    Question shopping for emeralds....

    Hi all, my husband and i are off to Aruba this coming Sunday, Dec.13th for a week. I am wondering where is the best place to buy emeralds and also, is there somewhere that one can buy loose emeralds? Just thinking maybe it would be less expensive to purchase a loose stone, rather than one with diamonds etc. that I can have set at home in my own setting?? Any and all information is welcome... before Sunday..

    HI again! Thanks so much for the quick response! We have been numerous times to Aruba, and bought tanzanite.. but no emeralds. Do the stores you mentioned sell loose stones? What about columbian emeralds.. are they specialists? Thank you

    I'll recommend Royal Jewelers on Main Street. Also suggest you consider having the stone(s) set in Aruba. It will less expensive to do it there. Shop early in your visit so there is time for them to do the work.

    I have had great experiences with Columbian Emeralds. I have 3 rings I purchased from them and all appraised higher than their purchase price.
