Five Reasons I Love Emeralds
For centuries, people have been mesmerized by the captivating beauty of emeralds. These vivid green gemstones are said to symbolize fertility and love, rebirth and growth - even royalty! Like a siren song, I have also been drawn into this fascination and admit that I love designing and creating pieces with emeralds. My love and appreciation for this gemstone are obvious throughout my work, such as my use of an emerald baguette as the centerpiece in my Color Wave Rectangle Pendant Necklace or the splendor of emeralds in my Sundown Cigar Band Ring. It opens the imagination for so many reasons but I thought it would be good to mention my top 5!
As a lover of history, this is what first drew me in. From their emergence in Ancient Egypt to today, emeralds have remained an eternal symbol of fertility, renewal, and rebirth. Adorning the tombs of Pharaohs for thousands of years, these revered gems also grew popular with Greeks and Romans as a wellspring for fresh starts and new beginnings. Over the years, emeralds have been sparkling beacons representing hope across all cultures. These powerful gemstones still grace many wrists worldwide and will continue to for years to come.
Admittedly the bright green color of emeralds is, well... amazing!

Symbolizing new life and growth, the hue of vibrant emeralds is often linked to hope, wealth, status, and luck worldwide.
