Expert gouache painting of a Colombian emerald ring by Australian based designer @douglas_mcdonnell - I’m cutting a stone right now for Douglas, watch this space! #emerald #emeralds #colombianemerald #colombianemeralds #gouache #painting #finejewellery #designer #investment #gems

A friend of ours holds a trapiche emerald necklace. Terrible setting but great stones, to be dismantled. #emerald #emeralds #colombianemerald #colombianemeralds #trapiche #muzo #chivor #coscuez #bogota #colombia #export #gems

Looking forward to @donhotelbarichara opening in Colombia’s most magical little town. This UNESCO world heritage site is one I always recommend to people visiting Colombia as not only is it architecturally stunning but its super tranquil, very safe and a great place to relax. The photo is a render of one of the private villas being built by @lopezsmitharquitectura ideal for couples on a romantic getaway or those looking to switch off from the outside world. The town does have wonderful colonial houses to rent but they generally sleep a minimum of 10-12 people and the hotel options available are pretty basic. Hence this is one to watch in 2019! #barichara #santander #bucaramanga #boutique #hotel #luxuryvilla #infinitypool #tropical #hideout #colombia #hotel #ecoluxury

**Urgently required** a suitable model for this new pair....👀 #emerald #emeralds #colombianemerald #colombianemeralds #muzo #earrings #emeraldearrings #bogota #colombia #important #stones

Emerald pricing basics.
1. Intensity of colour.
2. Clarity/transparency.
3. Purity (degree of treatment)
4. Shape and cut quality.
5. Size

These two stones are almost identical in size and cut quality but the one on the left costs 4 times as much as the one on the right. Quite simply, intensity of colour is king, with that rich alpine green commanding prices in excess of 15k per ct for a 5 ct minor oil stone. Degree of treatment is incredibly important too (and most important to me personally)......these two stones could cost exactly the same if the one on the left was heavily treated, assuming the lighter stone remained ‘minor’. Think of a woman without make up who is flawlessly beautiful in her natural state, thats your ‘no oil’ stone, what you see is what you get. If a bit of lipstick and eyeliner is necessary thats your minor oil, only one or two fissures required filling with oil to improve clarity. Now if the lady requires tons of make up, hair extensions, fake eyelashes, botox, fillers etc etc etc then think a ‘significant’ oil stone, numerous fissures that required filling to enhance clarity! Picture the transformation if you remove all the enhancement, barely recognisable and precisely why (in layman’s terms) you should avoid heavily treated emeralds . #emerald #emeralds #colombianemerald #colombianemeralds #treatment #gem #trade #bogota #colombia

A very, very cool lapel pin belonging to Ron Ringsrud @eyesonjupiter & photographed by @richagoyalsikri - The centre stone is a wonderfully clean cabochon from the Muzo region, flanked by two icy moonstones.

2 hours from Bogota is a magical coffee farm/weekend hideout @cafetaldelatrinidad - The century old, colonial style ‘finca’ is set in 4000 acres of sprawling lush greenery and is beginning to produce some of Colombia’s finest coffee after many years of inactivity. The operation is owned and managed by an Anglo-Colombian couple and makes for a perfect day trip or overnight stay next time you are in Bogota. A wonderful insight into the world of coffee farming full of old world charm and total tranquility, highly recommended....🇨🇴🇬🇧 #emerald #emeralds #colombianemerald #colombianemeralds #colonial #chic #architecture #coffee #farm #finca #country #house

‘Red carpet’ level, trapiche emerald and diamond earrings from our 2018 collaboration with @qiuqiu_he - Scroll right and you’ll see the original sketches & design work that led to this dazzling handmade pair to be produced. Now I first shared these pencil drawings some months ago and sadly since then, two (almost) carbon copies have surfaced on another Instagram page, marketed as ‘bespoke jewellery’ 🤣. The double edged sword that is social media enables these shameless copycats to rip-off other people’s work and although I’ve quoted before my belief is that ‘imitation is the sincerest form of flattery’, this latest find takes it to a whole new level. The other side of this ‘sword’ is that I am able to share these copies I’ve found with you!!! I’ve accumulated quite a few of them over the last couple of years and will post them one by one very soon.......Trapiche emerald weight 21.21 ct, diamonds VS, D/E colour. Price on application. #emerald #emeralds #colombianemerald #colombianemeralds #muzoemeralds #qiufinejewelry #trapiche #earrings #emeraldearrings #redcarpet #hollywood #alist #colombia #investment #jewellery
