Green with Envy

I’ve always been a fan of emeralds. It could partially be because it’s my birthstone (May), but I think I’ve always been attracted to the mysterious and delicate nature of emeralds. They are somewhat soft and prone to inclusions (cracks and imperfections) which means that finding a good stone is all the more rare.

It’s nice to see celebrities wearing more emeralds, like Miranda Kerr (left), in a stunning emerald and pearl necklace and Angelina Jolie (right) in emerald drops. Angelina, in particular, is often seen wearing emeralds–I have a feeling she has an affinity for the green stones that goes beyond the aesthetic.

Want to learn more about emeralds? Check out the website for Gemfields, a Zambian emerald mining company. You can learn a lot here about the lore and the history of emeralds, and why they are so precious. You can also shop our selection of emeralds–hopefully you’ll find your own treasure!
