Pick of the Week – Volume Five

Joden Girl

Baubles and Bling with Unbelievable Pricing

At Joden, we have a bit of everything…  antique, estate, and modern.  You may be wondering what the difference is between each of these categories.  For a piece of jewelry to be considered “antique”, it has to be over one hundred years old.  Modern jewelry is pristine and new – either hand-crafted in our expert shop or purchased direct from  the manufacturer.  Estate jewelry is everything in between…  another way to describe it would be “pre-owned”.  It can be a bit confusing – but we’re here to answer all your questions.  

Much of our inventory at Joden is estate – filled with everything from Art Deco, Retro and Mid-Century Modern to pre-owned beauties priced to sell.  That’s what we have today…  a unique find at a price you can’t resist.  Allow me to introduce you to the “Pick of the Week”!

Everything about this bridal set is non-traditional and yet classic at the same time.  Both the engagement ring and contoured wedding band are crafted from a silvery white metal that doesn’t tarnish and never needs to be rhodium plated.  You are probably thinking platinum, however these beauties are made from palladium!  

Next, let’s talk about those gemstones!  The center is an octagonal modified brilliant blue sapphire.  This subtle stunner packs quite a punch.  Certified by the Gemological Institute of America, the sapphire is unheated – a rare quality that greatly increases the value of this cerulean stone.  In the United States, diamond is widely accepted as THE engagement stone of choice, however, in the United Kingdom…  sapphire is the coveted favorite.  This particular stone weighs 1.44 carats and brings an element of unexpected allure to this bridal set. 

Another unique anomaly about this ring are those side stones.  Due to their vibrant colorless nature, you’re probably guessing that they’re diamonds.  However, you would be mistaken.  This matched pair of sparklers are actually white sapphires!  I adore each and every uncommon element of these rings.  Originally priced at $6,300 – our Pick of the Week is now available for only $3,750.00!!!  If you’re in the market for an exclusive engagement ring for your one-and-only…  this is it!

The Comet and the Moon

 Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling and Celestial Things

“Tell me,” said the comet as it whooshed past the moon’s pale face

“Who do you look so sulky as you make your way through space?”

 “You will sulk as well,” the moon said If you were doomed like me,

To always plod the same path in chains of gravity.

 You are free to flair and sizzle, you roam like rockets do,

 While I am stuck here in the orbit of the Earth….. I envy you.

Once things were better – spacemen came up to float and walk and scratch my back.

 Now life’s too dull “So comet, stay and talk.” The comet didn’t answer.

 Already it had gone to wag its tail round Venus while the moon trudged on.

 – Richard Edwards

This brooch by Kieselstein-Cord is a full color representation of the poem by Richard Edwards.  Made entirely of 18 karat yellow gold, the glowing diamond comet whooshes past the moon’s face.  And what a face it is, contemplative and serene.  Or perhaps like the one described by Edwards, is this celestial being sulking?  Is the moon envious of the free-spirited comet?

Created in 1985, the artist applied a bisque finish to the surface of the gold; it softens the overall feel of the piece.  The only shine is provided by the .50 carat of round brilliants pavé set into the surface of the comet.  Kieselstein-Cord is a force to be reckoned with in the world of design and fashion.  His award-winning pieces have earned him the attention of a long line of A-listers.  This otherworldly estate gem is available now on our site for just $1,750.00.

Pick of the Week – Volume Four

Joden Girl

Baubles and Bling with Unbelievable Pricing

Our newest edition of the blog, the “Pick of the Week” is entering it’s fourth week…  while we’re just beginning to gain momentum, we’d love your feedback.  Have you been tempted to push the “buy” button?  If you didn’t make that purchase, what stopped you?  Perhaps we just haven’t had the perfect fit.

Speaking of the perfect fit…  sometimes a piece of jewelry is like Cinderella and the glass slipper.  This week, we are offering a trio of bands from the ultimate in designer jewelry – Cartier.  Each one is brand new and accompanied by the signature red box.  But just like that glass slipper – it’s all about the fit.  

First, we have an identical pair of 18 karat white gold “Love” rings with diamond accents.  Each of these highly coveted bands is set with three round brilliant diamonds that have a combined weight of .22 carat.  Alternating between each diamond is the iconic carved screw design – the signature of the “Love” collection.  Settling on the mandrel at size 5.5, these beauties were priced at $3,450.00 each.  For the next week, you can nab one of these for the steal of a deal price of just $2,250.00!

And then we have this gem…  the Cartier Maillon Panthere ring.  This unique three-row design is a bit more industrial but every bit as desirable.  Comprised of eighteen interlocking bars of 18 karat white gold, this ring is the ideal choice for your wedding band.  Also sized at a 5.5 and previously priced at $3,450.00 – this killer band is available for only $2,250.00!  

If you’ve been watching and waiting for the right “Pick of the Week” for you, don’t wait another minute!  If you thought Cartier was always just out of your reach, this is the week for you.  Go to our site and grab of these enchantresses for yourself.
