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

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.

Scott Rothstein Auction Preview: ‘Rapid Reporting’ Hot off the Auction Block via ‘Raymond Lee Jewelers’

‘Rapid Reporting’

Raymond Lee Jewelers has become an active participant in the Scott W. Rothstein estate auction, taking place on July 13, 2011 at the Broward County Convention Center in Fort Lauderdale, FL.

Raymond Lee Jewelers Arrival: Scott Rothstein Auction Preview

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

Why Don’t You Have These Headphones?!

These awesomely authentic Aerial7 Royale Headphones are made with genuine full-grain genuine leather, customized cushy ear cups and re-inforced aluminum outer ear housing.  Royale in every way, the isolated design blocks outside noise completely and speakers are equipped with superb 50mm drivers deliver the crystal-clear lows, mids, and highs. With precision sound quality, these radically retro looking headphones invite you to listen to music just the way it was intended! 

Powerful and plushy sound puppies, these headphones are seriously stocked with additional premiums for the snobbiest of music snobs. Included with purchase are a heavy duty, extendable coiled DJ cable, a lightweight cable with a mic for using with a cell phone, a 3.5mm to 6.3mm (1/4-inch) adapter, and a carry bag. For the amount of engineering and technical authority the Aerial7 Royale Headphones offer, the price of $399.99 is justified. (not Justin Timberlake ‘cry me a rive’ justified) Just… justified.

I personally wouldn’t be able to allow myself that kind of wallet leverage, as while I’m a music enthusiast, I do still rock my diskman and Sony walkman from the later 90’s.  My requirements for music quality are a little less… sophisticated. 🙂

For those of you that may feel the way I do, that these are simply totally rocking old school style headphones that I adore (and that my ears would love!), you’ve not been forgotten. WeAretheSuperlativeConspiracy, WeSC is at our rescue with retro unisex headphones fitting for vintage fashion and music enthusiasts with the Maraca seasonal headphones (picture below). Available for only $71!

Other awesome designs in accessories can be found in the recent collaboration collection of Bing Bang and WeSC (more at Refinery29.com)
