Buben & Zörweg Galaxy Safe: from $28,000

Perhaps one of the greatest safety features of the Buben & Zörweg Galaxy is that it looks more like an exquisite furnishing than it does a safe. Made of wood, leather, and high-gloss metallic paint, the safe comes in four customizable sizes and can guard jewelry, watches, art, and any other valuables. The safe also comes in two different styles—with such finishings as marble and mother-of-pearl inserts—and an optional SpotGuard tracking system. (buben-zorweg.com) —Kelsey Robertson
