Full description
After meeting at the center, you will meet your guide who is a jeweler with her own collection of rings, earrings and necklaces produced by herself in a local co-workshop. By creating your own ring, you will learn how emeralds have become the most important and precious stone for Colombians, as well as about their influence in Colombian society and economy. You will work in the middle of the emerald and jewelry cluster of Bogota, one of the leading cities for this industry in South America. Your experience will begin at the La Casa de la Moneda Museum, where you will learn the importance that metals had throughout pre-Hispanic and colonial times. After you get inspired by the crown jewels, you will go to your guide's workshop where she will teach you how to create your own emerald ring. You will decide the shape, the stone, and the design of your silver ring, learning the several steps in the production of a ring at your guide's advisory. At the conclusion of your tour, you will be able to wear your own creation, an authentic emerald Colombian ring.

I absolutely loved making my own ring. Both Juan (the guide for the activity) and Andrea (the jeweler) made this activity super fun. I did not know what to expect, as I have never done anything like this, and I have to say that it exceeded my expectations. First of all, I had booked an earlier tour to Zipaquira that day, and because of the traffic, I was 30 minutes late. Juan reassured me that he would wait for me, and sure enough, he was waiting for me in front of the Museo de la Moneda. Andrea is super sweet and encouraging (they both were coaching me through all of the steps, and Juan took amazing photos and videos of me making my own ring). I was literally involved in all of the steps, and it was such a unique experience. Andrea will show you the emerald that comes included in the price of the workshop, and then show you more options (say, if you would like to add extra emeralds or diamonds to the ring). I ended up adding 2 little emeralds, as I wanted a three-band ring.
