Sneak Peak:

Jeff Josephson: This has been a year of two extremes, neither one is overpowering the other just yet but I suspect as the year progresses and as fashion continues through the 70’s style evolution we can expect larger, bolder pieces to begin to overshadow more delicate designs.

Kate Middleton: Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed and Something Blue

Prince William & Kate Middleton Wed at London’s Westminster Abbey

Kate Middleton Radiates

As of Friday, April 29th, the long-term romance between Will and Kate becomes official Monarch History. The couple was officially titled by Queen Elizabeth the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. A graceful and glamorous Kate Middleton and handsomely proud Prince William remained impressively composed, appearing to be in complete adoration of one another as millions of onlookers crowded the streets of London, and tuned in from across the pond to catch a glimpse of the Royal Wedding.


A million people roared their approval as the royal couple then paraded through London in an open carriage.

Queen Elizabeth in Canary Yellow Angela Kelly

:UPDATE:

In a charming canary yellow ensemble, Queen Elizabeth exhibited her Royal Style on Friday. The Queen wore an Angela Kelly single crepe wool dress design with hand sewn beading. Pinned to her matching double crepe wool tailored primrose coat was Queen Mary’s True Lovers Knot diamond brooch. Her hat with silk roses — also designed by Angela Kelly — was a lovely addition to her outfit. Ladylike accessories like white gloves, pearl necklace and white handbag added a timeless elegance.

The wedding of the century is quickly coming upon us and speculation about every aspect of the wedding is ratcheting up. Gossip rags and major newspapers alike are desperately trying to dig up any information about Prince William’s and Kate Middleton‘s upcoming nuptials. With an expected one billion or more viewers, it is no wonder the media is desperate for the slightest bit of information on the wedding.

One question that everyone seems to be asking is wither or not the Queen will lend Kate a tiara from her royal collection. We all ready know that something new will be her wedding dress, something 0ld and blue will be Princess Diana‘s brilliant ring which features 18 ct. blue sapphire center stone surrounded by colorless  diamond accents in platinum. What we don’t know is what her something borrowed will be. It is widely thought that the Queen will lend Kate one of her tiara’s which would be fitting since Princess Diana wore a tiara to her own wedding as well.

Kate Middleton comes from a family of commoners, and like many of us does not have any royal jewels floating around in her family. If Queen Elizabeth II did lend her royal tiara to Kate it would signify that she approves of the marriage. This would make it an official proclamation that the Queen has no objections to their union and finally put to rest the many rumors that are swirling around the England Country-Side.

The Queen has an extensive collection of tiaras in her royal collection, eight in total. One of the most beautiful is the Vladimir Tiara, which was smuggled out of Russia by a British diplomat in the 1917 revolution. This tiara features fifteen Cambridge emeralds, teardrop pearls and a stunning array of diamonds. Another beautiful tiara is the King George IV State Tiara. This incredible piece has 1,333 diamonds weighing a total 325.75 carats, and has 169 pearls along its base.Queen Elizabeth received the tiara from her mother on her 18th birthday.

Middleton's diamond earrings designed by Robinson Pelham

:UPDATE:

Her tiara, (Cartier), was made in 1936 and was purchased by The Duke of York (King George VI) for his Duchess (The Queen Mother) three weeks before he succeeded his brother as King. The significance of Kate Middleton wearing the Queen’s tiara on Friday is of great importance, symbolizing the emotional bond between the Queen and Princess Catherine.

The tiara sat upon Kate’s whimsically styled half-up, half-down brunette locks, holding a veil of ivory silk tulle and a trim of hand-embroidered flowers. The beautifully blushing Bride wore an Alexander McQueen wedding gown designed by the British brand’s creative director Sarah Burton.

One element of this historic wedding that the media outlets are buzzing over wildly is the jewelry worn by Kate Middleton on her and William’s Big Day. Rave reviews from fashion critics include the acknowledgement that the commoner exhibited stylish Royalty by blending together various time periods of jewelry in perfection.

The pave-set acorn diamond centered earrings worn by Kate Middleton were a Wedding Gift for the new Bride from parents Carole and Michael Middleton. The Robinson Pelham designed pear-shaped earrings were inspired by her family’s new coat of arms, and one of the pieces that are receiving press praises.

“Catherine’s jewelry epitomizes the modern yet timeless bride — she successfully blended elements from several eras together,” jewelry expert Michael O’Connor tells Us. “Her platinum and diamond pear-shaped drop earrings are very much in trend right now, and demonstrate a chic princess style. Catherine’s platinum and diamond tiara borrowed from the Queen is a nod to the past and shows the emotional bond between Catherine and her new family. And of course, the stunning blue sapphire engagement ring added just the right pop of color and was a nod to William’s mother.”

Masculine Monday: The Modern Mans Money Clip!

Every Monday Raymond Lee Jewelers will be presenting you with a new post regarding modern men’s jewelry. Last week, we took a sneak peak at the detailed the amazing new futuristic trends that are sweeping through the male cuff link market.

Read more here on the wide array of vintage, playful and personalized cuff link creations that are spiking in popularity among fashionable men these days…

This week I wanted to focus on the money clip, which has gained a resurgence in popularity in the past couple years. The traditional money clip was invented in the early 1700’s as a response to England’s introduction of paper currency ten years earlier. Over the next quarter century paper currency would spread to other western civilizations and so would the need for a simple yet effective way to hold a stack of bills.

Today, we are seeing some of the top jewelry brands in the world creating money clips that are both visually and functionally stunning. The days of drab money clips with no artistic merit are long gone.


One brand that has really breathe new life into the modern money clip market is Coach. Coach has recently introduced a collection of money clips that are competitively priced and have an understated elegance. This new collection features nickel money clips with luxurious blue or silver leather inlays, signature Coach Cs with a smooth enamel finish or a chic plain clip that has the Coach logo and the company’s founding date.

Cartier Money CLip


Other jewelers have released exceptional pieces as well. Cartier has a beautiful palladium finished money clip with a black calfskin leather inlay. Gucci who has always been known for their leather have created guccissima leather money clip wallets in military green with military green leather trim and interior. Bvlgari and Tiffany & Co. have strayed away from leather and instead have focused on sterling silver.
