Joe’s Special Box – Volume 88

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and A Collector’s Things

Scarves have been a favored accessory for the last few years – they define form and function…  and, of course, fashion.  At Joden, we have a scarf unlike any you have ever seen.  Woven from thousands of miniature seed pearls, this elegant beauty brings a classic wardrobe staple to a whole new level.

The main body of the piece is approximately 42 inches long and just half an inch wide and has a decidedly delicate feel.  Each end features a multi-stranded tassel topped with a platinum cap.  Twelve tiny petals fan out from the cap’s center and are set with three rose cut diamonds each.  While it’s beauty is certainly captivating, it’s the versatility of this pearl scarf that has me mesmerized.

Recently, this piece was borrowed  by a long-time friend of Joe.  His daughter wore it in her wedding…  but perhaps not in the way you would think.  For the ceremony, she wrapped it around her neck allowing the tassels to flow down her back.  Later, at the reception, she looped the length of it through her chestnut colored tresses, with the tails nestled at the nape of her neck.  We have re-created the look here along with two additional styles.

   

There are so many manners in which to wear this piece… around your neck, around your wrist, threaded through your hair.  With more than twenty-five ways to sport a scarf, what would you do with this pearl beauty?  Priced at $5,500…  the possibilities are endless.

Joe’s Special Box – Volume 64

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and A Collector’s Things

Last week we shared several lavalier-style pendants on Instagram and Facebook (if you aren’t following us, you’re missing out!) and received rave reviews.  These delicate little gems were popularized by Duchesse de la Vallière, a mistress of King Louis XIV of France

This one is a recent acquisition that quickly made it’s way to Joe’s Special Box.  As you know, this box is a haven of super sweet (although not usually expensive) treasures.  Joe often squirrels these tiny trinkets away with the intention of giving them to his granddaughter.  

This particular one reminds me of a miniature chandelier.  An oval amethyst center is surrounded by a series of delicate seed pearls and fine gold wire work.  Three elongated freshwater pearls dangle freely from the left, right and center.  This diminutive beauty is in pristine condition and sells for just $300.

Authentic antique jewels like this one are highly collectible and quite popular.  Make this one yours today.

Fringe Benefits

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and Bohemian Things

For the last three months, I have worn nothing but soft cotton dresses, sandals, oversize hoop earrings and long necklaces.  It’s my go to summer outfit.  All I need to do is swap out the sandals for boots and add a pair of leggings, and the look transfers seamlessly to crisp Autumn weather.

These three necklaces are ideal choices – they work with dresses.  They work with chunky sweaters.  They just work!  They’re a little bit vintage and a little bit bohemian… 

 

I have shown you guys several different conversion pieces, and here are two more…  The large amethyst and seed pearl center section was probably once a brooch – but now is the star of this necklace.  By adding some faceted amethyst beads, engraved silver accents, and a pearl tassel – suddenly, it’s current and trendy with a little antique appeal.  Available now for $2700.  The second piece was created by combining a single Victorian chandelier earring with a modern seed pearl tassel.  It can be yours for just $1700.

I am in love with this authentic 1920’s woven piece!  From the checkerboard patterns to the tips of that fringe at the bottom – it amazes me how something that’s nearly 100 years old can be so contemporary and chic…  all yours for just $1750.00.

Take your wardrobe to the next level with a one of a kind piece from Joden.
