    The emerald looks like it could potentially have a very big window. If you love this style though, there are many beautiful art deco rings out there with similar settings and I love the idea of this sort of ring for an ering too :)

    Pass, or get photos where you are looking directly down on the gem on someones hand (make sure the photo is dead on, so the gem is not tilted at an angle) and a lab report. It almost cettainly has a window and looks suspiciously clean to me. Also emeralds are almost always treated with oil or a polymer infilling (which acts like a glue filling up fishers in the stone). You need a lab report to know what you are getting yourself into.

    The stone looks very poorly cut. I think there is an enormous window, and IRL it won't look great. The emrald is likely to look somewhat "dead" due to the window. I wouldn't do it if I were you, especially bc you can find much better for 11k

    What keeps drawing you in? Is it the design of the ring? The colored stones? Knowing this would help.

    I find the ring itself very pretty, but that poor, poor emerald is "cut" terribly and who knows what it's been treated with. I suppose if you don't mind those things, then by all means. But I'd much rather find an emerald (that I know all about) and have a ring made that's similar.
