Rated 4 out of 5 by QHomeShopper Love the emeralds
I have now purchased all 3 of these watches and like this one the best, then the Ruby and then sapphire. The emeralds in this watch sparkle and you can tell its green. Same with rubies but sapphires not as much. The black background just ruins the look that I'm sure they were going for. The band is OK, not great, but no issue with the clasps. I had to purchase an extender. Ecclissi needs to start selling adjustable bands/watches for all their customers. At this price point all of your customers should be able to adjust and wear their watch right out of the package.
All these watches were purchased on clearance but even then I think they're priced a little high. I would not recommend them at their QVC price. I've purchased these due to the wearability of the watches and the rarity of this type of gemstone watch as well as the gemstone weight.
Rated 3 out of 5 by considerthis "Pave'" Emerald Watch
I was happy to receive this watch. Emeralds are my favorite gem. I louped the gems with 10x magnification. They are not heavily included, and are a nice shade of green. However, they are not pave' set. They are gypsy set in a gunmetal background, which makes them appear darker. The gems are clearly green. If it had a deployment clasp, that would have been better. Calling this watch pave' is misleading, though.

I love the idea of this watch and I think it was well executed. It has a nice weight to it and is a good size. I would give five stars but I do think it was a bit overpriced. Overall though I think it is a quality product.

I love this watch. I purchased the same watch prior and had to return it due to a defect. I like knowing that I have 6.25 carats of emeralds in this watch. The watch band is so shiny and eye appealing. The attention to detail around the bezel and with the extra touches to the band design make this a watch I am truly proud to wear. Bravo Ecclissi.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Cape Jewel Beautiful yet subtle
I have to agree with naplescay, I don't know what everyone else doesn't like about this. First of all, I love mine, I think it is gorgeous. Second of all, please remember that most emeralds are somewhat cloudy, not clear and shiny like diamonds. Third of all, most gemstones have to be mounted with the back of the piece open to let the light in for sparkle. This is a watch face, they are set on a solid background. Personally, I am not a "bling" person, so I don't want sparkle. These definitely look like emeralds, I don't see black at all. When I wear it and someone is near me and notices it, they definitely see the green. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is because of the watch band, it isn't as heavy/substantial as the 2 other Ecclissi watches that I have. It is adequate, however, stays on just fine and is comfortable. This is my birthstone - if it or the ruby or sapphire are yours, live it up and treat yourself.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Shoppinglover Dark, darker, darkest...
I just received my watch this morning, and I must say that the vast majority of reviewers are right. The watch face is extremely dark, the emeralds are dark (with the exception of one or two of them), and there is absolutely no sparkle to this watch, not even in direct sunlight. I wouldn't mind spending this amount of money for a jeweled watch, especially for one done in emeralds, but not for one executed as poorly as this. This is going back as soon as I can get it to the post office. If you're considering whether or not to purchase this watch, you MUST read the reviews first so that you're not as disappointed as so many of us were.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Lainie49 Very disapointing
The face is so dark, you can't even tell they are emeralds, I really wanted to love this watch, but had to return it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by naplescay MY 2ND REVIEW
I WROTE A REVIEW SEVERAL DAYS AGO, WHICH FOR SOME REASON WAS NEVER PUBLISHED, SO I THOUGHT I WOULD TRY ONE MORE TIME. I RECEIVED THIS WATCH AFTER MISSING IT ON THE ORIGINAL AIRING AND HAVING TO GO ON WAIT LIST. MY THANKS TO WHOEVER RETURNED IT IN PRISTINE CONDITION. I LOVE IT. ALTHOUGH I DO AGREE THAT THE FACE IS DARK, IT HAS A VERY SUBTLE SPARKLE, WHICH VARIES IN INTENSITY IN DIFFERENT LIGHTING. THERE IS NO DOUBT IN MY MIND THAT THEY ARE GREEN EMERALDS. I ALSO FIND IT EASY TO READ THE TIME. I GUESS BEAUTY IS IN THE EYE OF THE BEHOLDER. IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR IN YOUR FACE BLING, THIS MAY NOT BE THE WATCH FOR YOU. IN MY OPINION, IT IS VERY UNIQUE AND CLASSY LOOKING. I HAVE HAD NO PROBLEM WITH OPENING AND CLOSING THE CLASP. AFTER REMiOVING THE TWO ADDITIONAL LINKS PROVIDED, IT FITS PERFECTLY ON MY 5 3/4" WRIST. IF YOU ARE ON WAIT LIST, I WOULD ENCOURAGE YOU NOT TO CANCEL AND TO DECIDE FOR YOURSELF WHETHER OR NOT THIS IS THE WATCH FOR YOU. I'M SO HAPPY THAT I DID!
