“Nothing greens greener,” is how Roman historian Pliny the Elder described emerald gemstones in his “Natural History” text. But that was 2,000 years ago, when the raw volcanic materials that would eventually form Helenite were still brewing in the belly of Mount St Helens. The volcano finally erupted in 1980, filling the sky with fire. Soon after, we discovered that its explosive contents could be heated to form a powerfully green new stone, known as Helenite.
The Green Goddess Ring shows Helenite in all its glory. This generous 23 total carat stone is prong set with just a sprinkling of lab-created DiamondAura®, and its diamond cut invites plenty of light to play off the verdant shade inside the stone. In fact, there’s so much green here that Pliny would surely be tempted to rewrite his history, even more so if he knew we were selling it at this price
