Description

Created to exacting standards, using state-of-the-art gem-lab technology and minute attention to detail, this lab-created emerald has a chemical make-up identical to the finest Colombian emeralds. Its color is a more intense green than the natural stones can offer, and it performs at the bench just as a natural stone does. Unlike natural emeralds, however, this stone is heat-resistant and can be successfully cast in place and can be fired in place in silver PMC3 at the lowest temperature schedule. Emerald is the birthstone for May.

This cut is a symbol of love and romance and is essentially a pear cut with its rounded end deeply notched to form the heart.
