The Power of Three

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and  Three Stone Rings

Call it lucky.  Maybe even magical.  There’s no denying that the number three is symbolic.  Many notions have been associated with the number…  everything from religious connotations to ancient superstition.  The ideas have even permeated the jewelry world.  Three stone rings have often been described as “Past, Present, and Future” pieces.  So, whether it’s the symbolism that draws you in or simply the intrinsic beauty, these rings are just too good to miss!

This stunning trio offers all the best elements of the early 1900’s – handcrafted design, expertly executed filigree work, and a perfectly placed pop of color.  Factor in the “three-stone” element, then ask yourself this…  “What’s not to love?”

Get an eyeful of this little enchantress!  Milgrain details bring delicate filigree edges to life with tiny hand-faceted beads that sparkle like diamonds.  To fashion that “three stone” style, the center diamond is flanked by a pair of French cut synthetic blue sapphires (Many people don’t know that synthetic stones were common during the Art Deco period!).  The burst of blue makes the ring even more enticing.  Available now for just $1100.00.

Soft white gold blends with the warmth of yellow gold to create this classic beauty.  The ring sparkles with a pair of European Cut diamonds and a synthetic ruby center.  Four leaf-life accents perform supporting roles, each one with a faceted diamond center.  Go to our site and check it out for yourself.

If you love vintage jewelry, but color isn’t your thing, then this third ring is the charm!  From the heart of the Art Deco period, you’ll love the graceful lines of this elegant ring.  Three Old European Cut diamonds set across the top give this piece that time-honored “three stone” appeal.  This ring is a perfect fit for just $900.00. 

On the count of three, come to Joden and make one of these rings yours!  And don’t forget to subscribe to Joden Girl to have it delivered straight to your inbox.  Just click on the newsletter link and sign-up now.

Go Green

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and Emerald Rings

Wednesday was my birthday – the 31st of May…  making emerald my birthstone.  It’s rare that I find a piece of emerald jewelry that appeals to me, and when I do – the price usually exceeds my comfort zone.

To be considered fine quality, these gems must exemplify two attributes – an intense green hue that can only be described as “emerald green” and a high degree of transparency.  Stones like this are rare.  And usually quite expensive.  So, when I saw this little beauty – I was pleasantly surprised.  I love the whimsical flower design (of course!) – AND it’s affordable. 

White gold, natural pear-shaped emeralds, and tiny diamond accents combine perfectly to create this five-petal blossom.  For me, it’s a right hand ring… I love the way it looks on a middle finger!  You will, too.  Go to our site and check it out.

If you’re looking for a classic style, these two pieces are ideal.  Both rings feature delicate diamond halos encircling round emeralds – traditional elegance with a bright pop of color.  Choose one for your right hand, or your left…  you can’t go wrong! 

 

Now that you’re positively green with envy – go to our site and turn ours into yours!  Get Joden Girl delivered right to your inbox by clicking on the newsletter link and subscribing today.

“Watch” This

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and Timepiece Things

In the antique jewelry business, we often have pieces that have outlived their relevance.  Their time has already come and gone…  watches are a perfect example of this.  The advancement of watches has gone through several phases – from a wind-up movement to a quartz movement to a smart watch.  Even more often, watches have been set aside for the ease and convenience of a cellular phone. 

Jewelry created during the Edwardian and Art Deco periods (1900 – 1930’s), was painstakingly crafted from white gold and platinum.  Artisans created elaborate patterns with lacey filigree set with dozens of tiny diamonds.  Wristwatches were no exception.  You can understand why it seems like a sin to send these intricate beauties to the refinery to be melted into a blog of nothingness.  Unfortunately, that is exactly what has happened to many antique watches.

As you know, at Joden, we specialize in antique restoration.  More recently, we have been doing more recreating than restoring. 

Each of these lovely bracelets shown above used to be a watch.  We carefully removed the stem, crown, and movement and replaced it with a specially cut piece of onyx.  I love how we have retained the original cord-style bands.  It give each one an authentic feel and allows the bracelet to be custom fit to any wrist.  Check them out on our website – pricing starts at $1700.00.

I inherited a gold watch from my Great Aunt that has been rattling around in my jewelry box for at least five years.  These conversions have inspired me to get it out and have my own watch/bracelet made!  I’ll be sure to share a photo as soon as it’s done.  In the meantime, don’t forget to subscribe to our newsletter and have “Joden Girl” delivered straight to your inbox!
