The other emerald
Green at its finest
The deep green color of emerald gemstones is quite rightly celebrated. The very best have a verdant, forest-green hue that seems to almost glow. Unfortunately, the gemstone industry has gotten over excited and has marketed emeralds to the point of unaffordability. But did you know there’s a stone out there that not only rivals an emerald’s color it can actually surpass it? That gemstone is known as chrome diopside — the “other” emerald.
The Green in Bloom Ring features ‘petals’ of chrome diopside gemstones in marquise, teardrop and round cuts, so you can see for yourself how it fares against its more marketed and higher-priced cousin. The color is clear and bright, possessing that unmistakable green glow that gives value to any stone this color. We’ve added a dash of dazzle by surrounding these chrome diopside stones with a white rounds and set them in a sterling silver ring. And, the price? Let’s just say the Green in Bloom Ring gives you the lush rich color of emeralds for not a whole lot of green.
