Antique Victorian ring featuring a 1.48 carat GIA certified untreated Colombian cushion-cut emerald flanked by a .91 and .98 carat old European-cut diamonds with GIAs stating .91 is G SI1, and .98 is H VS2. In 18k yellow gold. Center: 8mm tall, band: 1.6 - 3.1mm. Circa 1890
This is a fine gem-y emerald: it's saturated in that classic Colombian color, and with so few inclusions, it didn't need to be treated with oil. With two very lively antique diamonds as company, this ring will bring joy to anyone who wears it.
Diamond and gold mining has caused devastation in areas such as Africa, wreaking havoc on delicate ecosystems and communities. Choosing to go vintage, you are eliminating the need for more mining and lessening the demand for new diamonds.
