That’s gorgeous! I don’t think I can talk you out of it though. I say add it to your collection.

Yes, why am I missing something? The diamonds looks very clear and bright, no idea about the emerald but I have seen smaller emerald rings in a setting not as nice for around that amount.

I love the setting—yes! But I know nothing about emeralds so I’m at a loss here.

It looks beautiful on you and the price is very reasonable. I like the color and I bet it's wonderful in the sunshine.

I'm sorry.

I see what you mean. I wonder if having it oiled would calm those spots down. Hopefully someone comes along that knows emerald and can give more feedback. I still think it is beautiful. I still love this ring on you and I think it is quite substantial for 900.

Hmmm, the sun pics would make that a pass for me, so they bother you? If so then they probably always will so that’s something to think about.

ETA: I would post this in colored stones, they would know.

oh, I just saw that you did post in CS so hopefully you will get some feedback on the emerald.

Haha! I hadn’t been there in 2 years and I’ve never actually bought anything from this shop. Lol. But I’m trying to remind myself that I don’t need to buy everything that is pretty. Self restraint is sooo hard

A good buy in my opinion. Price out comparable emeralds at africagems or multicolor and I think you’ll be happy with your purchase. That said, if the inclusions bother you then it doesn’t matter how good a buy it was.

Oh! Well then I’ll just have to spend the whole day with you because you seem to know a few good jewelry spots! :)

yes... I have to remind myself of this often. I can love it without buying it.

So pretty! I really love this setting especially that there is an almost “ruffled” appearance with the round stones to the north and south of the emerald. Maybe that’s not the right terminology but trust me, it’s a compliment =)2

I get it! It is scalloped, that’s for sure!
