The most important thing any company can offer to consumers, in addition to a great product, is great customer service. Michelle Zimmerman and her jewelry company, Delicate Raymond, offer both. Michelle launched Delicate Raymond, named after her grandfather, in 2005 (with just $1,000 in start up capital!).
Whether it’s incorporating intricate vintage wear offset by romantic hints of blush gems, or mixing semi precious stones with locally sourced gold and silver, the Delicate Raymond collection is a reflection of a rich family tradition blended with cultural influences captured from moments spent abroad.
Michelle’s pieces have been featured on the pages of W, InStyle, People Stylewatch, Lucky, US Weekly and Woman’s Day magazines. They have also adorned the necks of young Hollywood socialites, singers, and actresses including Carrie Underwood, Lauren Conrad, Tori Spelling, Mischa Barton, Marcia Cross, Bridgette Moynahan and Hayden Panettiere.
Michelle happened to notice a tweet of mine commenting on my love for the Panama Rosary Bracelet:
The “Panana Collection” is inspired by Michelle’s trip to Panama in 2007 where she visited a 14th century chapel named the “Golden Alter of San Jose” in Panama City and where she purchased a dainty rosary from a street vender. The collection features crosses of various shapes, sizes and colors, and ordained with pearls, crystals or Swarovski crystal flowers. The Crystal Side Cross bracelet is the perfect companion to the Rosary bracelet, and will probably be my next purchase, since Michelle was kind enough to send along a 20% off coupon code with my gift!
The Panama Rosary bracelet is…well, delicate! The champagne colored crystals are gorgeous, and the cross is tiny, dainty and simple. The extension falls about 1-2 inches from the wrist, so it doesn’t get in the way at all and doesn’t look too long. It can be worn alone, but certainly is a great addition to any bracelet stack, so long as the other pieces aren’t too heavy and overpowering. This should be the “noticeable” piece in any stack.
Delicate Raymond’s “Vintage Monogram Collection” features this gorgeous, pearl-knotted Anniversary Monogram Necklace. I love the uniqueness of the off-to-the-side monogram!! And you have a pearl choice of diamond, onyx, sapphire, black diamond, champagne, platinum! Decisions, decisions!
There’s even a few pieces for children, including a Mini Montmarte Bracelet featuring a hand-engraved name plate:
