The Gem Of Islamorada
Blue Marlin Jewelry
Shops like Blue Marlin Jewelry don’t just pop up and become landmarks overnight. Just ask owner, Armando Gonzalez. Armando launched his Islamorada store over 20 years ago when he was still a full-time fire fighter and paramedic for Miami Dade County.
A few years back, he decided to hang up his badge and fully embrace his passion for jewelry.
Today, Blue Marlin is the Keys’ only authorized Rolex dealer and the premier destination for fine jewelry, luxury watches, rare, exotic stones, and stunning works by renowned designers.
This is where you can find unique cable creations by Alor, perfectly cut diamonds from Hearts of Fire, lustrous golden pearls by Jewelmer, and ancient/historical pieces including coins from the famous 1662 shipwreck, Neustra Señora de Atocha. As an avid fisherman, Armando also pays homage to Isamorada’s reputation as being the“Sportfishing Capital of the World” by showcasing an outstanding selection of nautical-inspired pieces, including limited edition designs by his good pal, renowned marine artist, Roberto “Pasta” Pantaleo.
Needless to say, the locals down here all know that Blue Marlin is THE place to go when you’re looking for quality jewelry with unique and custom designs that you won’t see in any other stores. And now, you do, too.
