JABEL JEWELRY: WHAT MAKES IT SO SPECIAL & SO DESIRABLE?
Navigation: Main page
Author: Viga Boland, webmistress Designer Vintage Jewelry
My first encounter with a Jabel ring was a lucky find. I had never heard of Jabel. I purchased the gorgeous ring on the right because I like art deco design and this one was stunning. It also had superb diamonds, VS quality and G - H clarity. I knew I'd found an excellent diamond ring for those reasons. But I didn't know it was a Jabel. It was my daughter who spotted the name, wearing a little thin in the 18k gold band. She made me jump when she said "My God mom ... it's a Jabel!" I was like, "so?" Being the connosieur of diamonds and gemstone rings that she is, she quickly informed me that I had acquired one of the very best rings made in America and that she wanted to steal it from me LOL. "Not a chance!" said I as I rushed to research "Jabel".
I won't go into all the details about Jabel, but I will direct you to the JABEL WEBSITE. There you will learn that Jabel, an American company, makes no compromises on quality or workmanship. Each piece of jewelry ... and they make rings, bracelets, necklaces ... is hand- assembled, set, finished and polished with as many as 50 separate steps to complete a piece of jewelry. Little wonder that Jabel jewelry costs more and retains its value, even when it's second and third hand. It's not easy to locate and buy an inexpensive piece of Jabel jewelry. So expect to pay more for it when you do.
That first lucky encounter for me has got me always on the lookout for vintage Jabel pieces and I've been lucky to find a few. And I must say that when I list them in my Ruby Lane Shop, they're not there for long. My first two rings, the one above right, and the delightfully vintage yellow and rose gold floral ring set below, sold within hours of listing them! But you can still buy this gorgeous diamond cocktail ring below, appraised over $7000, from
And what about this glorious emerald & diamond JABEL cocktail ring, also available from DIVINE FINDS at RUBY LANE
And let me tell you: the quality of the diamonds in both those rings is outstanding!
