Description

Aren't emeralds dreamy? The Romans called them "smaragdus" and believed them to be restorative: speaking of early lapidaries, the great Pliny the Elder said they “have no better method of restoring their eyes than by looking at the emerald, its soft, green color comforting and removing their weariness and lassitude.” The wealthy took matters a step even further and would have exceptionally fine crystals made into quizzing glasses! But even if you're not a lapidary or a Roman lady of leisure, you can still enjoy their gorgeous green glow - for example, consider this beautiful Art Deco emerald, diamond, and platinum filigree ring.

Measuring 10mm x8mm x 5mm, the emerald is estimated to weigh ~2.25 carats. In shape, it is somewhere between oval and cushion, with a very pleasing cut. The stone is untreated except for oil, and I believe it to be of Columbian origin. It has precisely the right amount of "jardin," French for "garden," which is how we term the desirable veils of small inclusions that lead to the emerald's apparent "glow" in bright sunlight - please see pictures! The color is a lovely bright green in most light, but in direct sun it almost looks like a paraiba tourmaline. My photos are in retouched and unfiltered, and while it doesn't perform like this except under certain lighting conditions, when it does ... wow!

The ring is a size 10 at present, and can be sized within reason. It's a superb example of the jeweler's art, dating back to the Late Edwardian or early Art Deco period, as evidenced by its gorgeous milgrain, filigree, and triangular key pattern motif. The setting is in very good vintage condition, and is embellished with 12 single cut diamonds measuring 2.2mm apiece for an estimated weight of .48 points, almost half a carat. They are G/H in color and VS2 in clarity. Overall, one of the prettiest emerald rings I can remember crossing my desk.

As always, if you have any questions or desire additional pictures, please don't hesitate to get in touch.

Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
I accept PayPal, and am always happy to work with a customer on a layaway plan. My general policy is to ask for a nonrefundable deposit of 1/3, with the remaining 2/3rds to be paid off within the next 30 days, but if you want to tailor something specific to your needs, just say the word! I ask that customers adhere to whatever agreement we reach: if a customer misses a payment and does not contact me within 7 days, I am afraid I will have to relist the item.

Returns & exchanges

I accept returns for ready-made items that are significantly not as described, providing a full refund minus the cost of return shipping + insurance. I ask that buyers make their decision within 7 days of receipt, and that returns be undamaged and unaltered (for example, a buyer should not have a ring sized if they're uncertain as to whether they'll be wanting to keep it). Custom orders are non-refundable.

Shipping policies

Ready-made items are shipped within 1 to 3 business days. My default method of shipping is USPS first class, with full insurance, but if you would prefer a different method, please do let me know and I'll be happy to work out an upgrade with you.
