An emerald-cut diamond engagement ring is quite a modern take on the traditional engagement ring, and they are becoming increasingly popular.

Why Choose an Emerald Engagement Ring?
People have been wearing emerald rings for centuries. In the past, people believed that emeralds offered an anti-inflammatory effect. It was common for people to give emerald rings to people who frequently experienced swelling, especially around the eyes. Emerald gemstones historically represent various gods and goddesses. In today’s world, emeralds are firmly associated with love. They are given to mark what people hope is the start of a strong, long-lasting commitment to another person. Emeralds are also associated with fortune and peace.
But alongside the romantic history of emerald rings, there are many other great reasons to choose an emerald engagement ring:
A distinctive option
More and more people are seeking something a little different regarding engagement rings. Emerald gemstones have become increasingly popular over recent years and have been seen on the fingers of celebrities and other high-profile people.
A celebrity favourite
There is a growing demand for emerald engagement rings, but this trend was common even as far back as the 1950s when Jackie Kennedy wore an emerald-and-diamond combination following her engagement to John F. Kennedy.
A symbol of love, faith and growth
Emerald rings have long been a symbol of love, faith, growth and hope, which makes them perfect as engagement rings. Alongside that, they are the birthstone for May, which can make them ideal if you’re planning a springtime proposal.
Types of Emerald Engagement Rings
Emerald solitaire engagement rings
Emerald solitaire engagement rings are among the most popular options available. These are often complemented with white gold and platinum bands. Accent diamonds also look stunning and give you valuable extra sparkle.
Some people opt for emerald halo rings, though the natural sparkle and beauty of your gemstone may be overlooked if you opt for one of these. Many people place diamonds around the emerald stone or surround diamond centre stones with emerald halos.
The art deco period is often associated with luxury and glamour, and art deco engagement rings are no exception. Emeralds, in particular, are a popular choice for art deco engagement rings due to their rich colour and classic style.
Emerald cuts are noted for their enlarged appearance. They are amongst the most popular options available if you’re seeking something to help you mark your commitment in style. Emerald cuts are also popular and are often complemented with accent gemstones. Oval cuts also have an elongated shape, which makes the gemstones appear bigger.
Oval and emerald cuts can make fingers appear both longer and slimmer. Cushion cut stones are regularly used for older or vintage-looking engagement rings. Halo settings are ideal for those seeking a vintage look and suit anyone seeking a blend of the old and the new when you’re buying a modern ring. Pavé settings can highlight the various facets of the gemstone and are often used to create bespoke emerald engagement rings.

Some jewellers believe emeralds are more suited to certain types of metal than others. This is due to factors like the gemstone's inclusion, condition and clarity. Silver is thought to be less suitable than other metals. Rose gold, platinum and yellow gold are often used instead. 18k metals should provide your emerald with all the support it needs without compromising the look, strength or appearance of the stone.
Emeralds are tougher than you might think and are harder than gems, including amethyst. They are also more scratch-resistant than you might think. Emeralds can crack, so it’s important to seek out stones that either have no surface-reaching inclusions or only a small number.
Emeralds are Type III stones, so some inclusions are to be expected. Nonetheless, the best emeralds are eye-clean, which means they can offer green flashes. High-quality emeralds are actually rarer than diamonds, as much more effort is needed to source them.
To maintain the appearance of a natural emerald, you should clean it by hand with warm soapy water and a small soft brush. Emeralds rank well on the hardness scale, so you can wear your ring daily. Just ensure you remove it before carrying out any particularly strenuous task. Emeralds are perfect for those that love the natural green look and don’t mind removing their jewellery before they begin strenuous activities.
An emerald ring is a perfect way to declare your love. Emeralds are associated with faithfulness, trust and eternal love, making them the perfect symbol of your commitment. Furthermore, emeralds are incredibly rare and valuable, so they’re a luxurious and unique choice for an engagement ring. Whether you choose a classic solitaire or a more modern setting, an emerald engagement ring is sure to impress. So if you're looking for a ring that truly represents your everlasting love, an emerald engagement ring is a perfect choice.
Emeralds are a perfect choice for an engagement ring as they symbolise enduring love and faithfulness. The rich green colour of emeralds represents new life and growth, their hardness a symbol of strength and resilience. For many couples, an emerald engagement ring is a way to show their commitment to each other and their belief in the longevity of their relationship.
Emeralds also have a long history of being associated with romance and royalty. Cleopatra was said to be particularly fond of emeralds, and in ancient Rome, emeralds were given as gifts to express love and affection. Today, couples who choose an emerald engagement ring continue this tradition of giving a gift that symbolises their love and commitment.
If you're trying to decide between emeralds and diamonds for a special jewellery piece, you might wonder which is more expensive. In general, diamonds are more expensive than emeralds. However, a few factors can affect the price of both gems. For example, emeralds are typically less transparent than diamonds, so they tend to be less popular in engagement rings. However, emeralds come in many colours, which can affect their price.
On the other hand, diamonds are only found in a limited colour palette. In addition, the size and quality of both gems can influence their cost. So, if you're looking for a unique and eye-catching piece of jewellery, an emerald may be a good option. But if you're looking for something classic and timeless, a diamond is likely your best bet.
Emeralds are beautiful, verdant green gemstones that have been treasured for centuries. Though they are stunning in all types of jewellery, they are particularly well-suited for rings and pendants. Given their delicate nature, many people wonder if emeralds can go in water. The short answer is yes; emeralds can safely be exposed to water.
However, there are a few things to remember to ensure your emerald jewellery looks its best. First, avoid exposing your emerald to chlorinated water, which can cause the colour to fade. Second, remove your emerald jewellery before applying lotions or perfumes, as these can also dull the stone's lustre. While it's safe for emeralds to go in water, we'd recommend removing them before bathing or showering and when using any hygiene or cleaning products.
