Belle Époque Bailey Banks & Biddle 1.18 Carat Colombian Emerald Diamond Ring


This unique Belle Epoque, ca. 1980 Colombian emerald diamond 3 stone ring, features one centrally set beautiful forest green emerald weighing 1.18 carats. The emerald is accompanied by a report from the AGL stating that the origin is Columbia and that treatment/enhancement is NONE. This grade is extremely rare and makes for a true collectible, since 99 percent of all emeralds are treated to a certain degree in one form or another. Up until the end of last century emeralds were mostly treated by natural oils in order to hide certain inclusions and enhance the visual optics. This emerald was chosen not to be treated at all, as the few natural inclusions did not have any impact on its appearance. As side stones the jeweler decided to use to matching well cut bright and white Old European cut diamonds, weighing 0.97 and 0.93 carats. The color is approximately G and the clarity VS. All 3 gemstones are meticulously set it beautifully well handcrafted 18 Karat ring mount, held by 7 ( the emerald respectively by 8 ) eagle claw prongs. The renown American jeweler and manufacturer Bailey Banks & Biddle dates back to 1832 where he opened shop in Philadelphia , Pennsylvania. He was well known for using the finest gemstones for his engagement rings and this ring is a perfect example Size 8, can be sized AGL Certified, No Oil 1.18 Carats, 6.81 x 6.40 x 3.89 mm 2 Old European Cut Diamonds, 0.93 cts and 0.97 cts
