They are gorgeous . I am stunned by the prices, but in all fairness I have never shopped for an emerald and do understand that un-treated emeralds are rare that are this clean. I'm sure others who actually know what they are talking about will chime in.
<ul> <li>Item Description: Set with a 2ct ASSCHER CUT Colombian Emerald that is clean and nice. 1ct in VS G Diamonds on the side. Great looking piece and 3cts total. HEAVY 7 grams and solid platinum. Emerald is clean and so pretty and a nice color. Retail $8000. </li> <li>Stone: Colombian...www.ebay.com
I bought a vintage emerald ring from this seller. This $1600 ring was one of the ones I was looking at, but decided on something less expensive. No certs or anything although the seller claims to be a gemologist. Reputation is good, seller is US, and returns are free so I thought I would have a look. I should be getting mine on Thursday. Obviously this is a treated emerald. The emerald I picked has better color, but is more translucent vs transparent.
Whatttt, I am watching a ring from this seller too. How was your ring? does it look like just the picture? The minimal descriptions he given on his items makes me a little worry
My photo is actually its most attractive angle and lighting. I've never seen a gemstone which looks worse in better light. There are also small chips on one side.
I can see why you want to return it. I have seen this seller before and been curious about the items. Glad to have some input about the seller! As for the two emeralds above they are lovely but want to I do origin for the first. Another PSer recently posted about her emerald. Struggling to remember will try to tag her.
I also bought a ring from this seller. He claimed to be a gemologist. It was unfortunately a "learning experience" for me and luckily not too expensive but he's not honest about the actual condition of his pieces. The ring I purchased had oval stones in round heads and one of the stones was visually chipped (likely due to pressure from the misplaced prong). He was a tough personality and became argumentative about the condition when I had pictures demonstrating the issues. It wasn't super expensive and I liked the ring design so I let him talk me out of a return. I still have days where I debate whether I should have returned it.
He has some nice pieces so I often second guess myself since I am addicted to finding good deals but I just can't buy from him again... Just my 2 cents...
