Specializing in the Finest Quality Colombian Emeralds

Queen Emerald is a family-owned jewelry company specializing exclusively in the finest quality natural Colombian emeralds. Our family has been sourcing this magnificent precious gem for over 40 years. We are proud to have master jewelers who are expert in creating quality jewelry that is worthy of Colombian emeralds. While our US-based retail store is located in South Florida, our main shop is still located in Bogota, Colombia; the heart of the finest emerald mining in the world.

We care about our jewelry. Every single natural emerald is hand-selected and every single jewelry item is hand crafted one at time. Quality stands out in both the gemstones and the craftsmanship of our natural emerald jewelry. We can fully customize any of our pieces for you. Just let us know what you want and we’ll go to work. We can also do any alteration that you require; from the emerald shape or size, or your preferred metal of choice whether it is yellow gold, white gold, or even platinum. Let us design something original or we’ll work with your own ideas.

My pendant finally arrived yesterday...I finally got to look at it & try it on. And it is stunning, a gorgeous colour. It is the light blueish green colour you described, which I absolutely adore. The emerald cut really shows off clarity & brilliancy of the stone perfectly. I love it, am so pleased I purchased. & at a fantastic price.

I received my emerald ring today! Oh my gosh, it is VERY beautiful!! I have never seen such a sparkly, happy-colored green before in my life. I am thrilled with my ring!! I knew I ordered a shade of green that I wanted, but you are right - it looks better!!! The pictures don't do justice, they look so much better in person. Thank you. This is my favorite ring. If I want another emerald ring in the near future, I will definitely contact you.

Janice Song (Reston, VA)

Our experience with Jose Rodriguez and Queen Emerald was one of complete satisfaction and we would do business with them in the future. When we spoke with Jose, his experience and knowledge made us realize right away we made the right choice in a company to make the emerald ring we desired. All through the process Jose remained in contact with us making us feel very confident the ring would be what we expected. Many thanks to all who took part in this beautiful ring. The ring was shipped promptly, which made our anniversary celebration that much more special.
