What parameters affect the price of emeralds

What parameters affect the price of emeralds - let's analyze these two pairs as an example:

What parameters affect the price of emeralds

The most important factor that affects the price of emeralds is the color, followed by the quality of the material and the degree of refinement.

The color of the stones of the more expensive pair is very saturated, with a slight admixture of a blue hue.

Whereas the cheaper pair has a yellowish-green tone, which is valued less.

The cheaper pair has more inclusions, they are more visible, and the stone itself is less transparent.

The more expensive pair also has inclusions, but they are small, scattered, the stones themselves are very transparent, and, accordingly, more shiny.

The shape and cut of the expensive pair are better, and a good polishing adds shine to the stones.

The height of the stones of the cheaper pair is small, so the color is less saturated.

The degree of refinement of the more expensive pair is minimal, whereas the cheaper pair is quite heavily filled with oil.

Filling with oil is the most popular method of refining, oil penetrates the stone, fills its cracks, and they become less noticeable. The oil is colorless, so it does not affect the main color of the stone.

But since the shine and play of the stone are optics, the effect of the oil is that the filled cracks become less noticeable.

Both pairs are natural emeralds, and to an unskilled viewer it may seem that the listed parameters are not quite significant to affect the price of the stones.

In fact, it is these nuances that are fundamental and they dictate prices.

Therefore, when buying emeralds and other valuable stones, contact only professionals and reliable sellers who will help you understand all the nuances.
