This year was no different as the blogosphere was abuzz with celebrity jewelry the day after the Oscars. One of a kind pieces and luxury jewelry were everywhere on the red carpet, with many celebrities wearing large bracelets that were hard to ignore.

O is for October and Opal!

Florida Jewelry

With the month of October now underway today I am bringing you a brief lesson in Gemology.  Since the birthstones (that’s right there are two!) for October are Opal and Tourmaline.  While this article is focused mainly on Opal I will follow up with a second article about Tourmaline shortly.  Opals were revered by the ancient Romans as it was inspiring to them for its beauty was almost impossible to describe in words.  Romans simply called it “Opalus” a word that means “precious stone”.  One philosopher and scholar Pliny described opals as “they equal the deepest and richest colors of painters. Others simulate the flaming fire of burning sulphur…and even the bright blaze of burning oil”.  He was referring to Opals play of color ranging in colors as blue/green such as peacock feathers and vibrant reds and oranges like hot magma shooting out into the sky from a volcano.

One of the greatest things about opal is that the range in varieties and colors make opal such a versatile stone.   It ranges in color and qualities from the modestly priced white opals with a milky base color and soft play of color to intensely vivid black opals with color so intense it can look like it is on fire.    The patterns of the opal’s play of color can be categorized in one of three types; Pinfire, Flash and Harlequin.  Pinfire displays very small patches or “dots” of play of color, Flash displays large areas of play-of-color and Harlequin shows large, distinct angular patches of play-of-color with edges touching each other.

Opals are found all over the world.  White opals are the most common and are found in Ethiopia, Australia, and North and South America.  Fire opals known for having their intense orange and red colors are most widely found in Mexico.  Black opals are found almost exclusively in Australia.   One of the main mining areas in Australia is Coober Pedy.  The name comes from the aboriginal word “kupapiti” which literally means “white man in a hole”.  Because of the hot nature of the Australian outback miners there often live in underground housing to escape the heat.

With the current resurgence of victorian and vintage style jewelery designs, one cannot ignore the importance of opals in todays market.  Usually opal jewelry is offered at a commercial level with small white opals and low play of color but finer quality opals are beyond beautiful.  They have a rich glow to them that cannot be compared to by any other  gem.  At Raymond Lee Jewelers we have a wide selection of opal jewelry of fine quality.  Come in today to see our selection!.

Gucci To Create Special Jewelry For The Grammys-Florida Jewelry

Florida Jewelry

Grammy Award

The world renowned timepiece and Jewelry maker, Gucci, and The Grammy Awards have signed a three-year agreement that will have Gucci designing a unique collection of watches and Jewelry for the Grammys. Gucci has always had strong support from the countless musicians that attend the Grammy Awards every year and hopes to honor these talented and loyal clientele by having its famous creative director, Frida Giannini, design the special collection her self. Proceeds from the sale of this collection will go to the Grammy Museum, which is dedicated to the restoration and preservation of milestone musical recordings for the enjoyment of future generations.

Gucci has a great history of commitments to the preservation of the arts. 90 years of success allows Gucci to provide support to some worth while causes, such as Martin Scorsese’s non-profit organization , The Film Foundation. The Film Foundation was founded in 1990 and is dedicated to preserving films. Its five year relationship with Gucci has resulted in the restoration of six classic films that will survive to enrich the lives of future generations. The Grammy Museum hopes to do the same thing but with music. Judging by the success Gucci has had with The Film Foundation, I do not doubt this partnership will succeed in preserving historically significant moments and recordings of our musical heritage.

Louis Vuitton

Click and Bid Now!

The Clous bracelet is one of Louis Vuittons signatures items from the Emprise collection. This collection was introduced in 2004 and was Louis Vuittons first foray into the jewelry market. Consisting mainly of gold and diamonds, Louis Vuitton strived to combine innovation, luxury and sensuality to create pieces that would resonate with consumers. Marc Jacobs, Louis Vuittons head designer, faced the daunting challenge of creating a new product line that was both modern and true to more than 150 years of design tradition. The Emprise collection and the Clous bracelet more than succeeded in this regard.

The Clous bracelet is beautifully made; radiating a simple elegance. You can find this bracelet in yellow, white and even rose gold. Each bracelet is crafted with a small clasp on the outer circumference that can be opened for easy removal of the bracelet. This differentiates the Clous from the similar Cartier Love bracelet which needs a screw to remove. Making the Clous a great option if you intend to wear a bracelet everyday.  Often wearers will layer multiple Clous bracelets of different sizes on the wrist, creating a impossibly chic look. Here at Raymond Lee Jewelers we have many Clous bracelets for sale at an affordable price, Florida jewelry Click on the picture above to be sent to one of our items.

Cartier Love Bracelet- Florida Jewelry

Florida Jewelry

Bid Now

In the past we have blogged about the Cartier Love bracelet and its many different sizes. The Cartier Love bracelet was introduced 1969 and quickly became one of Cartier’s most popular pieces. Designed by Aldo Cipullo who was inspired by the old medieval chastity belt and felt the Love bracelet would signify a committed relationship between two people. Cartier furthered Aldo’s interpretation by limiting the sale of the Love bracelet to the general public, they instead presented his or her bracelets to 25 famous couples at that time: Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, Cary Grant and Dyan Cannon, Ali McGraw and Steve McQueen, Sophia Loren and Carlo Ponti, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor etc.

The Cartier Love bracelet differs from traditional bracelets, which are clasped to the wrist or slipped over the hand onto the wrist, the Love bracelet can only be opened using a special screwdriver. This is where one can see the connection between the medieval chastity belt and the modern Love bracelet, the belt could only be opened with a special key and the bracelet can only be opened with a special screwdriver. The Cartier screwdriver comes with every Love bracelet and can be formed into a necklace, one person has the locked bracelet around their wrist while their partner has the key around their neck.

Here at Raymond Lee Jewelers we have many beautiful Cartier Love bracelets for sale. Click on the picture above to see one of the exquisite Love bracelets we have for sale and other Florida Jewelry.
