Joe’s Special Box – Volume 73

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and A Collector’s Things

$4400…  that’s just $100 a year for every year that I’ve been alive.  I think I’m worth it, right?  This ring from Joe’s Special Box has me feeling some kinda way, if you know what I mean.  It’s so unique.  Unusual.  Different.  And isn’t that what jewelry is all about?  I don’t know about you, but I don’t want what everyone else has.  Why settle for ordinary when you could have extraordinary?

It reminds me of a flower…  a diamond daisy.  Sixteen platinum petals fan out from the center, each one is carefully set with three Old Mine Cut diamonds.  These forty-eight stones have a combined total weight of approximately 1.00 carat.  Nestled into the heart of the ring is one round brilliant diamond that weighs about .80 carat.  This modern beauty is the perfect addition to the ring…  but I don’t think it’s the original center stone.  Small clues, like the cut of the stone and the way it’s been fitted to the ring lead me to believe that it was added later.  Perhaps it was a remount, a re-fashion, or a conversion piece.  In any case, someone took a vintage ring and made it their own.  And now it’s ours.  Perhaps soon it will belong to one of you.  ♥
