Oval Trapiche Emerald Pendant


A rare crystal. A polished trapiche emerald slice, in an open prong setting. Mined as early as 330 BC, emeralds were cherished by Cleopatra. The rarest of these crystals are trapiche, identified by their dark spoke patterning. Emerald is said to be a stone of unconditional love and friendship. It is the May birthstone.

This emerald is set in a six-prong setting made of recycled 18k yellow gold. On an articulated bale, this piece is one of a kind. Sold separately from a chain (chain pictured: Heavy Weight Chain).

Taking Care

Fine jewelry should be treated with care. It is best practice to remove jewelry when coming home, and to put it back on when leaving the house. This can lengthen the life of a piece dramatically, and can lessen the chances of damaging an item.

Diamond Slices

Diamond slices can be particularly delicate, especially in rings; be sure not to put pressure directly on the surface of the stone. Translucent stones with closed backings should not be submerged in water, and should not come into contact with lotions, oils, or creams. Clear diamond slices are especially susceptible to this because of their beautiful translucency and subtle marbling. To clean we recommend a dry, soft toothbrush.

Diamond slices have a hardness of 10.
