With such an unusual and striking combination of stones and colors, the composition of these Contemporary Zambian Emerald Diamond Halo Button Earrings, made in the 21st century, immediately draws us in. The earrings are crafted in 18K white gold and feature two round faceted green emeralds, beautifully matched with an estimated total weight of 1.93 carats (approximately 0.96/0.97 carats apiece). The emeralds are accompanied by a report from GCi Lab Gemological Consultancy stating that they are round mixed-cut natural beryl-type emeralds of Zambian origin with indications of minor clarity enhancement. The mixed cut combines the brilliant cut and the step cut and is a standard cut for the emerald. The crown of the emerald is typically brilliant cut to enhance the sparkle, and the pavilion is a step cut to minimize waste.

Zambians have become increasingly popular in recent years. One reason for this is their extremely high quality and unique appearance. Zambian emeralds get their beautiful intense green color from the presence of chromium, iron, and beryllium in the mineral beryl, which adds to the overall depth of the stone and results in its distinctive shade that ranges from light to dark green and slightly bluish to bluish green. Typically, Zambian emeralds tend to have a much higher iron content than other emeralds, resulting in a more robust structure, often measuring higher on the Mohs hardness scale with a 7.5-8. In addition, it is common for emeralds to be clarity-enhanced like these featured stones, as most emeralds contain surface-reaching features due to their natural growth conditions and recovery methods.

The emeralds are accented within this exquisite design that takes the concept of the diamond halo to another level. The immediate surround comprises 48 fancy yellow round-brilliant diamonds with an estimated weight of 0.17carats of VS+ clarity. The razor-thin halo is pavé set with white gold prongs, tightly hugging and highlighting the emeralds with a compelling and colorful radiant sparkle. The yellow diamond halo is further surrounded by a double halo of 52 white briolette diamonds of superb G color and VS clarity, with an estimated total weight of 15.57 carats. The aesthetic of a briolette-cut diamond is genuinely arresting and allows the viewer to admire a diamond's beauty from every angle. The briolette diamond has no table, crown, or pavilion and is set uniquely from wire thread through a fine hole drilled at the top, so it can move freely and catch the light evocatively.

Emerald signifies abundance, prosperity, and growth within all aspects of life, primarily as expressed in nature. The abundant gemstone offering in this floral composition is positively bursting with texture, sparkle, color, and quality. Each gemstone plays with light beautifully in its unique way. The fanfare continues on the reverse of the pair, designed for pierced ears, outfitted with posts and hinged omega backs. The backings are adorned with a unique detail reserved just for the wearer of white pavé diamonds with an estimated weight of 0.20cts of superb G color and VS clarity. Every time you take these earrings on and off, you will have a breathtaking private moment.

Each earring measures approximately 1" in diameter. 2 Zambian emeralds weigh around. 1.93 carats total, accompanied by a GCi certificate. 52 Briolette diamonds weighing approx: 15.57 carats total, estimated G color, VS clarity. Forty-eight fancy yellow diamonds weigh approx. 0.17 carats, estimated VS+ clarity. Smaller white diamond paves approx. 0.20 carats total, estimated G color, VS clarity. Overall weight approx. 7.19 grams, made in 18k white gold. Circa 21st Century.
