If your partner has a thing for emeralds and you are planning to commission a custom emerald engagement ring, you will obviously be anxious about the stone authenticity. Green glass can be fashioned to look like the real thing and unless you happen to be a gem dealer, how would you know?

Here are a few ways that you can check that an emerald is the real thing.

  • Look For Inclusions - These are internal flaws that naturally occur when the emerald is formed and this is one of the easiest ways to determine whether or not an emerald is natural. Hold the stone at an oblique angle and use a magnifying glass to see minor inclusions that may include tiny bubbles. The other way to guarantee genuine stones is to find a custom jeweller who can create the perfect emerald engagement ring, and it won’t cost any more than an off-the-shelf creation.
  • Yellow Or Brown Undertones - Fake emeralds tend to have a yellowish-brown hue, whereas a real emerald has a green or blue hue. Of course, we wouldn’t recommend that you try to acquire loose emeralds on your own. The best way to do that is using a custom jeweller who creates unique emerald engagement rings to your specification and what’s more, the custom jeweller has access to loose emeralds at trade prices.
  • Check The Facets - Glass quickly acquires scratches and marks and under a microscope, the surface should be smooth; a pitted surface is a sign the stone is not genuine. If you are still unsure, ask a jeweller to appraise the stone and that will settle the matter, one way or the other.
  • Unusually Low Price - This would be a classic sign of a fake gem and a clever scammer would not lower the price too much, as this is a sign of a synthetic emerald. If you see what looks like stunning emeralds from an online supplier, we don’t recommend ordering, rather approach a custom jeweller and have the expert create the emerald piece you are looking for.
  • Look For The Rainbow Flash - A real emerald produces little or no fire and anything with a rainbow spectrum means a fake. If your fiancée has a thing for emeralds, why not commission a custom jeweller to create the ultimate emerald engagement ring? Then you can be sure that the stones are genuine and knowing her taste in jewellery as you do, you can leave her speechless when you go down on one knee.
