Joe’s Special Box – Volume 70

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and A Collector’s Things

Occasionally, I find a piece in Joe’s Special Box that makes me go “Hmmm?”  This ring definitely made me stop and take a second look, and then a third.  Finally, I took it out of the little plastic bag it was floating around in to give it more than just a cursory glance. 

I slid it onto the middle finger of my left hand… I was surprised at how easily is nestled into that spot and how much I liked the look of it.  The band is wide – really wide (15 mm), reaching nearly knuckle to knuckle.  The expanse of the ring is covered in a rich olive green enamel with an 18 karat yellow gold border on each side.  Featured on the top center are a series of three round symbols, each one filled with opalescent enamel and round brilliant diamond accents.  A linear tag inside names the designer, Nouvelle Bague.

Founded in 1976 by Leopoldo Poli, their designs are deeply rooted in the traditions and craftsmanship of Florence.  Bold patterns showcasing creative color combinations are the heart and soul of the brand.  The hand enameled jewels carry an air of uniqueness that makes them instantly special to the wearer.  

A bit of research revealed that this particular band retailed for $4,250.  Although our ring has never been worn (pristine condition!), it is still considered estate.  We are offering this beauty for just $1,950 – a huge savings!  If you’re craving a high end piece of signed jewelry, this one is for you.

“Wearing a piece of jewellery from Nouvelle Bague is simultaneously

communicating an idea of preciousness, strength, and light.”

I Want Candy

Baubles, Bling, and a Super Sweet Ring

If ever there were a perfect mother’s ring for me – this is it!  My boys were born in April and May, making their birthstones diamond and emerald, respectively.  I have never wanted a family ring (at least not in the old-fashioned sense) and I am not usually a fan of emeralds.  BUT seriously!  This is a showstopping, eye-popping beauty.  It practically jumps off the finger.  

The classic two-stone twin bypass design is done to perfection with a pair of marquise brilliant cut stones.  First, we have a gem fine bright green emerald (probably Columbian).  This is a natural stone – no lab-grown emeralds for us!   This color can only be described as emerald green – and the clarity!  Not a spot to be seen!  This quality is rare, and quite hard to find.  Not to be outdone, check out that diamond.  It weighs in at 1.09 carats.  The high white tone is the ideal complement to the glowing green of the emerald.  What a combination!  Ten baguette cut diamonds arch up each side of the band, creating an elegant swirl of sparkle.  

Made entirely of platinum, this bauble brings the bling.  It’s from our estate collection – pre-owned, but not antique.  Most likely made in the late 1960’s or early 1970’s, this is one cocktail ring you don’t want to miss.  Fancy shaped diamonds are making quite a splash this year, but there’s no doubt the marquise is reigning supreme.  Add this one to your wardrobe today…  it’s priced to sell at $17,500.  Call me for additional details.  Dial 800.747.7552 and ask for Joden Girl.  ♥

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

Joe’s Special Box – Volume 69

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and A Collector’s Things

Nine years.  That’s how long the Edwardian Period lasted.  From 1901-1910 – this era produced some of the most beautiful and highly sought after jewelry of all time.  In the early days, platinum masterpieces featured a yellow gold base, like this ethereal gem…

A stunning combination of Old European Cut diamonds, Rose Cut diamonds, and one natural pearl create pure magic.  The seven larger stones have a combined weight of 1.50 carats, while an additional 39 rose cut diamonds amp up the bling factor.  Every knife-edge is hand decorated with a small beaded ridge technique referred to as milgrain.  It softens the overall look of this early 20th century necklet which is suspended from a light platinum chain.  The jewels from this time are often compared to petit point embroidery due to their delicate and lacy appearance.  Perfect for a bride on her wedding day or simply an evening on the town, make this beauty yours for just $3850.  Available now in Joe’s Special Box.
