Introducing JA New York’s new designers | National Jeweler

National Jeweler published an article featuring the emerging jewelry designers that will be featured at the JA Summer Show, currently taking place at The Javits Center, New York, NY.  With enough time in between the NY Antique Jewelry & Watch Show and the IWJG Show, we were able to sneak in some time at the JA Summer Show.  Lucky us, we’ll have a sneak peak at the up and coming hottest trends in jewelry, and be able to say a quick hello to some vendors we’ve worked with in the past.

JA Summer Show

Of the jewelry designers featured in the article,G & G Creations stood out with some of the most incredible approaches to jewelry design that I’d ever seen. In fact, I’ve written fan mail already…

With a combined seven decades of experience in jewelry design and manufacturing, the newly formed Boston-based G&G Creations is a force to be reckoned with. In 2010, Vahe Ghazarian and Esin Guler and master gem setter Mihran Guler banded together to launch G&G Creations, a fabricator of high-end silver and karat gold designs.

Collections to date total four: Imprint features organic-looking lily pad shapes; Scroll features timeless swirl effects; Nyx, named for the Greek goddess of the night, showcases contrasting dark and light motifs (like skulls set with yellow gold accents); Faith pieces pay homage to religion. Couture or one-off pieces are also available.

All merchandise is made in the United States and starts at less than $1,000 retail. G&G currently has two retail accounts, including Boston’s Barmakian Jewelers. Fun fact: Sevan Biçakçi is a family friend of Esin and Mihran! – JCK

Masculine Monday: NY Antique Jewelry and Watch Show (and Tell)

 

 

Masculine Monday: Give Your Rolex Watch Away

Good Morning Everybody!  Hope that you’ve all rested up over the weekend, and that a case of the ‘Monday’s’ is not setting the mood for your day.  With Monday being reserved for our Masculine Monday Entries, today’s Masculine portion will come to you in a varied delivered way…

Today, Gents, our advice for some serious Girlfriend/Wife/Best Friend bonus points… give the lady your wristwatch.

Preferably, give her your Gents Rolex wristwatch!

Rolex GMT

We touched on this trend just as it was sparked a few months ago, where Jennifer Aniston and her men’s Rolex wristwatch was featured in our entry, ‘Breaking the Mold‘.  As time has passed, more and more gals are wanting a gents wristwatch, as opposed to a ladies model.

Along with the other most prevalent trends being shown by consumers at the New York Antique Jewelry & Watch Show, which we’ll touch on later, many women are looking for Gents Rolex models for themselves. It has become one of the strongest trends withing the watch industry.

“Many women are looking for gents Rolex models for themselves. That is the new trend.” 

This comes straight from the source, the Raymond Lee Jewelers VP, who is currently exhibiting a carefully chosen selection of Raymond Lee Jewelers Antique Jewelry and Luxury Watches at the famous US Antique Show.

Being a true modern gentlemen with style and substance does require the ability to choose the perfect gift for the one you love. When the next Birthday or Anniversary rolls around, consider picking up your gal a Gents Rolex to light up her face with glee.

Better yet, find yourself a new timepiece to liven up the life on your wrist, and give her your current gents wristwatch as a gift. This will be both sweet and sentimental, and you’ll be thanking me in no time.

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”

Cartier Panther Collier

A premonition this dream must have been because…

Cartier has come back again!

This time, in the form of an incredible Panther Cartier Collier necklace, still watching the world through those bright emerald eyes and wearing a boldly vibrant black onyx nose. In 18k Yellow Gold, a 16″ Panther Cartier Collier Necklace exquisitely holds the regal Panther. With emerald eyes and black onyx facial accents, this Cartier piece weighs in total 65.7 dwt.

This Authentic Cartier 18K Yellow Gold Panther Collier Necklace comes BRAND NEW w/ Papers!
