The Son and Stars

Baubles, Bling and Heavenly Things

“I am the light of the world, whomever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”

John 8:12

For more than 2000 years, the stars have been a symbol of hope.  Scripture tells us that three wisemen followed the Star of Bethlehem to Jerusalem to find the baby Jesus, the Messiah.  The birth of Christ is the ultimate promise of hope and salvation…  guided by a star.  

This classically styled ring resembles a signet with a low-profile oval center atop a smooth shank.  Made from 10 karat yellow gold, the ring features a heavenly array of five six-pointed stars and a setting sun.  Each six-pointed star is set within a bright blue sky.  This azure horizon is actually created from guilloche enameling, the gold was etched with diagonal lines and then coated with translucent blue enamel, giving the scene depth and dimension.

The sun appears to be rising from the base of the ring.  The sun is a life-giving and life-sustaining celestial body that is often thought to symbolize the Son of God.  It is also believed to represent growth, health and the cycle of life.  

Carefully engraved inside the ring are the initials “B. T.” and the date “1912”.  This was the very end of the Art Nouveau era and the beginning of Art Deco.  Now, over 100 years later, the symbolism of this unique ring is just as relevant as it was then…  hope for the future, good health and a new beginning.  Priced at just $475, this talisman is available now.  Call us for additional details.

Blue Moon

Baubles, Bling and Celestial Things

Instagram is filled with all things celestial…  suns, stars and perhaps most prominent – the crescent moon.  This classic symbol has timeless appeal to audiences of all ages.  A talisman for fertility, this simple shape is iconic. 

Complete with English hallmarks, this beauty is sure to elicit quite a lot of “oohs and aahs”!  I love the softly scalloped outer edge that outlines each stone held within.  This Victorian wonder features an alternating row of bright blue sapphires and dazzling diamonds.  There are eighteen Old European Cut diamonds that have a combined total weight of .50 carat and nine round sapphires that have a combined total weight of 1.10 carats. 

Brooches were all the rage in the 1880’s when this gem was created.  But now, lifestyles have changed.  Fashion has changed.  In our expert shop, with just a few small alterations, this pin can become a beautiful pendant…  this simple revision would take this lovely piece from an occasional adornment to a signature accessory.  

We began Celestial Week with a glorious moonstone pendant, showcasing multicolored enamel patterns.  This crescent moon is the perfect way to end the week.  Priced at just $2,250.00 – it will leave you feeling anything but blue.

Pick of the Week – Volume 17

Joden Girl

Baubles and Bling with Unbelievable Pricing

Is your head in the clouds?  Are you bewitched by the light of the silvery moon?  If you answered yes, then you are on trend for the 2020 fall season.  Audiences of every age are captivated by all things celestial…  crescent moons, suns and stars!  These ethereal gems are certainly bringing the heat this year – but perhaps you were already a fan.  Our Pick of the Week will have you requesting “Beam Me Up“!

 

This late Victorian pendant centers on a luminescent oval-shaped moonstone, cut en cabochon.  Folklore abounds regarding this shimmering stone.  Some claim that it can solidify an amorous liaison while others boast of it’s talismanic properties… providing protection, health, and good fortune.  

Superstition aside, there’s no doubt about the allure of moonstone.  It is one of the most requested gems in our inventory – unfortunately, very little of it is available.  The appeal lies within two unique characteristics…  adularescence and chatoyancy.  Combined, these two phenomena create a dazzling effect that is hard to resist.  

The moonstone center is beautifully enhanced by concentric borders of both enameled designs as well as intricate metal work.  There are three oval rings, the first one (closest to the center) features a two tone light and dark blue pattern.  The second ring is a band of hand cut azures with black and white enamel enhancement and the final ring is a soft blue with tiny golden dots.  It’s reminiscent of the works of the esteemed Carlo Giuliano.  

Previously priced at $6,750.00

NEW UNBELIEVABLE PRICE:  $4,800.00
