Emerging Trend: Men’s Engagement Rings

By Jenna Fish May 22, 2018
Men's Engagement Rings

Engagement rings have always been a symbol of a promise and a commitment to get married in the near future. While traditionally given to women by their boyfriends, engagement rings are becoming more popular for men to wear. Some women are choosing to propose to their boyfriends rather than the other way around and they want a physical representation of their love to present to their boyfriends upon proposing. Additionally, LBGTQ+ couples are getting engaged now that gay marriage is legal in the U.S., and they are electing to wear men’s engagement rings to show the world their love and commitment. Outside of these two circumstances, some men simply wish to have a symbol of their engagement. Because of all of these reasons, men’s engagement rings are becoming increasingly common and are a growing trend amongst today’s engaged couples.

Men's Engagement Ring Styles

The great thing about men’s engagement rings is that there are so many styles to choose from. Whether you want something simple and small, bold and ornate or unique and personal, J.R. Dunn Jewelers has a large selection of stylish men’s engagement rings, and you’re sure to find the perfect one. Take a look at the different styles available and some examples of each.

Make Mother’s Day Memorable with Mikimoto

Mikimoto Gifts

In July of 1893, the first cultured pearl was successfully produced. The man credited with this creation, Kokichi Mikimoto, went on to patent his thoroughly researched techniques for pearl cultivation, and in 1899, he opened his first pearl boutique in Tokyo. Soon after, he opened stores in London, Paris and several other major cities.

Today, Kokichi Mikimoto’s artistic and scientific discoveries live on. The Mikimoto name is closely associated with innovative jewelry design, superb craftsmanship, superior quality, unparalleled passion and stunning, timeless elegance. The current Mikimoto line includes gorgeous pearl earrings, bracelets, rings and necklaces, and here at J.R. Dunn, we are honored to be an authorized retailer of the Mikimoto brand.

Mother’s Day is quickly approaching, and we don’t want mom’s gift to get forgotten or lost in the shuffle! On May 13th, be sure to give mom something special that shows her how much you care. You can make this Mother’s Day especially memorable by getting her a gorgeous Mikimoto piece to thank her for everything she’s done for you over the years.

Our Favorite Watches from Baselworld 2018

By Jenna Fish April 19, 2018
Rolex GMT-Master II Jubilee

Considered “The Cosmopolitan Watch,” The GMT-Master II still boasts its original iconic bezel, but with a myriad of new and innovative features. The 24-hour, red and blue ceramic Cerachrom insert, the bi-directional rotating bezel, the newly designed lugs and sides of the Oyster case and the five-link Jubilee bracelet are just a few of the stunning components of this watch. While our favorite version of the GMT-Master II is made completely from Oystersteel, this watch is also available in 18 ct Everose gold and Everose Rolesor, which is a combination of Oystersteel and the refined, exclusive alloy called Everose. Each of the GMT-Master IIs are equipped with the newest technology in watchmaking, the new-generation caliber 3285.

The history behind this watch is one of the reasons we still love it today. At the request of Pan Am Airways, this watch was created to help flight crews know what time it was in two different time zones at once. The iconic watch has become recognizable across the globe, particularly in the release of the newest GMT-Master II pictured here, which boasts the original red and blue ceramic...

Ann Marie Dunn Honored with Rachel Wheeler, Heart Soul and Service

Ann Marie Dunn is the President and CEO of J.R. Dunn Jewelers. She founded the company with her husband, Jim Dunn, shortly after they married in 1969, and their drive, commitment and customer-focused attitude has made J.R. Dunn what it is today.

Her love of helping others paired with her excellence as a woman in the business world recently resulted in Ann Marie’s reception of a coveted award. The Zonta Club of Greater Deerfield Beach honored Ann Marie Dunn with the Heart, Soul and Service Award at a recent brunch, esteeming her for her contribution to empowering and advancing women in the workplace. Ann Marie’s work ethic, drive to succeed and can-do attitude were established in her from a very young age and are clearly foundational characteristics that helped her attain the success she has today.

As a young child of only 10, Ann Marie’s family immigrated to the United States from Abruzzi, Italy. She played a large part in helping her entire family learn English and even served as the interpreter for her father’s cabinet business for a while. She worked in his shop every day after school from the age of 11 until she graduated from high school. Eventually, she landed a job at IBM as an executive secretary.
