About the Gemstone

About Siberian Mint Emerald

Russia, like Canada and Australia, is an enormous country with vast mineral reserves. Columbia is by far the world's largest producer of emeralds, and Russia accounts for just 1% of the world's emerald production. However, Russian emeralds are well -known for their outstanding color and amazing crystal clarity, as it's natural for emeralds to have fissures and fractures.

Emerald is mined near Ekaterinburg in Russia's Ural Mountains. Green gemstones were discovered in Ural in 1831. This gemstone was taken to Ekaterinburg (Yekaterinburg) for identification, which led to the discovery of the emerald mines.

In the 19th century, Russian emeralds were the property of the Russian Crown and not commercially exploited, but began to be commercially mined in 1832. At first, the term "Russian Emerald" was not very common with Western jewelers, gemologists, and laboratories, due to a variety of reasons such as the Cold War, during which the Country of Origin had to be changed for it to be commercially sellable.

Stone Information

Emerald is the most famous member of the beryl family. There are other green gems, like tourmaline and peridot, but emerald is the one that's always associated with the lushest landscapes and the richest greens. Ireland is the Emerald Isle. Seattle, in the US state of Washington, is the Emerald City. Thailand's most sacred religious icon is called the Emerald Buddha, even though it's carved from green jadeite. The first known emerald mines were in Egypt, dating from at least 330 BC into the 1700s. Cleopatra was known to have a passion for emerald, and used it in her royal adornments. As the gem of spring, emerald is the perfect choice as the birthstone for the month of May. It's also the gem of the twentieth and thirty-fifth wedding anniversaries.

Legend & Lore

Legends endowed the wearer with the ability to foresee the future when emerald was placed under the tongue, as well as to reveal truth and be protected against evil spells. Emerald was once also believed to cure diseases like cholera and malaria. Wearing an emerald was believed to reveal the truth or falseness of a lover's oath as well as make one an eloquent speaker.

Color

Emerald is the green to greenish blue variety of beryl, a mineral species that also includes aquamarine as well as beryls in other colors. Gem experts differ on the degree of green that makes one stone an emerald and another stone a less-expensive green beryl. Some people in the trade tend to give the name emerald to any green beryl colored by chromium. But to most gemologists, gemological laboratories, and colored stone dealers, it is more correct to call a stone green beryl when its color is "too light" for it to be classified as emerald.

Emerald

Cleaning

Some estimates state that 90 percent or more of emeralds are fracture-filled. Since the great majority of fashioned natural emeralds contain filled fractures, it's risky to clean them ultrasonically or with steam. Ultrasonic vibrations can weaken already-fractured stones, and hot steam can cause oil or unhardened resin to sweat out of fractures. Using warm, soapy water coupled with gentle scrubbing is the safest way to clean emeralds.

0.60 ct Siberian Mint Emerald & Diamond Accent Ring, 14K 3.8 5 9 9
nice ring The stone is perfect! The ring is really pretty even the accent diamonds sparkle. The center stone is a gorgeous teal green/blue that is breathtaking against the white gold I do wish it would have come in a nicer package though.. it is a gift and the box is only a simple cardboard square without any thing in it the ring comes in a small cloth bag . 05-04-15
Beautiful Emerald This is a five star ring because it is so unique. Although the green color is lighter than than the average emerald, it is definitely green. The color is soft and reminds me of spring. I think white gold sets it off beautifully; yellow gold would have been too heavy in appearance for this stone. In the video it looked smaller to me than it does in person. It has a nice presence on the hand, sort of a medium size. If you don't like large stones but want something that can be seen, this is it. I also like that it comes from a different part of the world than other emeralds; it makes this ring exotic. I recommend it. I am enjoying mine immensely! PS I chose " perfect for moms" but I really think it is a perfect gift for a wife, also. 03-28-15
LOVELY. . . OVC get more of a selection Two reasons I purched this ring. !. It can only be gotten from the siberian mines not anywhere else in the emerald mines, in the world. 2. the setting and the sparkling diamonds are just beautiful. Congrats who desinged this ring. Now my problem! There is not another necklace, or bracelet, from these mines, to be purchased on QVC. I would have purchased them, for sure, if they were available. QVC needs to do something about that, indeed. 03-07-15
Emerald has too Many Inclusions I wanted to like this ring but the emerald had way too many inclusions to the point that it looked like it was black and scratched. Sadly had to send it back. 03-02-15
Not quite I got this as a replacement wedding ring and at the moment I will stick with what I have. It is a "cute" little ring but even on clearance for $299 not worth the price. It is small. Also didn't fit on top of my band. Will be returning sadly....will look for a little bigger ring! 01-28-15
Love The Stone This is a very lovely ring. I bought it primarily for the siberian emerald stone and it is a very nice quality stone. The reason for the four star instead of five is due to the ring itself is very light weight and the diamond accents are just ok, not terrible but they do not sparkle. I will be keeping it because I love the stone and the clearance price is a pretty good deal. If you are in the market for a good siberian emerald I would grab it 01-10-15
Beauty! This ring is true beauty. The emerald is a bright mint green and fairly clear for emerald. It fits true to size and has a nice presence on the hand. I bought it as a pinky ring and it's perfect. 11-18-14
Not For Me My husband ordered this for me and we agreed for the price it's lackluster. The stone is ok, not great. The band is very SMALL and the ring itself runs small. The diamond accents are very difficult to see. I have tons of jewelry and love QVC, but this one is going back. In my opinion nowhere close to being worth the price. 09-05-13
Great color! Beautiful ring! The color is similar to an apatite with bit more green tint. The ring has a nice presence on the hand. This would be a nice addition for those emerald lovers out there! 07-25-13
