Did you know that the popularity of emerald jewellery dates back as far as the Egyptians? It is said that this eye-catching gemstone was a favourite of Cleopatra’s.
Throughout history, the emerald has been revered for its spiritual and healing properties: it is believed to ward off negative energies, offering protection and good fortune to the wearer. Wrap yourself in an emerald necklace or pop on a pair of emerald earrings to enjoy the positive energies of this stone, said to inspire growth, patience and wisdom.
This vibrant and durable gemstone has also become a popular alternative stone for engagement rings, in place of the traditional diamond. Its positive symbolism and 7.5-8 hardness rating on the Mohs scale make it a worthy alternative, but why not have the best of both worlds? Treat yourself to an emerald and diamond ring to truly dazzle and impress!
