TIMEX Re-Launch Of The Best-Selling 1960’s Mid-Century Modern - the Marlin.


Tried and true, TIMEX recently announced their re-launch of the best-selling 1960’s TIMEX Marlin.

It is great to see a watch company that isn't looking to add new "complications" but is instead satisfied with a simple design from yesterday with the contemporary reissue of the sleek mid-century original. 

However, this latest drop will feature exclusive new color palettes for him, and for the first time ever, a design specifically made for women.

The Gentleman’s Standard now extends to the Ladies Choice. 
This reissue of our classic 1960s timepiece pairs the purity and pleasure of a hand-wound mechanical movement with the timeless sophistication of a sleek design. 
Now available with rose-gold details and a white leather strap. 
Sold exclusively on TIMEX.com.
Classic. Elegant. Lasting. This reissue of our classic 1960s timepiece pairs the purity, precision and pleasure of a hand-wound mechanical movement with timeless sophistication. We’ve updated this 1960s classic, creating a Women’s Marlin® timepiece that stays true to its mid-century modern design, featuring a rose gold-tone case, white dial and white leather strap. And while we’ve upgraded this timepiece to meet modern standards, we’ve stayed true to the functionality of our original Marlin® watch with a hand-wound mechanical movement and domed acrylic crystal. Wind the watch until you feel resistance on the crown. This should be repeated every day to prevent the watch from stopping. Special Edition Timex.com Exclusive

About TIMEX:
TIMEX roots date back to 1894 in Waterbury, Connecticut, a time when how you made something was just as important as what you made.  But the brand 
came into its own in the '50s.  In 1950, TIMEX brand watches arrived with the V-Conic, the first high-quality mass produced watch movement.  At the end of the decade, every third watch sold was a TIMEX.  AND we did everything imaginable to destroy our watches on live television each week, proving "TIMEX takes a licking and keeps on ticking."

Then in 1984, TIMEX took the clock off the finish line and put it on your wrist creating the world's first Sports Watch. The TIMEX Ironman became your coach, your motivation and a symbol of your dedication.  Together, we've crossed nearly every finish line in the world.

With 1992 came the Indiglo Night Light which became the TIMEX signature Blue Backlight, revolutionalizing the way the world reads time in the dark.

Introducing...The Caliber Collection - Fighting Gun Violence

The Caliber Collection 
Jewelry That Gives Proceeds Back To Communities Affected By Gun Violence


The Caliber Collection from the Perfect Provenance is a unique Jewelry Collection that is working to "give-back" to communities affected by gun violence.

The oval shape of the bracelet mimics the trigger cage of a gun and serves as a reminder of the destruction that is caused when the trigger of a gun is pulled. 

Steel Bangle with a diamond
Each series carries a serial number that corresponds with one of the guns that were taken off the streets of Newark, Detroit, Hartford and San Francisco by the Police Department. The side of the bracelet is hand hammered to symbolize the hard work required, not only of the local police but of each individual, in the fight to get illegal guns off the streets of their community. 

Newark Bangle


As a continuation of their devoted and comprehensive efforts to eradicate illegal gun violence from the streets of their city, the Detroit Police Department and Rock Ventures have collaborated with Caliber Collection to create a virtuous cycle using the serial numbers from premise weapons and metal from shell casings. The result is Caliber Detroit. Available in Rose Gold Plated or White Gold Plated; one size.

The pieces are handmade, no two are exactly alike. 20% of the proceeds from each purchase will be donated to the Caliber Foundation to support victims and communities devastated by illegal gun violence. Available to purchase at www.ThePerfectProvenance.com 




The Perfect Provenance:
Opened in 2016,  The Perfect Provenance brought a unique luxury lifestyle store and cafe concept to downtown Greenwich, Connecticut. A gallery for the senses, The Perfect Provenance offers a curated, a one-of-a-kind collection of fashion, food, home and lifestyle products in our flagship Greenwich, Connecticut location, Cafe 47 and online store.

