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.
