Joe’s Special Box – Volume 46

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and A Collector’s Things

Meet my newest obsession!  I have always been a fan of emerald-cut diamonds.  I love the sleek lines, the elongated geometric shape and the classic style.  But this charmer caught me by surprise.  The center stone has ALOT of punch for the money – and it’s actually a bit of designer genius.  This step-cut diamond looks like a one carat diamond, but actually only weighs .50 carat.  You may be wondering, how can that be?  As I said, the creator of this ring was a bit of a genius.  The diamond is surrounded by a halo of high-polished 14 karat white gold.  This thin band of metal actually makes the diamond look larger and is difficult to detect without using a loupe or magnification.  A small straight baguette cut diamond sits to the right and left of the center stone.  It’s a tiny yet significant detail that enhances the timeless feel of this engagement ring.  Priced at $3500, this is the kind of piece that I love to find in Joe’s Special Box.  I know that it will have a new life beyond Joden – some lucky girl will wear this ring for the rest of her life.  And hopefully, she’ll pass it on to a daughter or a son.  It will become an heirloom.
