And Now… A Raymond Lee Jewelers ‘Rapid Reporting‘: Scott W. Rothstein Auction PREVIEW!
Raymond Lee Jewelers President, Jeff Josephson, had been contacted by the Sun Sentinel shortly before this initial post, on behalf of Rick Levin & Associates, whose professional brokerage firm has been handling estate auctions for over 20 years. Josephson was contacted by the request of Mr. Levin, who wisely refrained from venturing a guess as to what the estimated value of key pieces of jewelry included in the Scott Rothstein auction block might be.
The Sun Sentinel reporter covering this intriguing ponzi scheme plot discussed with Mr. Josephson a few key pieces of this high-profile auction. Of those pieces, a woman’s fancy yellow 12-carat diamond ring, platinum diamond bracelet with 41 emerald-cut diamond and a 10 carat heart-shaped diamond pendant necklace were all given a general assessment. The fancy yellow diamond ring was estimated to be worth nearly a quarter of a million dollars, comparative to the cost of a “couple of Ferraris.”
These items, amongst a vast collection of designer watches and luxurious cigar accessories will be up for auction come July 13, 2011.
“With the Scott W. Rothstein Auction scheduled to take place at the Broward County Convention Center on July 13, 2011, featuring key items that sparked the interest of Raymond Lee Jewelers immediately, we will have at least one representative present, eager to purchase the glistening remnants of Rothstein’s estate.” June 10, 2011
