Joe’s Special Box – Volume 39

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and A Collector’s Things

This week, I am revisiting an old favorite…  this dainty pendant from the turn of the century.  You can call it late Edwardian or you can call it early Art Deco, I simply call it beautiful.  I shared it with you several months ago, and to be quite honest, I am amazed that we still have it.  Now…  that could be because it’s tucked away in Joe’s Special Box!  I am certain that if it were in our showcase, some lucky girl would have snatched it up long ago!

Handcrafted entirely of platinum, this fine piece features classic filigree design.  Two hearts, created by delicate wirework combine with natural pearls, diamonds and a bright green emerald in perfect harmony.  Made in five separate segments from the bail to the pearl tip, each portion is jointed, allowing the pendant to move gracefully with the body.  Simple elegance makes this pendant an ideal statement piece, able to be worn every day.  Make it yours for just $1600.00.

Joe’s Special Box – Volume 15

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and A Collector’s Things

As I lay this bracelet across my wrist, I am hypnotized.  The light dances across every stone.  All 150 of them.  No picture can capture the beauty of this piece, although we have certainly tried.  Each element has combined to create a vision of Art Deco perfection.  The unusual pairing of bright green emeralds and black onyx is accented by a duo of single cut and rose cut diamonds.  These diamonds have been hand fitted to carved platinum links – a repeating pattern of style and elegance.  It is truly remarkable, and has certainly earned it’s place in Joe’s Special Box.  Priced at $19,800 – this treasure is not for the faint of heart!

The Ties That Bind

Joden Girl

Baubles and Bling – It’s a family thing!

These bright and colorful earrings are an integral part of a suite of jewelry recently acquired at Joden.  Like many parures, it is comprised of multiple pieces that can be disassembled and then reconfigured to create different looks.  

The collection is ensconced in the original fitted leather case…  with the jewelers name carefully inscribed on the ivory satin lining.

Krausz Testverek – or Krausz Siblings – a jewelry store located in Budapest in the late 1800’s into the early 1900’s.  Like Joden, it was a family owned business and according to these lovely examples of advertising – they too specialized in antique jewelry.

Five individual components (a necklet, a brooch, a pair of earrings, a small drop pendant, and a connecting segment) are elaborately set with a multitude of color.  Foiled settings bring life to the square cut emeralds and peridot.  These gems are evenly spaced by lavish pops of pink tourmaline and white pearls.  Further enhancing the design is an intricate pattern of black, white, and blue enamel. 

 

Here you can see each individual piece and then the necklace fully united.  So many possibilities – check it out on this video…


Perhaps you’re thinking that you don’t have anywhere to wear this – but let’s break it down.  Wear the earrings and brooch to work, add in the necklet for dinner out.  And for special occasions, clip it all together for an amazing statement necklace!  Fashion and function, you can’t go wrong.
