Cool-toned emeralds made with gold, white gold or rose gold create instant statement necklaces. Emerald pendant necklaces layered with simple chains make a decadent accessory while stationed diamond and emerald necklaces offer a delicate touch.

How much do emeralds cost?
A modest emerald can cost less than a thousand dollars, however, it is more common to find emerald-adorned accessories reaching upwards of tens of thousands of dollars. The deeper the color and the finer the cut, the higher the price will reach.
What is the meaning of an emerald?
Emeralds have been valued for thousands of years, with ancient civilizations valuing the stone for its brilliant hue and calming quality. It has been thought to influence love, longevity, and truth and in modern times is often recognized as the May birthstone.
How do you tell if an emerald is real?
All emeralds that we carry are authentic, so if you've purchased an emerald necklace through us, your gem is absolutely real. If you're wondering about a piece of jewelry you already own, the best way to find out if it's real is to take it to your trusted local jeweler. Another key definer of true emeralds, is that unlike diamonds and peridots, emeralds don't refract a fiery light. Instead, an authentic emerald will shine with a low glow.
