Jewelry inflation in the U.S. continues as the price of precious metals and diamonds climb. According to comScore, the popularity of online video and the ever-changing habits of viewers present an opportunity to advertise your brand.
A report from Rice Universityassociate professor of management, Utpal Dholakia, businesses can gain traction using “daily deals” websites, but there are many elements a brand must consider. Over the next few years, it is likely that daily deal sites will have to settle for lower shares of revenues from businesses compared with their current levels, and it will be harder and more expensive for them to find viable candidates to fill their pipelines of daily deals, according to Dholakia. In his third study – the most exhaustive study done to date on the daily deals industry – Dholakia found that there is very little difference between companies in the ever-expanding competition for consumer dollars, and it will be difficult for any one site to stand out from the others.”

Cartier Panther Collier with Emerald Eyes and a Black Onyx Nose: Feature Friday, Here We Go!

Cartier Panther Collier:

A Golden Feature Friday

Cartier Panther Collier

I once was wondering through a metallic forest, plagued with exhaustion and without a compass, when rapidly to my rescue ran…

A majestic golden panther that lit up the land.

Through a bewildered haze, I did hear him say, “Hello, my dear. I am Cartier”.  He said to rest, said that everything would be just fine. I awoke in my home, with no forest in sight. All I remember of the panther who saved me are his black onyx nose and the way it seemed to glow, with enchanting emerald eyes glowing as he delivered me to safety.

“I am Cartier”

A premonition this dream must have been because…

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
