by TheGarnetGirl » Jan 10, 2019 Hello Everyone! (: I made an earlier thread asking your opinion of a prospective emerald, which I ended up purchasing and loving! I ultimately wanted to cut costs and save some money and also get some more experience with gem setting by purchasing a pre-made setting that I could set the emerald in myself but I actually found a little local bench who created a setting for a much better cost. Overall for the emerald, the setting, and the work to fabricate the little stacker it all cost less than $240 For that price, I'm quite pleased with the outcome and believe that it will become a staple in my jewelry rotation and my everyday emerald ring. (: Time for some snaps of my lil' jewel! & I swear its so difficult to take an accurate photo of any emerald. This one is pretty true to photos although it's less a jade color and more bluish green- which I adore.
