Minutia Emerald Earring - Web Exclusive - Single
- 10k solid yellow gold
- 10k solid yellow gold butterfly earring back
- Emerald: Diameter 2mm
This piece is handmade locally in New York using 100% post-consumer recycled gold.
10k gold can darken with wear, depending on body chemistry. This is most common on the inside of rings or on earrings but it’s easy to fix! A polishing cloth usually will clear this right up but anything particularly stubborn can be taken to a reputable jeweler to be used in an ultrasonic cleanser.
Emeralds are beautiful but delicate and soft stones that require extra attention to ensure their longevity. Inclusions are very common in Emeralds and while they can remain stable for a long time they can form hairline cracks or chips over time if knocked around on a daily basis. We do not typically recommend them for engagement rings. We recommend taking your ring off when exercising or doing anything rough with your hands.

Emeralds' glowing green color is made by the presence of chromium in the mineral. The intensity of an emerald’s color will differ depending on the source – they vary from a light pastel green to a deep rich green (with the added presence of iron). All emeralds technically fall under the Beryl family of minerals, and, technically speaking, our light emeralds can also be called high quality green beryl.
Our emeralds are sourced from different artisanal mining operations around the world, each providing their own unique color. Our deep green emeralds come from Colombia, while our lighter green emeralds originate from small mining communities in Ethiopia and in Nasarawa, Nigeria.
