If you have been waiting for a HIGH QUALITY AAA+ Emerald ring, this is a great fine natural jewel & very rare/valuable large size Emerald! TRUE ESTATE PIECE HERE!
There are no eye visible dark inclusions, no ugly black spots, no bad spots whatsoever, the only possible "inclusions" here (if you evenwant to use that phrase) is up very close to the eye or with a 10x jewelers loupe you may see just a few tiny near microscopic clear/wispy Emerald "Jardin" or natural "Garden" which is something ALL Real Natural Emeralds have such as barely noticeable little crystal growth feathers and tiny natural Emerald veils inside the crystal itself and barely any of that at all in this one really compared to most other Emeralds as this one is 97+% clean which is VERY VERY hard to find. Particularly hard to find because the bright perfect medium/dark green (best color) FLASHY & FULL OF LIFE type gems like this one really show any and all dark spots readily since they are so clean and this is one is just an ultra clean and PURE Colombian Emerald. Look at the close-up pictures please and judge for yourself as those are real and unaltered pics, note the color with no camera flash! Pictures of course always vary from real life slightly but we do our best to show gems in true life accuracy.
Emeralds are very hard to properly photograph and due to the highly green & glowing nature of gems like this one they certainly can appear lighter or darker in photos but I have tried to provide bright clear lighting (pictures taken in full spectrum "light box" with no camera flash on) so you can see it very true to real life color wise. The saturation is very good and it's abright vivid medium/dark Colombian crystal "dark spring grass" fine green. Emeralds of this color range are RARELY seen for sale on sales, THIS IS GEMOLOGIST CHECKED & CERTIFIED ALSO! Not too dark & definitely NOT a light color Emerald.
Emeralds are "Type III" gems as classified by GIA which means they are normally very highly included sometimes to the point of being opaque so Emeralds of this VERY CLEAN"VS" clarity are very highly regarded and many people far prefer them to the opaque or cloudy stones and personally I prefer the vivid bright green glowing colored gems as do many gem collectors & fine jewelry owners because they are just so few and far between. You can spot this gem across the room & you immediately know it's a top gem BRIGHT FINE GREEN Colombian Emerald! This one looks even better in person too! I guarantee it! The color is really vivid and beautiful, hard to capture in pictures. To facet an Emerald of this large size takes a very large rough Emerald crystal that has to be near flawless and top color!
This gem has been examined by myself with professional GIA lab equipment under very high magnification, viewed with a chelsea filter to confirm the natural chromium content (which gives the gem it's glowing green color and separates the Colombian crystal from other sources), and this is guaranteed 100%. NOT LAB MADE, this is from the EARTH.The face of the gem is super glassy clean and smooth mirror polished, well cut and it sitswell protected down in the thick curved prong setting with openings on the sides for excellent light penetration & maximum color viewwhile still being well secured & safe.Fine Colombian Emeralds like this of course being one of the absolute rarest and most valuable gemstones in the gem world. You can search far & wide & you will likely not find another with a bright Med/Dark Green VS+ Emerald for sale with a TRUE sale in such a nice solid Platinum & 18K Yellow Gold Diamond Estate Ring!

Total weight of the ring is 10.5 grams and the combined two-tone metal to metal ratio is approx 2/3 of Platinum and 1/3 of 18K Yellow Gold weight in the ring setting so it's very substantial but not too heavy, it's the ideal size and weight to wear everyday if you wish. The Emerald is WELL PROTECTED by the solid gold edge prongs that are set over it's Emerald Cut corners to protect it from impacts or if it's dropped it will impact the gold prongs & tips and not the gem edges! This is VERY IMPORTANT for Emeralds! The ring also features *26* very nicely sized tapered baguette genuine Diamonds that are set in a flowing round undulating pattern around the main Emerald gemstone and they are TOP VVS clarity and TOP COLOR D/E (best of the best) Plus there is approx 3 carats in diamonds here so they stand up to and compliment the ring very nicely, a real stunner on the hand!
