Take Two – Blue Light Special

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and Motivating Factors

Remember this beauty from yesterday?  For those of you who are just tuning in today, we are conducting an exciting experiment.  This stunner is accompanied by a certificate from the International Gemological Institute of America, valuing the ring at $20,050.00.  For four days (this is day two) we are offering it for $12,750.00… AND we have promised to sweeten the pot for each of the four days that the ring remains unsold.  I am about to add a little sugar…

How sweet is this classic platinum and 18 karat yellow gold wedding band?  It’s the perfect complement to the oval diamond ring…  a cool platinum center warmed by the outer gold edges.  This band sells for $1200.  But today, when you purchase the oval diamond ring, you get the band for FREE.  I know what you’re thinking…  we’ve lost our minds.  Let’s not call it crazy, let’s call it added incentive.  

The question is, will this band be the clincher?  Will someone take advantage of this deal?  Or will it hang on until tomorrow when we add another twist?  Stay tuned!

Joe’s Special Box – Volume 51

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and A Collector’s Things

Old rose gold – it’s so romantic.  The soft pink undertones are much more subtle than modern rose gold.  It’s timeless.  This trio of rings from Joe’s Special Box are perfect examples of the beauty of old rose gold.  

Take a moment and appreciate the incomparable attributes of each one.  I love the tiny details – flower buds, trumpet-shaped flares, beaded edges, and asymmetrical scroll-work.  They’re exceptional and uniquely Victorian.  Call me old-fashioned, but I’ll take true antique over vintage-inspired every single time.  Whether they be set with Old European Cut diamonds or rose cuts, the authenticity of these rings speaks for itself.  When selecting a ring (An engagement ring or otherwise) be sure to choose something as individual as you are – a real one-of-a-kind.  Priced from $450-$1950, this dynamic trilogy is located in Joe’s Special Box.  

Antique Re-Imagined

Baubles, Bling, and Upcycled Things

I’m not a trendy girl.  My mailbox is not filled with fashion magazines nor do I follow celebrity blogs to see what they’re wearing.  I have an eye for beauty.  I know what good looks like.  Occasionally the hottest trends and my personal tastes mesh.  When the bar necklace craze finally reached Grove City about three years ago, I knew it wasn’t going to be a passing fancy, it was a new classic. 

When I approached Joe about converting some of our pins into necklaces, he was skeptical, to say the least.  But I twisted his arm.  And now, there’s no question, they are some of our most popular items. The tiny ones made from lingerie pins and the longer ones made from bar pins… these delicate beauties have definitely created quite a stir!  

This delicious necklace is the latest one to come out of our shop.  It began its life as an elongated bow-tie shaped pin.  Fashioned in the early 1900s in classic Edwardian style, it’s the epitome of simple elegance.  The “knot” in the middle is a double-edged square turned on its side with an Old European cut diamond winking from the center.  The loops or wings of the bow tie are carefully crafted using a heavily engraved outer framework and an entwined wire inside.  A small pair of bezel set blue sapphires to add a hint of color.  It’s moderately priced at $950.00.

As a pin, it could have been in our inventory for years.  Instead, we re-imagined it!  By removing the pin stem, and adding two tiny rings and a cable chain, it has become new again.  The marriage of modern style and antique craftsmanship will last a lifetime.  If you too have an eye for style, come to Joden where the possibilities are only limited by your imagination.

You can go to a museum and look, or come to Joden and touch.
