There’s Just Something About that Name

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and Tiffany Things

In the jewelry world, few words evoke as strong a response as “Tiffany”.  It’s a name that is recognized by Baby Boomers, Generation X, and Millennials alike – it’s synonymous with classic style and nearly two hundred years of excellence.

This piece is one of the finest that I’ve ever seen.  Handcrafted in the early 1900’s from 18 karat gold and platinum, it positively screams quality.  From the tiny cabochon sapphire at the tip of the pendant to each polka-dotted link in the chain, it is absolute perfection. 


And it’s a watch!  The front and back of the watch are hand enameled in three different patterns with both sage green and blue gray colors using the guilloche technique.  A tiny wreath of rose cut diamonds further decorates the center section while the outer portion is rimmed with a rose cut diamond halo. 


The versatility of this piece is unmatched as the chain can be worn alone or even as a bracelet – just wrap it around and then clasp it!  It’s a pendant, a watch, a chain, AND a bracelet.  It’s jewelry genius, and it’s only available at Joden.

Ravishing Retro

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and Glamorous Things

At the end of the 1930’s, the strong geometric lines of Art Deco evolved into the vivid 3-dimentional curves that Retro is known for.  Jewelry of the 1940’s-1950’s makes a bold statement, like this striking bangle pictured above.

Wide ribbons of rose and yellow gold wrap around a large emerald cut aquamarine center stone.  Bright red cabochon rubies and round diamonds add another element of color and design to this already outstanding piece.  To further heighten the appeal, this bangle is able to be converted to a pendant as well as a brooch – fashion AND function!

WWII was a powerful influence on the time.  The use of platinum was restricted making multicolor gold a popular choice…  yellow, rose, and green gold reigned during the Retro period.  Women’s apparel bore a noticeable resemblance to military uniforms – the look was handsome rather than pretty with high collars and ultra masculine lines.  To soften the effect, ladies added jewelry like this…

These oversize pieces are as audacious as they are delicious.  This large bow brooch will catch anyone’s eye – it centers on a 65 carat citrine; Retro style at its finest.  Priced at $6500, it pairs perfectly with the angular lines of this statement ring.   The hourglass shape of the ring nearly spans from knuckle to knuckle – ideally worn on an index or middle finger.  Make it yours for $4500.00.

Much of the Retro period was dedicated to trying to regain the Old Hollywood glamour of the 1930’s.  Pieces like this flaunt that designers achieved and surpassed that goal.  Go to our site and look, then come to Joden and touch.

Driving Miss Daisy

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and Flowery Things

Currently my life is a re-enactment of “Driving Miss Daisy”.  I, of course, am the star of the show, Miss Daisy.  The role of Hoke (Miss Daisy’s driver) is being played by a myriad of different actors – basically anyone I can get to take me where I need to go.  I had surgery in December resulting in a cast on my left leg that prohibits me from driving.  So…  here I am.  Miss Daisy.

Earlier this week, I shared a daisy ring with you.  Daisies are my favorite flower.  They’re so happy!  I absolutely have to share this daisy pendant with you.

This pendant was included in my “Twelve Gifts of Christmas” series.  I am shocked that we still have this little gem.  It’s made by “Tiffany & Co”.  Constructed from 18 karat rose gold, it features five pear-shaped lavender amethysts and one tiny round diamond center.  Although it has been retired, it is still available at select Tiffany & Co. stores for $1550.00.  Not a bad price for a Tiffany piece. 


Two reasons why I can’t believe this piece is still here…  First, it’s adorable.  Rose gold is hugely popular and this is a perfect way to add a bit of it to your jewelry wardrobe.  Here’s the second reason.  Brace yourself.  We have this pendant priced at just $750.00!  Less than half of the original price at Tiffany & Co.  It’s a steal!  Make it yours today.

Go to our site and look, then come to Joden –  where everything is coming up daisies!
