Today, buying a diamond is very transparent and easy due to the standardization of all its characteristics and hence the general verification that all gemological laboratories can do very easily, affordably and consistently. Hence diamonds can be put into different categories for the customer to understand what (s)he is buying.

But buying Emeralds (or other colored gemstones) can be trickier since they have no industry accepted standardization for the most part. Due to the high cost and no standard grading qualities, typically only color gemstones >$10,000 come with a certificate. So the question begs itself:

How can a novice buyer be sure of the quality of his/her Emerald jewelry, from traditional retailers or online jewelers?

A lot of leading jewelers have adopted a simpler grading system to make it easier for the customer to buy Emerald jewelry. Please ask your jeweler on the quality of your Emerald based on the grading system below. We recommend buying Natural AAA or AAAA gemstones only.

Preferred Grading System: Natural AAAA vs AAA vs AA

Unlike diamonds, color gemstones do not have a perfect grading system. Hence, we along with a lot of the leading jewelers grade our Emeralds as Natural AAAA, Natural AAA or Natural AA.

Natural AAAA
(Best)

Natural AAAA gemstones are the top 10% of gemstones in terms of quality. They are rich green, moderately to slightly included and exhibits high brilliance. They are comparable to that used by the top 5th Avenue or Rodeo Drive Jewelers.

Natural AAA
(Better)

Natural AAA gemstones are the top 20%-30% of gemstones in terms of quality. They are Medium green and moderately included. They are comparable to that used by leading independent/family jewelers.

Natural AA
(Good)

Natural AA gemstones are the top 50%-75% of gemstones in terms of quality. They are Dark green, opaque and heavily included. They are comparable to that used by mall jewelers or small family jewelry shops.
