Baubles, Bling and Throwback Things

At Joden, we have a lot of jewelry… like staggering, phenomenally large, and sometimes overwhelming quantities of baubles and bling.  While that is certainly a bonus, it comes with a drawback or two.  With thousands of pieces in our inventory, it’s easy to become immune to the individual beauty of each gem and jewel.  Add in nearly twenty years of personal experience in the jewelry field – and you can begin to imagine just how much jewelry I have seen.  

Guests at Joden are always mentioning how hard it must be for us to work with so much fabulous and oh-so-tempting jewelry.  Do they often wonder if we ever manage to take home a paycheck?!?!  The answer to that question is yes, of course…  although they might be slightly diminished due to a particularly alluring piece!  ♥  

With such bounty at our fingertips, Dana and I are constantly on the lookout for the next hot item to share with all of you.  Some jewels are ideal for a quick Instagram post while others are more suited to the blog, like this beauty.  The first time I saw it, I pulled it out of the bag.  After slowly turning it over in my hand, I slid off my own ring stack to slip this on.  I was enamored.

Made in the 1940’s, this ring speaks with quiet elegance.  Like most things from the Retro period, it features a two-tone style.  14 karat yellow gold with just a whisper of a rosy glow is perfectly complemented by cool platinum trim.  The center stone, a .65 carat European cut diamond shimmers within a classic square setting.  It’s a real gem…  H in color and SI2 in clarity.  Four single-cut diamonds are nestled into the shoulders, two on each side of the center.  Adding a bit of subtle charm are four delicately engraved leaves.  This is not a ring that knocks you over the head but rather sings softly to your heart.  It’s timeless.

If you’re looking for an engagement ring that has stood the test of time, look no more.  Originally priced at $3,320 – this ring has just been price reduced to $2,380!  Call us for additional details on this steal of a deal!

Pick of the Week – Volume 29

Joden Girl

Baubles and Bling with Unbelievable Pricing

When it comes to engagement rings, it isn’t just about the center stone.  Although, the diamond is the star of the show – I am a sucker for unique details.  The small elements that make a ring extraordinary and oh-so special.  At Joden, we hand select every ring in our engagement case – from vintage to modern, each one has a secret to reveal. 

This contemporary classic is no exception.  Shown here from the top and the side, a 1.14 carat round brilliant diamond dazzles from within a row of smaller diamonds; each one set with “bead and bright” technique.  Very pretty, but not unusual….  in fact, quite traditional so far, right?  

One small turn, and the secret is revealed.  The center diamond is set with four 14 karat yellow gold prongs.  This may seem like a tiny detail, but it’s actually an integral part of what makes this ring truly shine.  Weighing more than one carat, this diamond is slightly tinted…  the actual color grade is L-M.  The yellow gold prongs brighten the light golden tone of the center stone.  Additionally, the bridge work of the gallery is also done in 14 karat yellow gold.  This uncommon element is a direct link to the prong work, making the bi-color cathedral setting complete.

 

Now, peep my favorite part…  two bezel-set little diamonds showcased on the outer edges of the ring.  With a total weight of just .02 carat, this is definitely a very small and yet important element. 

Priced at $7,250.00, this beauty has been available on www.joden.com for awhile.  Today, as our Pick of the Week, we are offering it for the discounted price of $5,800!  Personally, I think shopping online for fine jewelry is challenging.  It’s such a personal experience – needing to be seen and touched.  At Joden, we want to make it simple and completely risk free!  We offer a five day return policy on all purchases.  So – don’t hesitate.  Press that buy button!

Pick of the Week – Volume Eight

Joden Girl

Baubles and Bling with Unbelievable Pricing

One short decade…  1901-1910.  The importance of the Edwardian Era far outreached those brief years.  With roots in the Victorian period and wings into what would become Art Deco, Edwardian jewelry was very influential.  Marked by a lacy and light appearance, the pieces from this time remain some of the most desirable antique gems.  

A couple of months ago (when Pick of the Week was born) we shared a striking photo that had our followers going crazy for one particular ring…

This now iconic picture showcased three beauties that were destined to become features.  Two of them have come and gone with little fanfare – but one remains.  Many of you inquired about the ring in the lavender velvet box…  what size is that center diamond?  What metal is it made from?  And, of course, how much is it?  

There was just one tiny glitch…  it wasn’t an old favorite, but rather a new arrival.  This photo was snapped the very day we got that infamous ring.  And so, it was against the grain of everything we wanted the Pick of the Week to be.  This new blog was created to shine a spotlight on hidden gems in the Joden inventory; draw attention to pieces that we’ve had on our site for a longer period of time.  

Finally, the day you’ve been waiting for is here!  Made at the turn of the twentieth century from a classic combination of rosy yellow gold with a platinum top, this ring is absolutely divine.  A delicate picture-frame of fine wires showcases a sunburst of triangular diamond accents.  Each one is bead and bright cut set with a singular Old European Cut diamond.  Together, they point to that glorious center stone – a 1.06 carat Old Euro.  This gem dazzles from every angle and is the true star of the show.  

Impeccable craftsmanship combines with unique style in spectacular fashion.  This ring slides over the knuckle and settles oh-so comfortably at the base of the finger. Classic low profile design and a bezel set center diamond single this beauty out as suitable for daily wear.  And although this ring is still a new arrival, we are giving it the Pick of the Week special pricing.  Originally on our site for $5,950 – we now have it available for just $4,950!  

Don’t hesitate for one single second!  Go to our site and look, then come to Joden and touch.
