Emerald is a stunning choice for an engagement ring. The rare gemstone stands out and can come in a variety of hues such as a more yellowish-green, pure green, or bluish-green. They are sourced from all over the world from countries such as Zambia, Brazil, Ethiopia, and Madagascar. Along with diamonds, sapphires, and rubies they make up the world’s four most sought-after precious stones.

They are used in various types of settings such as with diamond side stones, pavé, or halo or they are exquisite on their own in a solitaire setting. The emerald cut which is now also popularly used for diamonds was originally crafted for this gemstone to prevent breakage during faceting. Because of modern technology, they can now be cut in a variety of shapes including pear and round cuts. Yellow gold bands are a popular choice for emeralds because it brings out the color of the gem; however, white gold or platinum are also used for those wanting the gem to have a cooler tone. Ultimately the right band pairing also depends on the shade of green of the emerald.
