Joe’s Special Box – Volume 82

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and A Collector’s Things

This week’s edition of Joe’s Special Box is so EXTRA!  Not only were these two beauties hand-selected by Joe, they were also among the “Top Ten of the Best Rings Available at Joden“!  In August, we collaborated with the hottest jewelry blogger in America, Danielle Miele.  She is the author of Gem Gossip – a spirited dialogue featuring the best of the best in fine jewelry.  

Danielle got a first hand glimpse at the treasure trove that is Joe’s Special Box.  Concentrating only on rings, she selected ten beauties!  These two feel like they belong together…  let’s check out this charmer.  An Edwardian dream, this freeform ring features 28 rose cut diamonds and a singular natural pearl.  It’s elegance with a bit of flair.  Moderately priced at $1300, we couldn’t resist it and neither should you!  

Speaking of Edwardian elegance…  I mean, HELLO!  A spiderweb of filigree creates a haven for a series of six bezel set Old European Cut diamonds.  Additionally, there are four more diamonds set into the triangular shaped corner embellishment.  One delightfully creamy pearl sits center stage – caught in the web of this bold ring.  I love it on an index or middle finger – it’s a perfect right hand ring for only $3450.00.

Go give Danielle some love and then visit us at Joden where the choices are only limited by your imagination.

Joe’s Special Box – Volume 69

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and A Collector’s Things

Nine years.  That’s how long the Edwardian Period lasted.  From 1901-1910 – this era produced some of the most beautiful and highly sought after jewelry of all time.  In the early days, platinum masterpieces featured a yellow gold base, like this ethereal gem…

A stunning combination of Old European Cut diamonds, Rose Cut diamonds, and one natural pearl create pure magic.  The seven larger stones have a combined weight of 1.50 carats, while an additional 39 rose cut diamonds amp up the bling factor.  Every knife-edge is hand decorated with a small beaded ridge technique referred to as milgrain.  It softens the overall look of this early 20th century necklet which is suspended from a light platinum chain.  The jewels from this time are often compared to petit point embroidery due to their delicate and lacy appearance.  Perfect for a bride on her wedding day or simply an evening on the town, make this beauty yours for just $3850.  Available now in Joe’s Special Box.

Joe’s Special Box – Volume 68

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and A Collector’s Things

Joe’s Special Box is a virtual treasure trove of super sweet vintage jewels.  What was once a small square box has now become three overflowing bins…  one of which is nothing but rings.  Dainty Edwardian charmers, Art Deco gems and a few Victorian beauties like this one.  

Made in England in 1887, this 15 karat yellow gold enchantress is absolutely perfect.  Set in a diagonal swirl across the center are an alternating series of three natural pearls and a two bright red rubies.  Engraved scrolls fan out from the center section adding another layer of dimension.  A series of hallmarks are deeply etched into the inside shank of the piece, ensuring the karatage as well as the age of this 19th century prize.  The gold is silky smooth and glides over the knuckle to sit comfortably on any hand.  I love it on an index or middle finger.  The condition is mint – a pleasant surprise for a 132 year old ring.  Add it to your collection now for now for just $680.
