Pick of the Week – Volume 16

Joden Girl

Baubles and Bling with Unbelievable Pricing

The Pick of the Week is my favorite feature blog.  I adore the idea of making some of our most cherished items more affordable!  Who wouldn’t love that?  Without question, the diamond engagement rings have been the most popular pieces.  

This week, we’re focusing on a different price point…  an authentic, mint- condition Victorian ring.  It’s a tiny treasure!  Made from 9 karat yellow gold, with 18 karat gold gilding, this ring is perfection.  I love the architectural outline… with gentle curves and bold edges.  Distinctly divided into segments, this antique three stone ring is beautiful from every angle.

One rose cut diamond is set within an eight-pointed star in the center.  It’s flanked by a pair of old cut rubies that are also star-set.  This style was quite popular during the Victorian era, adding a bit of flair to each little gem.  A pair of triangles are carefully etched into each side of the shank.

Three distinct hallmarks are stamped inside the shank of this English ring.  It’s a wonderful example of fine antique jewelry.  Previously priced at $850.00, this piece is available now for just $675.00!

Baubles, Bling and Dazzling Things

Originally dubbed as a “table cut,” this rectangular beauty is one of the oldest diamond shapes with roots dating back to the 1500’s.  Resembling a hall of mirrors, it gained a new name in the 1920’s.  Featuring 57 facets, the emerald cut diamond (as it is now known) is recognized as perhaps the most elegant and sophisticated of all the silhouettes.  

While it can be challenging to improve upon near perfection, there have been rare instances throughout history.  In 1981, Christopher Slowinski introduced the world to Christopher Designs.  He is a master stone cutter and a visionary, he single-handedly revolutionized the emerald cut diamond.  Elaborating upon the existing profile, Slowinski added triangular shaped facets to the steps in the pavilion (lower half) of the stone taking it from fifty-seven to a whopping seventy-seven facets!  This expert design capitalizes on the scintillation and light dispersion, producing a continuous exchange of light – bouncing back and forth with mesmerizing results.  Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the Original Crisscut Emerald Diamond.

We recently added this dazzler to our estate collection.  Made entirely from platinum, this ring is a true showstopper.  The center stone is a 1.51 carat Crisscut diamond.  This beauty is perfectly nestled between a series of twenty-four Crisscut tapered baguette diamonds that graduate in size with a combined weight of 1.49 carats.  Finally, the three-row look is completed with seventy-four round brilliant stones.  These diamonds outline both sides as well as the center and add an additional .70 carat of bling.  All told, the total gem weight of this modern marvel is 3.70 carats!  Wow!

An elegant engagement ring or a sophisticated anniversary band?  This ring is ideal for every occassion.  And it’s a real steal…  the primary advantage of estate jewelry is undoubtedly the price!  Make this authentic Crisscut Diamond ring yours for just $16,750.00.

Pick of the Week – Volume Fifteen

Baubles and Bling with Unbelievable Pricing

This sweet little number will steal your heart!  Bridging two periods, the Art Deco era and the cusp of Retro, this ring is absolute perfection from top to bottom.  

Handmade entirely from platinum, this vintage beauty is in excellent condition.  A .22 carat transitional cut diamond is nestled within a square setting.  Small but mighty, the diamond hits the charts at an H color, VS1-2 in clarity.  With grading like that, this gem glitters from every angle.  

Flanking the center stone are six single-cut diamonds.  These sparklers are hand-fitted in milgrain-edged settings that form an elegant triangle on each side.  The shank mimics a split design at the top of the shoulder and then comes together in a solid piece to form the band.  

The low-profile style makes this ring extremely wearable.  I can see so many purposes for this tiny treasure…  an engagement ring or a promise ring.  It stacks beautifully but is also great on its own.  Gift it for graduation, Christmas, or for no reason at all.  

Previously priced at $1500, this charmer is the Pick of the Week!  You might want to sit down for this – it’s now available for just $965.00!  Hop on over to our site and make it yours today.
