Join Raymond Lee Jewelers for a Verragio Trunk Show!

Are you in the market for an engagement ring? Do you want to be? Do you have a feeling your girlfriend or wife is going to gently guide you to the market regardless of your position on the subject? Great! Then you must join Raymond Lee Jewelers for our first ever Verragio Trunk Show on Saturday January 24th, from 10am-5pm in our Boca Raton showroom. While the store started carrying Verragio earlier this year (you’ll note my obsession on Instagram) we’ve pretty much just dedicated ourselves to filling the settings with as many diamonds as possible. And it’s not hard, customers visit Read More →

The 4 C’s 101

An easy visual guide to the 4 C’s. I’ve chatted before about The 4 C’s of Diamond Grading, along with the various differences between GIA and EGL certificates. And knowing your 4 C’s inside and out will ensure that you get the best deal on a diamond. But if you’re in a rush – or just getting started – a crash course in the 4 C’s in visual form might be just the thing to get your wheels turning.

Who’s Ready for Hanukkah?

If you’re readying the brisket and breaking out your Menorah, I’m wishing you a joyous Festival of Lights. If you’re still in the dark about what, exactly, Hanukkah/Chanukah is, exactly.

This Christmas: Inexpensive Designer Watches

The wrist watch is that rare gift that is stunning and impressive, but also a safe bet. Everyone needs more socks, but give someone a pair of socks for Christmas and watch the look of delight fade from their faces. Everyone needs to be able to tell time, and when you give a beautiful watch, their eyes simply light up.

Here are four of the Read More →

Thirsty Thursday: Blue Christmas

Happy Happy Hour! It’s the second best time of the week, Thursday evening, with Friday about to dawn in all of its TGIF glory. But let’s kick off the merriment early – I have the perfect thing to celebrate. This is an impeccable, jaw dropping, 66.05 carat aquamarine, certified by the GIA as octagonal, step cut and transparent. I know, gemstone reports just don’t have the same cache as diamond reports do, do they? But no matter – look at that color! And transparent isn’t effusive enough to describe the clarity. It’s D&D certified as crystal clear, like looking into the Read More →
