Out Of The Blue

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling and Sparkly Things

I’m a blue girl…  every shade and hue.  It draws me in, I can get lost in a particularly appealing azure.  I can’t seem to resist.  There are a lot of gems that catch my eye:  Topaz, Lapis, Aquamarine, Tanzanite, Kyanite, and Zircon to name a few.  From the palest of pale to a deep dark navy – it’s an explosion of color.  Can you guess which blue beauty is my favorite?  Perhaps I’ve told you before, I am a sapphire girl.

The rich velvety tint of this 2.50 carat cushion cut stunner is bewitching.  In the trade, this tone is most often referred to as Ceylon (or Sri Lanka – the most prolific producer of these gems).  The sapphire is nestled within an 18 karat white gold modern sensation.  On my hand, it stretches from knuckle to knuckle making quite a statement.  Identical pairs of curlicues positioned at 12:00 and 6:00 o’clock face each other.  The design spirals out from there, completely surrounding the center stone. 

 

Every whorl and flourish has been prong set with diamonds, 158 round brilliant sparklers in all totaling .75 carats.  This ring is absolutely dazzling and yet totally wearable.  It’s low profile, the center sits nearly flush with the surface of the mounting.  The two featured stones, sapphire and diamond, are among the most durable gems and are ideal for a daily diversion.  If you’re a sapphire girl like me and you need a little distraction from mundane day to day life, this is your lucky day.  Make today extraordinary for just $7,850.

Joe’s Special Box – Volume 102

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and A Collector’s Things

“Bubble gum, bubble gum in a dish!  How many  pieces do you wish?”  Did you chant those words?  I know I did!  As for the question:  How many pieces do I wish?  Today, the answer is just one…  this ring.  

Sometimes, jewelry should just be fun and bring a smile to your face when you wear it.  This is that type of ring.  It’s vibrant and variegated featuring twenty-five multicolored round sapphires.  With shades of pink, yellow, green, blue, and purple, it evokes joy (and really does remind me of bubble gum)! 

The ring is wide, with three rows of stones.  Each one is nestled deep within a cup-style setting.  Yellow gold, the color of sunshine, brings additional  warmth to the sapphires, making them glow with a rainbow of color.  No other metal would have had the same effect – I love it!

This playful piece is an unusual find in Joe’s Special Box, probably another reason why it caught my eye.  In a sea of vintage gems, this modern marvel stands alone.  Priced at $1500, this splash of color is a little bit of happiness on an otherwise dreary day.

Joe’s Special Box – Volume 81

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and A Collector’s Things

While every girl in America is going crazy for pumpkin spice everything – I am relishing the very last day of September.  It’s the final day for a sapphire birthstone…  but isn’t EVERY day a good day for this luscious blue gem?  I say yes!  These two beauties that I pulled from Joe’s Special Box are my current favorites.  

I am dying over the continuous line that creates this two stone infinity ring!  Classic Edwardian elegance brings a platinum top to this 18 karat yellow gold ring, perfectly showcasing one Old Mine Cut diamond and one rich blue sapphire.  Thirty-five rose cut diamonds encircle the two stones in perfect symmetry.  It’s endless beauty for just $2,450.00. 

This Lady Diana style ring is the gem of my dreams.  Two full carats of glittering Old Mine Cut diamonds surround a vibrant midnight blue sapphire.  The traditional vibe of this gem is giving me all the feels.  Wear it on your left hand as an avant-garde engagement ring or rock it on the right hand for every day bling.  Priced right at $4,750.00, the choice is yours.

Come to Joden where the choices are only limited by your imagination.
