We were disappointed. Prices seemed comparable to Columbian Emeralds International but the settings for the stones were very old fashioned. We left without making a purchase.

Hello Berenice, Emerald rings set in silver might start at US$100. Good quality emeralds set in 18K gold start at about US $600. Pendants normally require a bit less gold and thus are more economical.
