This beautiful, impressive green wearable art emerald necklace is made of various sizes & shapes of genuine, earth-mined emeralds from Brazil and they were carved in India. The emeralds weight about 900 ct. These emeralds are large, some are 15 mm melon shaped. But, these are "lower-grade" emeralds that have been enhanced by oiling and filling for fractures and they were dyed with oil for the very green color. The technology to enhance these beads is rather new from the 1990's. Almost all stones are enhanced even diamonds. If you hold them up to the light you can see lots of inclusions. Inclusions show they are real. Emeralds that have fewer inclusions cost $200/ct up to $5000/ct. But, these emeralds are real & natural just lower quality. They would look so beautiful around your neck. The gold vermeil beads really set off the emerald beads. This impressive necklace has been made quite creatively. The large 15 mm melons with gold head-pins form a kind of bridge between the two strands. It was very hard to do this but the final effect is amazing. These emeralds may be about grade-B but they would sell for at least $10.00/ct - $25.00 per carat.in a jewelry store which would make price at least $9,000.00. They look much more expensive than they are. Haute-4-not-a-lot! Hot-4-not-a-lot!
