Emeralds

The green of emeralds looks great in either the rich yellow of 22ct gold or the bright paleness of unplated 9ct white gold. These are pretty good quality stones as emeralds often have quite a lot going on in them and can be quite pale. I sculpted it in wax for casting and the claws tight up against each other was a real challenge, but I really liked the smoothness of the underside of the settings.

The green of emeralds looks great in either the rich yellow of 22ct gold or the bright paleness of unplated 9ct white gold. The emeralds in the triple ring are good quality stones with a good colour. I sculpted that ring it in wax for casting and the claws tight up against each other was a real challenge, but I really liked the smoothness of the underside of the settings. The details of the two emerald engagement rings in the photographs are as follows:
