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

We like to live life on the edge. and hosting an extravagant evening without an infamous jewel thief wandering about?

What fun would that be?!

The turnout was fantastic, and attendees had a wonderful time, while supporting a great cause. Honored guests sipped champagne while browsing an eclectic collection of exquisite estate jewelry, vivid gemstones, pave set pendants and diamond-by-the-yard jewelry pieces, shopping side by side with the Cole Sisters.

As the evening progressed, Raymond Lee Jewelers took a moment to unveil the Nat King Cole Generation Hope Signature Pendant, designed for the NKC Generation Hope Foundation. The Diamond Horn Signature Pendant was greatly appreciated and adored by the Cole Twins, in addition to many of the evening’s guests.

This inspiring design pays a great deal of honor and homage to the talented, musical legend of the great Nat King Cole. The diamond embedded sculpted classic horn pendant was designed by Richard Resnik, our Professional Custom Jewelry Designer at Raymond Lee Jewelers.

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.
