Very nice pendant. I think moderate Oil is not a problem, as long as the emerald doesn't have any large open fissures in the table. Some time ago I bought an emerald with moderate oil from JR Colombian and it hasn't changed at all
4 carat old cut Columbian Emerald. Very transparent, only one very tiny surface reaching fissure on the pavilion (will be sending to AGL) - the couple small spots on the table are actually scratches not fissures. Very glowy - I believe it might have the rare Gota De Aceite affect but will know for sure after it gets certified. Irl it’s a vibrant green - more saturated than the pics show and the inclusions are less irl as well. The ring is antique Victorian with old mine cut diamonds, so it’s old! Would love any thoughts
In response to your questions in another thread-
You can click on each individual photo for clearer viewing.
I can try later to take closeup pictures of the surface reaching inclusions and tiny girdle chips, if you really want? Heck - the only reason I know the tiny girdle chips were there was DK side noted them when he received the stone for setting!
the price reflected its imperfect condition, but it doesn’t bother me one bit when I look at the stone in real life. I’m incredibly happy with it!
Of course if it were priced in the thousands - that would be a different situation.
The nature of it being an included emerald high dome cab and it’s setting = very infrequent wear and definitely very low activity with that hand while wearing.
I bought the stone from another PSer who bought it from ACStones. It’s not vintage nor antique- but really I have no way of knowing how old it is.
