Joe’s Special Box – Volume 30

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and A Collector’s Things

Now that it’s October, I couldn’t wait to share this delicate beauty from Joe’s Special Box.  Opal is the October birthstone…  and this one is super sweet.  A fire of green, orange, and blue create a spectacular flash of color in the center stone while two tiny diamonds add just a hint of sparkle.  These three gems are bordered by dainty gold swirls, another classic Victorian detail.  My absolute favorite design element of this piece is the whimsical tilt – it’s simply charming!  This little enchantress is also budget friendly – modestly priced at just $450.  A steal of a deal for an authentic antique ring.  Come visit me at Joden and check it out for yourself.

Baubles, Bling, and Emerald Rings

Wednesday was my birthday – the 31st of May…  making emerald my birthstone.  It’s rare that I find a piece of emerald jewelry that appeals to me, and when I do – the price usually exceeds my comfort zone.

To be considered fine quality, these gems must exemplify two attributes – an intense green hue that can only be described as “emerald green” and a high degree of transparency.  Stones like this are rare.  And usually quite expensive.  So, when I saw this little beauty – I was pleasantly surprised.  I love the whimsical flower design (of course!) – AND it’s affordable. 

White gold, natural pear-shaped emeralds, and tiny diamond accents combine perfectly to create this five-petal blossom.  For me, it’s a right hand ring… I love the way it looks on a middle finger!  You will, too.  Go to our site and check it out.

If you’re looking for a classic style, these two pieces are ideal.  Both rings feature delicate diamond halos encircling round emeralds – traditional elegance with a bright pop of color.  Choose one for your right hand, or your left…  you can’t go wrong!

Baubles, Bling, and Birthstone Things

For the third gift of Christmas, it’s all about birthstones – that special stone corresponding to the month you were born. There are various lists out there and alternate choices for some months, however, this one seems to be generally accepted:

birthstones

Did you know that more babies are born in August than any other month? It’s true; making peridot the most common birthstone. The peridot jewelry made during the Art Nouveau period was anything BUT common. Check out this exceptional example from the late 1890’s.  Priced right at $4500, it’s an Art Nouveau must!

September boasts the second highest number of births – making sapphire quite a popular birthstone as well. These Edwardian earrings appeal to my love of converted jewelry.  Once, they were graced the cuffs of a gentleman’s shirt, now they are a fantastic pair of earrings featuring intricate patterns of engraving and two tiny cabochon sapphires. Yours for just $400!

Rounding out the top three most popular birth months is July – giving us lots of ruby babies. At Joden we offer a wide selection of Victorian rings…  these five are among the cream of the crop. Each of them is in pristine condition utilizing seed pearls and diamonds to enhance their ruby centers. These rings are all available in our showroom; priced between $600-$1900 each. Take one home today!
