Rapaport Reports on Jewelry Industry Inflation and Diamond Trading Trending

Rapaport Reporting: Jewelry Industry Inflation

From: rapaportgroup  | Jun 23, 2011  | 95 views
RAPAPORT…
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.”

Scott Rothstein Auction Preview: ‘Rapid Reporting’ Hot off the Auction Block via ‘Raymond Lee Jewelers’

‘Rapid Reporting’

Raymond Lee Jewelers has become an active participant in the Scott W. Rothstein estate auction, taking place on July 13, 2011 at the Broward County Convention Center in Fort Lauderdale, FL.

Raymond Lee Jewelers Arrival: Scott Rothstein Auction Preview

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

Feature Friday: Rare Alexandrite Ring

Feature Friday: Alexandrite & Diamond Dome Ring

Alexandrite is one of the most magnificent and mysterious gemstones you will ever see. Though the gemstone itself was discovered less than 200 years ago, the unique color changing and reflective elements of alexandrite have received a great deal of attention and adoration. The stone’s existence itself is a phenomenon. Natural Alexandrite gemstones are an incredibly rare find. Two chemical elements which are scientifically constructed to avoid interaction with one another, chromium and beryllium, found a way to bypass this rule millions of years ago, in what would be considered a metamorphic atmosphere.

Discovered in 1830, Russia, the day when Tsar Alexander II was the appropriate age to rule,

legend has it that Alexandrite was named after royalty.

My first Alexandrite ring was a gift from my Dad for my 7th Birthday, a claddagh ring with an Alexandrite gemstone held in the hands. Alexandrite, at the time, was still the official June Birthstone. Unfortunately, things have changed. With the increasing value and rarity of natural Alexandrite, pearls are now the ‘official’ (the waters there are still a little muddy. Depending on who you ask, Alexandrite is still considered a birthstone of June, in addition to Moonstone.) June Birthstone. 

The ‘alexandrite effect’, as described by jewelers, is the natural color changing phenomenon of the gemstone. The color of this rare gemstone is green in daylight and deep red in darkness or incandescent light. Alexandrite can even appear to be pink or yellow in hue in natural light, and a columbine or raspberry red by incandescent light. This is representative of the mythology behind this interesting gemstone.

Alexandrite is associated with the planet Mercury — the trickster. Mercury is the quickest moving planet, said to be representative of how fast our thoughts and decisions can change. Mythology teaches us that Mercury represents both the messenger and the magician. It connects the mortal or ego self, the intuitive, or lower self, and the higher divine self. This is said to be embodied within the Alexandrite gemstone with the duality of color. 

Alexandrite is believed to strengthen intuition, self esteem, and happiness, increase creativity and imagination, and help balance your emotions.

This striking 14k white gold Alexandrite & Diamond Dome Ring is both elegant and fashionable. 

 Three large rare Alexandrite stones are surrounded by beautiful pave set diamonds in this unique ring.

Creative Comic Book Fathers Day Celebration: Wise Craft Dad Decoration

Father’s Day Favorites…

The Dad’s who find a way to do something for their family in celebration of Fathers Day instead of kicking their feet up once more, cementing their claim of an entitled right to “have a relaxing day.” (Just like every Sunday prior… )

In a great blog found on Raymond Lee Jewelers TypePad, a creation which wears the title Wise Craft, an incredibly touching Fathers Day tale was found. This great story is told with corresponding, accenting images.   Blair speaks to readers of her husband, Peter, who used Fathers Day to create a comic book themed bathroom for their children.

Kat Von D ‘Too Much Drama’ Jesse James Tweets: Is The Inked Up Engagement Over?

Jesse James and Kat Von D 2011

Various reports have been published this month from People and Life & Style Magazine, with conflicting announcements about the engagement between Kat Von D and Jesse James. In fact, since we first reported the engagement back in February the media has announced several splits between the high profile couple. 

