Diamonds by Raymond Lee has arrived on a screen near you! After mucho hard work from the entire e-team at DRL and RLJ, our online store is live – just in time for the quickly approaching Grand Opening next month!

TBT: Vintage Eye Candy

So when this blog started, it was the official outpost of Raymond Lee Jewelers. And when RLJ started, we were exclusive sellers of estate jewelry. Over the past thirty two years, that selection has grown to include vintage, antique, and estate jewelry. This includes a portion of our engagement ring selection, like our beautiful antique engagement rings and our vintage pieces. Our in-house-designed engagement rings are new, as are our designer engagement rings. So expanding our engagement ring selection (to the point where we needed to open up an entirely new store!) meant that we focused more and more on Read More →

Thirsty Thursday: Lollipop + Lemon Drop + Lime Coat

Whew, today’s happy hour is a doozy. I’m mixing lemon and lime with my favorite lollipop flavor – Ippolita. Ippolita is having a moment, and arguably started off the slice jewelry trend a few years ago.

The new watch customers span age, race, gender and socioeconomic status – the increase brings fresh faces to every show looking for something unique, but still under the umbrella category of pre-owned watches. It makes sense that everyone from seasoned watch forum regulars to fresh MBA grads looking for their first real watch Read More →

Engagement Ring Eye Candy: Rose Gold Engagement Rings

Rose gold is one of my all time favorite metals. I prefer it to yellow gold when it’s worn solo or when it’s used in a two-tone piece. I am so thrilled that what could’ve been a passing trend stuck around. Its staying power, now at just over 5 years since it burst back onto the scene, means it’s readily available for the most permanent jewelry pieces of all: bridal. Rose gold engagement rings and rose gold wedding bands are gorgeous and coveted by both brides and grooms alike. There’s just something about a rose gold setting that can make Read More →
