Joe’s Special Box – Volume 81

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and A Collector’s Things

While every girl in America is going crazy for pumpkin spice everything – I am relishing the very last day of September.  It’s the final day for a sapphire birthstone…  but isn’t EVERY day a good day for this luscious blue gem?  I say yes!  These two beauties that I pulled from Joe’s Special Box are my current favorites.  

I am dying over the continuous line that creates this two stone infinity ring!  Classic Edwardian elegance brings a platinum top to this 18 karat yellow gold ring, perfectly showcasing one Old Mine Cut diamond and one rich blue sapphire.  Thirty-five rose cut diamonds encircle the two stones in perfect symmetry.  It’s endless beauty for just $2,450.00. 

This Lady Diana style ring is the gem of my dreams.  Two full carats of glittering Old Mine Cut diamonds surround a vibrant midnight blue sapphire.  The traditional vibe of this gem is giving me all the feels.  Wear it on your left hand as an avant-garde engagement ring or rock it on the right hand for every day bling.  Priced right at $4,750.00, the choice is yours.

Come to Joden where the choices are only limited by your imagination.

The Orange and The Green

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and a Dazzling Disordered Ring

“Oh, it’s the biggest mix-up that you have ever seen.  My father he was orange and my mother she was green.”  These are the opening lines of an old Irish folk song aptly titled “The Orange and The Green.”  This humorous ballad recounts the story of a man caught between a rock and hard place…  his father was a protestant (orange) and his mother was Catholic (green)!  Quite the conundrum…

This bold ring is a different version of the orange and the green.  The rich yellow tone of 18 karat gold is the perfect complement to the strong color combination of this unusual piece.  A vivid 7.00 carat oval opal creates an eye-catching center.  This is not your typical opal…  but rather a Mexican Fire Opal, exhibiting a bright tangerine color that really pops!  Surrounding the center are a series of nine well-matched glowing green stones.  These beauties are not emeralds or peridot,  they are actually tsavorite, a rare form of garnet.  And while these are not the colors that come to mind when talking about opal and garnet – it is certainly a stimulating variation!  This ring is not for the faint of heart, no wallflowers here!  This is a statement piece for the audacious, the trendsetters!

The question that I propose to you is not “Orange or Green?” but rather “Beautiful Swan or Ugly Duckling?”.  Here at Joden, our cases are filled with both classic and uncommon, traditional with a bit of kooky.  Which side are you on?  Is this ring hot or not?  Priced at $5,750.00 – this is no dime store decision.  It’s an extravagant inquiry.

Joe’s Special Box – Volume 80

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and A Collector’s Things

This is the 80th edition of Joe’s Special Box!  I wanted to choose something truly worthy of being the 80th piece…  and I think this bangle more than qualifies.  Made around the turn of the 20th century, it’s a real beauty.  Crafted from a bright 14 karat yellow gold, five individual squares span the top portion of this hinged bracelet.  The center square is the largest with the remainder graduating down in size.

Each square has a tiny Old Mine Cut Diamond in the middle.  The center diamond is surrounded by a halo of cabochon Persian turquoise.  The next two squares have halos created from dainty natural pearls, while the final two segments also feature turquoise… just like the center.  The outer edges of each section have been hand engraved with a lovely pattern of scrolled lines showing how a little touch can add so much!  This bangle, price at $2,650.00 brings a hint of bling to a special occasion, but is still simple enough to be worn every day.  I can’t wait to see what the next 80 pieces will be!
