Joe’s Special Box – Volume 78

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and A Collector’s Things

A beautiful cross pendant…  very few things have as much meaning as this simple yet significant piece of jewelry.  For thousands of years, this symbol of faith has been crafted from a myriad of materials…  stone, wood, and precious metal.  From the most primitive to the highly ornate, nothing could be more iconic.

These two beauties are no exception…  a pair of vintage pieces featuring superb craftsmanship and classic elegance.  

Silver on 15 karat yellow gold – it’s a true antique treasure!  The patina on this Georgian cross is glorious.  I love how it pools heavily in each crevice then nearly fades away on the rounded arches.  Six natural pearls and eighteen rose cut diamonds bejewel the front side of this pendant.  It slides on a platinum pearl chain and is available now for $3,850.00.

This gem is an Edwardian showstopper made from 15 karat yellow gold topped with a layer of platinum.  The body of the cross is accented with a series of 15 pearls and one round diamond center.  The lace-like appearance is achieved utilizing milgrain edging, rose cut diamond trim and a hand pierced pattern.  Worn on an 18 karat white gold chain with black enameled segments, this cross is available for $2,750.00. 

Actions speak louder than words.  Show your faith with an exceptional cross from Joden.

Victorian Vows

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and an Antique Diamond Ring

In the mid to late 1800’s, girls as young as twelve were permitted to marry, although most waited until they were at least 20.  That’s a bit younger than today.  Nowadays, the most common age for ladies to tie the knot is about 27.  In either case, I am certain that countless hours were spent dreaming of the perfect engagement ring.  

No matter the era, Victorian or modern – this stunner is sure to be the cause of many oohs and aahs.  Made from 14 karat gold polished to a soft rosy glow, the band is exquisitely simple.  Twelve individual prongs create a delicately scalloped buttercup setting that cradles the Old European Cut diamond center to perfection.  Weighing in at .80 carat, the diamond sparkles and shines from every angle.  

A gently sloped shoulder splits artfully into two halves, like a pair of leaves.  At the base of this botanical-inspired design is a tiny pair of spirals that flow seamlessly into the shank.  I am in love with the sheer thinness of the band…  it’s SO comfortable!  I love a good solitaire setting – it’s tough to beat the classic elegance of it.  It’s available now for just $2,890.00.

Queen Victoria’s love of diamonds began a trend that is now a tradition.  Start your own traditions with an engagement ring from Joden where their motto holds true:

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