Comment: Newly permitted into our stock: Oiled emeralds. (Please read here if you want to know why.)

For earrings, this 1.96 would match with 1.92 (see more images) but I wanted to show it alone as well. The exquisitely deep vivid green that has made emeralds in general, and Sandawana and Columbia in particular, so famous, so unique a color, that it gotten its own name (we have only three: sapphire-blue, ruby-red, and emerald-green). See the beautiful inclusions in the close-up. 

See here for the pair.

Read about Sandawana Emeralds, and here is a bit more about Emerald grading by the GIA.

This article from Guebelin reports the biggest cut Sandawana emerald as 1.56ct. This was written before our inventory became available to public. Here is one of the largest Sandawana emerald ever found, in fine quality and oil only.

Even Bratt must have foundthis a hard pair to come by.
