Lately I've been on an emerald binge, not intentionally, but somehow I keep coming across beautiful emerald pieces that are just too good to ignore. This newest arrival to forEVAgems is classy, feminine & fun, set with a glowing natural emerald accented with pristine clean, white diamonds.
Set in stamped Pt900 Platinum, this vintage beauty is a step or tier-style ring with the central emerald sitting tallest in the middle as the diamonds 'step-down' in two tiers below it. Measuring just short of 7x5mm emerald-step cut, the emerald carat weight is stamped as 0.92 on the band. Its color is a rich, vibrant bluish-green with even color distribution - no white or brown inclusions rearing their heads through the table. As all emerald do, this gem contains tell-tale natural 'jardin' inclusions within the stone, but to the naked eye, her color saturation and tone present a stunningly beautiful natural emerald.
The accenting diamonds, 4 baguette-cut and 6 round brilliant-cut are water clean dazzlers. Take a look at our macro photo to see for yourself how clean the diamonds are. No visible inclusions at all to the naked eye, and very few under magnification, we gauge the baguette-cut diamonds to grade VVS-VS clarity with G-H color, and the round brilliants VS1 to Si1 and again, G-H color. Their carat weight is also stamped on the band, 0.35, bringing the total carat weight of the emerald and diamonds to 1.27ct.
The mounting showcases beautiful 'swirls' of platinum openwork underneath the gems, with the sides of the ring in a cut-out 'V' or forked-style setting. A sturdy ring, the shank is a good, thick 2.25mm wide at its base. The bottom half of the shank appears unpolished or almost 'brushed', which we assume is intentional to the design as it is consistent all the way around the bottom of the shank before becoming polished where the platinum 'forks' into a V. Platinum is known for marking up quite easily, so this design is smart in the sense that scratches and marks won't be as easily noticeable when they occur from wear.
In excellent, ready-to-wear condition, this elegant ring is currently a US size 5 and is sizable up or down within a range. Please always inquire about sizing before placing your order so we can verify with our jeweler on cost and maximum sizing limits.
