Both are i55 items with identical stats, however the Gavel requires a butt load of work while the latter one is free.
Is there anything special about the gavel? Does it glow or something while you use it?

Thanks!

It's gold and it shows up on your back. It was the only option in XIV 1.x for an "ultimate tool" and it was meant to get as you did your typical leveling, so there's no difference even though for some reason people want the Luminary tools to be boosted even though it technically only exists for 1.0 players that carried over.

You can still get Luminary tools in 2.0 the achievement structure is there and attainable but it does require an inordinate amount of pure grind. That's fine but I think the Luminary should be like... Relic +1 in the gathering world at least. I don't have a Luminary on my new character since I dumped my Legacy character but if I'm going to work towards something that is a monument to "poke the rabbit 10,000 times." it should reward something superior to the item you get for falling into 50.

The significance of Luminaries now is that they are the "Hard" item to get. Whether they will serve any other purpose in the future, or just become outdated relics of 1.0 is yet to be seen.

But, you can be sure that the level cap will raise, and when it does, there will be items better than both. As of now, you need that level of an item to complete some of the crafts out there, whether that was the right decision (and to allow for people to obtain the item that easily) is really more of an academic debate.

If you get HQ on all of your class specific lvl 50 gear, slot in control and craftsmanship materia to taste, you will be able to craft 2* recipes without needing the luminaries. But the luminaries, (and food) help if you are missing materia or do not have hq.
