    Default Raw/Rough Emerald - where can I buy in the UK?

    Could anyone please tell me where I can purchase some "raw emerald" (rough emerald?) like in the photo?
    I would love to make my own ring like these.

    Photos are from an UK online shop

    They say:
    Natural, untreated Emerald gems from Zambia (I don't mind if it's not from Zambia)
    Stone Size Most around 8-9mm.


    (ring price is depends on the finish, if its 925 sterling silver = about 44, and Gold Vermeil = about 53.
    since I am new to jewellery making and have no ideal how much those band costs but I'm guessing stone itself wouldn't be too expensive..?)


    I know there are some great cut emerald sold on Cooksongold website but since I'm a newbie I just wanted to start something
    a bit more casual


    Thank you

    Sounds as though rather than make a piece you just want assemble from ready made parts, excuse me if I am wrong, the words Emerald and "wouldn't be too expensive do not go together unless they are very low quality as for the ring
    there are hundreds of sellers

    Hi, thanks for those links misspond! I appreciate your effort.

    As I am new to jewellery making, It doesn't matter if it's law quality or not as long as its not fake. Maybe I should have mentioned.
    If you happen to see more UK seller, please let me know

    (I should have posted this thread under Gemstone and Gem Setting...)

    If you go to Etsy you can filter your search to find items being sold in the UK. Same with eBay.
