Fine emerald jewelry, fully certified and guaranteed. One of a kind pieces designed in-house, in 18K yellow and white gold, as well as in silver. Rough emerald pieces and loose faceted emeralds. Solid reputation of being both knowledgeable and trustworthy. Friendly atmosphere, nonthreatening, with no pressure. U.S. customer service center and direct U.S. telephones. Attended by owner, Leland W. Miles.

We were recommended Mister Emerald by our cruise ship. We did end up buying a loose stone and sure hope we did ok. The father and son team was very nice to work with.

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.
