Joe’s Special Box Luxury Edition – Volume 12B

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling and A Collector’s Things

Sometimes it seems like we settle into a rut.  Get up, go to work, come home, make dinner, go to bed.  Lather, rinse, repeat.  It’s also true in our work…  it’s no secret that I gravitate toward pieces that move me.  I choose jewelry that sparks something inside of me, whether it be good or bad.  In an effort to keep the blog content interesting, lately I’ve been asking Joe to personally select the pieces.  He often has a different viewpoint than I do – bringing a fresh perspective shakes things up. 

Earlier today, we were having an animated chat about antique jewelry.  Joe mentioned that one his oldest friends (who is a major player in the jewelry industry) felt that the best antique jewelry is Art Deco – definitely an opinion shared by many.  My personal thoughts are sometimes less enthusiastic – I’m wondering what YOU think about Joe’s pick.

Measuring 7.25 inches in length and over half an inch in width, this bracelet is comprised of 29.2 dwt of polished platinum.  There are thirty-two individual links.  Set within those segments are 234 round diamonds.  These earth-mined natural beauties cover every spec of the bracelet with 8.88 carats of scintillating sparkle.  Each stone is held in place with four prongs and highlighted with precise milgrain beaded edges.  

Set at even intervals are three marquise-brilliant diamonds.  This curved navette shape juxtaposes exquisitely with the predominantly rectangular theme of the bracelet.  Together, these three diamonds offer an additional 1.42 carats of sparkle.  Wrapping around the perimeter of each marquise is a precise border of expertly cut green glass.  Mimicking the look of emerald – these imitation stones are authentic and original to the piece.  

Undeniably a stellar example of real Art Deco jewelry, this bracelet is breathtakingly beautiful.  With 10.30 carats of total diamond weight, it packs quite a punch.  Priced at $26,500.00 (for those wondering…  that’s just over $111 per diamond) – there’s no question why it’s Joe’s pick.  Inquiring minds want to know…  what do you think of our latest bit of luxury?  Cast your vote on our Instagram story.
