Joe’s Special Box – Volume 43

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and A Collector’s Things

With the Christmas holiday all wrapped up, at Joden, we have already turned our attention to 2019.  As I was searching through Joe’s Special Box to find the perfect piece for this week, I kept coming back to this pair of golden beauties.  With Valentine’s Day only weeks away – these sweet little heart rings are sure to please.  

The first ring is made from a rich 22 karat gold and features a duo of flower blossoms on a delicately textured background.  Leaves and vines trail down each shoulder adding to the natural appeal of the piece.  Yellow gold has made a strong comeback in the last year, and this ring would be a great statement piece for anyone’s jewelry wardrobe – it’s modestly priced at $640.

The second ring (shown on the right above) is made from pure 24 karat gold.  The warm buttery gold piece features the words “beautiful light” in Japanese.  Etched into each shoulder is an eight-petaled flower, a subtle yet much needed detail…  priced at $750. 

The allure of high karat gold was undeniable in 2018 – and 2019 promises to be even stronger.  Our selection of karat gold jewelry is vast and varied.  Get a head start on your Valentine’s Day shopping with a sweetheart of a ring available exclusively at Joden Jewelers.

Joe’s Special Box – Volume 13

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and A Collector’s Things

This week, I uncovered a pair of unique modern rings, both signed “Luna Felix” – a world renowned jeweler made famous for her abstract designs and unusual gemstone choices.

Handcrafted from a brassy 22 karat yellow gold, this triple-banded open-shank ring features one rough diamond as the center stone.  The stone is in it’s original state, just as it was when it came out of the ground.  The band of gold housing this natural beauty is decorated with an Old World technique called granulation – tiny beads of gold cover the surface of the bezel.  This Etruscan revival styled knock-out can be yours for just $1500.

If one is good, two is better…  the perfect complement for the split shank Luna Felix stunner is this exceptional enchantress.  Evoking images of ancient Egyptian pyramids, the monolithic center is crowned by a singular square sapphire.  A snake-like band of woven gold creates a flexible silken shank… priced well at $800.

While most of the pieces in Joe’s Special Box are vintage treasures, I was not surprised to find these two modern gems.  Their exquisite craftsmanship and unmatched quality make them truly special indeed.
