Amazing!

I just received this ring and it is even better than I expected! The picture does not do the stone justice. I know they will vary but the stone in my ring is a a much deeper green than the website shows. The band is very solid and a nice, medium thickness that is comfortable to wear and I have small hands. Thank you for this amazing ring at at even more amazing price!

World's most important emerald still missing

10 carats of emerald

In Ancient Peru, the Incas worshipped Umiña, the goddess of health. To celebrate the goddess, the Incas carved her shape from the biggest and greenest emerald crystal ever seen, and referred to all smaller emeralds as the children of Umiña. If this emerald was around today, it would be worth tens of millions of dollars.

The reason it's not around is that when the Conquistadors came a-conquering, they quickly earned a reputation for ransacking Incan temples and making off with precious gemstones, so the Incan priests wisely hid the Umiña emerald in a secret location. To this day, she's never been found.

We shed a tear for the world's greatest lost emerald with one of our own. The Umiña Teardrop Emerald is a gorgeous green enhanced emerald in a dramatic teardrop cut. Our Umiña Teardrop emerald may not be the same size as the original, but it's still a generous 10-carats of pure emerald. Just like the original, our Umiña emerald can't be won by conquest.
