Emerald (classified as a precious stone) has a deep and vivid colour of green. Emerald gets its name from the French ‘Esmeraude’ and the Middle English word of ‘Emeraude’ which mean “green gem”. Being a member of the beryl family, Emerald takes its colour from the traces of chromium and vanadium amounts occurring during the formation of the stone. Moreover, it has birthmarks which mean inclusions and surface-reaching fractures. These inclusions and its intense green colour make it unique and special. Due to its chemical structure, Emerald is a little fragile and chips easily during faceting. However, a special ‘Emerald Cut’ was developed to maintain the integrity of the Emerald crystal. And it became popular over the years not only for emeralds, but also for other gemstones. It refers to a typical rectangular shape with facets, so the true beauty of this gemstone is brought out. The stone is mined mostly in Columbia and Ural mountains of Russia, Zambia, India, Madagascar, Norway, Brazil, Pakistan, Australia and United States of America.
Emerald Engagement Rings
Emerald with its beauty, and its deep green hue, is a one of the most special gemstones in the world and has been a coveted jewel for ages. Its beauty was celebrated in so many stories, myths and legends. Cleopatra, the Queen of Egypt, is known with her deep and addictive admiration for the Emerald. It is also associated with Venus, the Roman goddess of Love since ancient Romans believed that the Emerald embodied all her qualities; beauty, fertility and goodness. This May birthstone also symbolises the renewal of life and eternal spring.

Emerald Necklaces
While some emeralds may have a yellow-green tint, Glamira prefers the ones with little tints or without tints, because the most valuable emeralds are the ones without tints and as pure green as possible. Glamira produce emerald jewellery by choosing the ones with a richer saturation which means more brilliance and better light. Not only earrings, necklaces, bangles and emerald rings for women, but also rings and cufflinks for men are offered in Glamira collections. You should firstly decide the alloy you will combine with emerald, and then decide on an appropriate carat weight and finally you can match the emerald with petite set gemstones like diamond or sapphire. By designing it this way, you can create your own jewellery; a pair of emerald earrings or a solitaire pendant. With one chosen among emerald engagement rings, you can give the sparkling green of Spring and the balefire of hope for a life full of love to the most special woman in your heart. It is you who will give the meaning to that combination of the brilliant colour of emerald and Glamira designs.
