About Emerald

Stone Information

Emerald is the most famous member of the beryl family. There are other green gems, like tourmaline and peridot, but emerald is the one that's always associated with the lushest landscapes and the richest greens. Ireland is the Emerald Isle. Seattle, in the US state of Washington, is the Emerald City. Thailand's most sacred religious icon is called the Emerald Buddha, even though it's carved from green jadeite. The first known emerald mines were in Egypt, dating from at least 330 BC into the 1700s. Cleopatra was known to have a passion for emerald, and used it in her royal adornments. As the gem of spring, emerald is the perfect choice as the birthstone for the month of May. It's also the gem of the twentieth and thirty-fifth wedding anniversaries.

Legend & Lore

Legends endowed the wearer with the ability to foresee the future when emerald was placed under the tongue, as well as to reveal truth and be protected against evil spells. Emerald was once also believed to cure diseases like cholera and malaria. Wearing an emerald was believed to reveal the truth or falseness of a lover's oath as well as make one an eloquent speaker.

Color

Emerald is the green to greenish blue variety of beryl, a mineral species that also includes aquamarine as well as beryls in other colors. Gem experts differ on the degree of green that makes one stone an emerald and another stone a less-expensive green beryl. Some people in the trade tend to give the name emerald to any green beryl colored by chromium. But to most gemologists, gemological laboratories, and colored stone dealers, it is more correct to call a stone green beryl when its color is "too light" for it to be classified as emerald.

Emerald

Cleaning

Some estimates state that 90 percent or more of emeralds are fracture-filled. Since the great majority of fashioned natural emeralds contain filled fractures, it's risky to clean them ultrasonically or with steam. Ultrasonic vibrations can weaken already-fractured stones, and hot steam can cause oil or unhardened resin to sweat out of fractures. Using warm, soapy water coupled with gentle scrubbing is the safest way to clean emeralds.

J154310 - Affinity Diamond 1/7cttw & Gemstone Deco Style Ring, Sterling 4.5 5 37 37
blue or black? i received my 2day...i love this ring but, the gems look black instead of blue its so pretty thoe. im a sucker for anything affinity! im keeping it! 02-13-12
Diamond & Emerald ring The emeralds are scratched and dull,the diamonds VERY small. The earring are pretty that match the ring. 02-08-12
Pretty But Not As Expected I ordered both the emerald and sapphire. The emeralds were chipped and scratched and the sapphires were almost black and appeared to be onyx until turned a certain way in direct light. I had to send both back. The diamonds were not very noticeable either. I did think it had a vintage look and the fit was correct. 01-24-12
Wanted to love this... I love the setting and craftsmanship of this piece, however, the ring I received lacked any sparkle. The emeralds had a lovely color, yet were not set completely flush and I was afraid with time they may have shifted. The diamonds did not appear to have any fire even in the sun. It did also fit true to size. Unfortunately I sent it back. 01-22-12
Not For Me! I must be different. I wanted this ring as a future alternative wedding band. I have a gold & ruby one now representing 40 yrs. of marriage. I wanted a sapphire one to represent 45 yrs. of marriage. For some reason, this looks like a man's ring to me even though it's a little slimmer than most men's rings. Have to return. Sorry. 12-07-11
Beautiful ring paired paired with my wedding band I just want you to know that I love this ring. I wear it with my diamond baquette wedding ring....and they really compliment each other. I had bought the ring with the blue sapphires. It is different and catches everyones attention, especiallly with the diamond ring I have it paired up with. I wanted a weide band and this truly fits the bill. Thank you and now I'm waitng for ring # J112566 to go on easy pay, but it may never do that. That one is beautiful and would be an exact match to my baquette ring. Love the clearness and sparkle of the affinity diamonds! 11-27-11
Love this ring-wear every day I ordered this ring as a present to myself. I had worn a family ring on my right hand for 30 years then passed it on to my neice on her 30th birthday in keeping with our family tradition. I wanted a ring that had a vintage feel and one that hugged my finger. I'm a knitter and don't want my jewelry snagging my yarn. This ring is perfect. I'm a May baby so I ordered the emerald version. 11-23-11
i love this ring This ring came right on time for my Birthday,its so pretty people at work want to look at my ring every time i wear it. 10-12-11
another great Affinity purchase I've been wearing an Affinity diamond ring for several years, love it and always get compliments. I expect that will be the case with this one~got the emerald choice. Truly beautiful. And I "needed" a piece of fine jewelry in green and white to show support for my daughter's school, Michigan State University. This is perfect! 09-17-11
SPARKLY This ring is really beautiful on the hand. I got the saphire and the color is great. There is a lot of shine and glitz for your money. The band is wide so, it's not for tiny fingers. I love wide and it's very comfortable to me. I would recomend this to anybody. Love it. 09-03-11
Disappointed Read all the reviews, I must have rec;vd the bad one in the batch. I found the emeralds too dark, hard to tell they were emeralds, not much sparkle overall, too bad because I have been waiting so long. to find a emerald ring to go with a emerald necklace I have. Oh well, I will wait for something else. I have many other Affinity pieces I love, look forward to future showings!! 08-25-11
Beautiful Ring This ring is Beautiful !...... Unfortunately I returned it only because it was a little too wide for what I wanted. I wanted to wear it with my engagment ring as a wedding band, but both rings together was a bit much. I'm sorry I had to send it back. If I was going to wear it alone, I would highly recommend it. It's beautiful. 08-12-11
