Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and Choice Things

Each week, I talk to Joe about the pieces I’ve selected for Joden Girl.  My choices are always about reactions – maybe you’ll love it, maybe you won’t.  Usually Joe and I agree – but sometimes we don’t.  This week is one of those weeks.  As I handed my pick across the desk to Joe, the words were already coming out of my mouth…  “I know you’re going to hate these…”

I placed these earrings in his hand and finished my thought…  “I don’t know why, but something about them really appeals to me!”  Of course, I was right.  Joe doesn’t hate them, but he definitely doesn’t think they’re worth blogging about!  

Made from 9 karat yellow gold, these simple wire-wrapped style dangles are so fun!  I love the artistic charm of them.  A thin band of gold envelopes the center of a pair of uncut white topaz.  The stones aren’t perfectly matched (which only adds to their allure) but light bounces off the large flat faceting -enchanting, really.  The final detail is a small round opal, bezel set on the front of each earring.  Again, the opals are not matched, one is noticeably larger then the other.  I love the imperfectness of them!  These are a steal at just $350.

Perhaps Marilyn Monroe said it best –  “Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.”
