Emerald ‘Nothing Greens Greener’ is the best way that could have possibly described emeralds and Pliny the Elder chose to say it this way. For centuries the vivid green color of emerald has won the hearts of people from all over the world. Whether kings and rulers of the past or modern-day celebrities,’ emeralds continue to remain highly sought after. The basic color of emeralds is green, which also gives this lovely gemstone its name. The Greek word ‘smarados’ which is derived from the French word ‘esmeralde’ denotes the color green. Emeralds are one of the oldest gemstones that ever existed and date back to at least 4000 years in history. In the Vedas, the holy scriptures of the Hindus emeralds are referred as stones that have healing properties. Emeralds are also said to be harbingers of good luck and success. Emeralds look beautiful in every possible form of jewelry whether emerald rings, Tiffany emerald earrings, or emerald pendants. Whether simple emerald jewelry or coupled with sparkling diamonds, these stones always stand apart.
