Van Cleef & Arpels

Emerald 2.57 cts AGL report Origin-CLASSIC COLOMBIAN  Enhancement NONE. Diamonds 3.40 cts tw eighteen karat gold. Colombian emerald with a special designation CLASSIC COLOMBIA, the laboratory upon our inquiry stated "The call of Classic Colombia is a special designation we use when the origin is clear and the quality is high, this call is not issued very often". The mark for Van Cleef & Arpels has virtually worn away, part of the identification was a ring in Elizabeths Taylors book, My Love Affair with Jewellry, Richard Burtons Christmas gift to her in the 1970s. That ruby is in the same mount, while the gems are different, the rings are exactly the same. Elizabeth Taylors ring was Van Cleef & Arpels, (see thumbnail) # 2297467
