Colombian emerald and diamond ring from the Art Deco period

Here is a spectacular natural Colombian emerald set into an equally spectacular setting that was all made during the Art Deco period of the 1920's.

Hand made in platinum, the detail in this ring is so exquisite and highlights the quality and fine detail that can only be achieved by using platinum. Whereas gold can be drawn into quite a fine wire, platinum can go so much finer and allows for the incredible detail on the side of the ring that is so captivating.

However it is the truly magnificent and incredible quality of the emerald that steals the show. For centuries, Colombian emeralds have been regarded as the best in the world, and this Colombian emerald truly showcases this. With such an incredible and intense colour, matched with a superb clarity, this is one of the finest emeralds around and will take your breath away when you see it in any light. This emerald is so incredible and combine it with it being all made and set during the 1920's and this is truly one fabulous ring.

The emerald measures 2.84 carats and even the way the claws were made to not only securely hold the emerald in place, but make a feature as though they are grabbing and holding the emerald aloft.

Highlighted with sixteen diamonds on each side that are set into the most beautiful setting, the diamonds total 0.28 carats and highlight the emerald as well as the design of the ring.

From every angle, there is no doubt that this is a spectacular Art Deco ring of the finest quality.

Colombian emerald and diamond ring from the Art Deco period

This Art Deco emerald and diamond ring was hand made in platinum in the 1920's. Set with a magnificent natural Colombian emerald that measures 2.84 carats, it is also set with thirty two diamonds.

A brief history of Colombian emeralds.

For over 4,000 years Colombia has been home to the world’s finest emeralds. Today, Colombia still accounts for between 70 to 90% of the world’s emerald supply. Geologically speaking, Colombian emeralds are found in sedimentary rocks rather than igneous resulting in a fine green colour with excellent transparency. While all natural emeralds will have inclusions, a fine quality Colombian emerald will have less than those from other countries as well as excellent transparency allowing you to see right through the stone. Combine this with an intense green, and it is easy to see why Colombian emeralds have been regarded so highly throughout the ages.
