Find Your Lucky Emerald at Fellows Auction, June 12th, 2014

It is the rich, vivid green color that has Emerald fans mesmerized and encapsulated by the gemstone. No matter the era or the fashion style, emeralds have remained en vogue. With a enticing history that involves Spanish conquistadors and being loved by icons like Elizabeth Taylor, it’s no wonder emeralds are everyone’s favorite. Constantly on any trend-setters radar and at the top of any woman’s covet-list–a gorgeous piece of jewelry with an emerald! For me, emeralds set in yellow gold are my favorite. The rich yellow hue adds to the regency of an emerald. In my personal collection, I do have one emerald! It is a Victorian ring set with a square step cut emerald flanked by a small cluster of rose cut diamonds. It took awhile to add an emerald to my collection, for the same reason why most people wait on that “perfect” gemstone. It has to be the right shade of green–maybe more of a bluish-green with a medium tone, or maybe some prefer more of a yellowish-green with a dark tone. It is up to the wearer! No doubt, emeralds and gorgeous stones with a special place in everyone’s heart!
