When you are shopping for emerald jewelry, the most important value factor to consider is the quality of the emerald. 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. 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. Style icons Jacqueline Kennedy and the Duchess of Windsor wore emerald engagement rings. Angelina Jolie wore amazing emerald jewelry, earrings and a matching ring, to the Oscars in 2009 boosting demand for emerald jewelry around the world.
Emerald is May's birthstone and the 20th and 35th anniversary gem. Because the green color is intense, you will want to match the color of emerald earrings or an emerald necklace closely to the color of an emerald ring. Emerald jewelry is most often crafted in white or yellow gold or platinum. Silver is generally not recommended for emerald jewelry because the metal is not durable enough to protect the gem. Although emerald is a very hard gem, emerald rings shouldn't be worn when working with your hands or exercising vigorously. If you are active, you should choose a setting that protects the gem if you plan on wearing your ring every day. Avoid cleaning emerald jewelry with hot soapy water or steam and never clean an emerald in an ultrasonic cleaner. Clean emerald with mild dish soap: use a soft brush behind the gems where dust can collect.
