Pick of the Week – Volume Eight

Baubles and Bling with Unbelievable Pricing

One short decade…  1901-1910.  The importance of the Edwardian Era far outreached those brief years.  With roots in the Victorian period and wings into what would become Art Deco, Edwardian jewelry was very influential.  Marked by a lacy and light appearance, the pieces from this time remain some of the most desirable antique gems.  

A couple of months ago (when Pick of the Week was born) we shared a striking photo that had our followers going crazy for one particular ring…

This now iconic picture showcased three beauties that were destined to become features.  Two of them have come and gone with little fanfare – but one remains.  Many of you inquired about the ring in the lavender velvet box…  what size is that center diamond?  What metal is it made from?  And, of course, how much is it?  

There was just one tiny glitch…  it wasn’t an old favorite, but rather a new arrival.  This photo was snapped the very day we got that infamous ring.  And so, it was against the grain of everything we wanted the Pick of the Week to be.  This new blog was created to shine a spotlight on hidden gems in the Joden inventory; draw attention to pieces that we’ve had on our site for a longer period of time.  

Finally, the day you’ve been waiting for is here!  Made at the turn of the twentieth century from a classic combination of rosy yellow gold with a platinum top, this ring is absolutely divine.  A delicate picture-frame of fine wires showcases a sunburst of triangular diamond accents.  Each one is bead and bright cut set with a singular Old European Cut diamond.  Together, they point to that glorious center stone – a 1.06 carat Old Euro.  This gem dazzles from every angle and is the true star of the show.  

Impeccable craftsmanship combines with unique style in spectacular fashion.  This ring slides over the knuckle and settles oh-so comfortably at the base of the finger. Classic low profile design and a bezel set center diamond single this beauty out as suitable for daily wear.  And although this ring is still a new arrival, we are giving it the Pick of the Week special pricing.  Originally on our site for $5,950 – we now have it available for just $4,950!  

Don’t hesitate for one single second!  Go to our site and look, then come to Joden and touch.

Pick of the Week – Volume Seven

Joden Girl

Baubles and Bling with Unbelievable Pricing

I am super excited that the Pick of the Week has been so popular!  You guys have really responded to our latest venture, motivating us to keep it going.  If you have a favorite Joden piece that’s been on your wish list, let us know…  perhaps it could be the next Pick of the Week.

This week, Dana and I chose a classic antique ring with romantic appeal.  Two stone rings surged in popularity when Napoleon Bonaparte presented Josephine with one in 1796.  The significance is straight-forward and simple…  one stone for me and one stone for you – earning it the title “moi et toi”.  Our ring is a lovely yellow gold beauty set with a pair of cabochon opals.  These gems flash with sparks of green, blue, orange and red – a kaleidoscope of bold color.  Nestled between the opals are a graduated trio of diamonds – these stones have a combined weigh of .15 carat, another layer of sparkle for this Victorian beauty.

The setting is made from 10 karat gold, and acts as a subtle yet vital supporting cast for those opals, the true stars of this show.  Twenty claw-like prongs extend from the shank of the ring, holding all the stones perfectly in place.  We’ve often talked about three-stone rings – the symmetry of that style has a broad-based appeal.  A two-stone ring is something a bit different, often appealing to those with an eye for sophisticated elegance.  Originally priced at $1,800.00 – this week we are offering this opalescent gem for just $1,425.00!  Make it yours today.

Pick of the Week – Volume Six

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!
