Buy Emerald Stone


Like the diamond and other gemstones, emeralds can be judged according to the 4Cs: color, cut, clarity, and carat weight. These gems are highly prized, and intensely colored ones can be quite rare, so make sure that you visit a trusted AGS jeweler who can help you make an informed investment.

Most gemologists agree that it all comes down to color when purchasing an emerald. Color should be evenly distributed and not too dark. Rare emeralds will appear as a deep green-blue, while lighter colored gemstones are more common (and therefore, often more reasonably priced).

Unlike some gemstones, which can maintain a relatively standard price range no matter the size, you will see a wide price range between smaller emeralds and larger ones. Some of the most famous emeralds in private collections or museums today are literally hundreds of carats and are considered to be priceless. Angelina Jolie, Elizabeth Taylor, and the British monarchy all have worn famously large and beautiful emerald gemstone jewelry.

The 4Cs are not a fixed set of standards, but various ranges. There are three separate ranges for color alone with hue, tone, and saturation. Clarity, cut, and carat weight all have their own ranges, and getting the best possible result from each is very low odds. It is possible, but very rare to find emeralds (or any other gem for that matter) that are perfect at any weight. These types of emeralds are also so expensive that only a select few people can afford them. As a result, it is imperative to understand the 4Cs of emeralds to figure out what you would like and what you can afford.

Notice that while all the emeralds above have similar prices and cuts, their color, clarity, and carat weight all vary. This is how having the varying factors of the 4Cs can change overall price dramatically in equal sizes.

Hue is what most people understand as color. Emeralds do not have a wide range of colors. The definition of emerald requires a green color. Not yellow, orange, or blue, but green. Modified greens are acceptable too, like bluish green and slightly yellowish green. Slightly being the key word since too much yellow and the emerald is no longer considered an emerald, but green beryl instead.

Like how the emerald hues are limited, the tone is too. An emerald must have a medium light tone to qualify as an emerald and not green beryl. Dark emeralds do not have this problem, though if they are so dark they are black and are no longer emeralds. Also worth noting is that very light and very dark tones mess with our perception of color. Even though all the colors below are the same color with full saturation, they appear to be different colors.

For the best possible emerald color, a bluish green is the most desirable color. Ideally a medium tone is desired in order for the color to be shown as clearly as possible. Lastly, the saturation needs to be a vivid green instead of a desaturated gray. The vast majority of dealers do not bother stocking gems with a heavily desaturated color.

Emeralds are near-always included, so finding one with high clarity runs for a premium roughly three times the amount of a comparable looking fracture-filled emerald. This can increase in larger emeralds, since larger sizes are exponentially scarce.

Furthermore, emeralds can have a lot of stuff in them, with the French referring to it as a . They can have other crystalline minerals inside, as well as liquid, solid, and gas inclusions. It is very common to see many of these inclusions combined in different ways.

Cuts partially determine the clarity of a gem, but only through the decisions of the gem cutter. Additionally, the cutter works with what mother nature created with the gem. If the emerald formed with an extreme amount of inclusions, there is only so much the cutter can do to work with this.

The price of emeralds does not increase at a fixed rate, like $1,000 for one carat, $2,000 for two carat, $3,000 for 3 carats, etc. The price increase is more like
