Pick of the Week – Volume Six

Joden Girl

Baubles and Bling with Unbelievable Pricing

I am often amazed at how a truly extraordinary piece of jewelry can occasionally be overlooked amid our vast inventory.  It’s no secret that the cases at Joden are overflowing with treasures of all varieties…  antique, estate, and modern.  Perhaps you’ll remember that some of the most rare and unique items are often scooped up and squirreled away… it’s a private collection called Joe’s Special Box.  For more than two years, I have shared my favorite pieces from this collection in a blog bearing the same name. 

The sixth edition of The Pick of the Week was an earlier personal favorite of mine…  Joe’s Special Box – Volume 11.    Initially I found myself drawn to the charming appearance of the navette-shaped onyx adorned with a delicate seed pearl and rose-cut diamond flower.  

Then I experienced a bit of sticker shock upon learning that this deceptively simple ring was priced at $1,380.00.  I questioned Joe about it and discovered the laborious techniques involved in hand-crafting this Victorian beauty including a time-honored art called trumming.  

As hard as it is for me to believe, somehow this ring still hasn’t found it’s forever home.  That made it a perfect fit for the Pick of the Week!  Painstakingly crafted from a singular piece of 18 karat rosy gold, this triple-split shank gem with seed pearl and rose cut diamond trim is up for grabs.  Originally priced at $1,380.00 on our site, this baby has been reduced to just $980!  Don’t miss out on this short-term deal – the special pricing is available for just one week.  You deserve a bit of retail therapy – go to our site and grab it!

Joe’s Special Box – Volume 25

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and A Collector’s Things

There’s no question that the most popular vintage jewelry at Joden is from the Art Deco period.  The iconic platinum and white gold jewelry from the 1920-1930’s is highly sought after and offers unique style elements that can’t be found in modern jewelry.  Camphor glass is one such example of this.  It looks like a piece of frosted crystal and is usually set with a singular diamond in the center.  This trend was often combined with fine filigree work to create delicately beautiful jewels.  

This bracelet is a stellar example of both design details – three identical pieces of camphor glass are evenly spaced between thirteen lacy filigree links.  I love the starburst design that seems to spread out from the diamond center of each glass piece.  It’s quite lovely against the skin…  allowing the color to shine through.  This particular bracelet can be found (as you may have guessed) in Joe’s Special Box and is moderately priced at $2500.00.

Joe’s Special Box – Volume 21

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and A Collector’s Things

This Georgian ring is complete perfection – from the cushion cut .50 carat Burma ruby in the center to the swirls and whorls of 18 karat yellow gold that create the band.  Probably made during the early to mid-1800’s, this open work beauty is in mint condition and would be an asset to any jewelry box.  


My eyes hardly know what to look at first…  the rich red of the ruby, those killer Old Mine Cut diamonds, or the intricate beaded gold work.  Each detail has been tended to with the utmost care, not one thing was neglected.  I can see why Joe chose to add this ring to his Special Box.  Priced at $2550, it’s ideal for a non-traditional engagement ring or a right hand ring.  Visit us at Joden and see it for yourself.
