Spring into May with a garden of Emeralds
Emerald symbolizes rebirth and the abundance of the life force. The rich green hue brings to mind the regeneration of life in spring and hope of new possibilities. Emeralds have a network of inclusions that the French call ‘jardin’, or garden, because it resembles foliage. These inclusions are the fingerprints or birthmarks, giving each emerald a distinct personality and distinguishing them as truly natural gemstones.

We stock a wide selection of Emeralds in various shapes, sizes, and tones ranging from light to dark green. Call us for all you Emerald needs 1-800-811-3366.

Emerald History
The first known emerald mines were in Egypt, dating from at least 330 BC into the 1700s. The Queen of Egypt, Cleopatra, was known to have a passion for emerald, and used it in her royal adornments. Its name comes from the ancient Greek word for green, “smaragdus.” Legend also states that emerald was one of the four precious stones given by God to King Solomon. These four stones were said to have endowed the king with power over all creation.

Emerald Powers
Emerald’s lush green has soothed souls and excited imaginations since antiquity. The ancients associated emerald with the Greek goddess Venus, the goddess of love and beauty, and it was said to protect lovers from unfaithfulness. If the heart was loyal, the gem would glow in a beautiful green color, but if the heart was went astray, it would turn a different, lifeless colour.
