An exceptional untreated 5.94-carat Colombian emerald makes a breathtaking impression in this dramatic ring by the famed jewelry designer to the stars, Fred Leighton. For centuries, Colombia has been the prime location for the mining of the finest quality emeralds in the world. Colombian emeralds are set apart from emeralds from any other origin due to their incomparable, brilliant green that is free of any bluish tinge. The remarkable emerald in this Fred Leighton creation has been certified by the American Gemological Laboratories as being Colombian in origin and untreated, meaning its pure green hue is entirely natural.
New York-based Fred Leighton is world renowned for his exceptional vintage style that brings together sculptural design with rare gemstones. His highly unique pieces are inspired by an array of historical periods, and are beloved by A-listers like Nicole Kidman, Lupita Nyong’o, Charlize Theron and Meryl Streep. Signed pieces by Leighton are particularly prized, as all of his creations are either rare limited editions or completely one of a kind.
This example of his work is quintessential Fred Leighton, bringing together an exceptionally rare Colombian emerald with a daring and bold design. The sculptural setting is crafted of 18K yellow gold and set with an array of brilliant yellow diamonds that enhance the high drama of the center stone.
