“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.

Joe’s Special Box – Volume 33

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and A Collector’s Things

I’m not into heart shapes.  Well, maybe if it’s a cookie, but not in jewelry.  Once in a long while one of these little love tokens will catch my eye – like this diminutive beauty.  Measuring only one inch from the top of the bail to the point at the bottom, this symbol of affection is completely covered in Old Mine Cut diamonds; twenty-nine of them to be exact, with a combined weight of 1.50 carats.  

    

I adore everything about this piece…  especially that it’s not just a pendant, it’s also a pin.  Although brooches aren’t as popular as they once were, one of this size is much easier to wear…  pin it to your collar, your lapel, or even your cuff for a trendy modern feel.  Style it short like a choker or on your favorite strand of pearls for a classic look, this gem is so versatile.  

Made during the late 1800’s, this Victorian pendant is in pristine condition.  A lovely rosy patina has developed on the 18 karat yellow gold framework, adding another element of vintage appeal.  It’s as beautiful today as it was when it was made, nearly 150 years ago.  It’s no surprise that I found it in Joe’s Special Box.  Priced at $4,700.00, this pendant melts my heart.
