Three’s Company

Baubles, Bling and Three Deco Rings

When it come to the number three there is much myth and mystique that surrounds this divine digit.  Most of the hype revolves around religious connotations…  the number is used 467 times in the Bible.  It also signifies the holy trinity, perfection and completeness.  I cannot think of any words more accurate to describe these rings than those….  

This late Art Deco stunner dates back to the 1930’s.  A series of eleven European cut diamonds decorate each and every angle of this square-shaped gem.  Handmade with 1.00 carat of sparkling bling, delicate beaded edges and fine pierced filigree – this platinum piece is tough to beat.  Priced at $3,500, you would be hard-pressed to find a ring in better condition that also offers so much visual appeal.  It’s a treat for the eyes, no doubt.

This botanical beauty is my favorite of the threesome.  If you’re a regular reader, you know that I am a sucker for jewels that rock that flower vibe.  So, you can imagine my excitement when I discovered this multi-colored blossom.  A .60 carat Old European Cut diamond winks from a scalloped halo of alternating French cut emeralds and sapphires.  It’s made entirely of platinum – adding physical strength and durability to its delicate appearance.  This ring sits flawlessly on my right hand, but would also make an unconventional engagement ring.  Moderately priced at $2,380, this ring will not disappoint.

Closing out the grouping is this little sparkler.  Made from a combination of platinum and 18 karat white gold, this ring speaks softly with quiet beauty.  Lightly engraved patterns on the shoulders pair with French and single cut diamonds to create a superb setting for the singular stripe of blue sapphires filing down the center of the ring.  Priced at $1,650 – this ring may not knock your socks off at first glance, but upon closer inspection…  the charm of the subtle details will have you falling in love a little more every day.  

At Joden, this trio is just the beginning.  The eclectic and extensive inventory can only be outdone by the outstanding assistance and knowledge of our staff.  We pride ourselves on providing unmatched customer service to every client we meet. Check us out for yourself, you won’t be disappointed.

Joe’s Special Box – Volume 91

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and A Collector’s Things

This week’s edition of Joe’s Special Box is a true SHOWSTOPPER!  A beauty like this comes along once in a lifetime and is too good to miss.  Joe described it as one of the finest Art Deco rings we have ever had.  Constructed entirely of platinum and completely handmade – take in every single detail. 

One fine Old European cut diamond is half-bezel set in the center – weighing .95 carats with a color grade of F-G, and a clarity grade of VVS2-VS1, this gem is dynamite!  It glitters from every angle.  At the northern and southern tips of the ring are a pair of deep scallops, each one set with three French cut natural blue sapphires.  Twenty-six additional mixed cut diamonds are set in the shoulders and shank of the ring.  A series of miniature platinum beads add dimension to this vintage beauty.  I love the engraved pattern on the edge – a repeating design of four-petaled flowers.  Two kite-shaped sapphires set into the top of the ring finish the look to perfection.  

This ring has a certificate from the International Gemological Institute of America, appraising it for $12,050.00.  We are offering it for just $9,250.00!  If you’re looking for a beautifully unique engagement ring, the search is over.  Come to Joden Jewelers and take this ring from Joe’s Special Box home today!

Victorian Vows

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and an Antique Diamond Ring

In the mid to late 1800’s, girls as young as twelve were permitted to marry, although most waited until they were at least 20.  That’s a bit younger than today.  Nowadays, the most common age for ladies to tie the knot is about 27.  In either case, I am certain that countless hours were spent dreaming of the perfect engagement ring.  

No matter the era, Victorian or modern – this stunner is sure to be the cause of many oohs and aahs.  Made from 14 karat gold polished to a soft rosy glow, the band is exquisitely simple.  Twelve individual prongs create a delicately scalloped buttercup setting that cradles the Old European Cut diamond center to perfection.  Weighing in at .80 carat, the diamond sparkles and shines from every angle.  

A gently sloped shoulder splits artfully into two halves, like a pair of leaves.  At the base of this botanical-inspired design is a tiny pair of spirals that flow seamlessly into the shank.  I am in love with the sheer thinness of the band…  it’s SO comfortable!  I love a good solitaire setting – it’s tough to beat the classic elegance of it.  It’s available now for just $2,890.00.

Queen Victoria’s love of diamonds began a trend that is now a tradition.  Start your own traditions with an engagement ring from Joden where their motto holds true:

You can go to a museum and look, or come to Joden and touch.
