Joe’s Special Box – Volume 114

Baubles, Bling, and A Collector’s Things

It’s May.  Usually this month finds jewelry junkies talking about all things yellow gold, as May is gold month.  Coming in at a close second would be emeralds…  the birthstone for this month.  However, sometimes jewelry has a mind of it’s own…  this ring is a perfect example.  We have been talking about it since we got it – but it doesn’t fit either of the previous two criteria.  

A new addition hand-picked by Joe, this ring is made entirely from 18 karat white gold.  While those bright green side stones might have you thinking emerald…  they’re anything but.  These vivid verdant gems are actually Tsavorite, also known as green garnet.  This lesser-known gemstone brings an unexpected element to the shoulders of this Art Deco reproduction ring.  Further accented by milgrain edging and angular filigree, there is nothing to change about this beauty.  

The crowning glory is a dazzling 1.03 carat round brilliant diamond.  The bright white color of this center stone is the ideal contrast to the bold green garnet side stones.  Priced at $6200, this ring is perfect for someone looking for a traditional style with a surprise twist.  Give us a call or pop into our showroom to make it yours today.

Joe’s Special Box – Volume 30

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!
