Comment: Permitted in our stock: Oiled emeralds. (Please read here if you want to know why.)

As mentioned before, only Sandawana emeralds hold their color in smallest sizes, meaning that a 5-pointer displays its color as much as a five-carater, true the latter will be more visible but not MORE green. These two quatre-carat gems are undistinguishable to the eye, even if you may think you can separate them on our 36-fold images, in person no-one can, except with a lens and a good long study thrown in. A five-carater will hardly be more clean since these smaller fellows have nothing but some silk and some tiny dots, a state we will rarely find in a big gem, as did the celebrity below. A 'very lightly included' will be difficult to maintain in large gems but I don't expect any five carater coming for sale anymore. Those are long stashed away in the vaults of people, jewelers and investment-businesses looking for a distributed asset portfolio. The biggest we have to offer is two carats. This matched pair will shine with as much green as the eye can absorb and throw a good deal of silky luster into the deal. Allow us to set such rare gems in earrings with goldsmiths' teams who know how to handle even brittle gems (as all emeralds are), plus we take responsibility for breakage in our workshop, and replace or credit if a gem suffers in our hands and we cannot replace it with an equal gem. 

P.S. The unusual circumstances of this year, personal and in general, have so far hindered us from getting lab reports done, although I dare hope this will change by late May when I will visit Antwerp in person. The price here quoted is EXCLUDING our usual certificate. If you like to have a lab report for this garnet we need to add between $100 for an IGI report or up to $1,500 premium for a full AIG report. But it, too, would need a good deal extra time (currently over 12 weeks, sigh). That prices in this P.S. section differ is no lazy mistake but reflects the different pricing policies of the gem labs we use. Some calculate via weight, e.g. a 7 carat garnet is more expensive to test than a one carat, others labs go via pieces, when a small sapphire costs as much as a 10 carat gem.
