A Masculine Monday Tribute from Raymond Lee Jewelers

Modern Mens Jewelry Re-Ignited with Cuff Link Creativity!

The year of 2011 continues to prove that accessories are no longer particularly fashioned towards women. While nothing has been lost or overlooked in the fantastically futuristic and subtly sophisticated jewelry trends among women, the time for men to shine in their very own signature style spotlight has certainly arrived.

Mens accessories such as cuff-links, silk ties and vintage scarves have become an enhanced, exquisite way of displaying personalized style among modern men.

Fashion accessories have now dominated the world of men’s style.

Functional pieces with hints of both futuristic appeal and classic attribution are leading the pack of up-and-coming mens fashion accessories. In a world where mens accessories were recently limited only to subtle dome wedding bands and the rare spotting of a black chrome and stainless steel linked bracelet, modern mens jewelry exhibits more strength and style than ever before. Status statement pieces are bringing a charming swagger back to mens fashion accessories, and we are loving every moment of it.

New York’s Annual Sculptural Objects & Functional Art Fair (SOFA) will be showcasing a variety of these modern masculine creations between April 14th -17th, at the Park Avenue Armory. In artistic collaboration, Sarah Graham and llyn strong gallery will be introducing their latest creations at New York’s Annual Sculptural Objects & Functional Art Fair, along with sixteen additional incredibly talented jewelry and glass artists as part of this magnificent collection. In the ‘Mr. Graham’ mens jewelry collection, featured in the InStore Magazine Editors Picks in December of 2010, Grahams’ impressive foresight of this sweeping fashion trend is revealed. Delving a bit deeper into the wide world of unique cuff-link designs, a breakthrough trend in customized cuff links is booming in popularity. Some particularly creative personalized cuff-links include honey bees, lego pieces, sonogram photographs and mini re-creations of Nintendo game controllers. These daring, fun designs are a new option for men who desire a stylish, personalized look with cuff-links, while avoiding what may be an overdressed appearance. Alternatively, for those days when professional attire is mandatory, men are being drawn to cuff-link design creations that embody vintage timepieces. Literally. The designs which are continuously hitting home-runs with men who prefer a more classic approach to accessorizing are cuff-links that are actual vintage watch mechanisms, set on sterling silver hinges.

"Watch Works"

One approach to these fascinating male accessories that is growing in significant popularity is having a professional custom jewelry designer create a personalized pair of cuff-links. These artisans are known for their exquisite work with metal and gemstones, as well as the ultimate precision and quality design in creating or altering jewelry completely customized to the clients desires. Richard Resnik is the professional custom jewelry designer at Raymond Lee Jewelers.

With extraordinary professional ability, natural talent and an unyielding dedication to client satisfaction in personalized jewelry creations, Richard offers a unique and creative approach to the creation of customized cuff-links that is unsurpassed. Richards skills in jewelry customization and alteration extend into a wide array of various pieces.

Customized work with timepieces, earrings, bracelets and more can be discussed with Richard directly by calling Raymond Lee Jewelers in Boca Raton, at (561) 750-7808. Cufflinks and Jewellery “Raymond Lee Jewelers, based in Boca Raton, Fl”
