This very nice pendant is set with a traditional emerald cut .65 carat size Shelby simulated emerald. It looks ALOT better than the picture. This high quality pendant is made from solid 14kt gold. This pendant is priced without a chain. You can add a matching 10kt or 14kt solid gold chain from the options down below. The pendant, like ALL of our jewelry are high quality. Some stores sell lightweight stuff that bends or breaks with hardly any force. Our jewelry is nice, heavy, and well built. Our simulated emeralds are in most ways better than natural emeralds. Ours are much much harder and more sparkly. Not to mention, they don't have the cracks and inclusions often found in natural emeralds. AND... ,like all of our gems,.. they come with our best in the business guarantee.
