Put A Ring On It

 Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling and Holiday Things

Just a couple days ago, I woke up to a winter wonderland… a soft pillow-y blanket of snow covered everything in sight.  That clinched it – the holidays are nearly here.  Let the shopping begin!   

With a year like 2020, I have to wonder what that might look like.  I am a BIG fan of Black Friday and have eagerly gone out in the wee hours of the morning year after year in search of the perfect gifts and the best bargains.  Doorbuster deals draw budget-conscious buyers by the thousands.  Many retailers are prepping for online sales – definitely a smart bet.  

At Joden, we’re offering a hybrid model…  a little bit of everything!  Dana has been loading the website with new arrivals and Pick of the Week values.  Our Instagram and Facebook pages are overflowing with vintage treasures and modern gems.  

Earrings are always a popular choice; this week, we have three pair sure to please anyone on your list.  I am loving this unbeatable combination of 14 karat rose gold with rich purple amethysts.  These stud-style earrings are anything but simple.  One hundred and twenty-eight round brilliant diamonds surround those bright center stones in perfect halos for a combined weight of .40 carat.  Signed “Zeghani”, these beauties are available for just $880.00.

Next up – a unique twist on the classic halo design.  These 14 karat white gold sparklers feature a lovely pair of emerald cut green tourmaline centers.  These deep green stones are ensconced within a rectangular ring of diamonds complete with a small diamond cap.  There are fifty diamonds in all for a combined weight of .50 carat.  Add a bit of sparkle to your earlobes with these charmers for just $980.00.

The elegant setting on these 14 karat white gold ruby earrings is everything.  Tiny beaded swirls create a vintage-inspired filigree look complete with not one but two diamond halos…  one on the top and another on the outer edge!  This attention to detail is exactly what makes these earrings shine.  These precious gems bring the bling for $1700.00.

These new arrivals haven’t made our website just yet… for more information, stop in to our 144 South Broad Street showroom.  Or, you could take advantage of our latest service…  a personal shopper.  Holiday Concierge Service is available at the click of a button.  Our experts will send full color photos, detailed descriptions and pricing to your phone or email.  We’ll box, gift-wrap and ship your Joden gifts anywhere in the United States at no additional charge!

A Pair of Pears

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and Shapely Things

Just when I think that the halo craze must surely be coming to an end…  a new twist enters the game and we’re off and running again.  There is no question that fancy-shaped center stones have been on FIRE this year.  In fact, the marquise cut was predicted to be THE shape for 2019.  We added our two cents to that prophecy with A Queen Returns back in February.  With fall on the horizon, I am tentatively throwing in the towel on that one.  While we definitely sold a marquise here and there, the real star of the show this year has been the pear.  

Much as I hate to admit it, even I have been a smitten kitten where this modern double-halo engagement ring is concerned.  It goes against everything I usually like…  but it’s just so sparkly!  I am powerless to resist it.  A dazzling white pear brilliant cut diamond sits center stage in this 18 karat white gold contemporary beauty.  Weighing .48 carat, this diamond packs a punch.  It is surrounded by not one but two diamond halos created from fifty-one round diamonds that wrap around the center then cascade down the shoulders.  The side stones add an additional .45 carat to this ring, bringing the total diamond weight to .93 carat.  Priced at just $2,150, this is A LOT of look for the money.  

Shortly after I discovered the shiny new ring shown above, I stumbled across this tarnished old gem.  Featuring a rose-cut pear-shaped diamond, this 9 karat yellow gold stunner was handcrafted nearly 200 years ago.  It’s Georgian, made in the 1830’s.  Twelve additional rose cut diamonds add another layer of subtle shine to this understated piece.  The total diamond weight comes in at just over a half carat, .55 to be exact.  Each nook and cranny of the softly scalloped edge is rich with a dark patina, achieved solely with age.  It shimmers with quiet beauty for just $925.  

And so I ask you the same question I have been asking myself…  which one will it be?  Are you drawn glossy shine of the new ring or do you covet the gleaming glow of the antique bauble?  Cast your vote on our Instagram post!
