Spring Calls For Emeralds

April 27, 2017 at 10:25 PM

 If your birthday falls in May then you are fortunate to have emerald as your birthstone. The word emerald has its origins in the Greek word for green. The color of emeralds can range from light green to a deep, rich green. The rarest emeralds are an intense green-blue. Emeralds are found all over the world, including Colombia, Brazil, Afghanistan and Zambia but the availability of high-quality emerald is quite limited.

Emeralds were mined in Egypt as early as 330 BC and it’s estimated that the oldest emeralds are 2.97 billion years old. The Egyptians used emeralds both in jewelry and in their elaborate burials. They buried emeralds with their leaders as symbols of protection and because they believed they imparted the power of eternal youth.

Like other gemstones, the emerald was believed to have many mystical powers that accompanied its beauty. Perhaps because of its soothing green color, it was thought to be able to ward off panic and keep the wearer relaxed and serene. It’s also considered a symbol of rebirth and is believed to grant the owner foresight and good fortune.

Colored stone engagement rings are on trend and many brides we work with are shopping for an emerald. They work well for some brides but depending on your lifestyle they may be too delicate for everyday wear. Emeralds are a symbol of loyalty and security, making them a meaningful gift to be treasured. One thing is certain you don’t have to be born in May to love and wear an emerald.
