The name emerald derives from the greek word smaragdos, which in turn came perhaps from the Persian. It means, green stone. But during that time, green stone was reffered not only to Emeralds but also most other green stones as well green sapphire.

Emerald belongs to a group called Beryl. Beryl is known for its transparency as well the variety of colours. Beryl is seen in a range of colours including light blue, also known as aquamarine, light pink, also known as morganite and a range of greys, yellows and oranges.

Emerald is a classic gemstone occurring in jewellery dated back to the 1800’s. These antique looking gemstones can be made into very modern designs or even bespoke vintage designs for that vintage girl.
Emerald is the birthstone for May, so adding a little emerald into a piece is a beautiful gesture.

Emeralds have a hardness of 7.5-8 making it a little softer than other gemstones. This hardness is also the reasoning for Emeralds having visible inclusions. Some inclusions cannot be seen and the less inclusions in an Emerald the more valuable it will be. Although there are inclusions in Emeralds that depict a certain nature essence such as the ‘garden affect’  or Jardin, which means garden in French with the moss like inclusions and lines making it look like a beautiful green garden.

Emeralds are currently mined in Colombia, Brazil, and Zambia. Emeralds are mined throughout the world (Pakistan, Afghanistan, Russia, Australia, United States) but these are the three major sources. Colombia arguably produces the finest Emeralds.
