A Beautiful 1970s Vintage Synthetic Emerald Solitaire Ring

Claw-set with a 2.12ct vivd green square-cut hydrothermal emerald, crafted in thick gauge 9ct yellow gold.

Synthetic emeralds are created from either flux or hydrothermal processes.

French chemist Jacques Joseph Ebelman developed the flux process to make emeralds in 1848. However, it was more expensive to synthesise emeralds than to mine them until 100 years later thanks to the efforts of Carroll Chatham of Chatham synthetic emeralds.

Hydrothermal emeralds are grown under conditions very similar to the heat and pressure that natural emeralds form in. One large difference is they do not form freely-grown crystals.

Synthetic emeralds are often grown with fewer inclusions, and rarely need to be treated for clarity. These make for super-clear emeralds which are considerably more durable and much safer for everyday wear.
