Comment: Newly permitted into our stock: Oiled emeralds. (Please read here if you want to know why.) Sandawana Emeralds are famous for their ability to 'hold color' even in melee. Hence we could not resist to show you these little miracles, though they don't fit into our usual grading and certification process and pricing. Displayed here is melee starting with 0.06 carat and 2mm under mixed indoors lighting and with reference to a size ten ring and standard tweezer. These exquisite gems are currently available only for our own jewelry projects but we may be able to procure them for you in parcels starting at $1500/carat and upwards, as always, depending on quality and sizes. In deviation from our rules this does NOT yet include 3rd party lab reports for each gem, thought it can be done if you wish. As you can see in the close-ups, some are of outstanding clarity, all are well cut and no less than moderately included.

Here is a bit more about Emerald grading by the GIA.
