While clarity plays a significant role in valuing a diamond, in emeralds, however, inclusions are to be expected. According to the Gemological Institute of America (GIA), clarity is important, but inclusions are tolerated more in emeralds than virtually any other gem. The GIA offers on their reports, “Due to their growth conditions in nature and recovery methods, most emeralds contain surface reaching features. For this reason, clarity enhancement is a common trade practice.” Indeed, inclusions can be found in 99% of natural emeralds. The inclusions are formed of gases, other minerals and crystals, and liquids that emeralds take on during the crystallization process and are often viewed as desirable features. They are known as jardin (French for garden) in the trade, and can create attractive patterns, making no two stones the same, which in turn can increase the value of the gem.

This elegant Emerald and Diamond Cocktail Ring, made in the 21st century, 2018, features a sizeable green square cushion-cut emerald weighing an estimated 14.25 carats. The exact origin is unknown but estimated as African. Today, the African continent is second only to South America in production, with mines in Zambia, Zimbabwe, Madagascar, and Nigeria. Each of these locales typically produces a certain color, size, and clarity. The most desirable emerald colors are bluish green to pure green, with vivid color saturation and tone that is not too dark. The emerald is set in 18K white gold held 4 prongs and surrounded with a square halo of 16 round brilliant-cut diamonds weighing an approximate total of 2.40 carats. Each diamond is estimated to be 0.15 carat, most with H-I color and SI clarity.

The cushion cut is a square cut with rounded corners, much like a pillow, hence the name. The cushion’s soft curves and larger facets give the gem a broader, more relaxed shape with a lush and opulent feel. Such a cut is ideal for an engagement ring with its romantic old-world charm. The modern-day cushion cut owes its faceting design to an antique diamond cut known as the old mine cut which dates to the 1700s. While the size of this stone might first suggest cocktail ring, it likewise would perform beautifully as an unforgettable engagement ring. One of Victoria Beckham’s many engagement rings is a similarly proportioned cushion-cut emerald with a diamond halo. The rich green hue of an emerald represents new beginnings, thus offering an emerald to the one you love shows your intentions for a rich new life filled with love.

Size US 5, can be resized. Square emerald weight approx. 14.25 carats total, estimated natural and of African origin. 16 round diamond accents weighing approx. 2.40 carats total, 0.15 carat each; estimated H-I color, SI clarity. Overall weight is approx. 12.09 grams, made in 18k white gold. Circa 2018.
