Torus Rings & Colombian Emeralds: A Beautiful Fusion

The Emerald Company has been in collaboration since last year's Tucson Gem Show with master gem carver Glenn Lehrer, of Lehrer Designs, to create a limited edition collection of his famous hand carved Torus Rings set with fine Colombian Emeralds.  We provided a selection of special rounds and marquises in the .25ct to .65ct range from among our best stock to be paired with some of the latest masterpieces to come out of Glenn's studio.  The piece pictured below is indicative of the results:

The .36ct vivid green Muzo emerald set in platinum is nestled in a beautifully carved, oval aquamarine Torus Ring.  Glenn's intricate faceting radiates a brilliance that both accentuates and compliments this precious Colombian beauty.

Be sure to come by Booth #925 at the AGTA Gemfair to see other pieces from the collection featuring amethyst, garnet, blue topaz and other fine stones fashioned into Rings of a variety of forms and sizes, both pairs and individual stones, all with exceptional emerald settings.

MUZO: Fact and Fiction

MUZO: Fact and Fiction

No other single word or phrase is so inextricably linked with the mystique, history and current reality of Colombian emerald mining as the ubiquitous “Muzo”.   Given its evolution in the form of noun and adjective over centuries, and its sometimes-erroneous use in the promotion of Colombia’s world class emeralds, it seems a good idea to attempt to clarify what “Muzo” is, and what it isn’t.

Why Emeralds?

Why Emeralds?

We appreciate the synchronicity at play between emeralds being a symbol for hope and positive change on the red carpet, and our own efforts to provide gemstones transparently, sustainably, and more ethically. It seems entirely fitting that famous actresses such as Debra Messing, Zoë Kravitz and Catherine Zeta-Jones would choose to wear emeralds to signify the importance of positive change and growth in all workplaces.

The Emerald Company™ - Two Colombian Myths about the origin of the Emerald.

The Emerald Company™ - Two Colombian Myths about the origin of the Emerald.

When the Hispanics burst into the Andean plateau, properly in what are now the departments of Cundinamarca and Boyacá they were dazzled by the riches of the native caciques, and were ecstatic with the emeralds that some of them displayed. Their ambition had no limits when they learned that in the region of the muzos ruled a beautiful cacica named Fura-Tena, whose throne was adorned with the most beautiful emeralds;
