This month is the perfect time to sport an emerald! Not only is this green gemstone the birthstone for the month of May, it’s also the inspiration for Pantone’s color of the year! The emerald’s saturated green sparkle is ideal for the season when the trees are full of leaves and the earth is full of life, and its time-honored status as a classic precious gemstone assures that its appeal isn’t going to fade anytime soon. Despite emerald’s rich history, this gem always seems to pulse with vibrancy and it gives a matchless pop of green to a wide range of emerald jewelry—from classic looks like stud earrings and three-stone rings to the following, unique emerald rings.
The rich green glimmer of emerald makes it an ideal medium for pieces with a touch of fantasy, and Apples of Gold carries several emerald rings that could have been pulled straight from a fairytale. For instance, the Mythical Emerald Ring in 14K White Gold holds a 6mm round emerald in claw-like setting that calls to mind mythical tales of knights fighting dragons to win the hearts of their one true loves. The striking openwork of this shining 14K white gold ring is meticulously crafted, making it a fitting for a princess—or for any woman with an eye for fantastic style.
The classic green gemstone is equally striking in contemporary pieces, and its vibrant hue is a fitting counterpart to modern settings. The Tension Set Emerald Engagement Ring gives the emerald a chic, minimalistic update. Although the rich green sparkle of an emerald is always fresh and vibrant, when it’s held by this piece’s unique tension setting it seems even more up-to-the-minute. A 6.5mm round emerald is cradled by two arms of shining 14K white gold that emerge from a simple gleaming band, creating a chic and striking style that’s miles away from the traditional solitaire.
Bridal jewelry that features the emerald is a lovely way to celebrate that the love you share with that one special someone is full of life and always growing. An engagement ring or bridal ring set adorned with emerald is unexpected but beautiful, as well as rich with meaning.
The Antique-Style Emerald Wedding Ring Set is a perfect example of the emerald’s ability to communicate and celebrate vibrant, always-growing love. This Victorian-inspired engagement ring and wedding band set in 14K white gold features a 4.5mm round emerald that provides richly-hued sparkle as it sits in the center of the engagement ring, in the center of a lavish motif of openwork and swirls. A slender coordinating wedding band matches the curves of its counterpart, creating a perfectly coordinated and colorful bridal look. If you prefer, the engagement ring in this set is also available on its own; in addition the entire set can be purchased in sterling silver as part of Apples of Gold’s collection of silver emerald jewelry.
There’s no shortage of unique ways to wear emerald! This vibrant green gem is far from a one-trick pony.
