This ring was my first ring I ever purchased for myself and was lost for years. I went to Greece about six years ago and never really liked wearing rings, but saw this in a store in Athens and I loved it. Given this was way before I joined pricescope and so I didn't have as much knowledge of gemstones as I do now. I know that this is not the best quality emerald but it is natural with an inclusion that does reach the surface as seen in the pictures.
About a year after buying it I had misplaced it in my apartment. I was torn mainly because it stood for my memory of my first trip to Europe and knowing that I could at least stand having the weight of rings on my middle finger (still don't like wearing rings on my ring finger). As time went on I bought new rings and sorta forgot about this one. A few days ago I did another major cleaning of my room, and found a ring box with this ring in it.
I love that it still fits and the design and texture of the ring. The emerald has a nice deep color to it even with the inclusion, I feel it doesn't take to much away from it. The emerald is 5x7 and two rubies are 2mm each. The rose gold is more peachy gold which I love because I don't want it to pink. Here are many pictures :)

Oh I love this very very much. It's a classic design but the use if rose gold makes it different. I like how the Rose gold complements the Emerald and rubies but doesn't compete like yellow would. S very glad you found it

Thank u all. The pictures are pretty close to what the emerald color is, though its not capturing the glow of the emerald, but the rubies come out lighter and more purple pint in the pics than what I see in real life

It doesn't have to be world class to be pretty and loved. I think it's a beautiful piece that deserves to be worn and enjoyed.
