1978 Fine 2.2ct Emerald & 3.7ct Diamonds on 18ct Ring


An impressive and very finely made engagement or cocktail ring comprising of a central rectangular (emerald cut) natural deep green Colombian emerald.

The emerald weighs 2.2 carat, and is flanked by a starburst of around 3.7 carats of baguette and round brilliant cut diamonds. The stones have been set in a beautiful strut supported array, which, as well as the ring, are in 18 carat white gold (750).

The ring has the London Assay Gold Hallmark and the date stamp for 1978. There is also a jeweller’s mark inside a rhombus. It is difficult to read, but appears to end in RA. Both the colours of the emerald and the diamonds are very good. The diamonds are E to G. The clarity is also very good, with very minor inclusions.
