Because @T_L said to post here :)

Indoor daylight photos of my first emerald sourced for me by a fellow PSer! 2.04ct Columbian, minor oil, 7.27x7.09x5.78mm square step cut.
Pair of side shield cut diamonds are 0.8ct, melee of 0.02 and 0.01s are 0.58. So total of 1.38ct diamonds. 18k white gold with the prongs and lotus inspired basket in yellow gold. This was also my first stab at designing a ring from scratch and I wanted a different halo from the usual classics.

This is just breathtaking. I love the setting, the color, the sheer drama.

Thank you! This is one of my favorite rings currently and even though the emerald isn't as big as many others here, the ring gets a lot of compliments and looks when worn out :).

DW's latest acquisition is a 4.5ct Columbian emerald, bezel set with diamonds in 18K yellow gold:

Interestingly the AGL report giving insignificant to minor traditional oil also includes the statement "This emerald contains fissures which at the time of testing were only partially filled." Haven't seen this one before!

The piece is likely between 20 to fifty years old, and it would appear the stone has never been re-oiled, and some of the original oil has evaporated. The bezel setting is going to make a re-oil rather difficult, for sure a cleaning using hydrochloric acid is not going to happen! :eek-2:

More photos of this south sea pearl, emerald, and diamond convertible necklace can be found in a SMTB thread, link HERE.

New emerald-in-matrix specimen arrived recently. It's from the Panjshir Valley, Afghanistan:

The crystals in the centre of that main group are an amazing vivid, deep, saturated colour, but there is colour variation amongst the crystals. A couple have more-or-less colourless areas. The photo really doesn't do this specimen justice.

Dimensions of the specimen is approx 6cm by 3.5 cm by 3 cm, and the crystals are just a few mm in length. They really stand out though, even from a distance, because of their colour!

My new dark 1.08cts green emerald from JR Colombian Emeralds. It is hard to show the color right, but here is some photos and video ). In real life it is a deep blue green color and glow that is hard to capture :).

Hi. Here is the video again the emerald has more blue green tone to it, but my camera and video seems to make the green more yellow for some reason lol. It was one of their settings they had as a ring, but the original ring had a lighter color emerald in it, so I picked an upgraded emerald and they made it from CADS.

Here's my cherished Ethiopian opal. I read about them being like an emerald and a paraiba had a baby (in terms of glowiness) and I had to have one.

It's wonderfully bright, a vibrant green, and is even better in action (click to see video).
Emerald is so mesmerizing and majestic, especially under low light.

@prs that is just outstanding, my jeweler oiled my Emerald halo with diamond and metal and all.
I didn't know they could do that. We have this bracelet and a bezel set emerald that would definitely benefit from re-oiling.

Thanks for the info!

Another photo which shows the color intensity and brightness better, but still have a hard time capturing the blue-green and makes it seem more yellow-green
