Hats off to the Royal Wedding! (via Beauty of a Site Blog)

Thoughts on these hats from anybody? Came across this Blog Post by Beauty of a Site Blog, and thought I’d attempt to gather a public opinion survey from our readers. I, for one, don’t know that I’d even classify these head sculptures as hats. In order to pass as a hat, some sort of coverage needs to provided, right?

Maybe I’m just not fashion-forward, and everyone will be walking around town with circles and bird beaks on their head while I’m still looking for my white scruncci. I need feedback here. Are these hats? And would you wear one? If so, please send a photograph 🙂 Thanks!

J.Aniston Looking Great Wearing Men's Rolex!

Rolex Watch - Mens

Jennifer Aniston: Proves Herself a Fashion Icon Once Again

The newest watch trend is women wearing luxury watches with large cases, 40 mm to 45 mm, sizes normally only found on timepieces meant for men. Jennifer Aniston is taking it up a notch and has started to wear actual men watches. The celebrity movie star, who at one time was so famous she spawned her own haircut, was recently seen wearing a mens 18kt yellow gold Presidential Day-Date.The Day-Date with the Presidential bracelet was famously worn by many United States Presidents and other dignitaries, so its presence on such a young and feminine wrist is very uncommon. Florida Jewelry.

I personally think that Jennifer Aniston looks amazing with the watch, and its presence creates an upscale look even when wearing an every-day outfit. The Rolex with its champagne dial, bold roman numerals, day- date display and a fluted bezel makes an already stunning piece even more eye catching. There is a reason this watch has been one of Rolex‘s most popular for decades.Ms. Aniston is a well known Rolex collector and has been known to wear smaller Rolex watches as well.

A brand new Presidential Day-Date is about $23,000, here at Raymond Lee Jewelers we sell the same model, pre-owned for around $8,000! That’s a $15,000 difference for a watch that is in like new condition.

Rolex Watches: Time to Invest

Exquisite Timepieces.. Ahead of Their Time 

Rolex watches have been an icon of ingenuity, precision and craftsmanship since the early 1900’s. It was over a hundred years ago that Rolex wristwatches designated the ultimate compass of quality and design in timepieces. Over a century of accomplishment and innovation by Rolex watch designs include chronometer certification, self-winding mechanisms, automatic time calibration and quartz movement. A name synonymous with luxury and precision, Rolex is the largest single luxury watch brand and among the 100 most valuable global brands.

Rolex Deep Sea

Founded in 1905, “Wilsdorf and Davis” began manufacturing and distributing wristwatches to jewelers in surrounding areas of London. Hans Wilsdorf and brother-in-law, Alfred Davis officially changed the trademark to “Rolex” in 1908 and opened an office in Switzerland. Rolex received the first ever Official Chronometer Certification to be awarded to a wristwatch just two years later. Becoming the first in 1910, Rolex remains the record holder today for most certified chronometer movements in wristwatches.

Hans Wilsdorf and Alfred Davis continued breaking records with the exceptional precision of Rolex wristwatches, awarded with a Class “A” precision certificate in 1914 from The Kew Observatory in Great Britain. The flawless designs of remarkable engineering are seen as clearly today as they had been recognized on those infamous early decades of the 20th century. Rolex wristwatches are certainly standing the test of time, with continued innovation and impeccable quality.

A previously-owned Rolex watch has been revered and suggested as one of the wisest investment choices in both England and America. With retail prices for brand new models rising, there has been an increased popularity and availability of previously-owned Rolex watches. Rolex watches, particularly GMT-Master, Daytona and Submariner models have proven to maintain, and often rise in value over time.

Rolex Wristwatch

As consumers, we may never see a more fitting time to invest in a classic timepiece by Rolex. With jewelry retailers offering previously-owned Rolex watches with CW21 certification at remarkably affordable rates, it is undoubtedly time (no pun intended) to invest in a previously-owned luxury Rolex watch. The time to invest in a Rolex is at an all time high for luxury previously owned models. Raymond Lee Jewelers prides itself in being an industry leader in luxury pre-owned watches.  Located in the heart of Boca Raton, Florida, Raymond Lee Jewelers can offer the best value high end watches on the web.

Whether purchased for a loved one (this includes you), or for future use as a family keepsake, there has never been a better time to invest in a previously-owned Rolex wristwatch. As the ultimate emblem of innovation, accomplishment and cultural heritage, a previously-owned Rolex watch is not only a wise investment, but a sentimental and symbolic one as well.

Celebrate St. Patty’s Day By Wearing Green… Emeralds!- Florida Jewelry

Florida Jewelry

Florida Jewelry

Today the U.S. has been inundated by the color green; beer, clothes, food and even rivers are all green in celebration of Saint Patrick’s Day. St. Patty’s Day was originally a religious holiday celebrating Saint Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. Today Saint Patrick’s Day has become more of a celebration of Irish culture in general.

