The 4Cs of Emeralds
As with other stones, understanding what makes each emerald valuable is essential to understanding its value and picking the perfect emerald wedding ring. While it can require a well-trained eye to recognize the subtle differences between emeralds, you can better decide what areas you’re willing to sacrifice to get the perfect ring by understanding what they are.
Among the spectrum of emeralds, the most valuable colours are bluish-green to pure green, with vivid saturation and a lighter tone. The most sought-after emeralds are highly transparent with an evenly distributed colour. If the emerald’s hue is too yellow or blue, the stone is not an emerald but a different variety of beryl, and its value drops accordingly.
Emerald appearance is sometimes associated with its mine location. Colombian emeralds are said to have a warmer and more intense pure green colour. Zambian emeralds are said to have a cooler, more blue-green colour. Despite these theories, the truth is that emerald appearance overlaps between sources.
Most emeralds have inclusions that are visible to the unaided eye. As a result, purchasers and some consumers accept the presence of inclusions in emeralds. Because most emeralds contain these inclusions, eye-clean emeralds are precious. Emerald inclusions are described as looking mossy or garden-like.
For emeralds, transparency and clarity are closely linked. The trade generally accepts unaided eye-visible inclusions in high-quality emeralds. However, when inclusions negatively affect openness and clarity, the emerald’s value falls dramatically.
Cutting emeralds is particularly difficult due to four specific characteristics. First, because nearly all emeralds have fissures, the cutter must design the cut to minimize the negative impact of those fractures on the finished emerald.
Emeralds are a brittle gem. As a result, they are vulnerable to damage during cutting, polishing, and setting or even during daily use. Properly cutting an emerald can protect against damage because the vulnerable corners are faceted and are a relatively safe place for prongs.
Because colour is so critical to the overall value of an emerald, the way the emerald is cut must maximize the effect of hue, tone, and saturation. The colour of the emerald can be impacted by adjusting the proportions of the gem, the number of facets, the depth of the cut, and the size of the table.
Fourth, many emeralds’ yellow-green to blue-green dichroism encourages the cutter to face the table perpendicular to the emerald’s length. As a result, the blue-green that emerald lovers seek is brought to the fore.
Emeralds come in a wide range of sizes. The smallest emeralds range from 1 mm to 5 mm, with weights ranging from 0.02 to 0.50 carats, while 1 to 5 carat emeralds are popular as centre stones. More famous pieces of jewellery can include emeralds that weigh over 20 carats.
With all else being equal, the price of an emerald can rise dramatically as its size increases.
