Emerald Butterfly Earrings ESA00478.

Crafted in 18ct white gold, emerald Butterfly Earrings set with twelve round top quality green emeralds for a stunning feminine look to your elite style.

The oldest emeralds date back almost three billion years. However, they were first mined in Egypt around 1500BC, where it was believed that emeralds stood for fertility and rebirth. Mummies were often buried with them to symbolise eternal youth. The Incas and Aztecs also valued these rich green gems, worshipping them as gods.

One of four gemstones globally recognised as ‘precious’ (the others being diamonds, sapphires and rubies), emeralds are made from beryl. They get their green colour from trace amounts of chromium and/or vanadium. Unlike the other precious stones, which can be found in a variety of colours, emeralds are only ever green, though their hues range from yellow-green to deep jade.

The palest stones are not actually emeralds, but rather known as green beryl. The most desirable emerald colours are bluish-green to green, with vivid saturation and medium to medium-dark tone.

18ct White Emerald Butterfly Earrings. EMERALDS ARE RARER AND OFTEN MORE EXPENSIVE THAN DIAMONDS

When it comes to rare and expensive gemstones, most of us immediately think of diamonds, but, in fact, emeralds are more than 20 times rarer than diamonds and, therefore, often command a higher price. That said, emeralds are an ideal option for those looking to maximise size of stone with budget, since they appear larger than a diamond of the same carat weight because they are less dense, the emeralds used in these 18ct White Emerald Butterfly Earrings are a beautiful colour and a very good quality.

Unlike diamonds, where clarity plays a significant role in valuing a stone, inclusions are to be expected in emeralds. Indeed, they can be found in 99% of natural emeralds so if you find a stone without, chances are it’s synthetic. The inclusions are formed of gases, other minerals and crystals, and liquids that emeralds take on during the crystallisation process and are often viewed as desirable features. Known as ‘jar din’ (French for garden) in the trade, they can create attractive patterns, making no two stones the same, which actually increases the value of the gem. Emerald clarity refers to what the stone looks like on the inside and is usually assessed with the naked eye, rather than under magnification.
