The name “emerald” comes from the ancient Greek word for green, “smaragdus.” Emerald was said to be the gemstone of the goddess Venus (the goddess of love and beauty) in ancient Greece and Rome, and was considered to aid in fertility.
Cleopatra, The Mughal Dynasty in India were the emerald’s biggest fan. While the African desert supplied royalty with emeralds throughout the Middle Ages, it was Spain’s exploits and subsequent colonization of South America in the 16th century that brought the emerald to the main stage. Today Brazil and Columbia produces more emeralds annually than any other country. Emeralds can be paired elegantly with cut diamonds, uncut diamonds and 22K gold for striking, statement jewelry .
When shopping for emeralds, professionals generally agree that emeralds are most of all about color. The most desirable emeralds are highly transparent and colored bluish green to pure green, “with vivid color saturation and tone that’s not too dark,” according to GIA. The color should be “evenly distributed, with no eye-visible color zoning.”
Sometimes the appearance of an emerald, meaning its color, is associated with the location of where it was mined. GIA says that emeralds mined in Colombia are said to have a warmer and more intense pure green color, while Zambian emeralds are said to have a cooler, more bluish green color. Eye-clean emeralds, where there are no inclusions visible to the unaided eye, are very valuable because they’re so rare and hard to find in the market. Emeralds typically contain inclusions and because of that most jewelers and buyers understand and accept the presence of inclusions.
Bollywood stars Deepika Padukone and Madhuri Dixit wear green emeralds with neutral tones to bring out the color of this majestic stone. White, cream, black, peach and gold are classic combination for emeralds as it brings out the vibrancy of the stone's color. But clothing with solid colors is also best suited for showcasing this gemstone like Shilpa Shetty and Kareena Khan have adorned here. Again, make-up and hair needs to be classic and elegant as well. Wearing a loud ensemble with a bold emerald piece will tend to confuse the eye and distract from the overall look. It's best to use emerald jewelry as a focal point and wear clothing that brings out the gemstone's great features.
