EMERALD EARRINGS These are natural untreated stones from africa. They have been bezel set in silver Stamped 925. The weight is for both the silver and stone.
Our jewelery manafacturing is contracted out to one factory in asia where i supply both the silver and stones to be set.This gives me control of the quality of both the silver and stones.
Emeralds are a variety of the mineral beryl colored green by trace amounts of chromium and sometimes vanadium.
Beryl has a hardness of 7.5–8 on the 10 pointMohs scale
Emerald tends to have numerous inclusions and surface breaking fissures. Unlike diamond, where the loupe standard, i.e. 10X magnification, is used to grade clarity, emerald is graded by eye. Thus, if an emerald has no visible inclusions to the eye (assuming normal visual acuity) it is considered flawless. Stones that lack surface breaking fissures are extremely rare and therefore almost all emeralds are treated, “oiled”, to enhance the apparent clarity. Eye-clean stones of a vivid primary green hue (as described above) with no more than 15% of any secondary hue or combination (either blue or yellow) of a medium-dark tone command the highest prices. This relative crystal non-uniformity makes emeralds more likely than other gemstones to be cut into cabochons rather than faceted shapes.
The Gemstone Sheriff program allows our members to request an audit on any auction, which is completed by an independent gemologist who assesses the accuracy of the item description and pictures.
