Raymond is unique amongst fine jewelers. Though she creates bespoke pieces for private clients and has a signature collection, the Manhattan-based entrepreneur also sources antique and heirloom jewelry from around the globe for her estate collection. That mix of historical jewelry and new items means there is something for everyone in Hollywood. Vintage-loving celebrities like Sarah Jessica Parker, who selected one of Raymond’s estate diamond watches for the premiere of And Just Like That, seek out her work, as do minimalists like Gwyneth Paltrow, who wore the jumbo cobalt chain link necklace to a Goop event in November.
Naturally, jewelry aficionado Rihanna has made several of Raymond’s pieces part of her permanent collection. In her pregnancy reveal photos, she sports one of the brand’s diamond signet rings, while her many at-home Instagram posts feature Raymond’s golden zodiac necklaces prominently. The vintage tanzanite and sapphire cross she unveiled at the Gucci show may be Rihanna’s boldest acquisition to date, one that proves great gems never lose their luster.
