Simplicity, harmony, and elegance. The color of gold and the soothing green of a quality emerald - there has never been a more perfect partnership! Two material things that exist in perfect harmony, made for each other. The mixture of the oxidized sterling adds interesting contrast and texture.
Size 6.5 hammer forged 18k gold and oxidized sterling silver ring. The band is a hand forged sterling silver oxidized band.

Throughout history and across all cultures, emeralds have been considered to be one of the most precious, magical, and therapeutic gemstones. They are said to counter the negative influence of Mercury over ones lives.
During the Roman Empire, when the stone was in high demand in jewelry, the majority of emeralds were sourced from Egypt. Not only was it the favorite stone of Venus, but also a symbol of status and vanity of the Roman ladies.
In the Byzantine and the early Christian periods the scriptures strengthened the stone’s symbolic resonance with imperial authority. Emeralds are mentioned twice in Revelations, once as one of the gems in the foundations of the Heavenly Jerusalem (21:19) and again as the appearance of the rainbow encircling the throne of the Lord (4:3).
According to Indian tradition, emerald dominates the brain of the native leading it towards the positive elements of air. It pours the rays of positive vision on the person along with strong intellect leading him towards a tranquil and successful life. It is suggested to be worn by diplomats, scientists, astrologers, teachers, architects medical personalities, doctors, businessmen, property dealers, publishers, accountants, engineers, writers, post officers, insurance officers and intellectuals. Emerald gemstone traditionally provides sense of understanding and empowers the vision of spirituality.
I take great pride that every one of pieces of jewelry is 100% legally compliant with the US Federal Trade Commissions definition of hand made jewelry (§ 23.3 Misuse of the terms "hand-made," "hand-polished," etc.)!
All of my silver and solders are alloyed by me from fine silver bullion and pure copper so there are no toxic "mystery metals" in my jewelry. Every item is hand forged from molten metal by traditional hammer and anvil methods. The only 2 things on my workbench that a roman silversmith would not recognize are a torch and an Ipod................
I offer a limited lifetime (the limit is my lifetime :-) and I have a lot of good years left)service guarantee. If you lose or break a stone I will be happy to replace it for the price (the price I pay) for the stone and shipping.
