Emerald rings are perfect for engagement rings, anniversary rings, stacking rings, and other jewellery.
Emerald is the precious green variety of the beryl mineral family, and is a relative to golden beryl, aquamarine, and morganite. Emerald is an important gem and is a part of the “Big 3” of popular stones, along with sapphire and ruby (which are part of the corundum mineral family).
Distinctive and Beautiful
Emeralds are breathtakingly beautiful and distinctive in appearance, showcasing a gorgeous grassy green to dark forest green hue. Emeralds are notated in value depending on their origin, caratage, cut, and color. Emerald is the birthstone for May, but is appreciated by those born in other months.
Emeralds are often highly included. Inclusions (internal and external growth patterns) make them more susceptible to damage and breaking if they are not handled with care. Emeralds may be fracture-filled to preserve the stone’s value and should be disclosed upon purchase.
Are Emeralds Valuable?
Fine quality emeralds are more valuable than ones that are more common with lower saturation. These valuable, higher quality emeralds display medium to medium-dark hues. Emeralds are often sold by origin, such as Colombian emerald and Zambian emerald, for example, making them more sought-after for the emerald enthusiast.
Emerald Rings: A Vivacious Investment
Emeralds are rated 7.5-8 on the Mohs hardness scale, making them perfect for frequent wear. Emeralds are commonly faceted into emerald cut or square emerald cut, a specialized modified step cut with recessed shoulders, allowing the prongs to have a better grip on the stone without causing damage.
How to keep your Emerald Ring sparkling
Keeping your emerald jewellery clean is effortless. Washing with warm diluted soapy water, running it through clean water, and patting dry helps remove bacteria and debris. Do not place your emerald in an ultrasonic or liquid jewellery cleaner–these methods are too harsh and may permanently damage the stone.
