Asymmetrical Allure

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling and Uneven Things

Boom!  This word is often used to describe a post-war period.  At the end of WWII, the American economy was thriving.  In fact, the years between 1945-1960 would later become known as the “Golden Age of Capitalism”.  It was a time marked by economic prosperity.  Unemployment was low and wages were high.  Americans had money to spend on everything from houses in suburbia to fine jewelry.

In the midst of televisions, fast food restaurants and family cars, there were also strands of pearls and cocktail rings.  The style of the 1950’s was more refined than the previous Retro era.  Bracelets and button earrings were staples for day wear while diamond jewelry was all the rage for evening.  

This asymmetrical beauty showcases all the earmarks of the period.  Made from crisp 14-karat white gold, the off-kilter appearance encompasses a pierced motif accented by a milgrain border.  Resembling a sophisticated spoon ring, the tapered band wraps around the finger, juxtaposing the narrow high-polish plain side with the wide diamond accentuated side.

The ideal adornment for the feminine, curvaceous fashion of the fabulous 1950’s – this ring dazzles at every turn.  Sixteen diamonds that include both round brilliant and single cut decorate the widest portion of the ring.  With a combined weight of .50 carat, this charmer was almost certainly saved for evening wear – however, times have changed.  Today, the ring could easily adapt to daily wear.  The price is almost as attractive as the ring…  hop over to our website and make it yours for only $975.00.

The Space Between

Baubles, Bling, and a Wrap Around Ring

With only three shopping days left until Christmas, the holiday panic has set in!  Stores are filled with customers who just don’t know what to buy!  Don’t let it get you.  At Joden, we can solve all your gift-giving dilemmas.  We have perfect pieces for everyone on your list…  we’ll even wrap it with a pretty bow!

Check out my pick for today… an absolutely adorable wrap ring.  This is not your mom’s wrap ring…  instead, it’s like a little hug for your finger.  Made from 14 karat rose gold, this piece is a play on a bypass ring.  One end features a lovely lavender colored amethyst nestled into a delicate halo comprised of twenty-eight round brilliant diamonds, while the other end is a tiny micro-pave diamond ball.  The 2.38-carat amethyst is specially cut with a checkerboard style faceting that adds to the modern feel of the ring.  The forty-seven diamonds that make up the two stations have a combined total weight of .12 carats.  It’s the ideal amount of sparkle!

While I am crazy for both of these elements, the best part of this ring is the space between them.  Look at it on my hand (excuse my un-manicured nails!).  The tiny opening makes this ring.  It’s everything!  

I’m sure you’re wondering about the price, right?  I am delighted to tell you that this whimsical little beauty is priced at just $550.  It’s definitely budget friendly, and it’s available now at Joden Jewelers.
