This or That – Volume 11

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling and Ponderable Things

Are you an antique jewelry lover or do you marvel in all things modern?  Do you delight in the rich details of Victorian pieces or perhaps you’re drawn to the clean and classic style of 2024.  At Joden, we have it all – from Georgian and Victorian to custom creations of today – it’s all here.  You can choose this, or that…  or perhaps both. 

While browsing through a box of new goods, I discovered both of these bracelets.  Each one has an appeal all its own.  First, we have a 14-karat yellow and rose gold beauty made in the late 1800’s.  Ten nearly identical links span the wrist.  Oval in shape, each one highlights a pair of rose gold vines that are decorated with two yellow gold leaves.  At the center of each one is a round milgrain-edged bezel.  These bezels are set alternately with a ruby, and a diamond, and then another ruby and so on.  It’s a true masterpiece of botanical beauty.  Measuring just shy of 7-inches, this bracelet also features a hidden clasp.  Priced at $2,800 -it’s available in store or on our site.  

Then, we have a simple triple-stranded bracelet.  Comprised of three individual strands of fully faceted ruby beads, this bracelet is completely different than it’s Victorian counterpart.  There are approximately 120 beads on each strand, for a total of 360 gems.  Each ruby has been fully drilled and slid onto a narrow piece of wire.  Extremely flexible, this bracelet is comfortable and easy to wear.  

With every turn of the wrist, each tiny gemstone sparkles in the light.  It glitters from every angle, and yet still has a casual feel.  The three strands are joined with one elegantly ribbed 14-karat yellow gold clasp.  I can’t help but admire the ease of this simple design.  Priced at just $1,175.00 – this piece is also available in our store and on our website.

At Joden, we have both of these beauties, and so much more.  Whether you prefer vintage flair or fresh new style, Joden Jewelers is the place for both.  With so many differences, I can’t help but wonder…  which ruby bracelet is your favorite?  Do you love this Victorian vibe, or are you crazy for that modern triple-strand?  

This or that?  Or, better yet…  why choose?  They pair beautifully  – get them both!  Hop on over to our site and make them yours today.
