Today we are presenting another astounding and fabulous diamond jewelry shoot at Diamonds by Raymond Lee. This jewelry shoot gives precedence to model Julia Mallard, and five new absolutely stunning jewelry pieces and a ravishing Rolex Daytona 116509, all of which you can find at our state-of-the-art showroom in Boca Raton.
Before we get into all the different exquisite jewelry and the Rolex Daytona, here is a little bit about this jewelry shoot’s model, Julia Mallard.
Julia Mallard is a model from Georgia who currently lives in South Florida.
She is a student at Boca Raton’s very own Florida Atlantic University.
She is also a former NHL cheerleader!
We want to give a special thanks to Julia. Julia was extremely easy to work with, she’s gorgeous, fun, and just an overall pleasure to be around.

Jewelry Shoot with Julia Mallard
Now let’s take a look at all the different jewelry Julia wore for our diamond jewelry shoot the other week.
Rolex Daytona 116509
In this diamond jewelry shoot, model Julia Mallard is rocking a Rolex Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona, reference 116509.
The Rolex Daytona is a watch that was born to race, so it’s only right that we have Julia posted in a pearl white Mercedes Benz AMG.
This newer black dial Daytona reference 116509 is far from any other Daytona in the Rolex catalog.
It might look like stainless steel, but everything from the tachymetric bezel to the Oyster case to the Oyster bracelet is crafted from flawless 18 karat white gold. This particular reference earns its place among the most luxurious timepieces ever created by Rolex.
That said, the overall integrity of Daytona’s DNA is one hundred percent present in this watch.
All of the modern Daytona characteristics are intact. It has the 40mm Oyster case, the three-link Oyster bracelet and the powerful fit that you come to know and love from the Rolex Daytona line. And, of course, it is polished to perfection with a strategic mix of high polish finish and satin finish.
Black Dial with Red Accents
This Rolex Daytona features one of the most pronounced and striking dials we’ve ever seen.
The dial is completely matte black so the red accents are subtle. It’s contrast by degrees and we love that about this dial.
“Subtly” is a classic Rolex trademark, and it is realized with stunning effect on this timepiece.
The minute track is red, the hands on the sub registers are red and so is the seconds hand. Overall, it’s the perfect splash of color that adds wonderful contrast. Especially when considering the polished white gold spread across the dial.
The hands, Arabic numerals, and even the chapter rings of the 3 sub registers are polished beautifully. All of which are, of course, precious white gold.
On the whole, this is one of the Rolex Daytona’s that is undoubtedly of a higher rank than a standard Rolex sports watch thanks to the breathtaking aesthetics. All of these impeccable features signal this watch is special before you even realize it’s made of 18 karat white gold.
The Rolex Cosmograph Daytona comes equipped with a calibre 4130 movement. It is a self-winding mechanical chronograph movement that was developed in-house by Rolex.
What’s really special about this movement is the architecture uses far fewer components than their typical chronograph movements, thus enhancing the movement’s reliability.
As with all Rolex Perpetual movements, the calibre 4130 movement has a Swiss Chronometer certification. Only the highest precision watches can successfully pass this COSC test.
What’s more, this chronograph movement features a Parachrom hairspring, which provides much greater shock resistance and temperature variance resistance.
Between the stopwatch functions, tachymeter bezel, and the 4130 movement, this watch is an extremely dependable tool watch for pro drivers.
A Smart Investment
Essentially every Rolex boasts a remarkable resale value. After all, Rolex produces exclusive top-quality tool watches, and they are the most coveted brand of watches in the world bar none.
That said, the Rolex Daytona line takes resale value to another level. Daytona watches are by far the most popular and highly sought after watches across the globe. So, investing in a luxurious white gold Rolex Daytona is a very smart decision for a watch collector.
Not only does the white gold Rolex Daytona 116509 add serious value to your watch collection, but it also has a sporty design, complete with the ultimate functionality that you’d expect from a state-of-the-art sports watch.
It wouldn’t be right to pair the Rolex Daytona 116509 with anything but the best.
So, we gave model Julia Mallard a $100,000 antique cushion diamond halo engagement ring to wear for the jewelry shoot.
The 18K white gold ring features a 10.09 carat antique old mine cushion cut diamond as a centerpiece. This is the definition of “jaw-dropping”.
To amplify the already monumental old mine cushion cut diamond, surrounding it is a halo of round brilliant diamonds and the band is set with a continuous loop of round brilliant diamonds as well.
This ring sparkles and shines with unrivaled fierceness.
But more than just being incredibly stunning and well designed, the antique cut diamond adds a level of uniqueness that is hard to match. This engagement ring brings true vintage beauty to the modern world…
Old Mine Cut
Long ago, diamond cutters sculpted diamonds with a big cutlet in the center, as this was said to produce more light refraction from the diamond.
This way of cutting the diamond was called the “old mine cut”.
Old mine cuts were one of the most popular diamond cuts back in the day, just as the round brilliant cut is in the modern age.
Nowadays, Old Mine Cut diamonds are rare and are highly sought after because of their vintage appeal.
If you are someone who loves history, incredible beauty and vintage styles, we suspect this ring has just become your new dream engagement ring.
Diamond Chain Necklaces
Chain necklaces are all the hype these days. They’ve come back into fashion with full force.
However, at Diamonds by Raymond Lee, we like to turn the knob on trends up to 10. So, here we have Julia Mallard donning not one but two massive diamond chain necklaces made from 18K white gold.
One of the diamond chain necklaces is a bit wider than the other, but both of them are substantial in size. When paired together, it makes for a prodigious look that is nearly impossible to take your eyes off of.
The diamond chain necklaces use the same chain link style.
This particular chain link style is unique, flexible, and extremely resilient.
On her lovely skin tone, the white gold and diamonds pop and sparkle in the most magnificent fashion.
What’s more, the diamond chain necklaces really pull in the entire jewelry ensemble, making everything feel extremely well coordinated.
To equal out the immensity of the diamond chain necklaces, Julia Mallard put on a wide diamond mesh bracelet.
The bracelet is handcrafted from 18K white gold and it features 12.4 carats of graded G color VS round brilliant diamonds.
It uses a sturdy and immaculately concealed slide claps.
Both the design and size of this bracelet makes for breathtaking aesthetic appeal. You literally can’t be missed wearing this diamond mesh bracelet.
It gives your wrist a full look without having to wear too many pieces. This allows you to have an extravagant look without risking being “extra”…
Now, besides the immaculate and sophisticated beauty this bracelet oozes in all directions, it is also extremely comfortable on the wrist. It will never pinch or pull skin or hair and it feels surprisingly light for having 12 carats of diamonds set into white gold.
If you are into subtle statement pieces, this bracelet is a great option. It’s a bracelet that will last through generations, being passed down from mother to daughter to granddaughter, always remaining charming and unequivocally gorgeous.

