May Birthstone Emerald

Prized since ancient times, a fine emerald can be more expensive than a high quality diamond of the same carat weight. Emerald comes in a variety of green shades, the rarest and most sought after being a deep vivid green. The name ‘emerald’ is derived from the French “esmeraude” and the Greek root “smargados” which means ‘green gemstone’.

Emeralds are found in many countries, with Colombia and Brazil being the major producers. Colombian emeralds have a reputation for being the finest in the world. With a hardness of 7.5 – 8 out of 10 on the Moh’s scale, emeralds are an ideal choice for jewelry for their durability.
