 Reporter Paul Brinkmann has been continuously publishing updates, following today’s

Scott Rothstein auction action. Once again, South Florida Business Report features Raymond Lee Jewelers. 

Right on, Mr. Brinkmann!

Ultimately, the auction was a great experience and lots of excitement surrounding the event certainly stirred things up as lines began to form of South Florida jewelry professionals, collectors and victims of Scott Rothstein’s massive ponzi scheme looking for vengeance, in any form.

A variety of interpretations surrounding the auction have published since this morning. Certain sources are elaborating on the fact that so many pieces were paid above retail value for. Other views within the local press maintained a collectors perspective, pointing out that some items can become collectibles because of the stories tied to them… This, I tend to agree with, even if the story is not all that pretty.

Rothstein Auction Acquired Piaget Watch

Although Josephson won less bids than he hoped, he says there’s a serious lesson here.

“It shows how ridiculous someone is when money is no object. I’m blown away by how many watches Rothstein owned, he has more than most stores have in stock. I hope the people who got burned are reimbursed,” says Josephson

And…

Ponzi schemer Scott Rothstein may be serving time, but his white gold Piaget watch sold for $77,500 on Wednesday.

Think that’s a lot? Around 1 p.m., a new auction high was set on a limited edition Concord watch for $100,000. There was also a white gold Franck Muller watch that fetched $47,500 and a Patek Phillippe watch that went for $61,000.

June Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair 2011

We have received word from the Raymond Lee Jewelers crew currently across the world, exhibiting at the June Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair 2011, the largest jewelry trade show in Asia.  Thanks to a few great bosses who took the time to keep us up in the loop checked in with us back here in The States with notations of observation on the unfolding trade show action, I have my hands on some very interesting  information and illustrious images of the June Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair 2011.

On this 23rd day of June, I am pleased to present you with with the following installment of jewelry industry trade show. . .

Rapid Reporting‘  .  by  .  Raymond Lee Jewelers 

There has been a buzz making its way through the jewelry industry in regard to an increased demand for antique jewelry. The proof of that surge was exposed on the first day of the June Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair 2011, as the antique jewelry section of the exhibition venue has doubled in size since last year.

I was informed that UBM had to split exhibitors of antique jewelry into two floors, in order to provide sufficient display and browsing room for both exhibitors and attendees of the show with a fixed focus on antique jewelry.

As reported by the Diamond News Center in Israel:

‘Hong Kong June Expo Sees Record Number of Visitors on Opening Day’

23.06.11, 13:46 

“The June Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair opened Thursday to record numbers of both visitors and exhibitors. Registration lines were longer than expected because of the high demand.”

“The exhibition’s organizers are pleased with this year’s show and say that it is hosting over 1,500 exhibitors from 37 countries, a 20% increase over last year.”

The June Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair, organized by UBM, has over 19.000 professional buyers from 100 countries. Although the June fair is smaller than the one in September, its strengths lie in the fact that the September Fair sales already start in June. In 2010 AWDC set up a group pavilion of over 500 m² and 41 exhibitors.

2012 Fashion Trends: Oriental Prints, Fur Trims and Short Hems Coming Soon!

Fashion Trends of 2012:

Expect to see prints of the Orient, Lace and Fur Trimming similar to the style of the 1920’s, and Mod Infused Early ’60s Hemlines

Thanks to great resources like Fashionising.com, getting a heads up on the next years fashion trends is within reach. While it’s still a bit early to predict what significantly different changes will take off with a fluster and what trends will fall as complete blunders in 2012, enough information is available to (at the very least). help us prepare the best way possible.

I can only hope that the biker-chic style that was so eminent in the stylings of 2011 remains steadfast as the year turns, as I still have to purchase both my motorcycle boots and jacket.  Of these two things… I have been virtual window shopping for the entirety of 2011.

Chanel Motorcycle Boots - Introduced During 2010 Fashion Week in NY

Philipp Plein Jacket - A MUST HAVE !!!

Now, that said.. Some new trends, both in prints, fits and hems are rumored to be big hits in the upcoming year of 2012. Of these, expect to see an increase in the street style wearing of Komono‘s, oriental prints will be more common, though expected to be a bit more subtle and floral in use. Exotic silks and authentic vintage Kimono’s would be great pre-planning purchases to be a well-prepared fashionista for 2012!

The vintage fashions of this year certainly will not die off and disappear, but they will morph just a bit. From the sophisticated ’70s style we’ve seen so much of this year, with the soft flowing curls and slinky fabrics, expect a shift into the style of the early 1960’s. We’re talking true Mod Girl stuff here, Peter pan collars, short hems, mod hair styles and the Twiggy fashioned eyeliner may be sneaking it’s way back into the fashion forefront.

This year has already opened itself up to many 1930’s inspired fashions, a trend heightened with the release of the Motion Picture, ‘Water for Elephants.’ For both Men and Women, there has been a throw-back to old-fashioned baseball caps, and early styled lace accented dressings for ladies. With the ‘Great Gatsby’ Film expected to be released in 2012, the same will be seen in relation to 1920’s Flapper Fashion.

Avoid costume like ensembles, as these will be easy to spot and difficult to avoid with an expected over-indulged availability of short black wigs and overdone Flapper dresses. Keep this classic trend modern by introducing the ’20s presence in your style in a minimalistic way. Wide-leg trousers and subtle fur trims are great ways to achieve this style without going overboard.

Wide-Leg Trousers

The Chanel 'Le Boy' (A MUST HAVE for 2012!)

The Chanel ‘Le Boy’ is the ultimate glamour bag, with the classic golden braided strap, and intricate lettered perfection of ‘CHANEL’ stitched along the bag’s wide end, these little puppies will be booming in popularity… I want the red one, bad. Already. 🙂

Fashionising.com: Chanel 'Le Boy'

So, there you have it. A few fashion predictors to help you ease your way into a fashionable 2012 from start to finish. Now, we’ll get to what’s pressing currently, which is the preparation for bathing suit season, of course! Get ready for high waists, retro cuts and prints, the return of the one-piece (with a twist), and the early signs of the 1990’s fashion comebacks…