This is the kind of ring that can be passed down from generation to generation and with the price of fine gold (and fine emeralds) still going up daily it's also a very safe investment for the future value wise and you are getting your money's worth and much more since this is not retail priced and being offered here at a true absolute sale so you get to choose your price no matter what it sells for the highest offer wins! In a reasonable market with realistic real world values I would easily expect this ring to sale here for $12,000+ and the cost of the gold is very high along with the fine all natural Genuine Emerald which typically retails for a few thousand dollars per carat in this high clarity/color in fine jewelry stores but of course this is and anything is possible and rain, snow, heat or hurricane there is truly SALE HERE.

for your shopping convenience.
are traditionally immersed in a natural colorless oil like cedarwood
oil at the mine level and prior to or after cutting and while we do list
certain Emeralds as being natural & untreated there
is ALWAYS the possibility of microscopic traces of natural oils being
present in a miniscule quantity that is not readily detectable even
under standard gemscope due to the nature of the Emerald gemstone and
the properties of Beryl that sometimes simply needs lubricative oiling
while cutting to prevent damage from the faceting process and to cool the
facet rough. So if this is an issue for you than please read up on this subject matter yourself prior to purchase and realize that 99%+ of all
Emeralds will at bare minimum have tiny microscopic traces of oil and
this is done at the mine rough & cutting level and not by an Emerald
dealer like myself. WE
DO NOT TREAT ANY OF OUR EMERALDS! WE DO NOT OIL ANY EMERALDS, WE DO NOT DEAL IN
ANYTHING BUT REAL ACTUAL GENUINE EARTH MINED COLOMBIAN EMERALDS!
we list an Emerald as being "non-oiled" and untreated it means that no
visible oil is readily apparent in the natural fissures/veins of the
gemstone under high power magnification using a GIA gemstone microscope
but again, please realize this opinion may vary from Gemologist to
Gemologist and if we do see any readily apparent or visible traces of
oiling under microscope or under UV light we will disclose it in the
sale because in all reality it is pretty standard with the Emerald
gemstone and not really an "enhancement" but more part of the actual
processing of the mine rough into a gemstone. Most very high clarity
Emeralds may have likely been immersed in the natural oil as rough
crystals but because of the lack of surface reaching inclusions in the
gemstone the oil was unable to penetrate into the gem fissures and thus
it is considered a "non-oiled" Emerald. A heavily included Emerald will
still look cloudy & be very visibly included even after natural
oiling so realize that in order to be a high clarity gem, it must actually be a high clarity gem. Each and every single Emerald comes from a trusted source and is fully
checked under lab equipment to assure satisfaction. We jump over these hurdles so you do not have to!
THANK YOU AND ENJOY LIFE! GOD BLESS & HAVE A SAFE, HEALTHY, AND HAPPY NEW YEARS 2013 AND BEYOND. IF YOU HAVE A LOOSE EMERALD GEMSTONE OR CUSTOM JEWELRY REQUEST PLEASE CONTACT US AND WE WILL HELP! WE STOCK MANY LOOSE NATURAL COLOMBIAN EMERALD GEMSTONES THAT MAY NOT BE LISTED UP CURRENTLY BUT WE CAN EASILY DO SO FOR YOU.

What is an Emerald exactly?
Emeralds are a type of mineral named Beryl, a mineral composed of beryllium, aluminum, silicon, and oxygen. These elements are found in the continental crust, so the colorless beryls normally found are not very rare. As the earth was forming, beryllium migrated to the earth’s crust while chromium moved into the earth’s mantle. There is typically no reason for either of these elements to come into contact. They are members of different chemical families that separated to different parts of the earth, billions of years ago. Emeralds get their green color because some of the aluminum atoms in the beryl crystal are replaced primarily by chromium atoms. This slight difference in elemental makeup is what makes earth mined emeralds so very rare in nature.
