This 1.67 Carat 9.5 x 6.8 mm Green Oval Emerald has been hand selected by our GIA-certified gemologists for its exceptional characteristics and rarity.
Emeralds from Zambia are considered especially perfect and rare due to the even distribution of their color and their relative lack of flaws compared with most emeralds. Most of our emeralds are sourced from a remote region of central Zambia. The Kagem mine, which produces Brilliant Earth’s emeralds, is a leader in socially responsible gemstone mining, funding social investment projects such as upgrading a local clinic to a hospital and creating a new secondary school. The mine employs about 500 people, providing miners with good jobs as well as housing and meals.
The mine has eliminated the use of toxic chemicals, trained employees in eco-friendly mining techniques, and invested in technology that reduces its environmental footprint. In areas where mining is no longer active, the mine restores the land by replacing lost soil, planting trees, or creating freshwater lakes. Brilliant Earth’s Zambian emeralds are a beautiful and responsible choice.
