About Emerald Earrings

Buying Guide

When you are shopping for emerald earrings, the first thing to consider is the quality of the emeralds. The 4Cs of emerald quality are color, color, color, and color! The more vivid the green, the more valuable the emerald. Even fine quality natural emeralds almost always have birthmarks or inclusions visible inside the gem. For emerald earrings, another important value factor is how well the emeralds match each other. The larger the emeralds, the more difficult it is to find a perfect match.

Because all Gemvara jewelry is made to order, we can hand-select fine-quality emerald to perfectly suit your design.

What is the meaning of emerald in the language of gems? The gem of Venus, emerald has long symbolized love and rebirth. Angelina Jolie famously wore an amazing pair of emerald earrings to the Oscars in 2009 that boosted sales of similar earrings around the world.

Emerald is the May birthstone and the 20th and 35th anniversary gem.

Emerald earrings are most often crafted in white or yellow gold or platinum. Silver and emerald earrings are more difficult to care for because silver polish could damage the stone: use extra caution when polishing a silver necklace set with an emerald or choose gold for the setting that touches the emerald.

Avoid cleaning emerald with hot soapy water or steam and never clean an emerald in an ultrasonic cleaner. Clean emerald earrings with mild dish soap: use a soft brush behind the stone where dust can collect.

Gemvara's fine quality emerald earrings are designed to be passed down for generations to come, crafted by hand in the United States.

Jewelry Care

With a little care, your fine jewelry will keep its good looks forever. The best way to clean your jewelry is by soaking it in a bowl of warm water with a few drops of ordinary dish detergent. If needed, use a soft brush where dust and soap can collect. Then just rinse and pat dry with a soft cloth.

You won't have to clean your jewelry as often if you put it on after applying hairspray, perfume, and cosmetics. Be sure to remove your jewelry before strenuous activities like sports. Keep jewelry away from chlorine and other household chemicals. Always make sure it is dry and clean by wiping with a cloth before putting it away.

To protect the beauty of your jewelry, don't keep it in a tangle in a jewelry box. Remember, gems can scratch metal or each other. When you travel, make sure your jewelry pieces don't rub against each other in your bag. Store each piece separately or wrap each one in tissue paper or a soft cloth.
