Joe’s Special Box – Volume 52

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and A Collector’s Things

The array of treasures in Joe’s Special Box never ceases to amaze me…  like this little bauble, for example.  It’s just so cool!  I love every aspect of it – from the elegant sweep of the pirate cutlass sword to the precise white enamel lines on the headdress.  For a decade during the late Victorian Period, from 1860-1870, there was a smaller movement known as Egyptian Revival. 

Ancient Egypt was an inspiration for artisans of all types – the passion for Egyptian artifacts and style swept across Europe like wildfire.  Jewelry from this period is highly prized among collectors.  The simple sophistication of this brooch is the very thing that makes it as wearable today as it was when it was made.  Two rows of rose cut diamonds add a hint of sparkle to the strong lines of the carved face.  I am picturing it on a scarf, a lapel…  or converted to a necklace!  Reasonably priced at $1,750.00 – this piece awaits you at Joden Jewelers.  And as always…
