There is nothing quite like the uniquely vivid green found in green emeralds. Out of the four globally recognized precious gemstones, emeralds are the only stones that don’t come in various colors. They get their signature green hue from trace amounts of chromium and vanadium, and shades range from yellow-green to a rich deep jade.
You may be surprised to learn most emeralds have some type of inclusion or imperfection, tastefully referred to as an internal jardin in the jewelry industry. These features make each stone unique and contribute to the inspiration behind an emerald piece’s design. Emeralds are also rarer than diamonds, making them worth more on a per-carat basis. Throughout their long history, these precious stones have been celebrated by people from all walks of life, from Egyptian royalty to modern mystics.
With March upon us and spring just around the corner, this is the perfect time of year to sport the lush green attributed to emerald jewelry. Let your style bloom and welcome new beginnings with a selection of emerald pieces we’re loving right now.
