Cleopatra, Liz Taylor, Princess Diana – they all adored the enigmatic emerald.
Emerald is famous for their compelling, deep green colour, channelling the rich hues of the lushest landscapes and the richest greens.
The precious gemstones are associated with prosperity, abundance and immortality. For Mughal Emperors, the emerald represented the colour of paradise while the Ancient Romans and Greeks believed they were a representation of the Goddess Venus.
It’s no surprise emerald’s lavish properties and intense gleam captured the hearts of ancient royalty. The Egyptian queen, Cleopatra, was so obsessed with the gem she adorned herself and her palace with the beguiling precious stone.
Held in high esteem by royalty, rulers and legendary Hollywood stars, why not treat yourself to one this year.
