The Uncensored Beauty of Emerald
Some gems are very much like others, while some are astoundingly similar and even virtually identical. However, there is none anywhere on earth which is similar. Every gem is unique, including Emeralds.
Emeralds have a rich history and continue to be the most sought gemstone. Emerald is highly versatile, with a lot of green, making it easy to distinguish them from afar away. These gems follow the same guidelines of the 4Cs of a diamond grading system put forth by the Gemological Institute of America but without the actual grades.
A Peek into the Cut
The most predominant C in a diamond is the cut. However, with coloured stones, it is hardly any different. There are no cut grades, and you will usually see emeralds faceted or in cabochons as well as carved. Emeralds are almost found, in any faceted shape, such as rounds, pears, ovals, and hearts, but emerald-cut emeralds display the best colour with the light return. Based on the appeal, choose the shape that you prefer that is more symmetrical.
Emeralds have fair to good toughness and rate a 7.5 to 8 on the Mohs hardness scale, making it a stone that needs more care contrasted with ruby or sapphire. Handle them with utmost care to last for generations.
The incredible beauty of these natural emeralds is their tapestry of inclusion, such as a Jardin (garden) with newly sprouted leaves against its rich green background giving the meaning of inner life, which has captivated the young and the old. Emeralds are the only gemstone with a specific cut named after them — the classic rectangular step-cut.
People have been charmed by the nature-inspired colour that ranges from a bluish green to pure green with vivid colour saturation, fascinated they seek to put these gems on their engagement rings, making it popular especially with the brides. These characteristics make them a most sought-after gemstone.
The rise in popularity has made emerald rings the hottest trend, with emeralds taking the mainstream against other alternative gemstones.
Although many setting styles fit well with emeralds, such as halo, flush or even tension, emeralds stay more protected in a bezel setting – a protective rim of metal around its girdle. We endorse designing with them when you wish to place emeralds as the centre stone.
The contrast between emeralds and diamonds has made these gems immensely popular. The striking clear white gleaming gems with a green pop of colour are breathtaking. If you consider getting noticed, style them that match your outfit. C. Krishniah Chetty Group of Jewellers have all of them studded as studs, hoops and drop earrings. Each style is unique and vastly varies from the other, captivating the eyes.
Emerald necklaces tend to follow a particular pattern in their design, an array of compact diamonds that surrounds a stand-alone or large emerald at the centre of it, managing to capture the limelight of the piece when it comes to parties or occasions wears.
The timeless Emerald Bangles/Bracelets designed and crafted with a closed back continue to mesmerise with their hand-engraved finish on the inner side. The rich green emeralds are securely set in their skill-full setting, weaving them into rare pieces of fine jewellery that keep the generation gleaming.
