THE PRODUCT This is a gorgeous raw emerald ring and is apx. 3 cts. Each ring is handmade by myself and is for the person who truly enjoys the look of a real emerald and admires it's beauty straight from nature. We hand select and cut each emerald to guarantee you're getting the best quality natural stone possible! We then polish them with a natural oil sealant for a beautiful shine. These emeralds have not been treated in any way and is exactly how you would find it if you dug it up yourself. Since it is natural each emerald has it's own unique veins and varies in depth and shades green making them all one of a kind. Each Emerald will have it's own unique look with natural imperfections and color variations. We cut them into a dainty 8mm squares and then set them in a .925 sterling silver, or gold that is sterling silver plated in 14k gold. The gold we use is a very vibrant color. Finally we put a clear resin on the bottom of the stone to ensure an even longer product life and top it off with a polish, ensuring a beautifully glowing ring! The shades of each stone vary since they are natural and untreated. If you have a shade preference, please indicate it in the notes section. To see matching earrings and necklace follow links below.
