I love it!!!! The color is incredible, and the elegant design really lets the emerald tan center stage! Thanks for sharing!
YES to minimal metal!!! It's to die for. I am so glad you came back with more pictures.
Oh, this is such a beauty! Your ring reachs perfection in my eyes.
Wanted to ask- was Total Price for the emerald $8,100? Included the vendor's cert and shipping?Okay, here are the details:
Vendor was Bright Green Stones in Bangkok. I was nervous to purchase from an overseas vendor but they were very communicative and happy to respond to my many questions and requests for photos and videos.
The stone is Colombian, BG says it is from Muzo, minor oil, 3.43ct, 10.85 x 8.90 x 5.46 (which I am guessing means it is cut quite shallow - I was (pleasantly) surprised at how large it looked in person). Price was $8,100 (negotiated) which was quite a bit cheaper than the other (slightly smaller) stone I was interested in, which was from Leibish.
Thank you, @Snow White! I would LOVE to see your emerald ring. I bet it’s gorgeous, especially if your sapphire ring in your avatar is anything to go byOh, this is such a beauty! Your ring reachs perfection in my eyes.
I had a German jewelry maker create a "similar" ring for me.
Yours is so much more balanced and elegant.
Congratulation for it and for your coming baby!
Around 0.8ctw. Steven originally recommended 1ctw for the side stones, but the ring ended up looking a little wide when we held them up to the centre stone. We also looked at slightly smaller side stones (around 0.6ctw), which was lovely too, although a different look.Gorgeous - I love the proportions of the center and sides -what size are the side stones? I actually prefer the cleaner look of your ring compared to mine, but I purchased mine already made. If I had gone custom I would have done just as you have. Adore double prongs - This is as classic and beautiful as they come. A true heirloom piece to be enjoyed for generations. Looks divine on your finger.
Thank you, @EmeraldEmpress !! Yes, our little one is just gorgeous and doing well, which is the absolute best thing!Wanted to ask- was Total Price for the emerald $8,100? Included the vendor's cert and shipping?
(I know you pursued an additional cert to verify treatment, but did I read the vendor had provided a cert that detailed color as well as claiming minor treatment?)
All that to say a bit over $8k total for this emerald seems a fantastic rate!

I would love to see your emerald ring? Is it the one in your avatar? If so, looks gorgeous!
So happy to hear baby is well : )Thank you, @EmeraldEmpress !! Yes, our little one is just gorgeous and doing well, which is the absolute best thing!
Yes, that's right. I had a hard time finding emerald of the size I wanted from the recommended vendor list, so I didn't have a lot of comps to compare it with. But it was a bit less expensive than the few similar emeralds I did find.
Alas, the ring in my Avatar is a dream ring, which I hope to have someday : ) It inspires me very much though!!! I am fortunate to have an authentic Art Deco 3.65ctw, F color diamond ring that I have considered making my Avatar... but there is just something about that emerald ring... ; )
classy, fabulous, truly fantastic, old hollywood, important emerald ring!! how do you get anything done with that enormous emerald on your hand??! I adore it on you! wear in the best of health and everlasting happiness!!
