The “B” Word

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling and Financial Things

Let’s face it…  the “B” word – it’s the word that makes all girls cringe – BUDGET!  While it may be awkward to talk about, the budget is one of the most crucial pieces of information in the quest to find the ideal engagement ring.  Some girls are economical, frugal even…  others are definitely budget busters!  We have rings for both, and everyone in between. 

Here are three of my current favorites –

Now let’s take a closer look at each one…

  

Made entirely of platinum, this sweet little beauty dates back to the end of the Art Deco period – 1940.  A .22 carat transitional cut round brilliant diamond is nestled in a classic square-cornered setting.  Additional vintage details include milgrain beaded edges, angular lines, and single-cut diamond trim.  Priced at just $1500, this one won’t break the bank!

  

For me, this one is all about that killer Old Mine Cut diamond in the center…  weighing in at 1.23 carats, it is simply stunning.  This diamond strikes the perfect balance of the four C’s  – that cushion cut, that beautiful white color, no visible imperfections, and it weighs just over one carat.  What more could a girl want? 

 

This ring is like a darling little bow tied on top of your finger.  Handmade from 18 karat white gold, the loops of the bow curl around the delicate diamond trim.  The center is reminiscent of the first ring, with a .25 carat diamond set in a square-cornered design.  Also budget friendly (priced at $1400.00), it won’t last long.

One, two, even three months salary…  these can seem like very daunting numbers.  And yet, many experts recommend using these guidelines to determine your engagement ring budget.  Consider them exactly that – a guideline, a suggestion.  Whether your budget is $100 or $100,000 – your ring is at Joden Jewelers.  Come visit me…  you’ll see for yourself that the only thing greater than our selection is our customer service.

When Too Much is Just Right

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and Fancy Things

Recently, I stumbled upon a quote that really resounded with me…  it’s circulated on Facebook numerous times and I’m sure you’ve seen it, heard it, and read it for yourself, but the sentiment bears repeating.  Here’s a link for the entire text, the crux of it is this… 

“You are not everyone’s cup of tea.  And that’s okay.”

Jewelry is very much the same…  it comes in all shapes and sizes.  Styles range from classic and traditional to wildly over the top.  Here at Joden, I often hear “It’s just too much!” – and they aren’t referring to the price!  My job is all about personalities and finding the perfect match between the client and the piece. 

If you’re like me, and people often refer to you as “too much”…  then this ring is for you.

The wide pave ribbon of diamonds is stunning.  Crafted from 18 karat white gold and set edge to edge with nearly five carats of yellow and white diamonds, it makes a bold statement.  This ring will not sit quietly on your finger – it screams “Look at me!” 

  

Here, we’re showing it with an intricate duo of colored diamond bands.   Multicolor gold has been set with pink, yellow, and white diamonds to perfection.  Their non-traditional style is entirely unique…  just like the women who will wear them. 

If “too much” is just right for you, come to Joden where nothing is ordinary and everything is extraordinary.

Love Tokens

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and Connecting Things

If you’re searching for the ultimate wedding band, look no further.  We have a limited selection of the very finest in band rings – authentic Cartier pieces, all accompanied by the signature red leather embossed box. 

 

This classic 18 karat white gold “Maillon Panthere” band would look fantastic on anyone’s finger.  The band is aptly named… a maillon is actually a linking devise similar to a carabiner, most often used in rigging and climbing sports.  It makes a secure and vital connection – much like a wedding band.

These three bands are from the Cartier “Love” collection.  Each one is engraved with the iconic love symbol (a circle with a line through the center).  The first piece ever crafted in this collection – the “Love” bracelet – was originally designed as two separate halves that joined together to create one.  A special screw locks the halves together; this strong connection can only be undone by using the screwdriver that comes with the bracelet.  The symbol looks just like the top of this unique locking mechanism and has become the trademark of the entire line.  Each band embodies the strength of the commitment between the giver and the receiver.

Cartier has dubbed them “rings of eternal emotions”.  They truly are the ultimate wedding bands.
