I learned so much working with my father in this incredible industry
Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) April 27, 2009
LAMONT Jewelry, Beverly Hills, announced today that it has launched a new International diamond jewelry brand based around the direction and concepts of prominent jewelry designer Monty Abramov. LAMONT produces heirloom and unique diamond jewelry designs, and bridal jewelry around select, rare and exclusive polished diamonds under Abramov's direction.
Monty Abramov is the son of late diamond industry veteran Raphael Abramov. "I learned so much working with my father in this incredible industry," said Monty Abramov. "Over time we have developed close relationships with some of the world's finest jewelers and industry professionals. LAMONT will continue to expand those relationships through the passion of my work," he added.
The first magnificent jewel launched in the LAMONT collection is a classic 10 carat pear shape and baguette diamond ring set in platinum. "Bold, elegant and eternal - a true treasure," said Monty Abramov. The new LAMONT creations focus on timeless, classic and collectable fine jewels crafted in platinum and 18 karat gold. The collection highlights round, fancy shapes and natural colored diamonds ranging from one carat to over twenty carats. Future collections by LAMONT will offer limited jeweled timepieces, estate and deco designer items, and collectable jewels studded with pearls and precious colored gemstones.
"Our industry has experienced some very difficult challenges in this economy, but demand for bridal jewelry in both engagement, anniversary and diamond upgrades remains steady and even strong in some markets," said Monty Abramov.
The first collection of '36 Fabulous Diamonds' will be photographed and documented in an exquisite Jewelry Book LAMONT will publish in 2010.
Lyle M. Rose, President of Jewelry Brands, the Beverly Hills based consulting firm representing Monty and LAMONT Jewelry said, "Surprisingly, rare diamonds and precious metals have fared well against other investments that failed. Diamond mining and wholesale trading has dwindled but I believe that diamond values and jewelry demand will eventually increase as the world supply becomes scarcer and the economy develops positive momentum."
"Millions have seen Monty Abramov's designs in People, Town & Country, Vanity Fair, Harpers Bazaar and Christies. Monty has a talent for creating fine jewels in any price category," continued Mr. Rose. "Consumers have enjoyed and continue to wear his designs under the Techline, Mirabelle 18k, and other well known brands. While the LAMONT brand will focus primarily on the premium market, Monty will create diamond jewelry that is both innovative and attainable," he added.
LAMONT will preview the collection by appointment only to collectors and to prominent, select independent retailers in the United States. LAMONT will launch globally at the Hong Kong Jewellery and Watch Show in the new Premier Pavilion, September 23-27, 2009.
