Joe’s Special Box – Volume 140

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and A Collector’s Things

Our store is located in the heart of a small town.  Founded in 1950, Joden is one of the oldest and most successful businesses in Grove City.  Our tiny town also boasts one of the best private Christian colleges in the Northern United States.  Each year, as the students begin to venture off campus and meander downtown, a few stop by to admire our engagement rings.

It has been rumored for years that a well-known slogan on campus is “Ring by Spring!”  This cheeky phrase has brought more than one young man through our door.  Faces flush with excitement, they’re intent on finding the perfect ring.  

My advice to anyone starting the journey of purchasing an engagement ring is always the same… 

  • Set a budget by evaluating your financial position.  Decide what your priority is between the size of the diamond, the quality of the diamond and the overall style of the ring.  
  • Save for the ring.
  • Find something you both will love that stays within your budget. 

This year, the national average spent on an engagement ring is $6000.  A mere 8% of shoppers will spend under $1000.  At Joden, we have dream rings for every budget.  This week’s choice is a sweet Victorian beauty made from 14-karat yellow gold.  The buttercup setting holds a .18 carat European cut diamond in the center.  Graded as an F-G in color and SI2 in clarity – this small stone shines.  

With softly scrolled and sculpted shoulders, this antique darling was, is, and will always be someone’s dream ring.  It’s listed on our site for just $500!  Affordable for any budget, it’s perfect as an engagement ring, a promise ring or simply a just-because ring.  Hop over to our site or check it out in the store, you too can have a ring by spring.

Pick of the Week – Volume Fifteen

Joden Girl

Baubles and Bling with Unbelievable Pricing

This sweet little number will steal your heart!  Bridging two periods, the Art Deco era and the cusp of Retro, this ring is absolute perfection from top to bottom.  

Handmade entirely from platinum, this vintage beauty is in excellent condition.  A .22 carat transitional cut diamond is nestled within a square setting.  Small but mighty, the diamond hits the charts at an H color, VS1-2 in clarity.  With grading like that, this gem glitters from every angle.  

Flanking the center stone are six single-cut diamonds.  These sparklers are hand-fitted in milgrain-edged settings that form an elegant triangle on each side.  The shank mimics a split design at the top of the shoulder and then comes together in a solid piece to form the band.  

The low-profile style makes this ring extremely wearable.  I can see so many purposes for this tiny treasure…  an engagement ring or a promise ring.  It stacks beautifully but is also great on its own.  Gift it for graduation, Christmas, or for no reason at all.  

Previously priced at $1500, this charmer is the Pick of the Week!  You might want to sit down for this – it’s now available for just $965.00!  Hop on over to our site and make it yours today.
