Pick of the Week – Volume Ten

Joden Girl

Baubles and Bling with Unbelievable Pricing

There’s no question, I love flower designs and botanical patterns.  The appeal of tiny blossoms and leafy detail is simply irresistible.  I find myself being drawn to pieces with floral style.  And I’m not alone… our customers seem to gravitate toward these beauties as well.  

This Pick of the Week speaks to me on more than one level.  

The overall shape of the ring is everything.  Navette rings have been at the forefront of design since the Victorian era.  Pointed tips and equally contoured sides form a marquise silhouette.  The elegant and timeless appeal complements every hand and elongates the finger.  This platinum pick is no exception.

Ten diamond-set fronds form the outline, arching gracefully around the upper and lower portion of the ring.  These delicate leaves border a killer center stone.  Weighing in at 1.25 carats, this near colorless beauty really packs a punch.  Laboratory graded as an I-J, VS1-2, this round brilliant diamond is impossible to resist.  I love how the leaves envelop the center stone, accenting it to perfection without drawing attention away from it.  The balance achieved in this 1960’s design is genius.  

Let’s crunch the numbers:

  • Laboratory Appraisal Value: $14,405.00
  • Original Joden Price:  $11,475.00
  • Unbelievable Pick of the Week Price:  $8,850.00

Vintage flair with a modern twist…  that’s how I would describe this piece.  Wear it on your right hand or your left, it works on a ring finger just as easily as it does a index or middle finger.  You can’t go wrong.  Check it out on our site or visit us in person!

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!

Baubles, Bling, and Matching Things

What’s your style?  Do you like everything to match; should things work together but not be the same, or are you a wild card with no rules at all?  At Joden, we cater to each of you.  The other day, I had a chance encounter with a pair of pieces that will appeal to those who love twinning.

First, I discovered this little beauty…  a 14 karat white gold Art Deco gem.  Intricate filigree decorates the entire navette-shaped top and both shoulders of this ring.  The delicate wires form artful patterns that create a lacey look – it’s irresistible!  A pair of marquise cut green stones flank the center section – a tiny single-cut diamond. These elements combine to perfection, creating a classic 1920’s look that sells for just $350.00.

Just a few short minutes later, I uncovered this piece – a strikingly similar bracelet.  Also made from 14 karat white gold, this charmer is the epitome of elegance from end to end.  Each of the eighteen links features a sophisticated arrangement of thirteen parallel wires overlaid with arching lines and small leaves.  Mimicking the overall structure of the ring are a trio of navette shapes, one in the center and then two others.  Each of the them are set with three single-cut diamonds.  This bracelet also features four small marquise cut green stones, just like the ring.  Selling for $980, it’s a steal of a deal.

 

Shown together, they complement each other with ease.  Art Deco is undeniably the most popular period in vintage jewelry.  It can be challenging to find pieces in excellent condition that are also affordable.  To stumble upon a pair that match is nearly impossible – these won’t last long.  To make one or both of them yours, visit our Facebook store.
