Baubles and Bling that Make the Holidays Sing!

Holiday parties: the office get-together, the family reunion, the annual “Friendsgiving” – they’re just around the corner.  If you’re anything like me, you’ll spend hours in front of your closet debating what to wear.  The stack of dresses, blouses, skirts and slacks will grow taller with each passing moment.  Once I’ve finally settled on the perfect ensemble – then it’s time for the fun, the bling!  Unfortunately, my earring selection is limited to a pile of silver hoops in varying sizes and a pair of diamond stud earrings.  And while these are ideal for every day, sometimes a girl needs a little more!

A little more indeed…  imagine clasping these beauties onto your earlobes.  A perfectly matched pair of rich violet cushion cut amethysts are embellished by a triple halo design…  all set in 18 karat rose gold.  A dazzling array of 132 brilliant diamonds and 40 oval amethysts come together in a truly spectacular creation.  

 

These earrings feature fold-over Omega backs, a classic detail of the finest jewelry.  The signature reveals that “Crivelli” is the genius behind the beauty.  For nearly fifty years, the name Bruno Crivelli has been synonymous with quality Italian craftsmanship.  They are known for styles with incredible texture as well as dynamic color combinations.  This pair of earrings showcases all of those elements and more.  

Moderately priced at just $2700 – these earrings will quickly become your favorites.  It’s easy to see why they have clinched the week three spot on my list of gift-worthy holiday bling.  Over the next few weeks, when you find yourself staring hopelessly into your closet – make accessorizing a snap with these earrings from Joden.

Joe’s Special Box – Volume 24

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and A Collector’s Things

Lately, I’ve really been feeling yellow gold.  It’s classic.  Timeless.  Much like this little Victorian ring that I found in Joe’s Special Box yesterday morning.  Even though this beauty was made over 150 years ago, the clean lines are still on trend with today’s style…  and who can resist a killer Old Mine Cut diamond?  Weighing just over .60 carats, this cushion-shaped diamond sparkles from every angle.  It’s held in place by eight golden prongs and sits exquisitely between a pair of millegrained bars.  The unique geometric pattern engraved into the wide band completes the look of this one-of-a-kind solitaire ring.  

Look how tiny it is!  I have fairly small fingers (ring finger size 4.5) – so you can see how little this 19th century diamond ring really is…  just under a size 3.  Perfectly petite in every way.  Luckily, our expert craftsman can size it to fit nearly anyone’s hand.  Priced ring at just $1800 – this antique ring is available now.  Make sure you mention that it can be found in Joe’s Special Box.

The “B” Word

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling and Financial Things

Let’s face it…  the “B” word – it’s the word that makes all girls cringe – BUDGET!  While it may be awkward to talk about, the budget is one of the most crucial pieces of information in the quest to find the ideal engagement ring.  Some girls are economical, frugal even…  others are definitely budget busters!  We have rings for both, and everyone in between. 

Here are three of my current favorites –

Now let’s take a closer look at each one…

  

Made entirely of platinum, this sweet little beauty dates back to the end of the Art Deco period – 1940.  A .22 carat transitional cut round brilliant diamond is nestled in a classic square-cornered setting.  Additional vintage details include milgrain beaded edges, angular lines, and single-cut diamond trim.  Priced at just $1500, this one won’t break the bank!

  

For me, this one is all about that killer Old Mine Cut diamond in the center…  weighing in at 1.23 carats, it is simply stunning.  This diamond strikes the perfect balance of the four C’s  – that cushion cut, that beautiful white color, no visible imperfections, and it weighs just over one carat.  What more could a girl want? 

 

This ring is like a darling little bow tied on top of your finger.  Handmade from 18 karat white gold, the loops of the bow curl around the delicate diamond trim.  The center is reminiscent of the first ring, with a .25 carat diamond set in a square-cornered design.  Also budget friendly (priced at $1400.00), it won’t last long.

One, two, even three months salary…  these can seem like very daunting numbers.  And yet, many experts recommend using these guidelines to determine your engagement ring budget.  Consider them exactly that – a guideline, a suggestion.  Whether your budget is $100 or $100,000 – your ring is at Joden Jewelers.  Come visit me…  you’ll see for yourself that the only thing greater than our selection is our customer service.