LAELIM and IGC Disclose a Diamond’s Full Journey with GIA M2M

LAELIM and IGC Disclose 
a Diamond’s Full Journey with GIA M2M
First retailer in China to participate



GIA (Gemological Institute of America) announced that Chinese retailer LAELIM Jewelry and Belgian diamond manufacturer IGC Group will pilot GIA’s M2M program that allows for complete transparency and traceability of diamonds along the value chain. This is one of the first instances where a manufacturer and retailer implemented the M2M program in partnership. 

“LAELIM Jewelry is proud to be   in cooperation with the Belgian IGC Group   the very first Chinese retailer to offer diamonds that have been evaluated by GIA for its M2M program,” said Mrs. Lin Xiang, CEO of LAELIM Jewelry. “The LAELIM brand will touch the Chinese consumer’s heart as the GIA M2M will give consumers a unique buying and exclusive owner experience in a way that has never been seen before. The digital journey from mining, through Belgian excellence in diamond cutting to the creation of the jewelry piece will create a more profound understanding of the beauty of the LAELIM brand.”

A select number of GIA-graded stones from LAELIM Jewelry have been added to the M2M program, recording each stone’s story as it moves from the mine to the consumer. IGC sources and polishes the rough diamonds, which then move to LAELIM Jewelry where consumers have the opportunity to experience their story.

“The M2M platform allows us, as a Belgian manufacturer of diamonds, to share our 106 years of heritage and excellent craftsmanship with the consumer.” says Hans Clement, sales director and partner at IGC Group. “Not only are we happy to be in this project with such reputable collaborators such as GIA and LAELIM Jewelry, but we are convinced that this digital platform creates transparency and will excite the Chinese consumer.”

M2M is a digital story telling platform that brings together GIA’s unique ability to scientifically match rough diamonds to the resulting polished gems with information that tells the compelling story of a diamond’s journey.

“We are happy to have the participation of LAELIM Jewelry and IGC Group with the M2M program. Since launching in 2017 we have seen an increase in the interest of the program” said Tom Moses, executive vice president and chief laboratory and research officer. “Consumer demands are shifting and provenance is becoming an important topic in the buying process.”

LAELIM Jewelry was founded in Shenzhen, China in 2011. They are committed to providing diamond traceability and upon establishment of their jewelry brand, IGC Group endorsed LAELIM in 2017. For more information about LAELIM Jewelry visit www.laelim.com. IGC Group holds a long history of diamond cutting as early as 1890. The company was founded in 1912 by the Claes family in Antwerp, Belgium. Today, IGC Group is one of the largest Belgian manufacturers.

‘Crowningshieldite’ - New Mineral Named in Honor of Gemology Pioneer

New Mineral Named in Honor of Gemology Pioneer
GIA scientist discovers ‘Crowningshieldite’


Researchers at GIA (Gemological Institute of America), in collaboration with researchers at the University of Padova, recently discovered Crowningshieldite, a new mineral named in honor of G. Robert Crowningshield, a pioneering figure in gemological research for more than 50 years at GIA. Crowningshieldite was discovered as an altered inclusion in two diamonds from the Letseng mine in Lesotho. GIA Research Scientist Dr. Evan M. Smith publicly announced this new mineral earlier this year at GIA’s annual research meeting and presented at GIA’s International Gemological Symposium in October.

Crowningshieldite was accepted as a mineral on Sept. 18 by the International Mineralogical Association. Smith and his team of researchers discovered crowningshieldite while examining inclusions in CLIPPIR diamonds – a variety of type IIa diamond that forms at significantly greater depths than most diamonds. Crowningshieldite is a nickel sulfide mineral with a hexagonal crystal structure and can be regarded as the high-temperature polymorph of the mineral millerite. It is also the naturally occurring analog to the synthetic compound known as α-NiS. The mineral is proposed to have formed by alteration or chemical modification of originally metallic, polyphasic inclusions. These iron and nickel-rich metallic inclusions are the most prevalent type of inclusion found in CLIPPIR diamonds.

