Today we are thrilled to offer for sale a truly stunning and rare light Colombian emerald and diamond white gold cocktail ring! This fabulous ring is the epitome of style, grace, elegance, and is custom designed and executed with the utmost old world quality and craftsmanship. The pièce de résistance of the ring is the magnificent and very rare Colombian light green emerald, weighing a substantial 5.97 carats, and cut in the traditional Emerald-cut. This gorgeous and rare emerald displays a very light (very crystal tone), of the lightest possible in an Emerald. According to the GIA tone scale, tone runs from 0 (white or colorless) to 10 (black). This emerald’s tone (2) is the lightest possible; a light Columbian emerald without Chromium would be a green Beryl but the Chelsea filter shows subtle Chromium in this particular gemstone, making it a rare and desirable emerald specimen in the opinion of our highly qualified gemologist. As you likely know, a fine emerald can be more expensive than a high quality diamond of the same carat weight. The most prized emeralds are highly transparent and are filled with brilliancy, characteristics proudly displayed in this gem. Emeralds are inherently a fractured material. It takes millions of years for an emerald to form and part of its beauty is the characteristics of its natural fractures and inclusions.
Unlike a diamond, there is no official scale that describes an emerald’s clarity, though the degree of flaws varies from one gemstone to another. The impurities are not just accepted as the norm – they are admired. The imperfections in an emerald are described as le jardín, which is French for “the garden.” An emerald’s jardín presents its own unique fingerprint and is a reminder of its natural formation. Each fracture and inclusion tells a story that took place over millions of years in creating this rare gemstone. This gemstone’s subtle inclusions only enhance its’ natural beauty. Mounted to an expertly crafted and detailed marked 14k white gold halo setting, the emerald is adorned with a pair of sparkling trillium-cut diamonds, each weighing .36cts and displaying color H and VS2 grade.
The ring was hand-made right here in Rhode Island (the jewelry capital of the US) by a master jeweler… not some import from who knows where. The emerald is surmounted by a multitude of diamond chips (color H and VS grade) weighing a combined 0.60cts. The ring is brand-new and never used – ready to adorn the hand of a very fortunate woman. This unique ring was created for a buyer with discerning taste and connoisseurship. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to acquire a rare and fabulous ring at a price well under what a brick-and-mortar jeweler would have to charge. Viva la eBay! This noble and grand ring will make an outstanding and crowning addition to any fine jewelry collection. Fresh to the market and destined to become a family heirloom!
