The ring’s shank and setting are crafted from the finest 18K gold, whose value and purity are reflected in its enduring luster and warm tone. This piece is a treasure that marries the grandeur of Golconda’s past with the natural beauty of Zambian emeralds, all set in the timeless elegance of 18K gold. 

Zambian Emeralds are coveted for their unparalleled quality and the unique mineral composition that gives rise to their striking green hue. The journey of these gems from obscurity to global acclaim began with their discovery in the 1920s, but it wasn’t until the latter half of the 20th century that their true value was recognized. Zambia’s Kagem mine is particularly noteworthy, having produced some of the most remarkable emeralds known to the world, such as the “Inkalamu” or “Lion Emerald.” Despite their robustness, with a Mohs hardness rating of 7.5 to 8, emeralds are inherently brittle, necessitating skilled craftsmanship to shape them without damage. The emerald cut, renowned for its beveled edges and rectangular form, is a testament to the gem’s storied past, designed to showcase its splendor while minimizing potential fractures. Revered throughout history, emeralds have adorned the crowns of royalty and have been immortalized in ancient lore, representing the epitome of power and timeless beauty.

Old Golconda old European cut diamonds are treasured for their historical significance and exceptional craftsmanship. Originating from the legendary Golconda mines in India, these diamonds are known for their pure and colorless quality, often classified as Type IIa, which is chemically the purest form of diamond. The Old European Cut is a specific style of diamond cutting that was popular from 1890 to 1930. These diamonds are characterized by their round shape, high crown, deep pavilion, and large facets, which produce a distinctive sparkle with a soft, warm glow. Unlike modern diamonds that are cut with precision machinery, Old European Cut diamonds were cut by hand, giving each stone a unique charm and slightly asymmetrical appearance. They are rare because the Golconda mines were depleted over time, and the art of hand-cutting diamonds in this old style has largely been replaced by modern cutting techniques. This makes Old European Cut diamonds from Golconda not only rare but also highly sought after by collectors and enthusiasts who appreciate the historical value and unique beauty of these gems.
