The Raw Emerald Ring
Modern elegance, defined.
Made of raw emerald, brass, and gold.

OUR FOUNDER’S NOTES
This ring is an elegant representation of the cornucopia of resources native to South America, my birthplace and a region that inspires me daily.
South America has a rich heritage of emerald mines and using emeralds in their raw form in metallurgical works.
Our Raw Emerald Ring's are cut from a very large raw emerald gem rock, which results in the variability in size, color, and shape between each individual ring. Because a raw emerald rock is the convergence of beryllium, chromium, and vanadium, each cut stone is going to be a bit different than another, even though they're cut from the same rock. This adds to each ring's uniqueness.
Around the AMERICAE office we never take it off. Whether you treat it as an addition to your cocktail attire or a signature everyday piece, we have a feeling you won't either.
I like it best styled on your ring, pointer, or middle finger. I wanted to create things that tell a story of art and elegance. My favorite design refrain is ‘classic but with unexpected boldness.’ Wear this ring everywhere, because you add your own flair to wherever you please.
Emerald from Colombia. Each ring is handcrafted, one-by-one, by our emerald craftspeople.
Due to its handcrafted and raw nature, each emerald will vary slightly in shades of dark green to blue-green, adding to the uniqueness of the ring. Being completely natural, the color variation comes from the surrounding matrix stone so you may see dashes of white, silver, or copper mixed in with the green emerald. Please note that this is completely normal as an emerald stone is the convergence of beryllium, chromium, and vanadium.
In addition to the emerald, the rest of the ring is created from recycled 14-karat gold, brass, and a horn base. The gold and brass beautifully fuses the emerald to its base. The base of the ring is carved from cow's horn, sourced from stockyards in Colombia and part of our effort to reduce waste. Like the emerald, each horn is also unique in its natural color, varying from black to chocolate brown.
Handcrafted in Colombia.
