Emerald Jewelry

Emeralds stones are popularly known as the 'king of greens'. It is derived from a mineral called beryl. Emerald in the birthstone of people born in the month of May and the Anniversary stone for people celebrating their 20th and 35th marriage anniversary. However the use of emerald jewelry is not restricted to people born in the month of May. Its green beauty has lured people, men and women alike, for ages. The tradition of using emerald jewelry goes back to 3000 B.C. In the ancient ages it was extensively used in both India and Egypt.

It is believed that emerald were queen Cleopatra's favorite. The color green in the language of symbolism, stands for purity. This was the reason why emerald jewelry was extensively used in the Mogul age. The Moguls used emerald not only in their jewelry but also to inscribe sacred scripts on it.

The color and clarity of the emerald stone determines the value of the emerald jewelry. It can be as cheap as $25 per carat to approximately $10000 per carat. The darker the green is, the more expensive it is. Cheaper emeralds can be whitish in shade due to impurities like crystal growth within it. The size of the stone will also determine the price of the emerald jewelry.

The two ways by which the luster of the emerald jewelry is increased are:

  • Oiling is a process in which the stone is rubbed with non-colored oils line linseed oil to fill up facets and increase the gloss.

  • Treating the stone with Opticon or other epoxy raisins is a more effective method to cover fissures and facets

Emerald jewelry is for everyone. They can be used in small studs and are highly affordable. Emeralds can be used in all kinds of jewelry like rings, bracelets, necklaces, broaches and tie pins.
