Emeralds have been prized for their beauty since antiquity—emerald mines existed in Egypt as early as 300 BC, and these gorgeous green gems were worn as jewelry in ancient Greece and Rome. Europeans were introduced to the beauty of emeralds in the 1500s when the Spanish invaded South America, where the Incas had prized emeralds for hundreds of years. During that same period, emeralds were cherished by the Mogul emperors of India, who believed that the gems were talismans that offered the protection of the gods.
Legend has it that wearing emeralds can give you the ability to foresee the future and see the truth. It has also been believed that emerald has the power to cure disease and protect against evil.
Emerald is part of the mineral family beryl, which also includes aquamarine. Emeralds are deep green or greenish blue and range in saturation from nearly opaque to very clear. When a green stone in this mineral family is too pale to qualify as an emerald it is called a “green beryl.”
Unlike diamonds, whose apparent clarity is evaluated using 10x magnification, emerald clarity is graded with the naked eye. These gems contain internal fractures called inclusions, but (unlike with diamonds) these inclusions don’t necessarily decrease an emerald’s value. In fact, if the internal fractures create an appealing pattern it can raise an emerald’s value. The term for an emerald’s internal pattern is jardin (garden in French) and, much like human fingerprints, every emerald’s jardin is unique.
Because of these internal inclusions, emeralds are not as durable as some other gemstones. They rank 8 on the Mohs scale of hardness, behind sapphires (at 9) and diamonds (at 10, the highest number), making emeralds a bit more fragile than these other gemstones. That’s not to say that you can’t have a gorgeous green emerald engagement ring if that’s your heart’s desire, just that you should take a little extra care with it.
