Joe’s Special Box – Volume 41

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and A Collector’s Things

After nearly 50 years in business, Joe still handpicks each piece that makes its way into the dazzling array of gems and baubles filling the showcases at Joden.  From the finest antiques to brand new trends, Joe has an undeniable eye for style.  Just the other day, a package arrived with a few new bits for holiday shoppers… a charming stack of colorful eternity bands, a wide openwork diamond ring, and this…

Oh.  My.  Gee.  This striking beauty was zipped into a tiny clear plastic bag nestled among a dozen other pieces strewn across the white sorting pad on Joe’s desk.  Casually resting between random doodles and scribbled notes, there it was… a blue topaz and diamond dreamboat.  

An elongated emerald cut Swiss Blue Topaz sits parallel with the length of your finger in this 14 karat white gold stunner.  This bright stone is accented by a delicate halo of round brilliant diamonds and a pair of straight baguette cut diamonds that flank the center stone.  More round diamonds wink from each shoulder.  It positively screams classic elegance.  It’s hard to believe that this is a modern manufactured piece.  It’s even harder to believe that it sells for just $695!  

This beauty won’t last long…  in fact, I bet it doesn’t last the week.  As soon as I take it off my hand and put it in the showcase, that is!

Holiday Glow

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and Diamond Earrings

Just look at these beauties…  14 karat rose gold diamond earrings.  Every girl needs a great pair of diamond studs.  They’re classic, like the little black dress of jewelry.  The perfect addition to every outfit – from denim to cashmere – you can’t go wrong, and these are no exception.  

Made from a glorious rosy gold, these are not your average diamond studs.  These gems are made in a modern halo-style.  Each one is set with a round brilliant diamond center; the two stones have a combined weight of .79 carats.  Surrounding these bright diamonds are an additional twenty-eight diamonds that weigh .28 carats.  That brings the total of all diamonds to 1.07 carats – over a half carat in each ear!  The low profile style makes a statement and yet is still perfect for daily wear.

When rose gold began to emerge as a trend a couple of years ago, I really thought it would be short-lived.  White gold and platinum had reigned supreme for more than two decades.  How could this pink-hued metal rival that?  Fast forward to 2018, and it’s clear that I couldn’t have been more wrong.  Rose gold is perhaps the most requested metal at the engagement case, with yellow gold taking a close second.  Don’t get me wrong, ladies still love white gold and platinum, it’s just that now there are more options – like these earrings!  The rose gold gives them a little extra something, a bit of a glow.  Who doesn’t love a little holiday glow…  I know I do.  Priced at $2450.00, these have arrived at Joden just in time for Santa.

Joe’s Special Box – Volume 40

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and A Collector’s Things

I’m completely enchanted by this delicate beauty… a perfect vintage ring that looks like a tiny bow.  I first introduced you to it several months ago in a post about the “B” word…  budget!  The holidays are definitely a time when our family budget is on my mind.  I’m sure it weighs on many of you, as well.  I love that this piece is totally budget friendly, priced at just $1400.

Made from 18 karat white gold with a .25 carat diamond center, who wouldn’t want to tie the knot with this darling engagement ring?

It’s all about the details.  Milgrain beads create a subtle border for the loops on each side of the bright round diamond center.  Six single cut diamonds wink from each shoulder, adding extra sparkle.  The shank is made with a knife-edge peak in the center, another small detail that makes all the difference.  If you or someone you know is planning a Christmas proposal, Joden Jewelers is the place to be.  This one-of-a-kind ring is waiting for you. 

This holiday season, let our experts help you find the perfect gift for every name on your list.
