Timing is Everything

At  Leeds & Son Fine Jewelers, there’s no time like the present. The El Paseo store, which specializes in elegant, meticulously engineered watches and exquisite jewelry, knew the time was right for an interior nip and tuck.
“We wanted a fresh look for the start of season,” says Community Relations Director Christine Stein. “We’ve been in the same Palm Desert location for five years. We were ready for an update.”

Clients are already commenting on the warmth of the new look and feel, Stein observes. “We went with dark chocolates and dark leather,” she says. “Of course, we’re keeping our trademark royal blue.”

The redesign includes new carpet, marble, lighting, display fixtures, and artwork (the store partners with local galleries, according to Stein). A few new designers and an exciting calendar of events also enhance the store’s fresh vibe.

“We’re very excited to be carrying Scott Kay jewelry for men and Swiss watch designer Frederique Constant,” Stein says. 

For the ladies, hot jewelry designer Franco Pianegonda will make a rare U.S. appearance at Leeds & Son on Dec. 13 for a private showing. And next month offers a trunk show and the fall watch expo. (Visit the store’s website for a complete schedule.)

Opening in 1947, Leeds & Son’s pursuit of the perfect synergy between aesthetic beauty and functionality materialized into an extensive selection of world-class watches. Carrying prestigious names, such as Rolex, Patek Philippe, Mikimoto, Lazare Kaplan, Como Italia, and more, Leeds & Son really sets the pace when it comes to fine time pieces.

Driven by a commitment to precise products and customer satisfaction, Leeds & Son provides an on-site, state-of-the-art service department staffed by industry-trained professionals. Master jewelers are also on hand to design and repair custom jewelry.

If the mere mention of Rolex, Patek Philippe, or Frederique Constant makes you tick; if imagining Pianegonda against your skin takes your breath away, stop by Leeds & Son in the heart of El Paseo. Take in the new look and leave with something you will treasure for a lifetime.
