Are you looking for the perfect emerald engagement ring? Since emeralds are as elegant as they are eye-catching, they’ve long been a popular stone for engagement rings.

Are Emeralds Good for Engagement Rings?

"Emeralds are durable and also incredibly beautiful, making them a suitable choice for any couple seeking to include colour within their engagement ring," says Philip Spencer, founder of London DE.

Their bright, verdant hue means they are instantly eye-catching and pair wonderfully with sparkling diamonds. They also work well with different metal types, making them incredibly versatile for a coloured gemstone. 

What Does an Emerald Engagement Ring Mean?

Not only are emeralds the birthstone of May, Phillip points out that, "they are commonly thought to symbolize truth and love, making them a fitting and meaningful gemstone choice for any engagement ring."

"Some psychologists have pointed out that the colour emerald green is associated with the ability to give and receive love and have stated that it can have a calming and balancing effect - factors that lend themselves to a happy and lasting marriage! The colour emerald green is also a colour that has been linked for centuries to ideas of revitalization and rebirth, so it can be said that an emerald ring is a brilliant way to mark a proposal, as you commit your life to each other and should be a chance for revitalization as you enter into a new stage of your relationship."

Are Emerald Engagement Rings Bad Luck?

Although there are traditions that say emeralds are bad luck, it is said that the Aztecs regarded emeralds as holy, with their green colouring emitting a love of nature and harmony of the earth. In many cultures green actually symbolises good luck! 

Are Emeralds Too Soft for an Engagement Ring?

Emeralds measure 7.5 on the Mohs hardness scale, a scale used to determine the durability of stone, making them a more fragile cut. "Emeralds are softer than a sapphire which ranks nine and diamonds which rank 10, so although they are comparatively a hard gemstone, it is important that you choose s stone with little inclusions that is set well, ideally in a bezel setting," explains Phillip. 

"Emeralds might take a little more care than a diamond, ruby or sapphire, but with proper care and by choosing a gemstone with little inclusions in a good setting you can be confident that an emerald can be worn daily without any issues."
