antique emerald rings

AC Silver offers a wide range of antique and vintage emerald rings including fine emerald and diamond cluster rings.


The impressive collection includes stunning antique emerald engagement rings, all of which are accompanied with a gemstone grading report card or certificate.


The rings in our inventory are from various eras and are crafted in a variety of styles and metals.


Different Types of Emeralds

Emeralds are somewhat unique to other gemstones, being only found in shades of green. Some are so pale they are near colourless, although most, and predominately sold by AC Silver, are of a more vibrant green. Emeralds are softer than many other gemstones and include inclusions of some kind.


"Rather than regarding inclusions in coloured stones as harmful, in small sizes and numbers that do not in any way detract from their beauty, they should be regarded as adding to desirability, for they provide identifying characteristics."

Reference: The Connoisseur's Guide to Precious Gemstones, R.Wise, Brunswick House Press.


Colour is generally the most important aspect in determining the value of coloured gemstones. However, emerald clarity is a significant factor, if not more important. Emeralds are crafted in a variety of cuts, predominately faceted, such as: oval, emerald, and rectangular. Alternative cuts are scarcer to the open market and valued accordingly.


When to Buy Emeralds

Emerald jewellery, particularly vintage and antique emerald rings, are a traditional gift for 55th wedding anniversaries. Emerald is the birthstone of May; AC Silver has found this gemstone to be a very popular birthday gift.


Emerald engagement rings, in recent years, have also seen an increase in popularity. Matching sets of emerald earrings and necklaces, also emerald and diamond cluster rings are included within the variety of emerald jewellery. Birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, and Valentine's Day are suitable occasions for gifting emeralds.


The Meaning of Emeralds

Emeralds are often associated with spring, their green colour reminiscent of new grass and life. Sometimes given the name 'stone of successful love', emeralds are believed to nurture the heart chakra. Soothing and healing, emeralds bring fresh life to the spirit. Emeralds traditionally represent a balance between two people, which is perhaps why they are a popular engagement gemstone. Apparently they also provide domestic bliss and loyalty.


Andrew Campbell started trading in antiques during the 1970s. Initially, Andrew lived in the South of England, travelling the country, searching for items of silver to buy. Andrew sold these items at various London markets and antique fairs. Over time, and through selling at a range of venues, Andrew built up a large and diverse customer base from private buyers to national and international trade customers.
