Masculine Monday: David Yurman New Arrivals

 David Yurman, founded by eponymous the designer, is renowned for its affordable and everyday luxury. When his cable jewelry took the world by storm in the eighties, no one could have predicted that 30 years later another Yurman would make his mark on the brand.

Evan Yurman, head of men’s design at David Yurman, has created a rough-hewn, yet sophisticated line for men that shines this fall. Here are Raymond Lee Jewelers top picks from David Yurman men’s new arrivals.

 David Yurman Amulets Shark Tooth Necklace

David Yurman, Raymond Lee JewelersThis bronze shark tooth is the perfect answer to the hottest trend in women’s jewelry right now, rose gold. Not only does the darker bronze add a touch of industrial luxury to this piece, the shark tooth is both a natural element and a strong one. Adding to this necklace’s stylish toughness is the titanium box chain the shark tooth hangs from.

Armory Band Ring

Inspired by medieval elements, this ring is a subtle reference to armor-clad knights slicing through the bad guys with broadswords. It might even help you channel some of that raw, unbridled strength that accompanied them in conquests and battles. Or Not – but either way, this ring is seriously stylish.

Royal Cord Cufflinks, Black Diamond

These cufflinks are the perfect addition for a completely polished look. The textured sterling silver offers interest without the distraction of over shininess, while the slightly irregular pattern and shape of the stripes lend an unfussy vibe to even formal wear. Black diamonds are the ultimate in masculine luxe, and make these cuff links the ideal finishing touch.

Pave ring with cognac Diamonds

This ring is the way to go for a little masculine bling. The warmth of the cognac diamonds is perfect for fall, and balances out the cool tones of the sterling silver. While the diamonds verge on being too fussy left to their own devices, the thick width of the band makes it no-nonsense, and the sturdy rope-detail on the band’s underside counteracts any feminine energy.

Gentlemen, what are your top jewelry and accessory picks for fall?

What Does the High Price of Gold Mean?

Over the past few days, the price of gold has skyrocketed, reaching record highs and even briefly surpassing platinum prices. As the uncertain future of the US economy and European markets make traders nervous, gold continues to seem like a sure bet – making it even more valuable. But what does the higher price of gold actually mean?

Criminals have noticed that Gold is more expensive too.

A wave of gold-related robberies and thefts have been reported across the globe. Matthew Phillips of Freakonomics blog reports on L.A.’s rash of street-robberies and smash-n-grabs, as well as robberies and street muggings in Iraq and Guyana. Retailers and the general public should be extra vigilant while gold prices soar.

Gold will continue to be a desirable addition to investor portfolios.

Gold Prices for 8/23/11

According to the Wall Street Journal, “…a selloff in gold is unlikely in the current economic environment as investors will be hard put to find an alternative asset that can protect their wealth as well as gold,” said George Gero, a vice president with RBC Capital Markets Global Futures.

Traders will be affected by the price of gold in the markets.

For the second time this year, The Shanghai Gold Exchange raised the margin requirements on gold futures contracts by 1%, making investors pay more up front to buy gold.

Big Prices mean Big Business for Jewelers who buy gold.

Raymond Lee Jewelers - We Buy Gold

As the line for gold prices ticks up on market graphs, the lines out the doors of jewelers grow longer. Americans looking to cash in on their unwanted or unworn gold are flocking to jewelers who buy gold. Once scrap gold is purchased, it can be purified and turned into gold bars or re-cast for different pieces of jewelry.

Readers, have you sold gold before? Are you more likely to now that you can earn a substantial amount for the gold you own? And jewelers – have you noticed an uptick in business (we have at Raymond Lee Jewelers!)? Have you beefed up security measures in light of gold’s higher prices?

Jewelry Education: HOW TO SELL OR BUY JEWELRY

“WHAT DO I NEED TO KNOW

ABOUT JEWELRY 

when I go to sell or buy it?”

Good question! 

Florida Jewelry Store

POINTERS TO HELP YOU SELL OR BUY JEWELRY

Here’s a quick checklist of knowledge you should have before you go shopping for expensive jewelry.

  1. What is a Karat? It’s a good idea to know that gold karat number varies with weight, design, finishing and country of origin. Finishing can be done by hand or by machine, and this makes a difference. 24 karat gold, or pure gold, is too soft for molding into wearable jewelry, thus it needs to be mixed with other metals to strengthen it. The metal used to mix into the gold can change its color. WHAT TO KNOW if it’s less than 10kt (roughly 42% gold), than it can’t be sold as gold legally. You’ll hear these terms: “fill”, “electroplated” or “overlay” and that means it just has a thin gold coat on the piece of jewelry.
  2. What are the four C’s? Don’t expect to read this and have a working knowledge of the four C’s, but I can at least acquaint you with the language. WHAT TO KNOW – the four C’s are Cut, Color, Clarity and Carat. If a jeweler can’t discuss these in great detail, they don’t know enough to be selling you jewelry, keep shopping.
  3. Be aware of chain stores who employ retail sales clerks AND have no actual jewelers on staff. WHAT TO KNOW  – Local jewelers will almost always have a more educated and knowledgeable staff.
  4. If you are going to purchase a really expensive piece of jewelry, USE A MAJOR CREDIT CARD AND HAVE IT APPRAISED immediately.

Now, you officially know more than most people about jewelry shopping! Enjoy ~

Rapid Reporting: Gold Bullion made a bad batch! Jamie Campany

Gold Bullion made a bad batch!

In a world of economic turmoil, downgraded status, and the U.S. dollar sinking faster than the Titanic, many of us are scrambling to find a secure, safe and reliable means of investing our monies.  Precious metals, such as gold bullion gives us that security we are all craving.  However, here is a “BUYER BEWARE” scam that is sweeping the nation.  There are “brokers” running around and targeting our senior citizens to quickly invest their savings into these precious metals, but only taking the money, not bringing back the metals they “invested”.  As with anytime you are looking to invest, due diligence is required to fully investigate any and all companies!

Gold - Bullion Bars

In Florida, these precious metal exchange stores were going up faster than Starbucks, Walgreens and medicial dispensaries combined!  Most recently, Gold Bullion Exchange founder, Jamie Campany, plead guilty to fraud.

 He was one of many who took client’s money with no intent to purchase the precious metals he promised.  Ok, that’s the bad news.  Good news, is now this under regulated commodity is now over-sought by US Commodity Futures Commission.  If the trade of monies to bullion isn’t finalized (metal being delivered to the original buyer) within 28 days, that is a violation of the new law and the federal government prosecute.Lee Josephson, of Raymond Lee Jewlers suggests, “It is always a good time to buy precious metals. As the currency continues to get weaker precious metals continue to rise.” Raymond Lee Jewelers buys Bullion and Gold.
