Glittering Gold

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and a Tacori Ring

Timeless and classic – this 18 karat yellow gold ring by Tacori is perfection from every angle.  With a round diamond center stone weighing .70 carat and a single line of square diamonds down each shoulder – this ring is everything! 

 

Trademark Tacori details on the edges and shank add just the right amount of gingerbread to this already beautiful piece.  Every bit of this ring is made from yellow gold – it’s the ideal complement to the warm body color of the center diamond.  Many people think that every girl wants a bright, white diamond…  that just isn’t true!  In fact, many women are drawn to a stone that has a bit of color, like this one.  

Not only do many ladies prefer a warm diamond,  we have recently discovered that more and more girls are leaning toward the sultry rich tones of yellow gold.  And it’s not just about color.  They are also loving the low maintenance lifestyle of gold in it’s natural hue.  Unlike white gold, the shiny finish of a yellow gold ring is easily restored by polishing – no rhodium (or “dipping”) required.  

Moderately priced at just $3700, this designer bling is the ultimate choice for modern brides in search of enduring elegance.

A Heart of Gold

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and Little Things

The difference between good things and really great things is the details…  the small elements that combine to create true works of art.  I am always on the look-out for interesting pieces to share with you – this week, I was methodically peeking through trays of gold jewelry in Joe’s office.  I wasn’t expecting inspiration to strike…  I have looked at these pieces time and again.  Nonetheless, I was looking for SOMETHING.  That’s when I found these…

Two truly unique bracelets – I have seen both of them before, but never gave either more than a cursory glance.  When I picked up the first one, I pushed the tiny button that released the clasp.  I closed it around my wrist, this delicate tubular bangle made from 14 karat yellow gold featuring a pair of juxtaposed fans.  Then I brought it to my eye, my jeweler’s loupe at the ready.  Centered on the matte gold finish of each fan was a Japanese Crane in flight – an ancient symbol of good fortune and longevity.  Absolutely charming!  The finer points of this lovely Art Nouveau bangle – the details – make it worth every penny of it’s $1100 price. 

Then I picked up the second bracelet – this one a link-style.  When I moved the elegant little safety chain to the side and clasped the bracelet, that’s when I saw it!  Dangling from one side of the chain was a small gold heart, and on the other side, a miniature key. 

I didn’t need to know another single thing about the bracelet – I was enchanted by this… the key to someone’s heart.  For those who need to know more…  this beauty consists of eight links with a hand-engraved center.  Each section is a polished 18 karat yellow gold frame.  Inside the frames are alternating patterns of high-relief 22 karat yellow gold flowers and leaves.  Made in the 1950’s and designed for daily wear, subtle sophistication combines with whimsical detail to create a true gem.  Take it home today for just $3200.

The essence, the spirit of Joden is in the details.  When you see our signature black bag and the embossed gold ribbon on the package, you know there’s something incredible inside.  Check out our site at www.joden.com and then come to our showroom and experience the magic for yourself.

Millenial Mavens

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and  Non-traditional Rings

In my work world, we talk engagement rings on the daily…  We’re a team.  We share stories, offer advice, and often dissect current trends.  This year has brought an entirely new engagement adventure…  millenials want to savor the experience (while simultaneously documenting it on social media, of course) and ultimately find a ring as unique as their relationship. 

Today’s couples are choosing vintage.  They want mixed metals, rose gold and yellow gold often paired with colored stones.  2018 is all about floral motifs, shapes, and distinctive rings. 

This pairing is the absolute limit of style and individuality!  First, from the estate of Tamara Toumanova, is this 14 karat gold flower ring.  The curved rose gold petals bloom on your finger while the stem and leaves wrap around to form the band.  Four round diamonds twinkle from inside.  Wear it alone, or stack it with this charming eternity band.  Crafted from 14 karat yellow gold, eleven tiny flowers circle the band, each with a single-cut diamond center.  Perfect for those with an eye for exceptional elegance.

Some couples are opting to forego the engagement ring altogether, preferring instead to celebrate their union with a singular band.  The antique and estate jewelry at Joden offers hundreds of choices…  whether you have a vintage vision in mind or something sleek and modern, our selection will not disappoint.  Here are a few of my favorites…  enamel flowers, matte-finish modernism, and fabled moonstones – each one a tiny treasure in its own right.  Stop in, drop me a line (carrie@joden.com), or call me for details and pricing!
