This ring is made to order- please note that the ring in the photos is sold. Your emerald ring will be made to order for you. Please see my shop announcement for my current production time. Or, contact me via the shop or by email at treloar [!at] telus.net
The band is a hammered round profile, sized to fit your finger. It is polished to a smooth, high shine finish on the inside. In the photos, the ring is shown with a hammered texture. Brushed/matte or high shine are also available. You may choose 14k or 18k gold from this listing, in rose, white, or yellow.
The final photos show my current parcel of emeralds. These emeralds are uncut and untreated- it is difficult to find emeralds that are not oiled or otherwise treated, but these crystals are exactly as they formed. The lighting in the photo of the raw emeralds is a touch low- I would say these stones are livelier and brighter in real life. Their appearance, like all uncut gemstones, varies according to the light they are viewed in.
Like the vast majority of natural emeralds, these stones have some inclusions. To find an emerald with no inclusions is next to impossible. The inclusions in the stones add to their natural and unique appearance. The stones are translucent, and are a classic mid-deep emerald green colour. The natural form is geometric and faceted, with vertical striations.
Please choose your emerald from the following:
1. .75 carats 5 x 5mm SOLD
2. .70 carats 4 x 4.5mm
3. .50 carats 4.5 x 3.5mm
4. .95 carats 4.5 x 5mm
5. 1.85 carats 8.5 x 5mm
6. 1.00 carats 8 x 4.5mm
7. 1.60 carats 8 x 5mm
8. 1.10 carats 5 x 5.5mm SOLD
9. .95 carats 7 x 4mm
10. 1.05 carats 7.5 x 4mm
11. 1.25 carats 7 x 6mm
12. 1.10 carats 5.5 x 6mm
13. .90 carats 4.5 x 5.5mm
Because I hand-built each of these rings from raw materials in my studio, any variation on the ring you see in the photos is available. I can make the bezel smooth, if you prefer that instead of the textured bezel.
As well as being able to choose your band texture for this piece, you can also request a different sort of a band- wider, flat/rectangular profile, and half-round/domed bands are also available, at various price point.
I can also build your ring in platinum or palladium.
Want smaller raw diamonds included in the composition, or perhaps some tiny cut diamonds? Anything is possible. Get in touch for the quote on your dream raw emerald ring.
I also have uncut, untreated emeralds in larger sizes. Just ask- message me through the shop, or at treloar [!at] telus.net

IMPORTANT: When purchasing from Specimental, please be aware of and in agreement with the Shop Policies- please read them here: https://www.etsy.com/ca/shop/Specimental?ref=seller-platform-mcnav#policies This section contains important information about production, shipping, sales taxes, and returns/exchanges. Have questions? Contact me through the shop, or at treloar [!at] telus.net
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
I am always open to hearing your design ideas. Please contact me through the shop, or at email@example.com to discuss design possibilities.
If you are unsure of your ring size, the best way to be sized accurately is by visiting two commercial jewelers. Please ensure they size you using their thin sizing tools- not the wide band sizing tools, nor by having you try on rings from their display.
If any questions arise around being properly sized, I am always happy to help- contact me through the shop, or at firstname.lastname@example.org
I don’t provide a gift wrapping service. Rings and earrings ship in jewelry boxes that are hot foil stamped with the Specimental logo.
If the person for whom you are purchasing the piece shares your address, please be aware of the following: International export law dictates that the detailed contents of packages, and their value, be clearly marked on the outside of the package. This means that if they see the package before you do, they can easily tell what they are being gifted with.
Need secrecy for this delivery? The very best option is to have your package held for you at your closest Fed Ex store- if you are unsure of its location, I'm happy to help.
Our hands are busy objects, and any ring worn on a finger can become accidentally damaged. All rings need regular maintenance. Make sure you are buying your raw diamond ring from a jeweler with the knowledge and experience needed to ensure your stone stays put. Ask them about their warranty and their repair/upkeep policy. Look at how frequently they work with raw diamonds, and assess whether they have the technical experience to create a ring that will last your lifetime.
I stand behind each piece of jewellery I make. If something goes wrong with your ring, at any time- you slam your finger in a drawer and crush the band, you break a prong, you smash and crack your stone- you can count on me to support you with the repair.
My gold is all recycled- the metal plant I purchase it from has been in business for over 100 years. They smelt their metals to the highest environmental standards, to cause the least impact on the environment. They do not deal with newly mined metals, as these metals cause much greater destruction to the environment.
There is no visible difference between recycled metals and newly-mined metals. There is also no difference as far as the karat of the metals go- 18k recycled gold is exactly the same in constitution as 18k newly mined gold. The vast majority of my clients prefer their metals recycled, as environmental impact is of concern when choosing the perfect piece of jewelry.
I can use your heirloom stones in a new design. The stones must be pulled from their settings and checked for stability by a professional jeweler prior to shipping them to me. I cannot recycle your gold. I am not set up to smelt gold in the studio, so am not able to melt down your old gold pieces for you.
My current production times are listed in my shop announcement. If you need something more quickly, please get in touch via the shop, or at email@example.com
Depending upon my work and family schedule, I am happy to accommodate your rush orders. There is no additional charge for a rush order. However, please do get in touch prior to ordering to discuss your deadline with me.
Yes! All of my pieces are completely hand fabricated in the studio by me, from raw materials. I am able to create any of my designs with any stone, in any composition. In short, you can have your ring absolutely any way you like it. Contact me through the shop, or via firstname.lastname@example.org to get the discussion around your perfect piece of jewelry started.
A raw diamond is an exceptionally difficult stone to set properly. Their unique shape means that a custom setting needs to be fabricated for each and every stone. The way in which the setting is closed around the diamond must be approached in a very particular fashion.
I began setting these stones into my rings in 2009, when only a small handful of jewelers were working with this type of stone. As the appeal of raw diamonds has exploded, countless numbers of jewelers are now incorporating them into their designs. I have set thousands of raw diamonds into my pieces since then.
