When Too Much is Just Right

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and Fancy Things

Recently, I stumbled upon a quote that really resounded with me…  it’s circulated on Facebook numerous times and I’m sure you’ve seen it, heard it, and read it for yourself, but the sentiment bears repeating.  Here’s a link for the entire text, the crux of it is this… 

“You are not everyone’s cup of tea.  And that’s okay.”

Jewelry is very much the same…  it comes in all shapes and sizes.  Styles range from classic and traditional to wildly over the top.  Here at Joden, I often hear “It’s just too much!” – and they aren’t referring to the price!  My job is all about personalities and finding the perfect match between the client and the piece. 

If you’re like me, and people often refer to you as “too much”…  then this ring is for you.

The wide pave ribbon of diamonds is stunning.  Crafted from 18 karat white gold and set edge to edge with nearly five carats of yellow and white diamonds, it makes a bold statement.  This ring will not sit quietly on your finger – it screams “Look at me!” 

  

Here, we’re showing it with an intricate duo of colored diamond bands.   Multicolor gold has been set with pink, yellow, and white diamonds to perfection.  Their non-traditional style is entirely unique…  just like the women who will wear them. 

If “too much” is just right for you, come to Joden where nothing is ordinary and everything is extraordinary.

Every Girl Needs A Little Black Dress

Baubles, Bling, and Dreamy Things

Believe it or not, there IS a downside to being surrounded by beautiful jewelry every day.  I have become spoiled.  Really spoiled.  I don’t even bat an eye at a piece that is less than extraordinary.

This Art Nouveau necklace had me doing a double-take…  and that’s a rarity.  It is absolutely fantastic – from the tiny handmade links of the chain to the finely carved bow that crowns the center section.  Every little detail is delightful.

It is an exceptional example of a festoon necklace – by definition, a curved necklace comprised of flowers, ribbons, or leaves used as decorative elements with swags or draped chain as part of the design.  This type of necklace was first made popular during the Georgian period.  Each era since has had its own version of the style.

Three pieces of cobalt blue glass provide the perfect background for each of the details described above; tiny flowers crafted from sterling silver set with rose cut diamonds, buttery gold leaves hand carved from 18 karat yellow gold, and that charming little bow (my favorite part!) tipped with a pair of natural pearls.

This necklace is “the little black dress” of antique jewelry.  It would be perfect for a bride on her wedding day…  something old AND blue but it could just as easily be worn with jeans and boots.  It’s practically perfect in every way.

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and Collectible Things

No one comes to Joden by accident.  Everyone who walks through the door does so intentionally.  Drawn here by stunning billboards, glossy magazine ads, or the recommendation of a friend.  For each of these people, Joden is a destination.

People come to us for the extraordinary – the rare and unusual.  Be it vintage or modern, Joden is a haven of unique treasures.  Eclectic inventory tends to attract eclectic clients.  Our customers are nontraditional people looking for statement pieces.  Many of them are collectors looking for exceptional acquisitions.

Quite often, a first-time buyer – a vintage virgin, if you will – is quickly converted to a collector.  Many times this is sparked by a charming antique engagement ring, like the one pictured above.  This ring was crafted in the mid-1920’s of 18 karat white gold.  The carved mounting features a dazzling round diamond center accented by a pair of baguette cut sapphire sides.  This is a ring that leaves a girl wanting more.

The platinum sapphire and diamond pendant and the Art Deco circle pin pictured next are perfect companions for this ring.  Both feature rich blue sapphires and round brilliant diamonds.  These and countless others are waiting for you.  No matter what kind of jewelry sparks your passion, the journey begins with you and ends when you reach your destination, Joden Jewelers.
