Cartier Colombian Emerald and Diamond Ring


This Colombian emerald and diamond ring by Cartier has incredible outsize presence, with over three-and-a-half carats in its beautiful center stone. The geometry of an emerald circle, inscribed in a canted frame of polished platinum, is enhanced by sparkling shoulders that are tightly-packed with diamond baguettes and flashing rounds, creating a statement of bold design for the hand.

Colombian emeralds are regarded as the finest in the world. The vivid, slightly bluish green of the top Colombian gems is created in part by the interaction of light with the trace element chromium, the ultra-rare atom that produces the hot fluorescent red of Burma rubies.
