Emeralds

The magnificent green color of the emerald is unparalleled in the gem world. The emerald is the most valuable green stone and belongs to the beryl family. Emeralds vary in color from vibrant green to bluish green. The prized green color is caused by small amounts of chromium and enhanced by traces of iron. Some high quality emeralds have been known to have a higher per-carat value than diamonds.

Inclusions in emeralds are generally expected and are referred to as “jardin” (garden), giving it an appearance of lush gardens. These flaws are not considered negative aspects for an emerald, instead they are seen as part of the character of the stone that distinguishes them as truly natural gemstones. It is a relatively hard stone, 7.5 on the Mohr scale. The “Panjshir” emerald is the most brilliant and purest emerald in the world.

The dazzling emerald is immersed in legends. It is the sacred stone of the goddess Venus and is thought to preserve love. It is supposed to bring the wearer reason and wisdom. The emerald green color makes it a symbol of faith, hope and fertility. The Vedas, the holy scriptures of the Indians, say ‘Emeralds promise good luck… enhances well-being…’ The Incas and Aztecs of South America, where the best emeralds are still found today, regarded the emerald as a holy gemstone.

Emerald jewelry signifies harmony, wisdom, hope and love. Emerald is the birthstone for May and is the gemstone for commemorating the 20th and 35th wedding anniversaries.
