Me, too.

Baubles, Bling, and Right Hand Rings

Simply put, a right hand ring is any ring worn on your right hand…  but the symbolism can be so much more.  There have been many slogans associated with right hand rings, two of the most memorable ones include “Me, not we” and “Raise your Right Hand.”  Both statements honor strong, independent, and successful women.  I consider myself to be all of those things. 

The thing I am most proud of  is my family.  Every day  I am a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, and an aunt.  I am also an employee, a co-worker, and a friend…  the list goes on.  In the hustle and bustle of every day life, it’s easy to forget who I am outside of these other identities.  Often times, your own needs are last on the list.   A right hand ring is a constant reminder.  It doesn’t say “Me, first,” but rather “Me, too.”

This photo features three Victorian rings, any of which would make a perfect right hand ring.  Set with opals, seed pearls, and vintage cut diamonds – these rings are all moderately priced under $500.00. 

These two rings are available on our site.  The first ring, constructed of 14 karat yellow gold, contains seven diamonds that weigh .25 carats and sells for $675.00.  The second piece contains a striking pair of fiery opals cut in cabochon style.  These two stones are further accented by three center diamonds.  It can be yours for just $1800.00. 

Check out these beauties and many others in our showroom at Joden Jewelers.  Find a right hand ring that speaks to you, and about you.  Find a ring that says “Me, too.”

And One for Luck

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and Irish Things

Yesterday, people everywhere donned green shirts, green socks, even headbands with shamrocks bouncing on top.    Merrymaking ranged from parades to religious observances.  Even the Lenten fast has been known to be lifted in honor of  the day.  Perhaps you are also participated in the joviality of St. Patrick’s Day. 

Millions of green beers were raised in celebration of the heritage and history of Ireland.  St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated in more countries than any other national festival. 

The shamrock became the symbol for this day when St. Patrick arrived in Ireland to share Christianity with the Irish people.  He used a young sprig of clover to explain the Holy Trinity.  The three leaves are also thought to symbolize faith, hope, and love. 

Occasionally, a clover will have a fourth leaf…  for luck.  The luck of the Irish. 

At Joden we have shamrocks with three leaves, and some with four.  These are just a few examples.  Be sure to stop by our showroom to see these little green beauties.  Until then…

May you always find blue skies above your head,

Shamrocks beneath your feet,

Laughter and joy aplenty,

Kindness from all you meet,

Good friends and kin to miss you if ever you choose to roam,

And a path that’s been cleared by angels themselves

To carry you safely home.

– An Irish Blessing

All That Glitters Is Gold

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and Golden Things

Joden Jewelers is nestled in the heart of Grove City, Pennsylvania.  With a population hovering around 8000, it’s more Mayberry than Manhattan.  If you’re the kind of girl who has your eye on current trends and hot new styles, you should probably know that we tend to trail about two years behind the rest of the world.  Until now. 

While yellow gold is making a splash on the Red Carpet in Hollywood, and popping up on the New York fashion runways, our customers are also requesting this throwback metal.  For more than twenty years, white metals have reigned supreme – platinum, white gold, and sterling silver.  But for the last couple years, yellow gold has been slowly inching its way back into the spotlight.

Some are calling it sleek and trendy, while others say its vintage-inspired.  Either way, it seems like the natural richness of yellow gold is here to stay.  But don’t put away all your white metals – just warm them up with a classic piece, perhaps a pair of antique earrings like these.

The first pair are Etruscan Revival.  Etruscan Revival was a movement during the Grand Period (1860-1885) of the Victorian Era.  Artisans revived the art of ancient techniques using corded wire, filigree, and granulation.  These earrings are made from 18 karat yellow gold with a tiny diamond in the center of each.  They are available on our website for just $1550.00.

If you’re a diamond girl, then the second pair of earrings are for you!  Made in classic lever-back style with two Old Mine Cut diamonds on each one, these are perfect for every day wear.  Priced at $2500.00. 

From Mayberry to Manhattan and everywhere in between – Go for the gold!
