@Pink Turtle:  Emeralds are milky and crackly by nature. The inclusions are known in the gem trade as “jardin”, which means garden. The clearer stones are more desired, but they’re insanely expensive and most people can’t afford them, let alone even find them in a jewelry store. Your stone looks nice in that setting. Don’t listen to what your friends say.

@Aquaria:  I like it, I think its really pretty. It is not as dark as I would expect from an Emerald but the lightness dosent make it any less pretty to me. I’d be very happy with a ring like that.

I think it’s pretty.  I wouldn’t have guessed it was an emerald myself from the color, but I do like the color a lot.  I like the setting a lot and if the setting is done in gold I definitely would be thinking the stone is a quality stone.

Emeralds come in many different colors and they have the same issues with inclusions that diamonds have.  The milkiness makes it look more real in my eyes since it’s hard to find a flawless emerald.

@Pink Turtle:  I love emeralds. I have an emerald ring my Mother gave me for my 20th birthday that I treasure.

Its beautiful, and your friend is a jerk.

@ddhb2007:  If it’s flawless, it’s likely man-made. Which can be beautiful, but you’re right, those imperfections make you know it’s real.

Beautiful stone, OP!
