Undoubtedly, diamonds still remain the most popular choice when it comes to engagement rings. But for those looking for something a little different, there are a range of other gemstones that are making their way into the popular canon.
One such gemstone is the gorgeous emerald. It adds a unique and exotic flavour to your proposal, and carries with it a history of proverb and ancient belief - stemming back to Ancient Egypt, the Romans and their goddess of love, Venus. This makes it a truly enchanting gemstone ring entwined with a regal and rich history.
But why has it become so popular recently? In this article we’ll take a look at why choosing an emerald engagement ring is becoming more and more the norm.
It’s beautifully unique.
First and foremost, choosing an emerald engagement ring is a fantastic way to offer something unique to your partner. It’s perhaps a way of suggesting that your relationship or love is more than just a traditional love story - there’s something deeper. Not only is it symbolically unique, but an emerald makes for a truly enchanting ring that complements any skin tone beautifully.
It has a rich history.
As mentioned previously, emeralds have a rich history spanning many cultures and beliefs. From being both intrinsically linked to Ancient Egyptian culture and representing the Roman goddess Venus, emeralds represent Hope, Prophecy, Calmness & Faithfulness between lovers - all beautiful virtues that will certainly help a marriage flourish.
Emeralds complement a variety of styles.
With emerald engagement rings, simple, vintage styles work well alongside more lavish, custom designs. With a variety of different cuts available, emeralds are versatile and can satisfy any number of different tastes. As such, 18 carat yellow and rose-gold metals are a beautiful choice to complement the elegant hue of the emerald, as well as providing adequate support with the right amount of delicacy.
