This gem is a representation of the exquisite high standards of our brand. To follow the essence of our history, is to continue to create or discover one of a kind treasures that are not attainable by many but befall a treasure to some.” The co-owners hosted an hour long press conference for their invited guests to witness the unveiling of THE IMPERIAL EMERALD: a one of a kind, 206 carat, unenhanced Colombian Emerald.
The Imperial Emerald has been praised with the highest grade certificates, from global gemological entities that are highly regarded as the authority in the industry. The certificates contain extensive special comments by all the labs which certified it including; Gubelin, AGL, GIA, C. Dunaigre Consulting, and GRS. Additionally, it has also received a Gem Portrait by Gubelin, a JewelFolio by AGL, and Monograph by the GIA. Each of these is a book made by each lab which is reserved only for extremely rare and exceptional stones.
Emeralds are coveted gemstones, and have been throughout history; in fact a truly fine emerald may be even more valuable than a diamond of the same size. These gems range in size from very small to very large, however the rarity of finding one of this magnitude is rather exceptional. Colombian emeralds set the highest standards of quality for all emeralds, which are differentiated from other stones by the quality of their color: a shining green without any bluish tint. They are also prized for their transparency, crystallization and fire. The green color that this gem possesses is generally considered more desirable and the slight natural mineral inclusions add to the stone's character.