“Discoveries such as this propel our understanding of diamonds and the earth forward; this is why research is the cornerstone of GIA’s mission,” said Tom Moses, GIA executive vice president and chief laboratory and research officer.  “I can think of no better way to honor Mr. Crowningshield’s legacy.”

G. Robert Crowningshield took GIA and the young science of gemology to new scientific heights. His first breakthrough came in 1956, when he discovered and documented the spectroscopic feature characterizing yellow irradiated diamonds. In 1971, he wrote the first report on gem quality laboratory-grown diamonds. His observations about the identification criteria for laboratory-grown diamonds discussed in that article, such as color zoning, metallic inclusions and uneven patterns of UV fluorescence, are still used today for diamond identification. Crowningshield is also recognized for reporting on many discoveries about pearls and colored stones. His 1983 landmark article described a naming convention for orange-pink “padparadscha” sapphires and he published more than a thousand brief observations in the regular Lab Notes column – that he originated in 1957 – of Gems & Gemology, GIA’s quarterly professional journal.

Smith presented details about crowningshieldite at GIA’s sixth International Gemological Symposium, held last October in Carlsbad, California. A specimen of the new mineral will be housed in GIA’s museum collection at the Institute’s headquarters in Carlsbad, California.

Heritage Filigree Jewelry Brand - Eleuterio





Heritage Filigree Jewelry Brand Eleuterio
Made US Debut at COUTURE



Heritage filigree jewelry maker Eleuterio made its US debut at COUTURE 2018 earlier this year in a strategic effort to continue expanding the Portuguese brand’s global footprint.

Founded in 1925, Eleuterio has always specialized in the art of handmade gold filigree jewelry,  an ancient technique which the company has perfected.

The company’s workshops were first  founded in 1925 in Travassos,  a northern region of Portugal known for its strong handcraft traditions in jewelry making.



The company’s namesake, Eleuterio Antunes, moved to preserve the traditional filigree jewelry craft techniques during a time when mass production and casting nearly made such precious skills extinct.



Efforts by other firms to replicate the look of filigree with new casting methods inevitably impacted the quality and finesse of the jewels and could not compare to the fine traditional  hand-worked pieces produced by the artisans of Eleuterio.



Today, Eleuterio remains honored to preserve, promote, and perpetuate the unique art of handmade filigree jewelry making which has endured in Portugal for more than 5,000 years.



Eleuterio and its workshops remain rooted in Northern Portugal where the company first began, led by the third generation of the Eleuterio family, Rosa and Luis Antunes.

All Eleuterio filigree jewelry pieces are inherently unique, exhibiting the slight differences that speak of the skilled craftsman’s hand.


Eleuterio’s collections span from contemporary to classic aesthetic influences, from traditional Portuguese motifs to Art Deco designs and organic floral designs.

Each crafted of the highest quality, the diverse yet refined filigree jewelry collections reflect the global soul of this haute, heritage jewelry brand.



Eleuterio chose  COUTURE 2018 as a step towards further global expansion, selecting the elite show as the ideal venue to reintroduce the fine art of Portuguese filigree jewelry to the United States and beyond.

About Eleuterio:Established in 1925, heritage filigree jewelry brand Eleuterio was founded in 1925, specializing in gold filigree jewelry of the highest quality. Located in Northern Portugal, the brand and workshops remain owned and operated by the third generation of the Eleuterio family, Rosa, and Luis Antunes.  Preserving and protecting a vital Portuguese ancestral tradition, the artisans of Eleuterio hand-make each filigree piece with delicate lace-like gold threads using techniques that date back over 5000 years.

Today, Eleuterio skillfully reinterprets this traditional filigree art into a contemporary,  globally inspired filigree collection crafted in gold and diamonds, available throughout Portugal and beyond.
