Joe’s Special Box – Volume 72

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and A Collector’s Things

Absolutely adorable…  what more accurate description could there be for these Victorian earrings?  They’re quite small, barely skimming the bottom of the earlobe.  Created from a rosy 14 karat gold and accented with a single cabochon opal, these earrings never made the showroom floor.  Joe scooped them up and tucked them into his special box.  I love how simple the design is…  just a tiny square, set on edge.  A series of eight delicate beads adorn each corner and the space between.  

Look at this clever catch…  a small triangular loop hinges up to snag the bottom of the wire, securing it in the ear.  Sometimes it really is the little things that make the world go round.  These perfectly petite gems are available now for just $150.  Call us today.  ♥

Oui Oui!

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and a Delicious Ring

$1280!  What?  I’m starting backwards today… mostly because I can’t believe the price of this turn of the century beauty.  Made in the early 1900’s, this little ring is nothing short of stunning.  It twinkles in the sunlight, positively resplendent.

It was made entirely by hand, with a center bezel set Old European Cut diamond that weighs approximately .10 carat.  Eight rose cut diamonds (also bezel set) accentuate the heart of this gem, serving to create a floral feel.  An intricate lacy design radiates out from the middle in a series of eight concentric circles.  They are artfully entwined like miniature petals on this Chrysanthemum like bloom.  Each platinum wire has been carefully decorated with a milgrain edge, adding a flourish to the exquisite filigree.  

Even the under gallery of the ring showcases a beautiful lattice pattern.  The fine quality of the workmanship lends itself to the French, although it is unmarked and unsigned.  It embellishes the hand with quiet elegance, no other adornment is needed.  

Let me repeat myself – $1280.  Call.  Text.  Send an email.  Stop by the store.  But please, someone buy this ring!  It’s simply too good to miss!

Joe’s Special Box – Volume 71

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and A Collector’s Things

Since 1780, the House of Chaumet has been synonymous with the finest jewelry that Paris France has to offer…  more than two centuries of fine, handcrafted pieces designed to delight.  The original founder of this powerhouse, Marie-Etienne Nitot, created the wedding jewelry for Napoleon as well as the coronation crown and sword hilt!  Now that’s a pedigree worth talking about, right?  

Chaumet is known for quality – the best of the best.  This sweet little band many not look like much, but demonstrates that even the simplest of designs can be outstanding when done right.  18 karat yellow gold is the perfect metal choice to highlight the rich red tones of the three oval rubies burnished into the top of this classic band.  In the space between the rubies are a matched pair of marquise diamonds, set in east/west fashion.  At the top, this ring is 5 mm wide and tapers to 3 mm at the back.  It’s so comfortable, it’s easy to forget that you’re even wearing a ring (Definitely the mark of great design!).  Wear it alone or stack it with almost anything…  the possibilities are only limited by your imagination.  Available now in Joe’s Special Box for just $980.00.
