Founded in 2005 by Portland, Oregon jewelry designer Michelle Zimmerman, the pretty, delicate pieces in silver and 14 karat gold chains with semi precious stones, pearls, and crystals draw on her family heritage of creativity and her own world travels.
Named for her grandfather, Raymond, a noted Pacific Northwest lapidary and gemologist, Michelle learned to merge gems with jewelry designs. "He would emerge from his shop with these beautiful gems, and I imagined myself wearing them as necklaces and bracelets," Michelle recalls. "He helped me realize that I could turn my visions into concrete pieces, and seeing my sketches come to life has been an amazing experience."
Delicate Raymond offers jewelry wearers personalized simplicity and numerous options. Chains can be made with custom lengths and the pieces can be monogrammed or engraved with a name or initials. Wearing pieces singly or together gives an added unique touch so that no two pieces are alike.
Celebrity fans of Delicate Raymond include Mischa Barton, Carrie Underwood, Marcia Cross and Tori Spelling. Delicate Raymond has also appeared in the pages of W, InStyle, People Stylewatch, Lucky, US Weekly and Womanís Day, in addition to the red carpet at the Golden Globes, The Oscars and L.A. Fashion Week.
