Jay Feder Jewelers – Boca Raton

I recently had the privilege to visit the third and newest location of the Jay Feder Jewelers empire in Boca Raton!  Anyone that knows me, knows that I love a little ‘frosting’, whether it be my low key finds from the mall or my elegant gems that I’ve been given for special occasions!  So naturally, I had a complete blast trying on the most exotic, trendy, and rare gems that this unique and welcoming family business holds.

Right when I walked into their 4,200 square food showroom in Boca, I was immediately greeted by their down-to-earth but professional and poised staff.  All around me, was a setting that I could only describe as “sophistication meets warmth and relaxation”.  The showroom contains the work of over 20 unique worldwide jewelry designers, and what I especially liked, is that these pieces are at all different price points.  What appeals to me, when I shop, are stores that I can go to for more affordable and trendy looks, as well as more meaningful and staple pieces-  and Jay Feder has both.  If you’re looking for a trendy, high quality, and unique piece for your daughter’s 18th birthday, or a one of a kind high end engagement ring or anniversary piece for your significant other, this place has it all!

Not only is the quality and variety of their pieces exceptional, but the setting itself is warm, inviting, and simply a place where you just want to hang with your girls!  What I love about the setting, is that it exemplifies exactly what Marc and his wife, Devorah, wanted to accomplish…it’s the thought that “when you’re here, you’re family.”   I grew up with lots of entrepreneurs in my family, and because of that, I have always admired and supported family owned businesses.  Marc and Devorah took over this 40 year family owned business less than a decade ago, and you can really tell that they have perfectly molded being “trendy” and “fun” with being family oriented and traditional.  A large part of their showroom is dedicated to a gorgeous lounge area where you can sip champagne and hang out with your girlfriends, all while looking at the immaculate 500 gallon saltwater fish tank!  It was so much fun trying on different pieces, learning about the background of the designer (who, by the way, Devorah has a friendly relationship with each and every one of them!), and hanging out in the classy lounge with some temporary frosting on :).

Marc and Devorah provide a lot of services other than selling you jewelry (the most gorgeous jewelry, I should add!); they host private engagement parties, conduct rare gem searches, create customized jewelry, and…one of my favorite things they do, customized jewelry stylings.  Devorah told me a story of how she accompanied a bridal party the day they were prepping for the wedding, and she brought some gorgeous pieces and styled each bridesmaid, mother of the bride, and the bride the day of the wedding.  Talk about dream wedding!

Jay Feder Jewelers is a definite must-go if you, your friends, your spouse, ANYONE, is interested in jewelry and some good fun!  If you don’t live in Boca, you’re still in luck- they have two other locations in Denver and New York City!

Jay Feder Jewelers is open every day of the week except Saturday, and is located at 6859 SW 18th St, Boca Raton, FL 33433.

Thank you for reading! Let me know your favorite jewelry pieces, I’d love to hear about your favorite item and what it means to you! 🙂

 

The Perfect Wrap Dress

 

 

 

 

I love the holidays!  They come with travel, planning, decorations, food, stress (lol am I right?!), and lots of self reflection!  We had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday in Naples with my mom and dad and two sisters that flew in for Thanksgiving (I’m the middle child- shout out to all my middle children out there!), and then we spent some time with Chase’s dad in Fort Myers.  I love eating all of our family traditions (I am Middle Eastern and Italian, so we have a LOT of traditional food to eat!) and celebrating our traditions.

For Thanksgiving day, I wore this gorgeous dress from Scatto Clothing, my new favorite  boutique based out of California!  I lived in California for almost 10 years, so I love fashion and the chic yet laid back style that California boutiques bring to me.  The dress can be found here and can be worn with heels, sandals, or booties.  It fits true to size too, which I love!  Their customer service is so easy to use, and they answer questions based on your body type/sizes so quickly!  Use code Jennifer10 for a 10% discount on your entire order!

I hope you all have a wonderful rest of your week! Chase and I have a couple of events to attend and then this weekend we are headed up to Chicago to go to the Chicago Emmy’s!

 

 

New Beginnings

Happy Sunday everybody!

For those of you who already know and have been following along on my journey, I started my blog and my fashion and lifestyle Instagram (@beachesandbaubles) a few months ago.  The journey has been fun, frustrating, and very rewarding.  One of the aspects that I was looking forward to, blog posting, has been one of the aspects that have intimidated me the most!  Technology, web sites, etc., have always intimidated me, and I have used every excuse in the book to not keep this website updated.  I’m done with worrying and fretting about if each post looks good, what am I going to write about, how does WordPress work, and I’ve decided to just dive in head first!  I hope you enjoy this journey with me, and I am always open to words of encouragement or some tough constructive criticism! 🙂

Love you all!
