Glorious Green

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling and Colorful Things

Joden Jewelers will celebrate 54 years of business next month.  For most of those years, we have been a purveyor of antique, estate and modern jewelry.  When I started working at the store in 1995, there was just one case of vintage jewelry.  The case itself had a decidedly 1970’s vibe, with plastic woodgrain panels on the pedestal base and a five-foot octagonal glass top.  There were two tiny doors (maybe 12-inches total) that accessed the display space.  I had to kneel on the floor and reach my arm (all the way up to my shoulder) inside that door in a vain attempt to create an alluring arrangement of goods – a challenge indeed!

Today, the antique and estate jewelry encompasses more than half of the store, with just six cases dedicated to the modern era.  And yet, there is not a doubt in my mind that several estate jewels can be found mixed among those modern gems.  Vintage jewelry is not just woven into the fiber of Joden Jewelers…  it is, in fact, the lifeblood of the company.  Nearly every blog that I write pays homage to a pre-owned piece; I rarely choose something new.  

Today is one of those days…  I simply could not resist this ring.  I am completely captivated by that glorious green center stone.  Showcasing a diamond-pattern checker cut top, this rectangular tourmaline is true beauty.  The light dances across the stone, flashing hues of kelly, juniper, forest and even emerald green.  The depth of color has me picking my jaw up off the floor!  Weighing exactly 9.78 carats, this tourmaline is simply stunning.


Made from 18-karat white gold, the ring itself perfectly complements the center stone.  Made in a subtle halo-style, this ring boasts a pair of tapered baguette diamonds as well as eighty-eight round brilliant diamonds.  Combined, these diamonds offer .86 carat of scintillating sparkle.  My favorite detail of the mounting is hidden, it’s a little secret for the lucky gal who wears the ring…

I absolutely love that pair of inverse heart cut-outs – so sweet!  Tourmaline is available in every color of the rainbow.  Additionally, each hue can also be found in various degrees of saturation and tone.  There is an ideal shade of tourmaline for everyone.  If this one is perfect for you, check it out on our site where it’s available for just $2,850.00.

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling and Tempting Things

It beckons to me.  Joden Jewelers is fraught with temptation: brimming with antique jewelry – rings for each finger, bracelets, pendants, pearls – more pins than I can count.  I am surrounded by vintage jewels every day.  Victorian, Art Deco, Retro, and Modern; I love it all.  One-of-a-kind treasures that are hand selected for this singular store.  There is only one Joden, and it is known for beauty.

For over forty-six years, Joe Muraski has bet on beautiful jewelry.  Joden is internationally recognized as a leading source for the world’s finest antique, estate, and modern jewelry.  From the enameled purple pansy to the renowned Art Deco ring (both pictured above), the selection is both eclectic and enticing.

At Joden, cultivating customers is our ultimate goal.  We are story-tellers…  spinning a tale of history, artistry, and romance.  Joy and a sense of pride are created each time an exquisite piece of jewelry is paired with the perfect recipient.  Vast product knowledge, skill, and finesse are necessary tools of our trade.  We embrace the lavish inventory, uncovering memoirs of the past and creating heirlooms of the future.

I have been lucky enough to work at Joden Jewelers for over twelve years.  Early on, I discovered that my job at Joden was actually a lifelong career.  My voracious appetite for the valuable education offered here allowed me to pursue my passion and find my voice.  It has taken me from apprentice to master and now from student to teacher.  I am embarking on a journey, and invite you to join me.  I will be doing the writing, but the jewelry will speak for itself.  Welcome to Joden Girl.
