Hooray for the Red, White, and Blue

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and Patriotic Rings

I love the Fourth of July, especially in small communities like mine.  The festivities start early and continue well into the night…  parades, picnics and of course, fireworks.  Everywhere you look – it’s flags, banners, balloons, and flowers – all done in red, white, and blue.  Our patriotic pride shines brighter on that day than any other. 

For each of us, Old Glory represents freedom; but do you know what her colors stand for?  The white stripes signify innocence and purity, the red stripes are for hardiness and valor while the blue symbolizes vigilance, perseverance, and justice. 

 

What better way to showcase your patriotic spirit than with a stack of ruby, diamond, and sapphire bands?  At Joden, the selection of bands is endless – we have modern classics and vintage designs.  Every one has its own appeal; hand engraving, milgrain bezels, sparkling diamonds, and bright splashes of color. 

   

One of these beauties can be the crown jewel at the top of a band stack or worn alone for a more subtle allure.  This sapphire is a favorite of mine – the trio of diamonds bands that form the shank of the ring give a unique spin to the classic three-stone look of the center section.  It’s available on our site for just over $4000.  The diamond ring with the ruby halo is new to us, purchased at the recent Las Vegas Antique Jewelry and Watch Show.  It’s petite size would allow it to be worn on any finger, even a pinky.  Priced right at $1350, it’s available on our site now. 

The beauty of these rings, like the beauty of our flag, will last a lifetime… stars and stripes forever.

High Maintenance?

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and Pristine Rings

A wedding band is the most significant piece of jewelry you will ever wear.  Most people are incredibly attached to their band; some never take it off.  Until they have to…  usually for sizing or repair.  I have had customers employ some bizarre tactics to get a too-small ring off, everything from slathering their finger with saliva to squirting some Windex on the ring to help it slide over the knuckle.  Occasionally, a ring is SO tight that we actually have to cut it off.  Imagine a tiny saw-blade zipping through these beautiful scrolls and swirls.  Click on the links for more details!

Wedding bands have evolved over the years – plain gold bands are no longer the norm.  Bands are often bedazzled with diamonds or gemstones like sapphires, rubies, and emeralds.  Sometimes they feature design techniques like a beaded milgrain edge, open filigree work, or a brushed satin finish, like each of these…

While these rings are crafted with care and designed for daily wear, they still need regular check-ups.  At Joden, we always recommend routine maintenance…  twice a year is a good rule of thumb.  Our team includes two master craftsman with over 75 years of combined experience.  Their savvy skills will keep your jewelry looking like new, even if it’s over 100 years old. 

Come to Joden, where our expertise is your advantage.  Click on the photos to get all the details about the gorgeous bands shown here.  And don’t forget to subscribe to our newsletter and have Joden Girl delivered straight to your inbox.

The Power of Three

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and  Three Stone Rings

Call it lucky.  Maybe even magical.  There’s no denying that the number three is symbolic.  Many notions have been associated with the number…  everything from religious connotations to ancient superstition.  The ideas have even permeated the jewelry world.  Three stone rings have often been described as “Past, Present, and Future” pieces.  So, whether it’s the symbolism that draws you in or simply the intrinsic beauty, these rings are just too good to miss!

This stunning trio offers all the best elements of the early 1900’s – handcrafted design, expertly executed filigree work, and a perfectly placed pop of color.  Factor in the “three-stone” element, then ask yourself this…  “What’s not to love?”

Get an eyeful of this little enchantress!  Milgrain details bring delicate filigree edges to life with tiny hand-faceted beads that sparkle like diamonds.  To fashion that “three stone” style, the center diamond is flanked by a pair of French cut synthetic blue sapphires (Many people don’t know that synthetic stones were common during the Art Deco period!).  The burst of blue makes the ring even more enticing.  Available now for just $1100.00.

Soft white gold blends with the warmth of yellow gold to create this classic beauty.  The ring sparkles with a pair of European Cut diamonds and a synthetic ruby center.  Four leaf-life accents perform supporting roles, each one with a faceted diamond center.  Go to our site and check it out for yourself.

If you love vintage jewelry, but color isn’t your thing, then this third ring is the charm!  From the heart of the Art Deco period, you’ll love the graceful lines of this elegant ring.  Three Old European Cut diamonds set across the top give this piece that time-honored “three stone” appeal.  This ring is a perfect fit for just $900.00. 

On the count of three, come to Joden and make one of these rings yours!  And don’t forget to subscribe to Joden Girl to have it delivered straight to your inbox.  Just click on the newsletter link and sign-up now.
