This is an 18k solid gold ring with a light-green emerald. The design is simple but pretty with a single row of tiny gold balls around the circumference of the band.
The natural (un-oiled) emerald in this ring is from Nigeria which is a lessor known locality of emerald production. The stone has light-green color and is clean and bright with almost no flaws or inclusions. Most emeralds have inclusions such as veils that many producers “fix” by infusing with oil or other material to reduce their appearance. This material is does not have the deep saturated color of Colombian or Brazilian Emerald but it is very clean and bright.
The ring at its widest point is approx. 3/16” wide (at the front – top to bottom) and the band is approx. 1/8” wide at the back.
