It’s almost Halloween and we’re getting in the spirit! Not only does next week bring our exciting event SHINE at Diamonds by Raymond Lee, but it brings about our favorite opportunity for breaking out our darker side. Of jewels, that is.
At Raymond Lee Jewelers, we love to buy the most eccentric estate jewelry and estate watches we can find. Over the years we’ve scored priceless treasures like vintage coral Van Cleef & Arpels, or extremely rare Patek Philippe antiques. We’ve also seen (and occasionally bought) truly strange creations. Nothing makes us feel more like Dr. Frankenstein than putting life back into butchered luxury watches, or resurrecting beautiful diamonds from outdated settings.
We routinely remove decades of decay from our rarest finds, and some of those pieces definitely feeling like we’re the hosts of The Monster Mash rather than our favorite house flipping show on HGTV.
But today we wanted to showcase more of our contemporary pieces. They’re not scary at all, but still use a spooky palette to evoke those Halloween feels. We also threw in a few of our favorite estate pieces that play with Halloween colors. So hit play on your favorite spooky mixtape, grab some of the Reese’s you’re your Trick or Treat stash (you have time to replenish anyway) and check out some of our favorite Halloween jewels.
We love this dark and sultry smoky quartz pendant and those beautiful diamond stars that stud it.
Another smoky quartz, this time designed to perfection in a John Hardy ring. We love the intricate facets on the large cocktail gem.
This slim, skeletal yellow gold band holds .17ctw of diamonds set in a unique antique setting – and under $500.
This gorgeous Tiger’s Eye ring is the type of piece that lasts throughout autumn, long past Halloween. The crystal flower is centered by rubies and braced by diamonds and yellow gold.
A classic, simple Old Mine diamond and ruby three stone ring (with a blood red center perfect for vamping around on Halloween.)
We love this diamond crossover ring any time of the year, but this week it reminds us of lacy spiderwebs.
These black diamond halo earrings twist the classic halo topsy turvy.
This black onyx David Yurman necklace is darkly romantic.
Finally, these gorgeous David Yurman citrine earrings are the kind of accessory that will take you well through Thanksgiving. With perfect, classic American details and warm citrine as the anchor (one of November’s birthstones!) they’re perfect for any outfit this fall – costume or not.
