Joe’s Special Box – Volume 36

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and A Collector’s Things

I always find the best things when I have a chance to snoop around in Joe’s office!  Ssshhh….  don’t tell!  The response to the opal band from a couple weeks ago was awesome (I am patiently waiting for the restoration process to be complete).  So, I knew when I stumbled across these little darlings that I had to share them with you.  

Made at the end of the 19th century, these little enchantresses feature 68 cabochon opals in both round and pear shapes.  The play of color in these tiny gems is dazzling.  Flashes of red, green, and blue blaze within each stone creating an effect like fireworks on the 4th of July.  The seat for each opal has been hand-cut, leaving a burst of engraving around each one.  The bottom is hinged, giving the earring movement – this allows light to bounce off the opals further enhancing the sparkle.  These are the details that take a piece from ordinary to extraordinary.  Make them yours today for just $1180.00.
