“Emerald necklace” with a diamond-studded chain (and a gemstone in the background) is a rare find
Posted January 05, 2019 05:18:04A jeweler’s delight, a rare diamond-filled necklace made of emerald, a mineral that can be mined by anyone, is the subject of a recent Kickstarter campaign.
“The emerald is one of the most precious minerals on the planet,” said Jeff Lass, a jeweler from California who created the necklace.
“We know it is extremely hard to find, but I have a feeling that this gemstone will help the wearer be as comfortable with the emerald as the diamond.”
The necklace is made of sterling silver and is set with an emerald-stadium alloy.
It measures 12.5 inches (34 centimeters) across the back and 13.5″ (35 centimeters) high.
The gold chain attached to the necklace is a diamond ring, which is the standard in jewelry manufacturing.
The chain has an emerodiamagnetic metal on one side, and a diamond on the other.
When the necklace first appeared on Kickstarter, Lass had it pegged at $50,000, but after receiving more than 1,400 votes, he raised the price to $60,000.
He hopes the necklace will be on sale in the next few weeks.
Emerald Necklaces are also very common, with one of my favorite examples being the “Goldfish Necklace,” a necklace with an Emerald gemstone.

A Jeweler’s Delight by Jewelry Geek and Designer in Residence Posted January 06, 2019 12:05:59There are a few things to remember when buying an emeralfold necklace.
First, if you’re going to spend any money on it, do it with the utmost care.
It’s not cheap, but it’s definitely not cheap.
Secondly, if it’s a little harder to get than you’d think, it’s likely that you’ll have to break it down into smaller pieces and then cut them up to fit the necklace you’re looking for.
That said, a good rule of thumb is that you should probably spend around $15 on each piece of jewelry.
You’ll want to consider the weight of the piece as well.
A very small necklace might weigh between 6 and 8 grams.
And lastly, a ring or other accessory with an embedded gemstone is a gem-stamp, so make sure it’s as durable as possible.
