Comment: Truly a massive piece of jewelry, in size, weight, looks and cash. Three carats of diamonds out-shone by six carats of intense neon green. Thirty-four round brilliant diamonds are held each by three prongs and set on two different levels with the emerald on the third and highest level. Convex pyramid-view from the side. Antique character with an open 'bird-nest' basket allowing generous light from backside. The raised-up emerald allows a sideview into its girdle. Ultra-posh and valuable for the most demanding jewelry connoisseur. A ring to draw attention in Cannes or Hollywood, if you so wish.

Comment: If you have studied emeralds, you know that unoiled gems are even rarer than loop-clean ones. This six+ carat Colombian emerald features both: no oil and no visible inclusions. Also, no window, rich open intense light bluish green, precision cut and set in finest platinum in the UK. This is only the 2nd piece from our new partner-ship with David Jerome and his world-class collection of untreated gemstone jewelry. Over three carat top 25% quality diamonds, sourced with care and from conflict-free countries, throw a glitter-show worthy, but far from overpowering the center gem. Finest pedigree especially in this rare top color. Note, how the high chromium content intensifies the color where more light hits the crystal, even in the main image with the extra green glow in the lower part. Free re-sizing if needed. Double report included. Now that I have seen the gem in person, I must say that this is perhaps one of a few occasions where 'none better can be found'. See its massive dimensions in handshot and its immaculate clarity in the close-up under 'more images'. Free additional laboratory reports upon request.
P.S. one image has gone through the professional 'glossy-magazine photo-process' which is used on all products and human models today, editing-out any individual details, and leaving behind something perfectly good-looking but also an 'emptiness' or lack of character, IMHO. This image does not fulfil our strict image rules but the photo was made (and costly at that), so we wanted to show it, just for fun and to see the differences. All other images are not tempered with but show the gem as the eye sees it.
P.S.S. we couldn't resist to present the most impressive items first but we will soon show pieces costing less than a town-house.
