Emerald rings have long been popular because of their lush, earthy green gemstones. Emerald rightly takes it's place in the world of gems as one of the three most popular colored gemstones.
Emeralds have an interesting legacy of violence,
romance, and controversy. The first emerald mines were opened in Egypt
although the exact dates are not known. The Cleopatra emerald mine opened as early as 300 BC. Ancient peoples attributed all kinds of magical qualities to emeralds. Antique emerald rings and emerald jewelry symbolized fertility and rebirth. Scholars wore emeralds to strengthen their memory and become more eloquent. Lovers wore emeralds to learn the truth of their loved ones's intentions. In the sixteenth century violence became part of the emerald's history when Spanish conquistadors looted thousands of emeralds from the mines in South America. Emerald's legacy is as eternal as the stone itself.
