Why Choose an Emerald Engagement Ring?

Having an Emerald centre stone as your engagement ring is interesting, unique, creative, and breathtaking.  Emeralds are not “too soft” as they are quite scratch resistant. Being a 7.5-8 on the mohs hardness scale with a diamond being a 9. This means they are durable for everyday wear; they are also highly versatile stones that work with a wide variety of settings and designs. This allows the brilliant green hue of an emerald to be used in both traditional and more modern engagement rings. Generally, they are also less expensive than diamonds, therefore, they are more affordable choice when looking for your perfect piece.

The Timeless Allure of an Emerald

Emeralds were found in Egypt around 1500 BC. However, some estimate that the oldest Emeralds are 2.97 billion years old. In fact, one of Cleopatra’s favourite stones is the Emerald. She even claimed ownership of all emerald mines in Egypt during her reign.

Emerald gemstones were discovered in South America in the 16th century by the Spanish. It took the Spanish conquistadors nearly twenty years to find them because the Muzo Indians of Colombia had well-hidden and prized emerald mines.

Today, the emerald is a symbol of loyalty, new beginnings, peace, and security. Making it not only a beautiful gemstone to wear, but also a meaningful jewellery gift to be treasured by the receiver. Emeralds are believed to be encouraging, calming, and balancing because of their colour. They are thought to promote creativity and restore optimistic hope in dreams and visions.

The 4 C’s of Emerald Gemstones

At Waldemar Jewellers, our proficiency in determining the quality of jewels and gemstones is one of the reasons we have earned the reputation of being Sydney’s best jeweller. When assessing the quality of sapphire, we follow the four C’s; cut, colour, clarity and carat weight.

Cut: The cutter must consider the rough depth of colour, durability and inclusions when making cutting decisions. Mistakes cause weight loss, which greatly reduces the value of a potentially valuable gem.

Colour: The most desirable emerald colour is green to pure green, with vivid colour saturation and tone that’s not too dark. The most-prized emeralds are highly transparent. Their colour is evenly distributed, with no eye-visible colour zoning. If the hue is too yellowish or too bluish, the stone is not emerald.

Clarity: Emeralds typically contain inclusions that are visible to the unaided eye. Because of this, trade members and some consumers understand and accept the presence of inclusions in emeralds. Eye-clean emeralds are especially valuable because they are so rare.

Carat Weight & Size: Fashioned emeralds come in a wide range of sizes. There are emeralds in museums and private collections that weigh hundreds of carats. At the other extreme are tiny emeralds that weigh fractions of a carat. The smallest sizes range from 1 mm to 5 mm, with weights from 0.02 to 0.50 carat, while 1 to 5 carat stones are popular as center stones.
