Are Emeralds Good for Engagement Rings?

emerald engagement rings

Yes! Emeralds make beautiful stones for engagement rings. Their deep green hue makes any ring instantly stand out, and just like their more expensive friend (the diamond), they come in endless settings, cuts and styles. Whether you’re dreaming of an oval engagement ring or pear engagement ring set in yellow gold, rose gold or platinum, you’re sure to find something which fits the bill.

There is one thing you need to remember, though: not all jewellers will be keen to create bespoke emerald engagement rings because the gem is softer than most other stones. They’re fragile to cut, so if you encounter any problems, consider a tourmaline to ensure you still get your green colour fix.

What do Emeralds Signify?
