globe so a zinc alloy has been used and then coated with silver to give it this unique look. Painstakingly hand-crafted this is a delightful gift to give or receive.

If I were in the market for another one, I think I would like one of the ones that stands on the floor. And I would want one with the oceans done in blue lapis, since I already have a small one with black onyx oceans.

Which one will you buy?

      These gemstone globes are beautiful. I would like to have one on my desk, if I ever get it cleaned off enough to make room for it.

      I've always been attracted to globes and particularly remember the one in the back of the classroom in grade school and then my cousins got one of their very own one year and I thought they were so lucky. Now, your gemstone globes kick it up a few notches and are beautiful, educational pieces of art and you seem to have a color for every décor preference!
