the story

This 14 karat white gold ring from circa 1950s-1960s features a pear shaped emerald at center measuring approximately 7.75 carats.  The emerald is a beautiful shade of bright green with just the slightest hint of blue.  The color is saturated and even throughout the stone making it feel like a piece of candy.  It's surrounded by 18 vintage full cut diamonds with tons of sparkle, which total approximately 0.72 carats in diamond weight.

All of the stones are set in 4-prong settings giving the ring an open, airy quality.  The diamonds are set in white gold while the emerald is set in yellow, a common practice in vintage jewelry thought to bring the best companion metal to the stones color. 

A truly spectacular ring, vintage emerald pieces like this are getting harder and harder to find.  Measuring 0.8 inches tall x 0.75 inches wide at center, it looks and feels amazing when worn, it's sure to be your families new favorite heirloom.
