Stocking Stuffer Goodness

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and Vintage Rings

I love Christmas morning.  The frenzy of sorting through the mound of gifts as my children search for their name on the colorful tags…  the torn paper flies around the family room as the boys rip into each present.  Once they have opened the last gift, and they’re checking out all the goodies, a light bulb goes off…  Stockings! 

I love stockings; they have always been my favorite part of Christmas morning.  My mom tucked special little trinkets into ours, and I strive every year to do the same.  There are the necessities – a new toothbrush, Milk Duds, beef jerky, and socks.  Candy canes filled with Reese’s cups and M-n-M’s stick out of the top.  And (hopefully) there will be two or three little surprises, something really cool nestled into the toe of each stocking.

You know what would fit perfectly into that spot?  A Joden box!  It should, of course, be filled with one of these charming vintage rings!

The appeal of each ring is undeniable…  from the tiny squares of turquoise to the rose cut diamond trim.  Each one is a Christmas dream come true. 

Pricing begins at $600.00.  These are just a sample of the unbelievable selection available every day at Joden Jewelers.  This holiday season, let our experts help you find the perfect gift for every name on your list.

Joe’s Special Box – Volume 32

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and A Collector’s Things

I love seeing this.  A tray of new purchases on the corner of Joe’s desk.  It’s a treasure hunt for gold, diamonds, and gemstones.  I never know what I’ll find…  but there’s always something that catches my eye.  

And there it is… a pair of delicate antique bands – one featuring a row of collet-set round opals and the other is a line of bright green cabochon stones.  These little cuties are perfect for stacking.  That thought sent me straight to Joe’s Special Box.  I remembered another gem hiding there.  

Get an eyeful of this sweet Victorian beauty.  A vintage halo of fourteen rose-cut diamonds surround a cabochon opal center.  Like most rings from the late 1800’s, the gold setting has a slight rosy hue, it’s the perfect complement to the flashes of green and pink in the opal.  I love the primitive faceting of a rose cut diamond…  like snowflakes, no two are alike.  Opal (the October birthstone) displays a phenomenon of nature commonly referred to as “play of color”.  As you move the stone around, flashes of light and color come back to the eye – it’s mesmerizing.  

This ring is in Joe’s Special Box and is available now for $975.00.  As for the pair of bands, they’re destined for restoration in our shop.  Our in-house facility boasts state-of-the-art tools and equipment as well as two master benchman.  Like all new acquisitions, these bands will be carefully evaluated and repaired before making their way to our showroom, or perhaps even into Joe’s Special Box.

Voluptuous Victorian

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and Curvaceous Things

Did you hear that?  Sounded like a long, slow whistle…  and no wonder.  This beauty has curves in all the right places.  Add in a perfect teardrop bottom, and it’s simply irresistible!  

Made in classic Victorian style with silver layered over buttery yellow gold, this amethyst piece is pulling double duty – it’s a pendant AND a pin.  I love multipurpose jewels!  

The scroll work starts at the top with a little curlicue, then slopes down and flairs out with a secondary flourish in the background.  Each one of these curves features an oxidized silver top that is artfully set with tiny rose cut diamonds.  Two pear-shaped amethysts deliver a glorious splash of color to the center section, while the addition of four small round pearls bring it all together in a swirl of Victorian vim!  Modestly priced at $2,610 – this will quickly become your statement piece.  

Go to our site and look, them come to Joden and touch.