In Colombia, emeralds are found within layers of black shale. These sediments were deposited on the floor of a shallow inland sea about 100 million years ago. The shale contains everything that washed off the various rocks that made up the surrounding land - including most of the ingredients of emeralds. Two times in the last 100 million years, there have been surges in the continental plates that brought together all the ingredients needed to form Colombian emeralds. The Atlantic Ocean was expanding and pushed South America against the Pacific. The Andes were raised, causing the thick stack of black sediment under the shallow sea to buckle. Large sloping faults formed several miles down in the sediments and hot water was squeezed out of them, escaping upward along the faults. The superheated water moved through the faults and dissolved the emerald ingredients. Finally, it pooled under a layer of especially impermeable shale until the pressure shattered that layer. The hot solution shot up through empty cracks in the calcite veins and cooled. As it cooled, emerald crystals began to grow immediately. The emeralds grew unconstrained, without the impurities that often cloud emeralds found in other parts of the world.
Emeralds, among the rarest of gems, are always found with natural inclusions. The reason for the formation of these inclusions is a mystery that scientists have yet to solve. It is very likely that the chemistry of emeralds, composed of aluminum and beryllium, goes through a disruptive substitution of larger chromium atoms that succeed in imparting a deeper green than otherwise would be possible. There is, however, a trade-off for gaining incomparable color. The addition of very minute amounts of chromium needed for the natural "greening" of emerald causes the crystal structure to strain & distort to accommodate the atoms of this trace element and thus cause the natural inclusions - or so it is has been theorized.
All emeralds that are used for jewelry go through the same six part enhancement process to become the gemstones we know. The steps are sawing, preforming, cutting, polishing, cleaning, and clarity enhancing. Virtually all emeralds require the process of natural clarity enhancement. This process involves immersing the emerald into a colorless or near-colorless medium. An infinitesimally small amount of the clarity enhancing medium penetrates open fissures. The volume is so small that it is usually not measurable by weight (typically as little as 1/100,000 of a gram). It should be assumed that every emerald has been processed in this manner unless it has an accompanying laboratory report indicating that there is no evidence of a signifigant clarity enhancement medium present. Such extraordinarily rare gems command a considerable premium on the open market.
Most Colombian Emeralds are traditionally cedarwood oil-treated (Colorless oils) which is a 100% natural treatment dating back to ancient times and only compliments & conditionsthe gemstone.
"Emeralds have been treasured for thousands of years. The infatuation with Emeralds dates back to ancient Egypt and Rome. It is said that Cleopatra was always adorned in Emeralds and that this was her most treasured jewelry"
Emeralds have been treasured as adornments in the form of jewelry for centuries. Emeralds are at least twenty times rarer than diamonds, but in the finest grades sell for approximately the same per-carat price as diamonds.
Widely recognized as the Birthstone for May and Astrological affiliation with Cancer (June 22 – July 22), Emerald is also the celebrated gemstone of choice for 20th, 35th and 55th Wedding Anniversary. The Emerald continues to be one of the most popular of precious gemstones.
What Determines the Value of an Emerald?
The usual factors that determine the value of all colored gemstones are clarity, cut, color and carat weight. In the case of Emeralds, color and clarity together dominate value determination along with a signifigant carat weight. Which color is the optimum color for Emerald is widely debated, but it can be stated that the more intense and fine the color is, then the greater the value. Emeralds range in color from a watery light green to a rich velvety green. Emerald of high clarity and good color are quite rare in the marketplace and command a premium price sometimes in the thousands per carat weight and a premium is paid for stones over 2 carats in general as during the cutting process roughly 70% of the original crystal rough is lost.
All Emeralds have natural and expected inclusions unlike other types of gemstones; these known characteristic inclusions do not detract appreciably from the value of the Emeralds unless they are distracting or adversely impact the brilliance or durability of the gemstone. Inclusions that are prevalent to the extent that they are distracting and diminish the brilliance of the Emerald will reduce the value of the gemstone. Emeralds that feature high clarity and minimal natural inclusions will thus have a greatly increased value because of the increased beauty & durability which results.
Colombia enjoys the reputation of supplying the finest in Emeralds. The Color, Clarity and Crystal quality are not seen in any other source of Emeralds anywhere else in the world!
