Modern Mens Jewelry Re-Ignited with Cuff Link Creativity!

The year of 2011 continues to prove that accessories are no longer particularly fashioned towards women. While nothing has been lost or overlooked in the fantastically futuristic and subtly sophisticated jewelry trends among women, the time for men to shine in their very own signature style spotlight has certainly arrived.

Mens accessories such as cuff-links, silk ties and vintage scarves have become an enhanced, exquisite way of displaying personalized style among modern men.

Fashion accessories have now dominated the world of men’s style.

Functional pieces with hints of both futuristic appeal and classic attribution are leading the pack of up-and-coming mens fashion accessories. In a world where mens accessories were recently limited only to subtle dome wedding bands and the rare spotting of a black chrome and stainless steel linked bracelet, modern mens jewelry exhibits more strength and style than ever before. Status statement pieces are bringing a charming swagger back to mens fashion accessories, and we are loving every moment of it.

New York’s Annual Sculptural Objects & Functional Art Fair (SOFA) will be showcasing a variety of these modern masculine creations between April 14th -17th, at the Park Avenue Armory. In artistic collaboration, Sarah Graham and llyn strong gallery will be introducing their latest creations at New York’s Annual Sculptural Objects & Functional Art Fair, along with sixteen additional incredibly talented jewelry and glass artists as part of this magnificent collection. In the ‘Mr. Graham’ mens jewelry collection, featured in the InStore Magazine Editors Picks in December of 2010, Grahams’ impressive foresight of this sweeping fashion trend is revealed. Delving a bit deeper into the wide world of unique cuff-link designs, a breakthrough trend in customized cuff links is booming in popularity. Some particularly creative personalized cuff-links include honey bees, lego pieces, sonogram photographs and mini re-creations of Nintendo game controllers. These daring, fun designs are a new option for men who desire a stylish, personalized look with cuff-links, while avoiding what may be an overdressed appearance. Alternatively, for those days when professional attire is mandatory, men are being drawn to cuff-link design creations that embody vintage timepieces. Literally. The designs which are continuously hitting home-runs with men who prefer a more classic approach to accessorizing are cuff-links that are actual vintage watch mechanisms, set on sterling silver hinges.

"Watch Works"

One approach to these fascinating male accessories that is growing in significant popularity is having a professional custom jewelry designer create a personalized pair of cuff-links. These artisans are known for their exquisite work with metal and gemstones, as well as the ultimate precision and quality design in creating or altering jewelry completely customized to the clients desires.

Omega DeVille at Raymond Lee Jewelers

Since 2006 Daniel Craig has become synonymous with the Omega brand of watches ever since he donned a tux and a  Omega watch in the James Bond movie, Casino Royale. There was much controversy over the decision to choose blond-haired Craig for the traditionally black-haired bond; what caused little controversy was the watch on Craigs wrist. This new bond needed a watch that was both masculine and elegant, the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean model 2900.50.91 was chosen. The Planet Ocean has a diameter of 45.5 mm and was on a sporty black rubber band with a black dial. This was the first time an Omega watch was shown in a Bond film with a black dial, all other Omegas had a blue dial. Later in the film Bond is shown wearing a Coaxial version of Omega Seamaster Professional with a blue dial model 222.80.00. In Quantum of Solace, James Bond only wears a Seamaster Planet Ocean 600 M  model 2201.50.00 with  Coaxial technology, black dial and a stainless steel strap.

Today Daniel Craig is one of Omega’s biggest watch ambassadors and is often seeing wearing some amazing timepieces from their collection. Lately he has been spotted wearing an Omega DeVille Hour Vision Blue. This is a special version of the DeVille which was created in support of ORBIS International and its fight against preventable blindness.

The beautiful wristwatch features a sleek steel case with a leather strap and a stunning metallic blue dial with a sun-brushed design. The stainless steel case is considerably more slim than Omega’s large watches such as the Seamaster, measuring 41 mm. The watch has Omega’s most celebrated movement, the Co-Axial caliber 8500 which is viewable through the sapphire crystal on the caseback. The model number for this new edition is 431.

ORBIS is an organization which delivers eye care to some of the world’s most remote and developing regions; founded in 1982 ORBIS has helped over 12 million people receive medical care. Omega has agreed to donate one million dollars from its sale of this special edition.

Raymond Lee Jewelers’ showroom has many Omega watches for sale at incredible prices. If you are not looking for a wristwatch we are also Florida Gold Store, we buy and sell gold at competitive rates.
