Joe’s Special Box Luxury Edition – Volume 12A

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling and A Collector’s Things

Luxury…  it’s defined as the state of great comfort and extravagant living.  However – “extravagant living” is different for each of us.  There are moments when the greatest luxury I can fathom is spending the entire day nestled into the corner of the sofa reading…  ignore the phone, let the laundry pile up, and declare “cereal for dinner!”  That would be a truly decadent day.  

As you can imagine, working in a jewelry store elevates luxury to an entirely different level.  We have customers from every walk of life; we are blessed with an inventory that has real range.  It allows us to offer something for everyone.  Whether your budget is $50 or $50,000 – we have the perfect gift for you.

Dana and I take great pride in the pieces that we share with you.  We strive to showcase the range of the inventory…  antique, estate and modern.  Each item in this blog, every single thing on our website, Facebook, and Instagram is hand-picked.    This bangle is no exception – it was also specially selected….  but not by me, by Joe.  

Made in the 1950’s, this 14-karat gold beauty is deceptively simple.  Five narrow golden wires create the frame of the bracelet.  Interspersed within those wires are six tiny leaves with a diamond in the middle of each one.  Twenty-eight additional round diamonds create a halo around the center stone – a stunning cornflower blue cushion-shaped sapphire weighing 6.62 carats.  

Accompanied by a report from the Gemological Institute of America, this bright blue beauty is from Sri Lanka (formerly known as Ceylon).  For more than two thousand years, Sri Lanka has been bringing us the finest sapphires in the world.  Known for phenomenal color, these gemstones are breathtakingly beautiful.  The GIA report offers yet another important bit of information – our gemstone is unheated.  Only .5-1% of the sapphires mined are of gem quality without treatment.  Natural untreated, unheated sapphires are far more rare and much more valuable than treated sapphires.  

The bangle is hinged, allowing it to open fully.  Both the hinge and the clasp offer deeply engraved patterns.  This minute detail adds to the overall charm of this Mid Century bangle.  Combined, the thirty-four diamonds have a total weight of 1.50 carats of scintillating sparkle.  The classically clean lines pair perfectly with the diamonds to create the ideal setting for this stellar sapphire.  Beautiful, rare, and valuable – these attributes are the very reasons why this bracelet is exactly the kind of luxury you need in your life.  Make it yours for just $18,900.00. 

You can go to a museum and look or come to us and touch.  Ownership possibilities available.
