What a nice ring! This ring is made from solid 14kt gold. It is available in either white or yellow gold. It has .62 total carats of sparkle. The main simulated emerald is accented by two Shelby simulated diamonds. 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.. they all come with our best in the business guarantee.
