Baubles, Bling, and Textured Things

Eleven more sleeps til my vacation (not that I’m counting)… seven full days of white sand and blue water.  The sight, sound, and smell of the ocean restores my soul.  I cannot wait to sit on the beach with the sun kissing my skin.  Let’s face it, there has been little to no sun in Pennsylvania so far this summer.   I’m keeping my fingers crossed (maybe even my toes) and praying that I can bring the sun home with me…

I have worn pants every single day this month.  My cotton summer dresses don’t pair well with rain boots!  At Joden, we have the perfect accessories for everything in your wardrobe.  Check out these modern rosy gold pieces – I am loving the fresh feel of them.  And those textured finishes!  Yes, girl!  First, we have this signature double ring pendant featuring a hand-hammered patina.  Nine bright white diamonds wink from the bail of this beauty, adding an element of sparkle to this versatile necklace.  It hangs from an 18″ cable chain and sells for just $790.

If you ever needed statement earrings, here they are.  Dual finishes complement each other to perfection in these bold diamond shaped gems.  I can’t decide if I prefer the hand-hammered or the soft satin surface.  Lucky for me, both techniques were used to create these dangling earrings.  Available for $1280, these will quickly become your go-to choice.

Last, but definitely not least is this little 14 karat rose gold number.  Sitting center stage in east/west fashion is a brilliant oval morganite.  The pale peachy-pink stone is bezel set in this understated modern design.  A light hammered finish completes the look for just $500.  

While any of these pieces can be worn alone, I prefer the combination of all three.  Stack the necklaces for the perfect layered look then add those earrings for extra bling.  As always…

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.
