"No other green reaches the splendor of the rich and distinguished emerald. Impossible to compare a green glass with this stone, absurd to name even the sea or a colourful parrot emerald." With these exuberant words, a popular non-fiction book of the first half of the 20th century describes the emerald. The green variety of beryl was already coveted in ancient Egypt - and the fascination with the gemstone has endured to this day. This ring from around 1990 presents a natural emerald in its center in the classic step cut. Upon closer inspection, one can see fine crystal inclusions inside the stone that attest to its natural formation, poetically referred to as "jardin" (French for "garden"). Accompanying the emerald are four brilliant-cut diamonds with a total weight of about 0.14 carats. The ring itself is made of yellow gold while the gemstones are set in bright white gold.

The emerald is a gemstone that is able to immediately captivate almost all gemstone lovers. Its wonderful and imperishable green makes the emerald a stone of hope, as well as it is considered the stone of wisdom and inspiration. It is said that Cleopatra adorned herself with emeralds to rejuvenate herself and to preserve her beauty, because according to ancient beliefs, inexhaustible grace and youth reside in the emerald. For thousands of years, the emerald has been one of the most prized gemstones in the world, and especially stones from the world-famous mines of Colombia enjoy a legendary reputation.
