If you’ve stopped by our Boca Raton jewelry store lately to peruse our usually overflowing showcases you’ve certainly noticed a few things missing. And where are our most fabulous, heart-stopping large diamonds, ruby and sapphire jewelry, and vintage Van Cleef and Arpels? They’re on their annual February whirlwind tour of course! We kicked off the month with the Miami Beach show, headed to Naples last weekend, and before Jeff and Lee fly off to Hong Kong, we’re exhibiting at the jewel of our show calendar: The Palm Beach Jewelry Art and Antique Show.

How do we love the Palm Beach show? Let us count the ways. Not only is it in our backyard, up at the Palm Beach County Convention Center in West Palm, it’s full of our local friends and clientele. We’ve seen some customers stop by our booth (#329 this year) year after year, and we’ve always got new and exciting things to show off!

The Palm Beach show is one of the biggest, but also one of the most prestigious. Everything from Marie Antionette’s personal baubles to 18th century furniture lines the halls of the show. And we bring the best of the best of our bling. We also make sure to stock up on those extra special pieces that we just know will find a loving home at the Palm Beach show.

Breguet Reine de Naples Celebrates the Bicentennial of Its First Watch

Swiss luxury watch manufacturer Breguet celebrates the 200th anniversary of its first watch manufactured, this month. The watch was not only a first for Breguet but also possibly the first timepiece for the wrist. Breguet has commemorated the special occasion with production of the Reine de Naples Anniversary Edition watch.

Abraham Louis-Breguet made the wristwatch for Caroline Murat, the Queen of Naples and longtime admirer of his timepieces.

Breguet began celebration of the anniversary in January with a traveling exhibit which offered audiences a glimpse of the world’s first wristwatch as well as previews of the Reine de Naples collection. The collection, so-named for that queen who ordered the first exquisite timepiece from Breguet, consists of an exclusive watch and matching jewelry.

The anniversary edition watch takes design cues from the ovoid case of the original watch to which it pays homage. The watch’s bezel and snap are set with 28 diamonds and 27 blue sapphires; the movement of the timepiece is visible through the sapphire caseback. Another 233 diamonds and 303 sapphires of varying shades pave the gold dial and its flange while the alligator strap features a folding clasp set with another 26 diamonds.

To match the bejeweled watch Breguet will also offer the Reine de Naples Jewellry set, which includes a ring, a pair of earring, a necklace and a tiara. Each piece of jewelry hosts diamonds and sapphires set in 950 platinum and is designed around the central motif of a sapphire. Diamonds, sapphires and platinum- not a bad anniversary present!

Exhibitor Spotlight – M.S. Rau Antiques

One of the best parts of attending the many jewelry shows where Raymond Lee Jewelers exhibits is getting to know our fellow exhibitors. Every show from Miami to Hong Kong features elite dealers of fine art, jewelry and antiques, and we love to survey the treasures they bring along with them. At least week’s Miami Beach Antique Show, we snagged an interview with Cory of Mantiques Modern, and at this week’s Naples Art, Antique and Jewelry Show, Phillip of M.S. Rau Antiques took the time to chat with Raymond Lee Jewelers.

M.S. Rau is located in New Orleans’ French Quarter, where it has become a Mecca for discerning collectors over the past 100 years. Their 30,000 square foot warehouse is home to everything from Paul Revere sterling silver to Renoir paintings, and has dealt in fine antiques since they first opened their doors in 1912. To this day the company is run by the Rau family, now operated by third generation antiques expert Bill Rau.

Below, Phillip showcases one of the fine paintings M.S. Rau brought to Naples, and explains what makes it so significant:

Be sure to visit M.S. Rau’s website to learn more about them, and wish them a “Happy Centennial” this March via Facebook.