There is more to Saint Patrick’s Day than just drinking copious amounts of beer such as the tradition of sporting a three leaf clover. Which gets its origin from the fact that Saint Patrick used a three leaf clover to explain the Holy Trinity to the pagen worshipers he was trying to covert. Another tradition closely tied to this holiday is wearing the color green, which can trace its origins all the way to 1798. It was in that year that the Irish rebelled and donned full green uniforms in hope of gaining widespread public attention. Florida Jewelry.

This year why not get into the holiday spirit by donning green emeralds as well as green clothing. Emeralds have a variety of meanings or interpretations in different cultures. For instance, emerald is associated with the astrological signs of Taurus and Cancer. It is also regarded as the birthstone of the month of May. In some cultures, the gemstone is a traditional gift for the 55th wedding anniversary of couples.

Some of the top brands in the jewelry industry are releasing collections that feature rich green emeralds. Cartier’s newest collection Panthere which focuses on extremely detailed brooches, pendants and other jewelry pieces that often feature wild cats with emerald eyes. Tiffany and Company‘s Elsa Peretti Color by the Yard also features green emeralds. If you are looking for a piece of jewelery that heavily incorporates emeralds than turn to Chopard with their Imperiale Emerald Lady’s watch. This watch has emeralds around the bezel, the case and even the bracelet, truly a exquisite piece.

Raymond Lee Jewelers has many estate earrings, bracelets and necklaces that feature emeralds at amazingly low prices. We have been in business since 1983 and have become one of South Florida’s most trusted jewelry stores. Come in and see what everyone has been talking about!

Angelina Jolie’s Watch From SALT: Florida Jewelry

Florida Jewelry

Florida Jewelry

In real life Angelina Jolie is known to wear classic and feminine timepieces such as the Cartier Tank Louis (click here to read more about Ms. Jolie and her watch). In her latest movie, SALT, where she plays a CIA agent that is on the run after being accused of being a spy, Jolie is wearing a much more rugged watch. The watch featured in the film is the Omega Constellation Double Eagle Chrono World Cup Special Edition.

While SALT may have not amassed such positive reviews, the Omega Constellation Double Eagle Chrono on the other hand has. Its amazing 3313 self-winding movement has received widespread praise and recognition. This movement features a column wheel mechanism and co-axial escapement that allows for greater precision, stability and durability. One fact that I find truly outstanding is that this watch has a power reserve of 52 hours which for this mid-priced watch is quite exceptional. Florida Jewelry.

Many of Omega’s watches tend to be on the larger size with the average case measuring 45mm, the Double Eagle Chrono breaks from the norm at a slightly smaller size of 41mm. This watch would look perfect for those of you with smaller wrists who have a hard time to finding a watch that makes its presence known without having a large case. The ladies version has a case measuring 35mm and looks great on any woman’s wrist.
The watch is available in steel, titanium and red gold, the one featured in the movie is titanium. The special edition is slightly different from the regular version as it has two outlined subdials, engraved roman numerals in the black bezel, the titanium case with black buttons and the black rubber strap. The price for this watch is around $4,800.

Jewelry at the 2011 People’s Choice Award- Florida Jewelry

This year’s People’s Choice Award was filled with beautiful celebrities wearing equally beautiful jewelry. The red carpet was filled with celebrities wearing combinations of earrings and cocktail rings, or earrings and bangle bracelets, a recent trend that has been gaining traction over the year. It was interesting to see many of Hollywood’s younger stars wearing pieces that really stood out while the more veteran actors were wearing more conservative pieces.

Florida Jewelry

Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift looked like she stepped out of Hollywood of yore with a classic loose updo and a pale peach nude sleeveless bodice dress with pleated cross panel detail. Ms. Swift with her subdued style allowed her jewelry to make an impression with blackened gold and diamond drop earrings from Amrapali, paired with a coral and gold bangle and pearl and gold cocktail ring from Neil Lane, truly a stunning ensemble. Florida Jewelry.

Joanna Garcia

Large over sized earrings and bold necklaces were also in abundance on the red carpet. The Kardashian sisters wore great examples of these jewelry styles, Kim Kardashian wore a stunning chunky gold necklace with matching earrings and her sister Kourtney wore the very popular diamond starburst earrings by Amrapali. Actress Joanna Garcia wore lengthy diamond drop earrings and Lucy Hale from Pretty Little Liars sported a gorgeous diamond and blackened gold necklace with an amazing diamond bangle bracelet and drop earrings.

Florida Jewelry

Ms. Gomez Wearing the Brumani Melange Ring

Selena Gomaz was stunning from head to toe and wore some pieces that I am sure will be very popular in the near future. She sported green amethyst and diamond drop earrings from Tresor’s “Interchangeable” collection, a Brumani Melange 18k gold ring with diamonds, pink quartz, rose de France amethyst, citrine and garnet ring and finished it off with a 14k gold and sterling silver bracelet.
