  • IWC Portofino Midsize Automatic: In store at Ace & Spyer Jewelers


    The IWC Portofino collection is sophisticated elegance at its finest. The perfectly balanced size of this watch works even if you have a slender wrist. At 37mm, the case is not too big or too small.


    600 IWC Portofino Midsize IW458103 Ace Jewelers Amsterdam-1


    The silver dial has a beautiful warm glow that is accented by the rose gold hands and index. The details are what make this model special. It is really beautiful with the small dots accenting the index every five minutes- a style that is seen throughout the Portofino women's collection. The puristic design of this model has just enough luxury with the 66 diamonds set around the bezel of the timepiece. This watch is powered by an automatic movement with a 38 hour power reserve. This model is fitted with a red alligator strap, and it is available also in an array of colors such as raspberry pink, brown, black, and grey.

    We have this model in store at Ace & Spyer Jewelers. You can view our entire Portofino collection online in our eBoutique here.

  • New from Bulgari: The Octo Solotempo Ultra Nero


    When it comes to Bulgari, not only does the word luxury come to mind, but structure does as well. The Bulgari Octo stays true to its namesake, the octagonal form of the watch is sleek and stunning.

    The Bulgari Octo Solotempo Ultranero is available in many variations of materials. As a goldsmith, I have always loved the combination of black with rich colored gold. Pictured above is the 41mm rose gold bezel, hands and index. The gold almost glows next to the black dial and black steel case. The ref. 102485 is powered by the automatic caliber BVL193, with a power reserve lasting over 50 hours.

    The Bulgari Octo Solotempo Ultranero, ref. 102581, features a black steel case and bezel, and a rose gold index, hands and crown. The ref. 102581 is a little bit more modest with the all black steel case and bezel. The rose gold index and hands really pop and make this watch easy to read. My favorite part about the Octo collection from Bulgari is the beautiful case form. The case is as architectural as any modern-day skyscraper.

    We have both of these models in stock in our boutique, Ace & Dik Jewelers, and online in our eBoutique here.

  • This just in from Basel World: The Longines Railroad now in store at Ace & Dik Jewelers


    600 longines railroad r888 ace jewelers amsterdam-1


    One of our favorite novelties from Basel World this year is without a doubt the Longines Railroad. I love a watch that uses a nice story as the basis of its inspiration, and the Longines Railroad certainly pays homage to the company's 100 year history in supplying timepieces to railway employees. Reliable trainservice is only as successful as their time keeping. Longines used to produce pocket watches for the train conductors so that they could be sure to keep their trains running on schedule.


    600 Longines Rail Road ace jewelers amsterdam-1 (1)


    The Longines Railroad stays true to keeping the time as easy as possible to read by utilizing a 24 hour index. The bright white dial is crystal clear and the watch is powered by the Longines movement caliber L888.2. R.R. 888 is printed on the dial, referencing both the movement and the Railroad. The 40mm case has a stainless steel back engraved with a picture of a train. The automatic timepiece is completed with a black alligator strap.

    You can find this model on our website here, or stop by Ace & Dik Jewelers to try this watch on in person.

  • Diamonds, Carats and Carob Seeds

    Diamonds are considered as one of the most sought after natural materials that the world has to offer. After all, who doesn't get mesmerized by the sparkle and glimmer on a perfectly cut diamond?

    Whether you prefer a half carat diamond or something loud and proud such as this six carat Royal Asscher Brilliant, the most important thing is that you pick out a diamond that fits your style and taste. In some areas of the world, a two carat diamond is the end-all-be-all of engagement rings. In other corners of the world, less IS more when it comes to diamond carat weight. Luckily, at the end of the day, the size of the diamond does not equate to the love one has for another.

    There is actually a much more interesting story as to how diamond carat weight came to be. Centuries ago, early gem traders needed something to weigh out the diamonds before selling them. Carob seeds come from the Carob tree, which is found across the Mediterranean region, Africa, the Middle East and in the Canary Islands. The tiny little seeds found inside the carob tree leaves are all almost the exact same weight. Carob seeds were from then on out used to measure the weight of a diamond. Hence the name, carat, is used for the measurement of a diamond.

    Present day, one carat weighs exactly 0.20 grams. While there use to be a tiny difference in weight when it comes to carob seeds, now a carat is officially the exact same weight world wide. Sometimes, you will also hear diamonds be referred to as a 50 point diamond. One 50 point diamond is the same thing as half a carat. Luckily today, with all of the modern technology, carob seeds are no longer used to weigh diamonds. This filters out any variant that can effect the actual weight of a diamond.