The final piece, yet surely not one to overlook, not by any stretch, is a 14k White Gold 12.55ct Cushion Cut Diamond Eternity Band.
We all know and love eternity bands, they typically represent a special milestone in one’s life or relationship, and they are absolutely stunning in design…
Especially one of this enormity.
It features a continuous loop of large cushion cut diamonds, which total 12.55 carats. The diamonds are I/J in color and VS-SI in clarity, and they are set into the white gold using a prong setting.
A prong setting is best for an eternity ring with diamonds of this size. It makes the diamonds protrude beautifully, allowing them to sparkle in all of their wonderful grandeur.
Although eternity rings are common, one like this is extremely unique. After all, not everyone can afford a $49,995 eternity ring.
This eternity ring is made for a woman who is not afraid to be seen, to be heard, and to be known. It’s made for an elite woman who has confidence that shines brighter than the diamonds themselves.

Diamonds and Donuts
We gave Julia Mallard a Diamonds and Donuts hat to wear to not only represent our car show, but because it was also fitting since she had on a Rolex Daytona 116509 and she was in a Lambo and a Mercedes-Benz during this jewelry shoot.
So, for those who don’t know, Diamonds and Donuts is a car show hosted by us, Diamonds by Raymond Lee, at our retail location on North Federal Highway in Boca Raton.
