The Premium Items of Gaia are classified as items that were obtained by purchasing from the Cash Shop with Gaia Cash. The first premium items were the Monthly Collectibles from 2003 (back then referred to as Donation Items), next were the items stocked in the La Victoire directly, then came Evolving Items in 2007 with the Rapid EIs following three years later. Later was the Gaia Aquarium items from 2008, and then the cash based Chance Items, which also appeared in 2007 but began to have notable themes and standard pricing at the start of 2009, these containers give out assorted prizes upon opening or playing them. The latest premium items are the Animated Items from 2010.

- Cash Shop items that are stocked directly, have a golden sparkle
- The sparkles appeared with the arrival of Mintaka and Rigel in May 2010. Their very presence covered items in sparkles, as they found the sparkling more appealing.
- The sparkles are in reference to the new system of determining what items are premium and which are not. This visual aid is meant to deter potential scammers and warn Buyers.
- An example of a scamming situation involved the MC Winter Rose and a gold shop corsage called the White Rose Wristlet Corsage. Due their appearance being so similar when it came to the thumbnails, there were many scams committed. With the sparkles now in place, this gives people a visual cue ahead of purchase.
