Baubles, Bling and a Three Stone Ring

This beauty caught my eye instantly…  it checks ALOT of boxes for me.  I love the petite size of the ring, it has just the right amount of presence on the hand.  The flat-sided profile lends itself to stacking with another band or two, however, it definitely packs enough punch to stand on its own. 

Made entirely of platinum, it features classic styling from the mid-Edwardian period, circa 1910. Viewed from the edge, intricate filigree settings nestle a triple threat of gemstone bling. 

 

Those lovely curlicues encircle the tiny crown-like structure and lift it off the finger, allowing light to pass through.  A luscious red ruby sits center stage.  This old cut stone weighs approximately .65 carat and is flanked by a matched pair of scintillating European cut diamonds.  These two diamonds have a combined weight of .60 carat.  The shank of the ring comes together on the ends of this trio, creating a tight twist.  

Cascading down the shoulder are four Old Mine Cut diamonds that are bezel set within the outer edges of the ring.  Like peas in a pod, the combined weight of these four diamonds is .25 carat.  Just a slight wave of the fingers produces spectacular sparkle in this early 20th century charmer.  

At over one hundred years old, this ring is authentic and original in every way.  The overall condition of the piece is quite good, and would be an ideal non-traditional engagement ring or perhaps a bit of bling for the right hand.  The symbolism of a three-stone ring is legendary and is often referred to as a past, present and future ring.  Occasionally, this is taken one step further and the power of three is interpreted as one stone for friendship, one for love and the last for fidelity.  Bring a bit of meaning to your story with this Edwardian gem for just $1,850.00.

Pick of the Week – Volume 19

Joden Girl

Baubles and Bling with Unbelievable Pricing

This sweet little treat was highlighted in our holiday gift guide for 2019.  Made in a subtle three-stone style, it has all the earmarks of a quick-seller –

  • All aglow with the shine of 14 karat rose gold, this is a true beauty.
  • Delicate styling (including three tiny halos) makes this gem perfect for any hand.
  • A classic round brilliant diamond sits center stage, bringing the bling to this ring. 

I have to wonder…  why hasn’t it sold?  Perhaps you’re thinking it’s the color of the metal.  Just a couple of years ago, I might have agreed with you.  I was certain that rose gold was going to be a passing fancy, a trend.  There have only been a handful of times in jewelry history where this pink-hued metal reigned supreme.  Admittedly, not every customer who comes through the door is looking for it, however rose gold is still a very popular request here at Joden.  

Maybe your guess is that it’s the design.  Typically, I am not a halo girl – but there’s something about this ring.  It’s so charming!  Often halos seem to swallow up the center stone, detracting from it’s inherent beauty.  But in this case, those dainty diamond circles add just a touch of sparkle in all the right places – they enhance that .71 carat round brilliant diamond to perfection.

All of this has me thinking that the only possible reason that this ring hasn’t sold must be the price!  It’s been certified by the International Gemological Institute of America, declaring the retail replacement value to be $6,125.00.  

Let’s crunch the numbers –

  • International Gemological Institute of America Value:  $6,125.00
  • Original Joden Price:  $4,590.00
  • Pick of the Week Price:  $3,750.00

Hop on over to our website and check it out for yourself.  With the new unbelievable pricing, this enchantress won’t last long!

Pick of the Week – Volume 16

Joden Girl

Baubles and Bling with Unbelievable Pricing

The Pick of the Week is my favorite feature blog.  I adore the idea of making some of our most cherished items more affordable!  Who wouldn’t love that?  Without question, the diamond engagement rings have been the most popular pieces.  

This week, we’re focusing on a different price point…  an authentic, mint- condition Victorian ring.  It’s a tiny treasure!  Made from 9 karat yellow gold, with 18 karat gold gilding, this ring is perfection.  I love the architectural outline… with gentle curves and bold edges.  Distinctly divided into segments, this antique three stone ring is beautiful from every angle.

One rose cut diamond is set within an eight-pointed star in the center.  It’s flanked by a pair of old cut rubies that are also star-set.  This style was quite popular during the Victorian era, adding a bit of flair to each little gem.  A pair of triangles are carefully etched into each side of the shank.

Three distinct hallmarks are stamped inside the shank of this English ring.  It’s a wonderful example of fine antique jewelry.  Previously priced at $850.00, this piece is available now for just $675.00!
