Emerald is a form of the mineral beryl, which is green in colour due to the presence of chromium and sometimes vanadium. Emerald is one of the four traditional gemstones, along with diamond, sapphire and ruby.
These rings have become increasingly popular in recent years, in part due to the vibrant gemstone, which offers an attractive alternative to the traditional diamond engagement ring. An iconic example is Jackie Kennedy's emerald engagement ring, which was a Colombian emerald surrounded by diamonds.
Because of their vibrant colour, emeralds are often used in statement necklaces. One of the most famous is the 'Cambridge Emerald' necklace belonging to the Royal House of Great Britain. The necklace, which can also be made into a tiara, contains nine large emeralds totalling around 500 carats.
To maintain the sparkle of the emerald jewellery, it should be cleaned gently using warm water and a soft soap, without using abrasives or ultrasonic cleaning which can be harmful to the stones. Make sure emerald jewellery is stored separately from other stones or metals to prevent scratches, and try to avoid exposure to chemicals such as perfumes or cosmetics and temperature variations.
