Pick of the Week – Volume Fifteen

Joden Girl

Baubles and Bling with Unbelievable Pricing

This sweet little number will steal your heart!  Bridging two periods, the Art Deco era and the cusp of Retro, this ring is absolute perfection from top to bottom.  

Handmade entirely from platinum, this vintage beauty is in excellent condition.  A .22 carat transitional cut diamond is nestled within a square setting.  Small but mighty, the diamond hits the charts at an H color, VS1-2 in clarity.  With grading like that, this gem glitters from every angle.  

Flanking the center stone are six single-cut diamonds.  These sparklers are hand-fitted in milgrain-edged settings that form an elegant triangle on each side.  The shank mimics a split design at the top of the shoulder and then comes together in a solid piece to form the band.  

The low-profile style makes this ring extremely wearable.  I can see so many purposes for this tiny treasure…  an engagement ring or a promise ring.  It stacks beautifully but is also great on its own.  Gift it for graduation, Christmas, or for no reason at all.  

Previously priced at $1500, this charmer is the Pick of the Week!  You might want to sit down for this – it’s now available for just $965.00!  Hop on over to our site and make it yours today.

Baubles, Bling and Art Deco Things

Edwardian or Art Deco?  The answer is a little of both…  measuring 7.25 inches, this crossover bracelet is absolutely amazing!  Articulated links alternate – first, a diamond encrusted open-centered oval and then an elongated link featuring a honey-comb pattern.  A push clasp hides seamlessly within the last link, creating an endless display of brilliance around the wrist.  

A wisp of color pops from the middle of four segments…  natural square-cut emeralds.  These bright beauties have a combined weight of 1.00 carat and draw the eye, adding yet another layer of dimension to this gem.  Crafted somewhere between 1918-1920, this late Edwardian or early Art Deco bracelet has enchanted me.  

 

The curved lines and lace-like appearance of the very early 1900’s combine with the geometric, symmetrical style of the following decade.  The Edwardian Era (1901-1910) heavily influenced Art Deco design – jewelry from both eras was predominately platinum.  It was the metal of choice due to it’s strength, lasting luster, and malleability.  Hand-set with diamonds, each individual setting is lined with tiny beads – a technique called milgrain.  Yet another commonality between the two periods.  

There are one hundred and eighty old cut diamonds enveloping the entire length of the piece.  Each one is bead set with a total weight of 2.25 carats.  Art Deco emerged in 1925, although pieces can be found as early as 1920.  Though it can be difficult to determine the exact age of a piece, the quality of fine period jewelry speaks for itself.  No artistic movement since Art Deco has so completely captivated the world.  The creativity and spirit of the period continues to endure.  Own this iconic piece of arm candy for just $8,800.00.

Baubles, Bling, and Diamond Rings

In 2019, more and more couples are choosing a vintage engagement ring.  For those seeking quality craftsmanship, great value and distinctive design – a one-of-a-kind ring from our estate department is the perfect choice.  Our vast inventory offers everything from Georgian to modern, but there’s no question that the pieces from the Art Deco period bring the most oohs and aahs from our customers! 

The 1920’s and 1930’s produced a plethora of jewelry designs influenced by bold geometric patterns with a decidedly more modern feel than previous years.  The Art Deco era represented luxury and glamour, executed with exquisite expertise.  At Joden, our Deco case is filled to overflowing with platinum and white gold diamond rings ideal for engagements!  Here are three of our current favs…

Each of these beauties features an Old European Cut center accented by single-cut diamond trim.  Other elements like delicate filigree wire-work and  milgrain beaded edges bring the styles to life.  

 

First, we have an 18 karat white gold dream featuring a .60 carat bezel-set diamond center.  A vining leaf pattern creates the structure of each side while a singular diamond accents brings a hint of sparkle.  It glistens on the hand for just $1,650.00.

Next is a vision in platinum.  This simple but elegant ring contains a .45 carat diamond center.  Straight edges and delicate beading add a bit of flair to this classically beautiful piece.  It’s priced right at $1,750.00.

Last but certainly not least is this platinum pyramid-style ring.  Four rows of diamonds build upward in a square fashion, crowned by a dazzling .65 carat Old European Cut diamond.  The twenty-four single cut diamonds that decorate each level of the pyramid add an additional .35 carat…  that brings this stunner to 1.00 carat of total diamond weight!  All for just $2,250.00.

I love sharing rings like these!  Sophisticated style and Old World technique combined with an affordable price that won’t break the bank.  Each of these and so much more is available every day in the estate department at Joden.
