Unlike many dealers we deal only in independently-certified emeralds so you can choose with the confidence that what you read about our stones is not our opinion but that of a certification laboratory with over 35 years of experience and reputation.
When it comes to choosing a gemstone you should be guided first by the color and shape that you want for your jewelry. Although certain shapes/colors/tones are considered “better”, and therefore are more expensive, you should focus on what makes you happy.
But, if you seek classical emerald quality for that once in a lifetime purchase, and yet feel overwhelmed by everything you need to learn to assess an emerald, we’re here to help. We combine all the quality factors — color (hue, saturation, and tone), clarity, and enhancement into a single rating: Our opinion:
- Good: A perfectly good gemstone at a great price. You won’t be disappointed with this, we promise.
- Better: Just what it says on the tin: A better quality gemstone if you’re able to pay a bit more.
- Best: Our best emeralds: With superior levels of color and/or clarity these will really stand out.
- Wow!: A superlative product combining the best levels of all color factors, exceptional clarity, and beautiful cutting. We don’t always have these in stock, and reserve this classification for the few stones we find that both have great certification and have a fire about them that make us go “Wow!”.
Armed with this rating all you have to do is choose the shape/cut you prefer, and the size/weight you want and we’ll rush it to your door.
