DROP GREEN EMERALD | Sterling Silver ring (sold)
- Available: Made to order (2-3 weeks)
- Unique No: 1485
This handcrafted Sterling Silver ring holds a gorgeous drop shaped puffy Emerald.
The natural freeform Emerald has been beautifully faceted into a rose cut and its interior structure is fascinating to look at.
The Incas and Aztecs, in whose former realm the best emeralds are still found today, regarded the Emerald as holy gemstone.
However, the oldest known finds were once made near the Red Sea in Egypt.
These were already exploited by Egyptian Pharaohs between 3000 and 1500 B.C. being referred to as the 'Cleopatra's Mines', and had been exhausted by the time they were rediscovered in the early 19th century.
In Emeralds inclusions are tolerated, in high quality fine emeralds can even be more valuable than diamonds.
It’s one of the genuine four precious stones the other three being the Sapphire, Ruby and the Diamond.
The green of the Emerald is the colour of life and in ancient Rome, the colour of Venus, goddess of beauty and love.
It’s the birthstone of people born in May.
This Emerald is 15 mm long and 11.3 mm wide.
The shank is 1.3 mm wide.
This ring is a UK size N (US size 6 3/4), which is a 54.5 mm inside circumference and a 17.7 mm inside diameter.
This is immediately available.
If you require a different ring size, I need about a week to alter the ring. (will be £10 extra)
All my pieces are unique and when it comes to rings, you want to know the finger size, if it is for the ring finger, pointer, thumb, middle or the pinky, left or right or even for a toe.
In most cases rings can be adapted and resized.
