Emerald and Diamond Ring at Dupuis Auctioneers

Emerald and Diamond Ring at Dupuis Auctioneers

At auction, you never know what will show up. With the November 24, 2013 Dupuis Jewellery Auction, there is a great range of fine gems. Among the gems, it is interesting to note the majority of the emeralds are from the traditionally most treasured source, Colombia. Their internal features are very identifiable: “Three phase” inclusions consisting of a solid, a liquid, and a gas; a liquid filled inclusion with a small crystal and a bubble. Lot 220 in the auction, for more information, go to: http://bit.ly/19ziRr6
