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.
Here we go again with an all star line up of speakers at the second world class emerald symposium in Bogota, Colombia. Gemstone experts such as GIA's Andrew Lucas, Jean Claude Michelou, ICA director and Editor in Chief of Incolor Magazine and Muzo's Charles Burgess will be sharing their knowledge with us all.
In 1971 Pablo Neruda won the Nobel Prize for poetry. He also visited Colombia that same year where he wrote this untitled poem in praise of the magnificent emeralds he encountered. We wanted to share one of our favorite poems about emeralds with you.
