Buyers Guide to Emerald Engagement Rings


Buyers Guide to Emerald Engagement Rings


If you have been looking for engagement rings in the Hatton Garden jewellery quarter, you are likely to have come across some dazzling diamonds and beautiful handcrafted designs. Though a large segment of the market is trending towards diamonds incorporated into engagement pieces, Hatton Garden jewellers also possess engagement rings in other gemstone varieties! The emerald is perhaps one of the most well-known gemstones, distinguished by its sensational green colour. In this article, we delve a little bit deeper into this wonderful gemstone.


What is an Emerald

Emeralds fall within the beryl family and their stunning green colour is derived from the presence of chromium and vanadium. They can be found in Colombia, Brazil and South Africa (though other sources do exist). Emeralds are very rarely flawless and so inevitably you will be able to see marks within the stone with the naked eye.


What makes a good Emerald

But what is it that dictates the value of emerald engagement rings in Hatton Garden? It is the colour, clarity, cut and carat weight of an emerald that denotes its quality. According to the Gemmological Institute of America (GIA), the most desirable stones tend to be bluish green to pure green with vivid colour saturation. As with all coloured gemstones, personal preference is a big driving factor and different colours appeal to different tastes.


Caring for Emerald Engagement Rings

The stone itself rates 7.5 on the Mohs scale, which measures the relative ease or difficulty with which one mineral can be scratched by another. Emeralds, lovely as they are, are delicate and you should most certainly not have them cleaned using an ultrasonic or steam cleaner. Equally most Hatton Garden jewellers would advise that emerald rings be removed before commencing any activity that might damage them.
