Baubles, Bling and the Latest Things

Last week we featured an absolutely stellar Art Deco inspired ring from modern designer SophiaD.  Today, we’re wow-ing you with an authentic original beauty.  Elongated and elegant, this navette-shaped ring is positively dripping with 1920’s appeal.  

Platinum from top to bottom, the outline of this ring resembles a pair of triangles facing opposite directions.  At the center of each one is a bright blue imitation sapphire.  The silhouette of these gems is a five-sided diamond shape.  Cutting techniques advanced during the 1920’s giving way to many new and innovative configurations like these.

Nestled between the two blue stones is a round diamond in a square setting. Six single cut diamonds mark each corner of the two triangles.  These seven diamonds have a combined weight of approximately .30 carat.  Further complementing the 1920’s look are trademark details that include pierced openwork, milgrain beaded edges and deeply etched patterns of engraving.  Measuring just under an inch from end to end, this ring is ideally sized and easy to wear. 

A perfect choice, this ring can be fitted to nearly any finger and is the latest addition to our estate department.  It’s on our site for just $1,065.00 – and won’t last long with a price like that.  If you’ve always wanted an authentic Art Deco, this one is simply too good to pass up.  Hop on over to www.joden.com and check it out for yourself.

Baubles, Bling and A Navette Ring

Navette-shaped rings have been beloved since the Victorian era.  The elongated marquise outline runs parallel to the finger with elegant appeal.  This pointed oval complements every hand and can be worn on any finger from the pointer to the pinky.  

The origin of the word navette is French and dates to the early 1900’s; it translates to “little ship”.  The title is accurate as this favored style does indeed mimic the form of a small water vessel.  These rings are always longer than they are wide with pointed ends and curved sides.  Often, they can reach from knuckle to knuckle.  This particular gem measures about an inch from top to bottom and is made from a rosy 14 karat gold.  

There are twenty six Old Mine Cut diamonds that create the overall shape of the piece.  Each of these sparkling beauties is held in place by claw-shaped prongs.  Old Mine Cut diamonds were the most popular and common cut during the 18th and 19th centuries.  This cut offers a squarish form with a small table, large culet and a high crown.  Here, these twenty-six stones have a combined total weight of 1.50 carats that glitter in the light and provide a bright and stunning contrast to the deep tone of the center stone.  An oval-cushion shaped natural ruby is seated center stage.  Nestled among the diamonds, this gem is rich and bold.  Presenting in the color of a purplish red claret, the ruby weighs approximately 1.40 carats.  It fills the center of the ring to perfection.

Representing everything that a classic navette ring should be, this beauty is large and colorful with a cluster of gemstones.  It’s a true statement piece that will quickly become your signature ring.  With a true vintage vibe that evokes the past, this ring was made near the end of the Victorian era, Circa 1890.   It’s available for just $4,850.00 – a real steal.  If you’ve been wanting to get into shape – perhaps navette is the way to go.

Tickle Your Filigree Fancy

Baubles, Bling and  Filigree Things

Trends come and go in the jewelry world.  Some of them are gone before we have a chance to enjoy them and others become instant classics – like these navette rings.  These elongated filigree rings are highly sought after and VERY desirable.  Every time we post a photo of one of these ethereal beauties on social media, it blows up. 

These two gems are both from the Art Deco era (1915-1935), one a bit earlier than the other.  Both rings are made from 18 karat white gold and both feature intricate filigree patterns.  

Five Old European Cut diamonds create a vertical line down the center of the ring with one additional stone on each side.  These seven diamonds have a combined weight of 1.00 carat.  These gems glitter in the center of a very architectural, classic Art Deco setting.  Milgrain beaded lines create a gridwork in the background, while the outer edges are lined with complex patterns of engraving.  This engraving is still crisp and in excellent condition.  Made in the 1920’s, this dazzling beauty is moderately priced at $2,200.00.

Then, we have this little charmer…  With an hourglass shape, this ring is oh-so-feminine.  Three bright white diamonds are fitted to the middle of the ring.  They draw the eye, creating a focal point.  Engraved into the top of each shoulder is a flower, complete with stem and leaves.  The background pattern of this antique is a woven wirework of loops and swirls.  Priced at $1,340 – this dainty ring won’t last long.  

If you’ve been pining for a navette ring – these are just two of the unique choices that we have available at Joden.  With distinct details, each one presents an exclusive look that is entirely you.  This year, treat yourself to something special – an heirloom ring that will continue to be handed down in your family for generations yet to come.
