Story

Ever wonder what is the origin of the expression “green with envy”? Well, it seems that somehow an emerald had to have been involved because it is virtually impossible to imagine seeing such a gem and not be coveting it immediately.

Here an emerald cut natural emerald of an estimated 1.02 carats puts us on alert. A rich and vibrant fine medium coloration draws the eye as a moth to light. An exquisite platinum mounting does justice to the alluring gem with good clarity. Fine attention to detail and precise craftsmanship are quickly apparent.

The delicate touch of mille grain accents and precision open work place this ring in a category of its own. A mix of two (2) brilliant and two (2) single cut diamonds of an estimated total of .05 carats brings with it a hint of sparkle. Please note that the entire band is embellished with an ornate pattern.

Date: Circa mid 20th century.

Historical Note: The ring was retailed by William Barthman Ltd. of New York, a fine jewelry firm established in 1884. The company continues to be a purveyor of fine jewels and watches to this day.
