Joe’s Special Box – Volume 29

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and A Collector’s Things

This piece is a home run for me in more ways than one.   A lovely little Art Nouveau gem – meticulously carved from high karat yellow gold.  The intricate basket-weave pattern features soft swirls mixed with textured lines.  Cobalt blue enameling provides a bright pop of color.  Five natural pearls are nestled into the open spaces.  Made around the turn of the 20th century, this pendant could easily become a signature piece in any wardrobe.  The back features a removable glass lid – it covers a compartment that could be used for a photograph, a lock of hair, or both. I love this simple, yet terribly sentimental detail.  It brings to mind the old saying… 

“Something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue.”

Wouldn’t this be a perfect gift for a new bride on her wedding day?  I think so!  Personally, I’d be happy to receive it for any reason…  or for no reason at all.  This piece (tucked away in Joe’s Special Box) is available now for $1,280.00.
