Four Leaves

 Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling and Auspicious Things

If ever there were a time when we could use a little luck, this is it.  One in five thousand…  that’s the probability of finding a four-leaf clover.  It seems silly to spend hours searching for one of these fortuitous fronds when this stunning alternative is at the tips of your fingers.  

The center section of this delightful ring is designed in a beloved pattern – the quatrefoil.  Gaining mass popularity in recent years, it has been popping up in everything from tattoos to home decor.  The thing that you may not have known is that this equally proportioned configuration has had timeless appeal – it can be traced back thousands of years.  The counterpart to the trefoil, the quatrefoil is represented by four symmetrical circles with their edges slightly overlapping.  These circles are placed in the compass rose positions of North, South, East, and West.  Believed to be deeply rooted in the Christian faith, one interpretation is that it represents the four gospels of the New Testament: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.  Another simpler translation is much more literal…  quatrefoil means “four leaves”.  And as you know, four leaves are quite lucky!

Nothing beats the gleam of 18 karat gold, except perhaps antique 18 karat gold.  A hint of copper brings a rosy blush to the already rich color of this Victorian vision.  Crafted around 1875, this ring packs a subtle punch – quiet beauty with a bit of symbolic appeal.  There are fifteen Old European Cut diamonds nestled into the emblematic design…  they have a combined total of 1.50 carats.  These open-culet, cushion shaped gems glitter and shine with every turn of the hand.  The low-profile style makes this ring ideal for every day wear.  Boast this beauty on either hand, any finger will do.  Bring a little luck into your life for just $2,700.

We are open and excited to see you again!

The Power of Three

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and  Three Stone Rings

Call it lucky.  Maybe even magical.  There’s no denying that the number three is symbolic.  Many notions have been associated with the number…  everything from religious connotations to ancient superstition.  The ideas have even permeated the jewelry world.  Three stone rings have often been described as “Past, Present, and Future” pieces.  So, whether it’s the symbolism that draws you in or simply the intrinsic beauty, these rings are just too good to miss!


This stunning trio offers all the best elements of the early 1900’s – handcrafted design, expertly executed filigree work, and a perfectly placed pop of color.  Factor in the “three-stone” element, then ask yourself this…  “What’s not to love?”

Get an eyeful of this little enchantress!  Milgrain details bring delicate filigree edges to life with tiny hand-faceted beads that sparkle like diamonds.  To fashion that “three stone” style, the center diamond is flanked by a pair of French cut synthetic blue sapphires (Many people don’t know that synthetic stones were common during the Art Deco period!).  The burst of blue makes the ring even more enticing.  Available now for just $1100.00.

Soft white gold blends with the warmth of yellow gold to create this classic beauty.  The ring sparkles with a pair of European Cut diamonds and a synthetic ruby center.  Four leaf-life accents perform supporting roles, each one with a faceted diamond center.  Go to our site and check it out for yourself.

If you love vintage jewelry, but color isn’t your thing, then this third ring is the charm!  From the heart of the Art Deco period, you’ll love the graceful lines of this elegant ring.  Three Old European Cut diamonds set across the top give this piece that time-honored “three stone” appeal.  This ring is a perfect fit for just $900.00. 

On the count of three, come to Joden and make one of these rings yours!  And don’t forget to subscribe to Joden Girl to have it delivered straight to your inbox.  Just click on the newsletter link and sign-up now.

Elephants on Parade

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and Lucky Things

On January 20, 2017, the United States will inaugurate a new President – a Republican President.  The symbol of the Republican party has long been the elephant.  Thomas Nast published the following cartoon in Harper’s Weekly magazine in 1874, forever marking the elephant as the symbol for the political party.


These lovable pachyderms live in large family units, learning how to take care of each other from a young age.  They develop strong friendships that have been known to last a lifetime.


The bracelet shown above is a beautiful representation of Elephants on Parade.  Handmade in 18 karat yellow gold, featuring a row of eight elephants in both matte and high polish finish, this piece is as magnificent as the animal it personifies.  Each elephant is displayed with his trunk up – long believed to be a symbol of good luck.  It is hinged, making it easy to wear and weighs over 58 grams.  It’s solid construction makes it a great candidate for daily wear.

As we forge ahead, perhaps we can take heart in the symbolism of the elephant.  They embody strength and power, and are known for caring for their young, respecting their elderly and sick, and being strong in themselves…  all qualities that make excellent leaders.
