Ooo i know this vendor! I've bought a lot of cheapy <1ct CSs from him. The colors IRL were def way less bright and saturated than the pics. But I requested a refund thru ebay and it was processed smoothly. I was only out the return shippinh fees.

I’ve been casually looking for an emerald for over a year now and I’m still surprised with how expensive they can be. Have you checked out Muzoemeralds on Instagram? I’ve seen some ”no oil” emeralds on his feed (linking one below). They aren’t cheap but they were a LOT less than the two you shared above.

Are you committed to “no oil?” Most emeralds are treated and I think you could get an amazing emerald with “minimal” or “minor” treatment. If it’s a mind clean thing, I totally understand.

Stopping in to update that I am looking at a few F1s this week - possible a compromise between my desire for high quality oil only and my budget! We will see...

Here is an f1 I saw today. Different jeweler, 8,400. It goes a little dark in a line down the center, Probably somewhat from the holder but I could also see it on my hand. IMG_5789.jpg IMG_5788.jpg IMG_5785.jpg IMG_5784.jpg Stunning color and glow.

I see the potential in this. Would you consider putting metal underneath the stone to reflect the light back? I think it could work as the color is dark enough for it not to be obvious. Some examples of the heads you could use. Still open enough for cleaning.

Another one for consideration. No treatment, Zamia, 1.45 carats, 7.76 long, cut is pleasing to the eye. I like the color. I love the cut and the clarity. The "glow" is more.....center area of the stone, compared to the last Columbian I saw that was terribly cut but still glowed. 10K at a (different) local jeweler.

OPEN to all thoughts and opinions!

The Zambian one is overpriced, and it has a bow tie in the cut. I actually thought it looks like a cheap lab emerald.
