Emeralds are a precious gemstone and a member of the Beryl family. They are famous for their rich green hue. They are also said to have supernatural powers, such as revealing truth and protecting from disease.  Emeralds are most often displayed on antique emerald rings with rich and vibrant yellow gold in order to maximise the appearance of the striking green. 

Emeralds are 7.5 to 8 on the Mohs scale, meaning they are durable, yet they need to be cared for properly. It is best to clean an emerald with a soft cloth to remove any dust and dirt from the surface of the stone. The fact that many emerald rings currently on the market are vintage emerald rings or Art Deco emerald rings hints at their durability. To prolong the life of your antique emerald rings, you should look after them carefully.

The emerald cut was often used for coloured gemstones from the Victorian era, but became popular in the Art Deco era as a diamond cut. It is called an emerald-cut as the cut was originally designed for emeralds, enabling the beauty of the striking green stones to shine through. The emerald cut dates back to the 1500’s, making it a common feature of antique rings and vintage rings.

The cost of an emerald depends on the quality and size of the stone, as well as market demand. As a point of reference, natural unenhanced emeralds are much rarer than diamonds, meaning they can demand a higher price.

A cluster design is particularly popular for diamond emerald rings across the eras. Diamond and emerald rings often consist of a central emerald surrounded by smaller diamonds. Platinum and yellow gold are the most common metals that are chosen to complete diamond emerald rings. Other popular styles are a solitaire, a single emerald set on a band, or a three stone design with a central emerald and a diamond either side.
