Kwiat Colombian Emeralds

KWIAT COLOMBIAN EMERALDS

LUSH COLOR AND MESMERIZING BEAUTY

HIGHLY DESIRED

Emeralds have been among the most sought-after gemstones on Earth for more than 4000 years, and the incomparable quality of Colombian emeralds has been known for centuries. These vivid dark green specimens are quite rare and can sometimes cost even more than diamonds of the same size.

PRECIOUS PROVENANCE

Since ancient times, emeralds have been mined in Colombia and prized among royalty. Other countries, including Zambia, Zimbabwe, and Brazil are also sources for emeralds, but Colombian stones possess the deepest color. At Kwiat, we sustainably and ethically source our Colombian emeralds from the Muzo and Chivor mines, renowned for the unrivaled purity and beauty of their stones.

COLOR AND CUT

An emerald’s value is largely based on its color, which is determined by its hue, tone, and saturation. Kwiat carefully chooses stones that meet the highest standards of these measurements. Although some inclusions are to be expected—in fact, emerald inclusions are considered so characteristic as to have earned their own name, jardin (garden in French)—we opt for stones with higher transparency and fewer inclusions.

The step cut technique developed for the emerald is so emblematic of the gemstone that it’s known as the emerald cut, even when applied to diamonds. This cut is especially good at making the most of an emerald’s color and brilliance, conveying a geometric elegance beloved by connoisseurs. Kwiat also fashions emeralds as cushion, oval and pear shapes, all of which make ideal center stones in engagement rings, pendants, and earrings.

NATURAL BEAUTY

As mentioned above, although emerald inclusions are normal, a rich green specimen with few imperfections is exceptionally rare. Kwiat emeralds are never treated with colored oil or polymer fillers, an unacceptable practice used by some less reputable jewelers to disguise inclusions.
