Lively. Radiant. Lush.
It did not take the world long to fall under the emerald’s spell as they have been coveted and revered since the days of Nero. From Cleopatra to Jackie Kennedy to the gorgeous Halle Berry, emeralds and emerald engagement rings have decorated some very notable characters throughout history and are still adored today. The emerald colour has even recently reached the dizzying heights of being named as one of Pantone’s ‘Colour of the Year’. These official connoisseurs of all things coloured described the verdant hue as “Lively. Radiant. Lush…….A colour of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony”.
Emerald engagement rings typically feature the classic ‘emerald cut’ shape. This particular cut highlights and enhances the intense colour and hue of an emerald which are its best attributes. The emerald cut is comprised of 57 facets, a rectangular shape with truncated edges and a broad flat plane which highlights the clarity of the stone.
Are You a Taurus?
Emeralds are typically associated with love, and the stone has even been regarded as an aphrodisiac in the past. An emerald is said to represent universal love and inner beauty, help dispel negative thoughts and even create positive outcomes. Born in May, the Taurians have always favoured this stone as they claim the gorgeous emerald as their birthstone. The metaphysical properties of the emerald are said to complement and enhance the positive qualities found in a Taurus.
Making a Statement
The emerald engagement ring can almost be considered the complete package. The classically beautiful verdant gem has history, modern appeal, a sultry enigmatic look coupled with elegant sophistication and the ability to turn heads wherever it goes. It is not a ring for the faint hearted or painfully shy. This ring will demand attention and should certainly be worn with pride.
