Baubles, Bling, and Phenomenal Things

Gemstones are a wonder of nature – stunningly beautiful crystals and rocks dug from the Earth’s crust.  Every color of the rainbow…  from the deepest reds to hypnotic blues; each one is a marvel to behold.  Some stones offer more than just an alluring hue – a few stones also have unique properties that further enhance their natural appeal. 

The top ring in this photo features a round black opal paired with two round brilliant diamonds all set within a classic 18 karat white gold three stone ring.  Depending on the environmental conditions when the stone was formed, Opal can take on a variety of colors…   everything from translucent to black.  Black opals are the most rare while the white and green tones are most common.  This particular black opal blazes with flashes of red, orange, blue and green. 

 

Handmade just before the start of WWII, this ring has a timeless style that transcends current modern trends.  Priced at just $5,500.00 (an absolute steal for a natural 3.00 carat black opal!), the everlasting elegance of this piece is not to be missed.

This three-stone ring was handcrafted just after the turn of the century during the Edwardian period, circa 1910.  Claw-type prongs hold each of the stones:  two Old European Cut Diamonds and one Chrysoberyl Catseye, aptly named for its uncanny resemblance to a cat’s eye.  This phenomenon is created by special rutile crystals inside the stone that produce a dazzling effect referred to as chatoyancy.  The term “milk and honey” is sometimes used to describe the milky ray of white light that crosses over the honey-colored background.  This head turner is available on our website for $5500.00. 

Whether you’re drawn to gemstones for their brilliant colors or the rare qualities that make each one unique, the best place to find them is the same…  Joden Jewelers.  The exquisite selection begins with tradition and ends with the limits of your imagination.

We’ve Got the Blues

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and Cerulean Things

Did you ever take one of those Facebook quizzes…  like “What is the color of your soul?”  For me, the answer is always blue.  When I was a teenager, I had a mood ring.  It didn’t seem to matter what my mood was, the stone never changed colors…  it was a constant shade of blue.  It makes perfect sense…  whether it be cobalt, denim, indigo or teal; midnight, navy, cyan or cerulean – blue is my jam.  It reminds me of a beautiful summer sky and long lazy days at the ocean.  It speaks to me…

You can imagine how much I love each of these bands!  From the enameled Lily of the Valley on the left to the swirls of blue enamel in the center, and ending with modern circles of white gold and blue enamel on the right – each ring is more unique than the last.

    

The first band is an 18 karat white gold wide band with a cobalt blue enamel backdrop featuring a Lily of the Valley design.  The leaves are a bright green enamel with a tiny fully faceted round brilliant diamond forming each flower.  The flowers invert with each blossom to create an endless pattern.  This ring would make a perfect right hand ring or a non-traditional wedding band.  It’s available on our site for just $1300.00.

The second band is also created from 18 karat white gold.  The unique design of this piece is reminiscent of a stained glass window.  Sections of white gold are used to create the circular framework, and a bright blue enamel fills each space to finish the look.  This kind of enameling is called plique-a-jour.  Priced at just $1200.00, this unusual piece is also available on our site. 

Chase away the blues with one of these stylish and fun bands!  Check them out on our site or drop by our showroom today.  You won’t be singing the blues anymore!
