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.
It's a beautiful stone and ring. Cant believe it is just a couple of hundred bucks?So here is my latest. Only a couple hundred bucks and the saturation is poor but I previously had a hideous amethyst in this ring setting and never wore it so this is a definite improvement.

Mixed & Match
Anyone have any idea how to wear & sort of hide the plain chain?
Wow I have no idea how I missed this!! It is GORGEOUS. I think the best way to manage is to probably get the bale of the pendant and the tennis necklace tweaked so that you can hang the pendant from the necklace (if the pendant comes off the chain). If it doesn’t, perhaps have little “loops” added to the back of the tennis necklace at intervals so you can thread the chain through at the back of the necklace, and wear them as one composite necklace.
Such a fabulous thread. Emeralds are my favourite and it feels like a new pricescope favourite too!
Here is mine, a flawed but beautiful old girl. She is Colombian, no treatment, looks much better on than off and weighs 15 carats. The setting (probably marmite but I love it) is late 50s, early 60s but the dealer seemed to think she was a much older stone. If it was practical to wear her every day I would!
So earlier this week my (wonderful amazing) husband took me on a last minute trip to London, he actually suggested the jewellery market Greys Antiques commenting that perhaps I might have a ‘little something’. Now this is the first time that he has ever made a comment like this in our 13 year...www.pricescope.com
Definitely one of the most beautiful rings I’ve ever seen on Pricescope! I love everything about it, the center stone, and it’s cut, clarity, color, butterflies, and the setting, omg, bling bling bling! It’s so Harry Winston! Enjoy!
