Emerald and Diamond 3 stone ring mounted in Platinum.
A classic Emerald and Diamond 3 stone ring. This claw set style of ring is timeless, they have been around for many years and always seem to be in fashion. I made this one in Platinum as I think the white goes well with the Emerald. Also, if it was in gold, my wife might want to keep it!
Three stone rings are one of the all time classics as a coloured stone ring goes. This one is a nice example with a good, strong colour Emerald and two, nice, bright Diamonds. This piece is one where a little more care was taken in the design and construction than many others as the Emerald setting and the shank/band are in yellow and the Diamond settings are in white.
Ring Size: UK Size K, US Size 5.25, EU 49 5/8, De 16.
Emerald Weight and Cut: Square Emerald cut, approximately 0.75 cts of a rich green colour. Believed to be Zambian, but no origin report to confirm this. The Emerald has minor oiling for clarity enhancement, which is a common and traditional treatment for Emeralds.
Diamond Weight and Cut: 2x Round Brilliant cuts, approximately 0.34cts in total, G/H SI (with no black marks), approximately 3.5mm in diameter.
The Emerald measures approximately 5.5 mm x 5.25 mm. It's of a nice strong green reminiscent of Colombian colour, but has more of the characteristics of a Zambian stone under the microscope, but this is just my opinion and not guaranteed to be either origin. The stone is transparent and has many inclusion as is expected with Emeralds. If you ever have the opportunity to look at an Emerald under a microscope, please do, they are fascinating.
The setting measures approximately 11.5 mm across the finger and x 6 mm at the widest point. The setting stands approximately 6.3 mm high off the finger. The shank/band is a relatively uniform 2 mm thick tapering towards the setting.
Marks/Metal: The ring has a full UK hallmark for Platinum (950).
Condition: Excellent, it's fresh off the bench.
Sizing: It is possible to size this, but please ask first, so we can make sure it's possible and what cost/timescale may be involved.
A quick note if you're thinking of this as an engagement ring. Please don't buy it. I'm an "Old School" jeweller who cares about his pieces once they've found a new home. Emeralds are a little softer and more brittle than the traditional engagement stones such as Diamonds, Sapphire and Rubies. If worn everyday, as engagement rings tend to be, it will suffer over time. I want you to look after this and enjoy it for many years to come.
I know that colour is difficult to communicate on a website and many colours are very much artificial which is why the last image is of various pieces. If you photoshop an image to improve and Emerald, it doesn't do Orange stones any favours, so you can get an idea of how the stone looks.
The Diamond and Gemstone gradings in this listing are my own opinion and not backed up by a report. These gradings are based on many years’ experience dealing in Diamonds and Gemstones along side the training I have received and qualifications I hold (such as GIA’s Diamond Diploma). These opinions are offered as honestly as possible. Unless otherwise stated, the gradings are assessed whilst the stones are mounted. This can cause restrictions in what is possible to see.
