This Precious Gem Has Been Mounted in a Modern 18 Karat Gold Ring. Weight 3.5 carats

Emeralds are a grass-green variety of beryl that are highly valued as a precious gemstone. The name comes indirectly from the Greek smaragdos, a name that seems to have been given to a number of stones having little in common except their green color. Many virtues were formerly ascribed to emeralds. When worn, the stone was held to be a preservative against epilepsy, and when held in the mouth it was believed to be a cure for dysentery. It was supposed to assist women at childbirth, to drive away evil spirits, and to preserve the chastity of the wearer. Administered internally, it was reputed to have great medicinal value. Its refreshing green color was said to be good for the eyesight. The physical properties of emerald are essentially the same as those of beryl. Its refractive and dispersive powers are not high, so that cut stones display little brilliancy or fire. The magnificent color that gives extraordinary value to this gem is probably due to small amounts of chromium.

The natural beauty of this gorgeous gemstone is allowed to shine. The reserved gold setting enhances the green color without distracting from the centerpiece. This ring is a classic, combining two of the most prized substances known to man: gold and emeralds.
