Precious Medal

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and Platinum Rings

A medal is a small artistic object – a thin disc (usually made of metal) carrying a design – commemorating a significant event or achievement.  What better example of this is there than a wedding band?  Not only does this prized possession qualify as a medal, but it’s also a promise that two are becoming one; not just any two – you two!  Your story is unique.  Your ring should be, too.

From vintage to modern, this striking trio shares a common element that takes them to the next level…  they are all made from platinum, arguably the king of metals.  Platinum is beautiful, refined, and versatile with an inner strength – much like a woman.  The benefits of this precious metal far exceed aesthetics…  it’s a naturally occurring white element that requires little maintenance.  It’s 95% pure, making it hypoallergenic.  Platinum is extremely dense (60% heavier than gold), very durable, and quite rare.  Its use enhances the allure of these bands…

This piece is modern with an Edwardian inspired design.  The four-petaled blossoms encircle the entire ring, while only the top portion is diamond accented.  There are twenty-four fully faceted diamonds set into the vine with a combined total weight of .25 carats.  Priced at $2,500 – this beauty is certain to become an heirloom of tomorrow.

 

Four Old European Cut diamonds create sparkling centers for the intricately carved flowers in this vintage band.  The stems, leaves, and florets wrap artfully around the finger, with no beginning and no end.  Make this eternal enchantress yours for just $1700.

This final band has a hidden secret…  the original engraving is still inside!  Check out the close-up photo.  Dated 1936, this Art Deco piece offers quiet elegance.  There are twenty single-cut diamonds carefully set in two parallel lines across the top center of the ring.  These diamonds have a combined weight of .35 carats and are further accented by a delicate beaded edge.  It’s priced right at just $1400.

Like platinum, the beauty of these bands will never fade or tarnish – it’s everlasting.  And like your commitment, it only grows stronger with each scratch, creating a rich patina that will shine forevermore.

Love Your Curve?

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and Wedding Rings

This coming August will mark 17 years of marriage for my husband and I.  When we got engaged, he gave me an absolutely charming platinum diamond ring from the 1920’s.  It features a round diamond center flanked by curved shoulders set with tiny single cut diamonds…  all accented by a delicate milgrain edge.  I loved it then, I love it still.

When I started looking for a wedding band, I didn’t know exactly what I wanted…  however, I knew what I didn’t want.  I didn’t want a curved or contoured band.  I knew there would be times when I wanted to wear my wedding band by itself and I also knew that a gap or space between my engagement ring and wedding band wouldn’t bother me.  Vintage wedding bands were then and still are more difficult to find, and they often are not in wearable condition.  Ultimately, I decided on a custom made platinum and 18 karat yellow gold daisy band.  It’s a new ring with vintage flair – the perfect pairing for my engagement ring.  Here they are…

At Joden, we stock hundreds of diamond engagement rings – from delicate Edwardian beauties to sleek modern solitaires.  We need a broad selection of wedding bands to compliment each of these rings.  Some ladies want a classic plain gold band while others are intrigued by the idea of a wedding band that dates back to the 1800’s.  We have them all…  curved bands, diamond bands, wide ones and narrow ones, high polish and heavily engraved.  Today, I want to share some of our vintage pieces.

This is a trio of three distinct platinum diamond bands.  Each of them is unique in design – from a simple row of nine channel set diamonds to a sophisticated eternity band set with diagonal rows of both baguette and round diamonds.  Pricing begins at $1400.

    

This array of beautifully carved and high polish bands is irresistible.  With engraving like this, who needs diamonds?  Two tone or all gold – the choices are dazzling.  Each of these bands is an authentic vintage ring dating back 75 years or more.  Pricing begins at just $300.00. 

Whether you’re searching for the ideal wedding band or an uncommon right hand ring, at Joden, the choices are endless.  Go to our site and look, then come to us and touch.

Put A Ring On It

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and Engagement Rings

There is no better gift for Christmas than a shiny, sparkling diamond engagement ring.  Christmas is a magical holiday all on it’s own – combine that with the promise of a lifetime and a stunning ring – it’s a match made in heaven!

At Joden, we have the perfect engagement ring for everyone.  Modern, vintage, classic, and non-traditional.  Diamonds in every shape and size.  Gold in every color – white, yellow, and rose.  Platinum, too!  The possibilities are as endless as the commitment it represents. 

    

The ring on the left is a platinum Art Deco ring from the 1920’s.  Six navette shapes provide just enough detail to highlight the 1.25 carat center stone.  At nearly 100 years old, this ring is the epitomy of classic.  It is available on our website now for only $8900.

The ring on the right is a Mid Century beauty.  The transitional modern cut center stone weighs in at .75 carats and is flanked by eight single cut diamonds.  This ring also has a hint of engraving on the shoulders.  When you combine each of these elements with great value (priced at just $4500!), it’s a deal too good to resist.

If you’re looking for a crisp new ring, but love all the details of an Art Deco piece, this is the one for you.  You won’t be able to stop staring at this 1.00 carat center diamond.  Graded as a “D” color, it is among the rarest in the world.  This 18 karat white gold ring also features eight custom cut natural blue sapphires, six fully faceted round diamonds, filigree wirework, and intricate engraving.  This showstopper is available now on our website for $11,050.

Take some of that Christmas magic and make it your own with a ring from Joden Jewelers.

We have two more days of holiday hours.  Our showroom is open today and tomorrow from 9am-8pm with select hours on Christmas Eve.  As always, our website is available 24/7 with free overnight shipping to ensure holiday delivery.
