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

Yes that's where I got mine from too! Very satisfied with the whole experience.

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 726BF5B1-8C91-42DE-B19E-A46CA3893CA1.jpeg DF727651-26C1-4623-AD4D-A6262D6106C5.jpeg 2BC5A79E-E827-41DC-9642-A3E9603A640C.jpeg 3E06E4F4-E370-4726-8FA0-D666F4D82C16.jpeg 9C20D512-CF46-4D19-AA00-2702609A9857.jpeg 5324C842-0F39-4415-8DB0-0D6E385DFCBF.jpeg 1A870804-49E5-48AA-8893-1C9725719F4B.jpeg C86421DA-C916-49F0-B9D8-8D902D93D82C.jpeg F8EA6B6B-C8C5-49E7-8EDE-C8F0F8B2085A.jpeg 605A4D2F-63BA-4011-8DF2-253DC8DCD9E7.jpeg FB557989-3667-47F8-97CC-42EEA03005C3.jpeg 04785699-BFC0-48FC-960B-3379F4497BDB.jpeg C09DE47F-0A58-4E1C-9472-05A31C78DF03.jpeg

It’s gorgeous.
My only thought would be is if you paid a premium for it being authentic antique ring - what is the backup information that was given?
Probably not the thoughts you were looking for - but I’m curious!

Hi, not sure what you mean by backup information?

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.

Oh wow…that glow!!!!
Really pretty and the cab heart is just amazing.
I’m now obsessed with emeralds and found a big hunky cab that has rich color but admittedly has surface reaching fissures. I’m told it will not affect stability but you can see them.
I don’t have pics and can’t get in to look until later this week so I’ll start a new thread.
In meantime enjoy that beauty!!!!

@Rfisher that emerald is lovely! I tried looking up that website and it doesn't appear they exist anymore; either that or they changed names. It's a beautiful ring!