Jesse James and Kat Von D are engaged, according to People.

The Engagement Ring: Kat Von D 2011

Almost five months after announcing their engagement, friends tell Life & Style magazine that James has told them the romance is over.

One insider tells the publication, “He says there’s too much drama for him.”

And the reports are supported by tweets James and his inked lady have posted on Twitter.com in the last week.

The roller coaster romance may be just fine, as both have reported separately that rumors of a split ‘couldn’t be further from the truth’ says Kat Von D and James lashes out at the trash talking tabloid rumors. The couple went on a mutually defensive strike Thursday evening, assuring the public that rumors of a split are nothing more than silly.

Now.. A bit about the JEWELRY!

Kat Von D Engagement Ring

The gorgeous vintage engagement ring that Kat has been sporting since early 2011 is a piece from Neil Lane’s archival collection. Lane was quoted earlier this year saying, “She [Kat] absolutely loved her ring.”

US Weekly reported that the ring is a 4 carat-plus platinum and diamond piece, featuring a unique filigree pattern with outer scroll designs. The center stone is surrounded by smaller diamonds, leading out to the vintage filigree pattern. The center stone is surrounded by smaller diamonds and accented by the outer delicate filigree pattern.

Scott Rothstein’s World Class Jewelry and Watch Collection to be Sold at Auction

Place Your Bids, South Florida!

One of the most anticipated auctions in South Florida history will take place in Fort Lauderdale this Summer. A world class collection of diamond encrusted jewelry and luxury watches from the estate of high-profile ponzi schemer, Scott Rothstein is scheduled to be auctioned off to registered bidders on July 13th at The Broward County Convention Center.

Florida‘s largest ponzi scam in history yielded over $1.2 Billion for the now dis-barred Fort Lauderdale Attorney, Scott Rothstein. The upcoming July Auction will be the 2nd massive auction of Scott Rothstein’s estate. In 2010, many of the convicted felons big-ticket items were sold at auction, raising a total of $5.8 million to begin repaying his most affected investors.

Of the valuables remaining in Rothstein’s estate are a world-class collection of diamond adorned jewelry and a vast inventory of the most treasured luxury watches in history. Large diamonds, rubies, sapphires and over 200 luxury watches of high-end designers such as Rolex, Patek Philippe, Franck Muller, Gerald Genta and Richard Mille are all included in the auction block.

These items will all going to be made available to the public on July 13, 2011. The auction of Scott Rothstein’s Estate will be held at the Broward County Convention Center in Fort Lauderdale, FL. Other pieces will include jeweled accessories that Scott collected for his cherishes cigar collection, two late-model Corvettes and an 09′ Mercedes SL 550 coupe.

In order to avoid a harmful mistake in judgment by venturing for himself what the jewelry belonging to Rothstein’s Estate may be worth, Rick Levin had the Sun Sentinel contact Jeff Josephson, President of Raymond Lee Jewelers in Boca Raton.

The following are initial assessments given by Jeff Josephson, President of Raymond Lee Jewelers, when presented with the star jewelry pieces that are to be sold at the July 13 auction:

A woman’s platinum diamond bracelet with 41 emerald-cut diamonds weighing a total of nearly 24 carats:
“Gorgeous, high quality, beautifully made. Thirty grand for that.”
A white and yellow gold necklace featuring a 10-carat, heart-shaped diamond:
“Probably worth $85,000.”
A woman’s fancy-yellow, 12-carat diamond ring:
“That is probably a quarter of a million dollars. — Enough money for a couple of Ferrari’s.”

“It is all good stuff,” Jeff Josephson concluded of the pieces. “I think that I want to go to that auction.”

Josephson will, in fact, be attending the auction come July. It is a fair assumption that a large number of attendees from those closely invested or intrigued by the jewelry industry in South Florida will be present at the Broward County Convention Center on July 13, 2011, eager to see for themselves one of the most impressive timepiece collections in history.
