Emerald Gems, About Emerald Gemstones

  Page   1           

 Emeralds are surely some of the earliest gemstones known to mankind. Green gems bring up visions of nature, trees and greenery something that impresses everyone. Emerald gemstones were very popular among the royals and are still very popular with the rich and famous. History tells us about Cleopatra's collection of stunning emerald gems, infact some of the big emeralds recorded in history belonged to her collection. As gemological sciences developed, it was discovered that many 'emeralds' in Cleopatra's collection were infact peridot and not emerald gemstones! Emeralds are not the only gems that have been misunderstood in history, all red gems were at one time thought to be rubies.

If you are interested in knowing emerald as a birth stone, it is the birthstone for the month of May. Emerald birth stone rings and birthstone pendants with emerald gems are the common May birth stone jewels. Emeralds in general are expensive, various grades of emerald gems can be found and prices would depend on size and grade. Emeralds along with rubies and sapphires are some of the gems where, prices can increase sharply as the size of the gemstone moves up.  You will therefore have to choose the design and dimensions for your emerald birth stone jewel, keeping the price behaviour of the gemstone in mind.

There is something very interesting about emerald gems. All the emeralds mined on this planet have natural and visible inclusions. It is therefore very hard to find an eye clean emerald gem stone. This is all the more true as the size of the emerald increases. Big emeralds could be in the size range of 3 to 4 carats and more. The quality of an emerald can be graded based on color, clarity and lustre. If you look at the large heart shaped emerald EMN-01 shown below, you will notice that the gem is large as it weighs 3 carats. You will notice that the price of 1,450 U.S$ for this emerald is highly attractive. The lowe clarity and lustre of this gem has kept the price at this incredibly low level. Just for comparison, an emerald of the same size and shape with good clarity and lustre would be priced at around 4,000 U.S$ for the piece. So if you are looking for a big natural emerald and are on a tight budget, this is the gem to grab.

We now come to the important and interesting issue of treating emeralds.We mentioned above that an emerald will always have natural inclusions and fissures. These obviously reduce the transparency and lustre of the gemstone. A few centuries ago man found a way to add lustre and enhance the transparency of emerald gemstones. Natural oils were used for this purpose and emeralds were soaked in these oils. The oil would seep into the emerald and fill the fissures, thus increasing clarity and lustre. Some believe that this oil treatment also makes the emerald stronger. The inclusions and the ensuing oil treatment does mean that emeralds need some caution when being handled, stored and cleaned.

When you pick your gem stone from Kaisilver, you can choose to have just the loose gemstone. As the world's leading online custom jewelry provider, we can also make a complete jewel with the gem stone of your choice. You need not restrict your gemstone choice to just the tourmalines or other gems that you see on our website. All gem stone options are available since each gem is fully custom cut. We can provide you with all types, shapes and sizes of gems. In cases where you have a specific budget in mind, give us an idea of your budget and our support team will guide you with various suggestions and options.

emerald gemstone, big emerald heart shape


A large emerald heart gemstone, size 9mm and a proportional weight of around 3 carats. This is a gorgeous emerald and makes up in size what it lacks in lustre. Ideally suited for an emerald heart pendant or even an emerald gem stone ring. Not too much of transparency for this emerald but a great bargain considering that the price is just 1,450 U.S$. It is not easy to find heart shaped emeralds as most cutters prefer to shape emeralds into ovals or emerald cut shapes. If you are looking for a big emerald give this piece a good look.


Who Is Kaisilver?

Having established itself as the world's leading online custom jewelry provider, Kaisilver now extends it's merchandise line to include gems. While there is no shortage of gem stones in the global market, reliable sources for the retail buyer requirements are not many. Most retail gem dealers work with limited inventories, this reduces buyer options. Another problem with these small dealers is the lack of information and reliability when it comes to gem authenticity and value for money. Kaisilver with it's wide network of gemstone mining and manufacturing resources, is the best source for gems of all types, shapes, sizes and cuts. With a support team that is compromised of jewelry and gemstone experts, the advice and suggestions made by the team relate to your requirements and not to fixed sales targets. The website shows a small sampling of the gems that we offer. You can infact request for just about any gem on the globe. All gems are sourced directly from the source, closely inspected and then custom cut by our expert cutters. With a buyer base that includes fashion models, government officials, casino and resort owners, lawyers, financial experts, students and professors, doctors and surgeons, sportsmen and newsreaders we have become the preferred choice for quality gems and jewelry. By cutting out middlemen commissions and multiple agents, we provide great value for your money. Our large online operation does not stop us from welcoming even the smallest order. Gold and silver jewelry is custom made with equal attention to quality, material and craftsmanship. You can choose from our designs or send us detailed for the style and design that you need.


How To Order?

The process to order gems and custom jewelry at Kaisilver is similar. We do not expect you to make a rush purchase. We do wish that you take the time to discuss your requirements with our experts. They will be in a position to provide constructive suggestions that will guide you to make well informed buying decisions. Email all your requirements to provide as much inputs as possible to help us make relevant suggestions. For example if you are keen on getting a green gemstone but, are not particular about it being an emerald mention this in your email. Our gem experts might suggest a green tourmaline or even a peridot instead of an emerald. This suggestion would reduce our profit margins but will give you a gem that, is much cheaper and even more durable as compared to an emerald. When it comes to payments we offer some very suitable options. Paypal is the preferred form of payment, it is fair to the buyer and seller. The buyer when using paypal never needs to reveal credit card of bank information to the seller. We also accept direct bank transfers but prefer to do this on a case by case basis. When it comes to online transactions these days, both buyer and seller are afraid of frauds. It is quite possible that you do not feel comfortable working with us at Kaisilver. We sometimes feel a little uncomfortable with certain transactions too and prefer to keep away from them. There have always been fears of processing payments through Western Union money transfers. With the latest fraud reports, fake sellers and even fake buyers have been pulling off many online frauds using this mode of payment. At the same time we do understand that armed forces from the U.S who are stationed in various global positions sometimes have no other mode of payment besides Western Union. We therefore accept this mode of payment but at the same time, request you to avoid this mode if you do not feel comfortable using it. Shipping is done through FEDEX and you can expect a production lead time of around 4 to 5 weeks from the date of order confirmation and receipt of payment. Every jewel is fully custom made and requires the complete attention and concentration of highly skilled craftsmen. When it comes to gems, we could provide faster lead times and this can be discussed for each specific order.
