When it comes to beauty, Siberian imperial diopside packs a powerful punch. It boasts nearly double the refractive index of emerald (which is jeweler’s code for double the sparkle) and some have described it as having the color “that emeralds only dream about.” Often called “Siberian Emerald,” this gorgeous and relatively new-to-the-scene forest green beauty is mined from the frozen Siberian tundra.
This is where you travel by train for days and see nothing but white from your window. But, in the grand tradition of securing hidden treasures buried in the most remote places, we bring you the Siberian Imperial Diopside Ring. Almost three total carats of the illusive green ice princess glows emerald green from a setting of sterling silver. And, while this gemstone comes from an almost unaccessible climate, we’ve made sure to give it a very accessible price.
