Pear-Shaped Emerald and 1/4 CT. T.W. Diamond Vintage-Style Ring in 10K White Gold
I love this ring!
I got this ring in the mail a few days ago. The color of the emerald is GORGEOUS (spot on to the online picture). It is super bright and clear (not the common cloudy look of natural emeralds). Of course, for the price, the emerald has several small black inclusions/spots, but you really only notice those if you hold the ring up close. Even with the little black spots, it's still beautiful. I don't mind them at all. I have really small fingers (size 4 ring finger), and the size of the stone is really nice on my hand. I ordered a size 5 (smallest size I could order) and had to get it sized down to a 4 after I received it in th mail. I was a little concerned b/c of the side diamonds if sizing would be a problem, but it wasn't to move down one size. The diamonds are really small, much smaller than the online picture depicts, but they are really clear and sparkle. You can't tell from the online ad, but the ring has antique-like engravings on the the top and bottom of the gold area that surrounds the emerald which are really pretty. Overall, I am really pleased. I love it!

I think this ring is absolutely beautiful. The emerald is so green, you can actually see through it. It is not a solid green like a lot of emeralds I have seen. There are inclusions in it but that is a characteristic of all emeralds. I have always wanted a ring like this (with the diamonds encircling the emerald) because the emerald is my birthstone. The diamonds in it are very pretty and really sparkle. The picture is the blown up version but I wasn't expecting a huge diamond presence because it is 1/4 carats worth. I almost didn't buy it because it was 10k gold but after doing some research on gold, I just discovered it has some added alloys to it which I don't have allergies to. The gold is a beautiful color. It is harder to find emeralds in white gold so that's another reason why I wanted the ring. I don't like yellow gold and don't have very many pieces. This ring is perfect for me and I intend to wear it everyday.

personally loved it!
I was given this ring as a birthday present / replacement engagement ring. Personally I'm in love with it. The picture online is VERY misleading, but it is still a beautiful ring, and I love showing it off to family and friends.

My husband wanted some ideas for me for Christmas, so when I found this ring I told him it was the only one I wanted. I loved it!! When the ring arrived 2 weeks before Christmas, my husband decided to show it to me first. I honestly thought it was a joke. The emerald is not even close to the same color in the picture. The ring looks like it came out of a 25 cent machine; I wouldn't have paid any more than that. He said he showed it to me because he knew I would hate it and wanted to get me something else. Very disappointed in zales with this one. We did get a different ring from zales. The store itself is wonderful, but the picture of this ring is very misleading.
