Celebrating “New Jewels, New Rules” from the Oscar-worthy and diamond proposal bling to school carpool-chic, the grand opening of Jay Feder Jewelers (JFJ) honored the strides of two impactful community nonprofits: Adolph & Rose Levis Jewish Community Center and Boca West Children’s Foundation. Hundreds of guests mingled and toured South Florida’s newest fine jewelry destination and its JFJ custom necklaces, earrings, bracelets, engagement rings and wedding bands as well as exclusive designer collections from around the globe. Embracing its respected 40-year family jeweler tradition founded in Denver, Marc and Devorah Feder bring a youthful, fresh and adventurous approach to JFJ’s new flagship expansion in Boca Raton (that is also home to 10,000 diamonds plus 33+ seahorses seen frolicking daily in the store’s gallery and lounge areas).

On display throughout the evening were JFJ donations supporting the silent auctions for the Adolph & Rose Levis Jewish Community Center’s Jewels, Jeans & The J annual fundraiser and the annual golf tournament fundraiser. A choice of three items — a one-of-a-kind necklace and two pairs of work-of-art earrings — will be auctioned for BWCC in April and a JFJ’s custom gold and diamond mantra bracelet was selected for the JCC’s largest annual fundraiser. Winning bidder for the mantra bracelet gets to boast their children’s or grandchildren’s names, sharing their favorite saying or keeping centered with their own personal mantra (i.e. LOVE, HOPE, PEACE).

Distinguished in the fine jewelry industry for its discovering and showcasing obscure pieces from rising jewelry designers around the globe, JFJ features 20+ exclusive lines from several countries including France, Italy, Brazil, Canada in addition to its own JFJ custom designs to fit each client’s budget, ranging in price from $1,000 diamond studs to multi-million dollar pieces. JFJ designs and presents one-of-a-kind pieces so that each client leaves its 4,200-square-foot, $1.8 million free-standing store with selections that they will not see anyone else wearing at red carpet galas, in carpool lanes and PTO meetings, at family celebrations, on date nights as well as in the board room.

The Boca West Children’s Foundation was established in 2010 as a not for profit 501(c)3 charitable organization whose mission is to identify and fund projects in the Boca Raton and Palm Beach County areas to aid at-risk children and their families in need. Coming about as a desire by thousands of members of the Boca West Country Club to give back in some way to the community, an independent board was established, separate from the country club. Since its inception, the Foundation has raised more than $5 million dollars to fund specific programs of 25 local charitable organizations.

Jay Feder Jewelers is located at 6859 S.W. 18 Street, Boca Raton, FL  33433. For more information, visit
