Colombian Emeralds carry a deep-rooted history dating back to the pre-Columbian era, treasured by ancient civilizations and admired by Spanish conquistadors, who introduced these gems to Europe and the wider world. This legacy contributes to the appeal of the stone, encapsulating centuries of fascination, veneration, and desire.
The emerald originates from the heart of Colombia's major mines: Muzo, Coscuez, and Chivor, each lending distinct characteristics to their yield. Over time, mining methods have evolved from traditional tunneling and open-pit excavation towards more sustainable practices, protecting the environment while securing the future of these precious gems.
A distinguishing feature of this 10.97-carat emerald is its 'Minor Oil' treatment, denoting only minimal oiling to enhance clarity and appearance - a common practice in the emerald world to mask natural fissures and inclusions. A 'Minor Oil' emerald, however, stands apart as a testament to its high quality and limited need for enhancement, increasing its desirability among collectors and aficionados.
In conclusion, this 20K Gold Ring featuring a 10.97 carat Step Cut Minor Oil Colombian Emerald is an emblem of natural beauty, historical fascination, and masterful craftsmanship.
