There is something magical about a fine quality emerald and the way it seems to glow, and here is a gorgeous antique emerald and diamond cluster ring, set with a magnificent natural Colombian emerald that really stands out.
Dating from the 1870’s, the emerald has such a fine green colour and measures 0.71 carats and is surrounded by nine early European cut diamonds that total 1.55 carats and really accentuate the emerald so well.
This emerald has such a fine green colour and is a perfect example why Colombian emeralds have long been regarded as the best in the world.
And the European cut diamonds have 58 facets like a modern diamond, however as they were cut by hand and technology was not around to cut the facets lower, these diamonds have different angle heights than its modern counterpart, and in recent years there has been such a resurgence in genuine antique cut diamonds.
Measuring 12.6mm by 12.mm from left to right, this antique emerald and diamond sits so well on the finger and would suit any finger including making an exceptional emerald and diamond engagement ring.
A spectacular antique emerald and diamond cluster ring that will is just perfect.
