Joe’s Special Box – Volume 96

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and A Collector’s Things

How can a 3.00 carat pear-shaped diamond necklace be both casual and formal at the same time?  How can the same necklace be perfectly mated with a great pair of jeans and T-shirt or also be the ideal accessory for a formal gown?  Allow me to introduce you to exactly that…  a high-end pendant so well designed that it can slip seamlessly from outfit to outfit, day to night without batting an eye.

Seventeen inches of 18 karat yellow gold beauty – first a bar-style link comprised of a section of ribbed black chalcedony followed by a small bezel set round diamond and then another bar-style link of precisely the same design minus the chalcedony.  There are a total of eight black bars, two round diamond bezels, and eight plain gold bars with a toggle clasp. 

The crowning glory of this piece is that pear-shaped diamond…  what a gem!  Weighing 3.00 carats, it is positively dazzling.  Well cut, bright white (H-I color) and eye-clean (SI1-2) – it amps up the volume of this already amazing piece.  Flip the pendant over and you’ll discover the “Jaques” signature in two spots, the hallmark for 18 karat gold as well as a number.  

This showstopper is accompanied by an Appraisal Report from the International Gemological Institute of America valuing it at a whopping $57,115.00!  At Joden, we do our best to buy well and often.  So, today, I ask you… “What is the Joden price?”  Comment on Facebook or Instagram!  I can’t wait to see your answers!

“Style Is To Be Simple”

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and Heartfelt Things

A former fashion model, Elsa Peretti has had her finger on the pulse of style for more than fifty years.  She began creating jewelry in the seventies, and became an independent designer for Tiffany and Co. in 1971.  Already an award-winning stylist, Peretti brought a fresh and modern perspective – attracting a younger audience to the iconic brand.  

This open heart pendant is the epitome of the aesthetic genius that is Elsa Peretti.  The sensual lines of this classic shape make wearing it both enjoyable and effortless at the same time.  The pendant has been crafted in multiple sizes and metals.  This particular one is the 27 mm size, sculpted from 18 karat yellow gold.  We have paired it with a 14 karat yellow gold snake chain.  This sophisticated symbol of love slides like silk across the length of the chain – gliding with the movement of the body.  

Peretti has been quoted as saying “I am not an artist, I am a craftswoman.”  Like all Tiffany pieces, the open heart pendant is designed to last, not to be discarded with the next trend.  It’s a quintessential wardrobe necessity, and it’s available now at Joden for just $780.00.  Make it yours today.

Joe’s Special Box – Volume 47

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and A Collector’s Things

The pieces in Joe’s Special Box never cease to amaze me.  It’s an eclectic collection of vintage Victorian, Art Deco stunners, Giuliano treasures with a little bit of modern thrown in.  I’m not a pearl girl, but this ring makes my heart go pitter-pat.  It’s the pure simplicity of it.  Designed by Paloma Picasso for Tiffany and Co. in 1984, this mabé pearl ring is a refined beauty.

Daughter of famous painter Pablo Picasso, Paloma is an award-winning artist in her own rite.  She has been creating audacious styles for Tiffany since 1980.  Paloma says she is inspired by her travels.  She is best known for her use of whimsical shapes and bold patterns.  

Fashioned early in her career from a buttery 18 karat yellow gold and featuring a bright white mabé pearl center, this Tiffany piece doesn’t disappoint.  No additional ornamentation is needed – the classic style speaks for itself. Priced right at just $900, this ring is available now in our showroom.
