Tips about How to buy genuine emerald jewelry:

With my experience in the emeralds and jewelry business, I can give you some advice on what your best option would be in buying genuine emerald jewelry or any kind of jewelry with these beautiful green gems, but Knowledge and experience takes time; so do not expect to become an expert with some helpful tips.

With the presence of several Online retailers offering single emeralds and jewelry, it is difficult to know what your best option is. Some pieces are affordable while others are quite expensive. Even if you are in a jewelry store with a honest sales person and have the item in your hands, if you are not an expert in gemstones, it’s not easy to make the right decision.

Professional salespeople are seldom knowledgeable as to the details of a good quality emerald. Their goal is only to make the sale by convincing you with "big discounts" that you are making a big deal. Of course, price and budget are important and will determine the quality gem you will eventually purchase.

You can to buy an opaque stone for a lot less than an almost perfectly transparent natural, mined emerald. Sometimes the best emerald for you is not what I think it is the best for me, it depends of your taste and budget.

Unlike in diamonds, color in emeralds is the most relevant feature but a dark emerald is usually dull because of the strong saturation of chromium and sometimes also vanadium are blocking the gemstone’s sparkling comes up. Don’t expect to find natural emeralds that are completely free of inclusions, they are natural stones, so you should expect flaws or inclusions. 90% of most gems are heavily included.

Natural emeralds are never free of inclusions like other clear gemstones, such as tanzanite or aquamarine. ‘Clarity feature’ in gems refers to the inclusions and flaws in an emerald. Sometimes invisible to the unaided eye, these are the ‘unique fingerprints’ of all natural gemstones and "proof of authenticity".
The higher carats in the precious gemstones, the higher the price. However, if the caratage is high, but other features like color, tone and cut are not superior, even a large emerald may not be expensive.
