Emerald’s distinct hue was once considered the ultimate definition of green. From Cleopatra of Ancient Egypt to Incan emperors, emeralds were used in royal adornments and religious ceremonies. Also known as the “gem of spring”, emerald is symbolically and metaphysically associated with regeneration and recovery. It also represents the 20th and 35th wedding anniversaries.
One of the “Big Three” precious coloured stones, along with ruby and sapphire, emeralds are more commonly used in bespoke commissions. Therefore, featured below are ready-to-wear pieces with equally stunning tsavorite (a January birthstone) for those who simply love opulent green gems.
