Intro to Emerald Engagement Rings

Cleopatra is one of the most famous emerald connoisseurs, using the stone in many applications throughout her life. Elizabeth Taylor, who famously played Cleopatra in the 1963 film, also had a love of emeralds that culminated in her 18.6-carat emerald ring gifted by her husband Richard Burton. Emerald engagement rings have also been worn by celebrities such as Jackie O, Victoria Beckham, Halle Berry and Angelina Jolie.

When it comes to emeralds, clarity is regarded a little differently than traditional diamond clarity. Natural emeralds often have small inclusions but these inclusions are thought to add personality to the rich colours of the stone. In fact, inclusions can add to the overall natural beauty of an emerald.

Emerald is believed to symbolize truth, love, balance and good fortune. As an engagement ring, emerald’s symbolism is especially powerful and communicates the desire for a long, healthy marriage. As the May birthstone, emerald is also wonderful for couples getting married or engaged in May.

The stone’s green hues lend to impressive lustre in many shapes. Popular emerald engagement ring cuts include round brilliant, oval, cushion and emerald cut engagement rings.

Emerald Engagement Ring Review

Overall satisfying purchase

Excellent processing time, took much shorter than I imagined to obtain the ring from the US to Asia. Packaging was impressive, very well done. The ring design was simple yet classic, and my wife loves it. Personally, I feel that the emerald was a little too pale for my liking, and the weight of the ring seemed a tad light, however it was overall a satisfying purchase. I aim to make a bigger purchase in the future when I have the budget to do so.

LOVE the Ring

This ring is stunning and you will not be disappointed. Note the quality of the diamonds in the description as well as 18K white gold. Also, medium-dark-green emerald. This piece sparkles and shines even more than the eternity band I bought from Blue Nile a few years ago (and that is saying something)! My wife loves it and sleeps with it on her hand 😊
