Going Green – Emerald Weddings & Engagement Rings

Feb 17, 2011

With hints of spring in the air and St. Patrick’s Day on the horizon, there will soon be plenty of green to go around. Be encouraged by the coming season and consider using green for your wedding inspiration.

Of course if you’re looking forward to an engagement this spring instead of a wedding, incorporate those springy greens into a ring. Emeralds come in a wide range of shades, from deep blue-greens to more vibrant yellow-greens. These beautiful gemstones look good as solitaires or accompanied by diamonds and also have an elegant vintage flair. Emeralds were also the choice of engagement ring for Jackie Kennedy and Wallis Simpson.

Emeralds are pretty hard gemstones, but are also brittle and contain inclusions which means that emeralds are prone to chips and nicks. Most emerald end up being treated with resins or oils to counteract this fragmenting tendency. These treatments usually result in the emerald looking more translucent. We recommend not wearing an emerald engagement ring when you’re setting out to do rough work with your hands. Emeralds are also frequently found in bezel settings, which help to protect the stone from wear and tear.
