The Space Between

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and a Wrap Around Ring

With only three shopping days left until Christmas, the holiday panic has set in!  Stores are filled with customers who just don’t know what to buy!  Don’t let it get you.  At Joden, we can solve all your gift-giving dilemmas.  We have perfect pieces for everyone on your list…  we’ll even wrap it with a pretty bow!

Check out my pick for today… an absolutely adorable wrap ring.  This is not your mom’s wrap ring…  instead, it’s like a little hug for your finger.  Made from 14 karat rose gold, this piece is a play on a bypass ring.  One end features a lovely lavender colored amethyst nestled into a delicate halo comprised of twenty-eight round brilliant diamonds, while the other end is a tiny micro-pave diamond ball.  The 2.38-carat amethyst is specially cut with a checkerboard style faceting that adds to the modern feel of the ring.  The forty-seven diamonds that make up the two stations have a combined total weight of .12 carats.  It’s the ideal amount of sparkle!

While I am crazy for both of these elements, the best part of this ring is the space between them.  Look at it on my hand (excuse my un-manicured nails!).  The tiny opening makes this ring.  It’s everything!  

I’m sure you’re wondering about the price, right?  I am delighted to tell you that this whimsical little beauty is priced at just $550.  It’s definitely budget friendly, and it’s available now at Joden Jewelers.

Joe’s Special Box – Volume 41

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and A Collector’s Things

After nearly 50 years in business, Joe still handpicks each piece that makes its way into the dazzling array of gems and baubles filling the showcases at Joden.  From the finest antiques to brand new trends, Joe has an undeniable eye for style.  Just the other day, a package arrived with a few new bits for holiday shoppers… a charming stack of colorful eternity bands, a wide openwork diamond ring, and this…

Oh.  My.  Gee.  This striking beauty was zipped into a tiny clear plastic bag nestled among a dozen other pieces strewn across the white sorting pad on Joe’s desk.  Casually resting between random doodles and scribbled notes, there it was… a blue topaz and diamond dreamboat.  

An elongated emerald cut Swiss Blue Topaz sits parallel with the length of your finger in this 14 karat white gold stunner.  This bright stone is accented by a delicate halo of round brilliant diamonds and a pair of straight baguette cut diamonds that flank the center stone.  More round diamonds wink from each shoulder.  It positively screams classic elegance.  It’s hard to believe that this is a modern manufactured piece.  It’s even harder to believe that it sells for just $695!  

This beauty won’t last long…  in fact, I bet it doesn’t last the week.  As soon as I take it off my hand and put it in the showcase, that is!

Ring Around the Rosey

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and a Rose Cut Ring

I stumbled across this ring last week – and I haven’t stopped thinking about it since!  First, I showed it to my work friends, only to discover that they love it as much as I do.  Then, I added to the diamond case, thinking that some lucky girl should have it for her engagement ring.  Finally, yesterday I spirited it away to take some photos so I could share it with you.  It’s really occupying too much of my time BUT just look at it!

This 14 karat rose gold ring is absolutely charming.  First – let’s talk about that rose cut diamond center…  weighing in at .52 carats, it is dazzling.  Right now, you may be wondering “What is a rose cut?”  This unique cutting technique has been around for more than 500 years.  It features a flat bottom with a domed top (bearing a resemblance to the flower for which it was named).  The top portion showcases triangular shaped facets giving it a soft glow.  Surrounding this rose cut is a round diamond halo – adding a second dimension of sparkle.  This ring has a little secret – and it’s my favorite detail –

Don’t you just love this tiny bridge of diamonds on each side?  I sure do!  The additional 26 diamonds add another .14 carats of bling, bringing the total diamond weight to .66 carats…  but it looks like so much more!  This ring is available in our showroom now (as soon as I put it back) for just $1900.  It’s ALOT of look for that price.  You have to see it to believe it!
