Joe’s Special Box – Volume 90

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and A Collector’s Things

Do you love giving and receiving jewelry but aren’t sure what to get?  For the next three weeks, we are sharing our Holiday Gift Guide.  Every piece will be listed on our site.  This week’s theme is rose gold – this caché of treasures is loaded with gift worthy items including these two beauties from Joe’s Special Box.   

This pair of Victorian rings have some striking similarities.  Each one was made near the end of the 19th century, approximately 1885.  They both feature artfully engraved patterns that are accented with tiny beaded edges and they both have diamond centers. 

Fourteen karat rosy gold has been hand sculpted into this beautifully feminine solitaire diamond ring.  Six claw-style prongs hold the .25 carat Old European Cut diamond in place.  Trumpet belled shoulders fade into a delicately etched shank.  This super sweet gem would make an ideal engagement ring – it’s available now for $675.00.

Also crafted from 14 karat rosy gold, this unisex band ring showcases textural patterns on the shoulders.  A botanical vibe combines with linear patterning to create a unique find.  Add in a tiny diamond center, and it’s absolute perfection.  Someone on your list would love this antique beauty for just $240.00

Tune in every Monday and Friday to see what else pops up on the Joden Gift Guide!  Who needs elves when you have us?

Victorian Vows

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and an Antique Diamond Ring

In the mid to late 1800’s, girls as young as twelve were permitted to marry, although most waited until they were at least 20.  That’s a bit younger than today.  Nowadays, the most common age for ladies to tie the knot is about 27.  In either case, I am certain that countless hours were spent dreaming of the perfect engagement ring.  

No matter the era, Victorian or modern – this stunner is sure to be the cause of many oohs and aahs.  Made from 14 karat gold polished to a soft rosy glow, the band is exquisitely simple.  Twelve individual prongs create a delicately scalloped buttercup setting that cradles the Old European Cut diamond center to perfection.  Weighing in at .80 carat, the diamond sparkles and shines from every angle.  

A gently sloped shoulder splits artfully into two halves, like a pair of leaves.  At the base of this botanical-inspired design is a tiny pair of spirals that flow seamlessly into the shank.  I am in love with the sheer thinness of the band…  it’s SO comfortable!  I love a good solitaire setting – it’s tough to beat the classic elegance of it.  It’s available now for just $2,890.00.

Queen Victoria’s love of diamonds began a trend that is now a tradition.  Start your own traditions with an engagement ring from Joden where their motto holds true:

You can go to a museum and look, or come to Joden and touch.
