Emeralds are and always have been linked to royalty. Their rich hues instantly release happy hormones and will leave you envious with every glance. A gemstone that features in most antique jewelry, you’ll be surprised to know natural emeralds are still some of the most sought after gemstones.

A gemstone worth the price and romance known to surround it, the rich bluish green colors of an emerald lend a soothing and calming feeling. Mined Columbia, Zambia, Afghanistan and Brazil, the most notable source today is Columbia. With spectacular gems, boasting cleaner appearances and bold colors, these gems are an example of everything an emerald aspires to be. 

Naturally a softer gemstone with a hardness of 6, the Emerald can be easily scratched and damaged and must be set with utmost care. Even in jewelry, thanks to its delicate nature, an emerald often requires a yearly trip to the jewelers to be sure the gemstone hasn’t got any knocks and cracks. With all the care that these gems need, emerald beads and gems are still used popularly in jewelry because of their unique combination of colors. 



Emeralds grow in mica rich pegmatites that get intertwined into the gemstone’s composition. Leaving behind tell tale signs of the gems origins, the abundantly present internal features are characteristic of an emerald. Adding beauty and charm, these features also called Jardin, are an inevitable and give each gem its individuality. 

Investing in an emerald requires a little caution because most gems on the market are treated to some degree. With oiling an accepted trade practice always insist on a certificate because although accepted by the trade it is important to disclose treatments at the time of purchase.

When creating a unique piece of jewelry an emerald seems to pair well with gems like a juicy, colored Spinel or even a beautiful Garnet. Spinel, a variety that comes in rich colors is a great complement thanks to its durability internal fire. 

Mined across the world, some of the best gems come from Burma and Srilanka. Much like the Burmese Ruby, the spinel also colored by chromium has a glow that is amplified thanks to the marble environment in which it grows. A gem that once cut to perfection allows light to pass through beautifully creating the most spectacular illusion you can imagine.
