Essential Elements

 Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling and Flowered Rings

If there is one thing that I have learned during COVID-19 quarantine, it’s to appreciate the little things… watching my boys shoot hoops outside, the immediate transformation that a fresh coat of paint can provide, and the sweet surprise of my spring flowers blooming.  With so much time on my hands, it has forced me to slow down and savor each moment.  It really is the littlest things that make the biggest difference.

The details of this ring are everything – it’s a botanical beauty!  Eighteen karat yellow gold was utilized to perfection, creating each and every element with quality and consideration.  Encircling the center stone are four flowers  – a tiny bezel-set diamond highlights the heart of each one.  Cascading down the shoulders are a graduating series of leaves, with a singular leaf marking the end.  Additional delicate wire-work, swirls and artistic lines create a vision reminiscent of antique filigree, although this gem is definitely modern.  

Not to be missed – one round brilliant diamond weighing in at exactly .50 carat sits center stage.  Sparkling with life, this stone is a true treasure with a color grade of F-G and a clarity grade of VS.  Those four small stones weigh just .01 carat each – bringing the total gem weight of the  ring to .54 carat.  

This true artistry of this piece is that no one detail is more prominent than any other, each one is essential.   And together, they combine to sing in perfect harmony.  It’s the secret of life. ♥  Priced at just $2,700 – this ring is available now.  Call us at 1-800-747-7552 to make it yours.

Joe’s Special Box – Volume 72

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and A Collector’s Things

Absolutely adorable…  what more accurate description could there be for these Victorian earrings?  They’re quite small, barely skimming the bottom of the earlobe.  Created from a rosy 14 karat gold and accented with a single cabochon opal, these earrings never made the showroom floor.  Joe scooped them up and tucked them into his special box.  I love how simple the design is…  just a tiny square, set on edge.  A series of eight delicate beads adorn each corner and the space between.  

Look at this clever catch…  a small triangular loop hinges up to snag the bottom of the wire, securing it in the ear.  Sometimes it really is the little things that make the world go round.  These perfectly petite gems are available now for just $150.  Call us today.  ♥

A Heart of Gold

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and Little Things

The difference between good things and really great things is the details…  the small elements that combine to create true works of art.  I am always on the look-out for interesting pieces to share with you – this week, I was methodically peeking through trays of gold jewelry in Joe’s office.  I wasn’t expecting inspiration to strike…  I have looked at these pieces time and again.  Nonetheless, I was looking for SOMETHING.  That’s when I found these…

Two truly unique bracelets – I have seen both of them before, but never gave either more than a cursory glance.  When I picked up the first one, I pushed the tiny button that released the clasp.  I closed it around my wrist, this delicate tubular bangle made from 14 karat yellow gold featuring a pair of juxtaposed fans.  Then I brought it to my eye, my jeweler’s loupe at the ready.  Centered on the matte gold finish of each fan was a Japanese Crane in flight – an ancient symbol of good fortune and longevity.  Absolutely charming!  The finer points of this lovely Art Nouveau bangle – the details – make it worth every penny of it’s $1100 price. 

Then I picked up the second bracelet – this one a link-style.  When I moved the elegant little safety chain to the side and clasped the bracelet, that’s when I saw it!  Dangling from one side of the chain was a small gold heart, and on the other side, a miniature key. 

I didn’t need to know another single thing about the bracelet – I was enchanted by this… the key to someone’s heart.  For those who need to know more…  this beauty consists of eight links with a hand-engraved center.  Each section is a polished 18 karat yellow gold frame.  Inside the frames are alternating patterns of high-relief 22 karat yellow gold flowers and leaves.  Made in the 1950’s and designed for daily wear, subtle sophistication combines with whimsical detail to create a true gem.  Take it home today for just $3200.

The essence, the spirit of Joden is in the details.  When you see our signature black bag and the embossed gold ribbon on the package, you know there’s something incredible inside.  Check out our site at and then come to our showroom and experience the magic for yourself.
