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.

Me, too.

Baubles, Bling, and Right Hand Rings

Simply put, a right hand ring is any ring worn on your right hand…  but the symbolism can be so much more.  There have been many slogans associated with right hand rings, two of the most memorable ones include “Me, not we” and “Raise your Right Hand.”  Both statements honor strong, independent, and successful women.  I consider myself to be all of those things. 

The thing I am most proud of  is my family.  Every day  I am a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, and an aunt.  I am also an employee, a co-worker, and a friend…  the list goes on.  In the hustle and bustle of every day life, it’s easy to forget who I am outside of these other identities.  Often times, your own needs are last on the list.   A right hand ring is a constant reminder.  It doesn’t say “Me, first,” but rather “Me, too.”

This photo features three Victorian rings, any of which would make a perfect right hand ring.  Set with opals, seed pearls, and vintage cut diamonds – these rings are all moderately priced under $500.00. 

These two rings are available on our site.  The first ring, constructed of 14 karat yellow gold, contains seven diamonds that weigh .25 carats and sells for $675.00.  The second piece contains a striking pair of fiery opals cut in cabochon style.  These two stones are further accented by three center diamonds.  It can be yours for just $1800.00. 

Check out these beauties and many others in our showroom at Joden Jewelers.  Find a right hand ring that speaks to you, and about you.  Find a ring that says “Me, too.”
