Vintage emerald jewellery

Throughout the centuries, this gemstone has been revered. The emerald has gone by many names throughout its rich history. In ancient India, the emerald was referred to as "marakata" which translates as "the green growth." The word "emerald" that we use to describe the stone today, most likely derives from the Latin word, "smaragdus."

The history of the emerald can be traced back to the ancient markets of Europe and Asia where this breath-taking stone was traded around 6000 years ago. The emerald was prized by many ancient cultures, both for its beauty and its rich symbolism. Legends even said that wearing a piece of emerald jewellery would allow you to see into the future – some cultures believed that placing the emerald under the tongue was the best way to achieve clairvoyant powers.

Emeralds were treasured by the Incas, and later, it was the Spanish conquistadors who introduced the spectacular South American emerald variety to Europe. From this point onwards, the gemstone was favoured by European royal families, featuring in many sets of royal jewels. Even Queen Victoria''''''''s snake-shaped engagement ring, given to her by Prince Albert, featured a striking emerald.

In addition to royalty, 20th-century Hollywood film stars were often known for their love of emeralds. Among others, Elizabeth Taylor was famed for her impressive collection of emerald jewellery, worth nearly $100 million.

Emeralds are most often associated with vitality and the powers of rejuvenation. This makes them a wonderful fit if you''''''''re looking for a May birthstone gift, as they embody the ideas of spring and new beginnings. In relation to this, many societies throughout history have shared the belief that emeralds have the power to cure diseases.

As well as these restorative powers, emeralds are believed to bring the wearer protection, wellness, and good fortune in all walks of life. They have also been thought to hold calming qualities and believed to encourage trust and protection for the wearer.

Because of the emerald''''''''s calming and encouraging symbolism, a piece of emerald jewellery would be a fantastic gift for anyone who is setting off on a new adventure, perhaps starting a new job or moving to a new home.
