24. Excelencia de Muzo
20.74 carats (total weight) of French cut Muzo emeralds set in an elegant platinum bracelet.
Measuring 7in. long, this stunning line bracelet crafted in platinum features 31 magnificent, graduated channel set, French cut natural emeralds from the Muzo region of Colombia, weighing a total of 20.74 carats of green fire! This wearable work of art represents a remarkable feat in combining such finely matched emeralds—no simple task. To match emeralds with such precision is only possible when bringing together sister stones recovered from exactly the same vein and the same mine at the same time. Even more difficult to obtain is the graceful curve of graduated width of these French cut gem fine emeralds from the bracelet’s center outward to both ends. The final gesture of excellence in this design is that the emeralds are set securely in their platinum beds but not overpowered by the look of metal heaviness in the holding bezels. This delicate and beautiful bracelet is emblematic of man’s ability to transform the wealth from the earth beneath his feet into an exquisite work of art.

Note: Due to the inability of current technology capturing the blue green hues and light dispersion in emeralds accurately, digital and particularly print images, do no justice to the true beauty, color and fire of Colombian emeralds. These magnificent specimens truly need to be seen with the naked eye to be appreciated to their full extent.
