I love to brag about Joden to people who ask me about my favorite antique and vintage jewelry shops, because I know they’ll be happy to find out that not only do they have such a wide selection, but they constantly update their inventory online and on Instagram so you can shop from anywhere. I visited their store back in 2015 and was blown away by such treasures — my well-known wedding day opal ring is from Joden, as are a few other favorites from my personal collection. I was excited to catch up with my friends at Joden and pick out my TOP TEN favorite rings that are currently in their inventory — fair warning: this was so tough to choose just ten, so be sure to check out their entire website and daily Instagram updates for their most recent finds.
Ok, here are my ten picks — let me know what you think and if you see any you can’t live without, they’re all available from Joden, just email firstname.lastname@example.org to purchase as these are not yet listed on their website!
1 — A ring with a beautiful silhouette and sparkly diamonds, how can it get better than this?! This ring is one for someone who is as elegant as they dress, walk, and talk. The pearl could represent a June birthday, perhaps? Or simply a love for the ocean. An antique piece, this ring dates back to the turn-of-the-century. One of my favorites, for sure! Email email@example.com for price.
2 — There’s something to be said for finding that perfect stackable ring…one that gives any stack that “pop” of color and pairs well with so many options. This turquoise band is definitely just that! This Victorian ring has five turquoise stones, two of which have a darker green coloring to them, which is one of my favorite aspects of antique turquoise. These colors are so vibrant and beckon for contrasting diamonds & other gemstones to stack with. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to purchase.
3 — So I love a good intaglio and when I saw this one, with the deer + antlers, I thought it was quite unique. I’ve never seen a deer intaglio before. This vintage ring is done in 14k yellow gold and currently is a small size, which is perfect because I was going to suggest it as a pinky ring. Jewelry that is more on the masculine side has been an up-and-coming trend recently and this ring is exactly what that concept embodies. Email email@example.com for price.
4 — These Edwardian rings with the spiderweb filigree are my absolute favorite! This one is set with some beautiful old European cut diamonds and a lustrous pearl. I love the boldness of it and I think it can be worn on any finger and look amazing. If you’ve been wanting a ring from this era, here’s your chance! I couldn’t think of a better example. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for price and more.
5 — Want to know what gemstone I’ve been totally obsessed with lately?! Jade! I love a good green gemstone and I’ve been drawn to jade, especially in this particular ring. I love the elongated shape of it, the Art Nouveau lines and the diamond accents. This piece is very casual yet can be elegant, depending on how it is styled. I would choose to wear it on my middle finger, along with lots of other long rings. Email email@example.com for price.
6 — If you’re looking for that antique + filigree vibe, but want something more smaller, that you can wear everyday, may I suggest this ring?! It has all the right dimensions and symmetry. It is also completely white gold, which may be appealing if you are on the hunt for a ring that doesn’t have yellow gold topped with white metal. I could also see this ring being worn as an alternative engagement ring and I’m here for it! Email firstname.lastname@example.org for all the details.
7 — I’ve had a crush on amethyst for a very long time now and even more so lately. I can’t think of a better amethyst ring than this solitaire right here. Taking advantage of amethyst’s abundance allows for such a bold carat weight and I love the simple mounting with all its glorious Victorian details. If this ring had four prongs how boring would it be?! I’m so thankful for each every prong — it makes it more unique and I know you like unique just as much as I do! Email email@example.com for price.
8 — If you don’t already have an onyx Art Deco ring in your personal collection, I’m telling you you need one! Or even if you do, you may have to add another because I don’t think one can have too many onyx rings. This one is extra special, which is why I chose it, because of the diamond in the center and the black & white enameling. You can’t miss that fine detail — the black and white enamel dashes around the perimeter makes this ring so fun! Email

9 — I remember hunting down one of these memorial mourning rings a few years ago when I was just starting to get into mourning jewelry. Although we may never know who W. Terry is, something about that sleek black enamel and gold lettering makes these bands a must-have for any collection. What is tricky is size, as you need your exact size since making it smaller or larger is impossible. Email email@example.com for more information.
10 — And without further ado, my most favorite ring that Joden currently has — again, Jade has been my obsession as of late and this ring is completely stunning in every way possible! From the immaculate French cut rubies and to the old cut diamonds, I love everything about it. I could see this ring being a holiday gift or special anniversary present. Do you have a big milestone coming up? Celebrate with this ring! Email firstname.lastname@example.org for price and to purchase.
